Cooking is even better when done with good company! Last night we went to Aaryn’s and were greeted by her smiling face, roomate’s crazy dog and this gorgeous appetizer plate!

Ty whipped up jambalaya with chicken apple sausage and we made some kale that I bought at the farmer’s market the weekend before. We all tuned into the latest episode of Biggest Loser and topped it off with a great dessert – Trader Joe’s vanilla ice cream with their cinnamon graham crackers. Genius combination!

The best meals do not need to be fancy or full of ingredients. All you need are good friends, a little musica and oh yeah – ice cream!
