This month’s Supper Club was simply delightful! I really was, as usual, looking forward to seeing my favorite peoples, and really looking forward to Ashley’s spread of delicious food. She always has the best ideas..and is quite sneaky in the fact that she refuses to ‘pin’ anything she thinks she would like to incorporate into her dinner meal.
Look at this fun summery tablescape. If you remember this scape back in January.. it doesn’t surprise me that she had yet another beautiful display in accordance to the season. Her color choice screeeams Ashley- yellow is her favorite color- and so perfect for this time of year.
The July Menu

Ash always does THE best job with her appetizers. She and I have a thing for the apps. I am so thankful my friends love the idea of the appetizer. Some people just aren’t into them much, but, oh.. I am. and so is Ashley. The Artichoke and Garlic Dip was a hit- seriously delicious. You could have handed me a spoon and I’d be set for the night. I could have eaten 25 of those Greek Skewers, too. Yum!
In honor of the fact that 50% of the females in our group are preggo, Ashley so sweetly made two versions of her Watermelon Lemonade. The boys stuck with their man beverages (i.e. beer). They weren’t too keen to sipping on a drink with a fruity garnish.
I don’t know though. I wouldn’t put it past my Fireman.
Now time for the main event! Another thing my bestest and I have in common? Our love for the Greek Gyro. Good gracious, I could eat one everyday.
And Ashley could to. I was super pumped when I learned the main entree was Chicken Gyros- Suh-WEET! She found a recipe for a skinny version- and let me just say- it did not taste skinny. I think the rest of the group would agree- it was so good!
The Orzo Salad was my other favorite- I requested a ‘doggie bag’ for the road. Lunch for the next day? Yes, please and thank you!
After dinner it was time for dessert. A couple weeks back Travis celebrated his big 3-0! Ashley took it upon herself to pick up one of the best cakes, ever! Nothing Bundt Cakes are amazing- we love them, for sure.
White Chocolate Raspberry is one of the best flavors, along with the Lemon and I also like the Marble Cake, too. In fact- you bring me any flavor and I’ll be a happy girl.
Happy Birthday, Trav! Landon got in on the action to help Daddy with his candle blowing- so sweet!
Yet another fun meal shared with our special friends. I’ve said it before- I love hanging out with them- and of course over a delicious meal makes it all the more wonderful.
Thanks Ashley for cooking up a fancy spread for all of us! You have outdone yourself, woman!
I am impatiently waiting for next month’s Supper Club at the Cabrera’s- Gender Reveal of her sweet baby! Eeeeeek! Can’t wait!
