Made Dinner But Didn't Eat It

We were invited to a co-ed bridal shower for Eric and Emily tonight--there they are, to the right.
Ross and Rebecca were willing to watch the kids so we could join the party. Here's what I made for the home crowd but didn't eat:

*whole wheat spaghetti with "dump" sauce (dump a half jar of spaghetti sauce, 1/3 jar of salsa, a can of mushrooms, 3/4 pound of ground beef, garlic, and onion in a skillet, then cook and stir)
*garlic bread
*leftover veg plate with ranch from the other night
*frozen fruit "dump" pie (guess "dump" was my mood for tonight...gather frozen fruits, in this case, peaches, strawberries and "mixed berries," stir in 1/4 cup flour, 3/4 sugar, microwave for a minute or two until they're not so frozen, dump into a pie crust, top with 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3 T butter mixed together and bake at 375 for 50 minutes)

As for Aogu and I, we had pizza, salad, guacamole, chips, sparking limeade (made by me with the trusty lemonade maker that is apparently discontinued...if you want one, you better check Craig's List or EBay...) and cake that Elizabeth bought at Cafe Selmarie. Thanks for a fun party, Jim and Elizabeth, and many blessings on Eric and Emily!
