B.Y.O.D Blogging Potluck

by Meghann on July 26, 2009

It was B.Y.O.D. tonight at Healthy Ashley’s house.


B.Y.O.D = Bring Your Own Dog ๐Ÿ™‚

When Ashley invited us all over for a Blogging Potluck tonight, she made sure to invite all the puppies as well. Abbie had a blast playing with her cousin Oliver and new friend Dixie.


Of course getting a picture of all them together was impossible.


The were literally running in circles the whole time we were there. Abbie was able to hold her own against the puppies, but she barely made it to the car before calling it quits. They wore her out!

You have to love twittering and blogging. Last Thursday Ashely ‘tweeted’ if any Orlando bloggers were up for doing something cheap and fun this weekend. Of course I was game! We threw some ideas around Ashley was the gracious host offering up her house for a Potluck. A vegan potluck I might add!


Ashley made Snobby Joes


Megan made a beautiful Salad


Kelly brought a vegetable & hummus casserole


I brought Yucca Fries. I can’t believe none of the other girls have had Yucca Fries before!


I’m happy to say they were a hit and everyone gobbled them up. For the yucca fries all you need to do is cut the yucca in fry shapes and bake in the oven at 425 for 30 minutes with some S&P.

I had a little sample of everything on my plate.


For dessert Kelly made cookies.


These things are dangerous! I kept picking at the cookies left in the container while we were talking. I had to close the lid and hide them from me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I believe it was a non-stop chat fest between us girls the entire time. It’s amazing how many things we have in common, there are endless amounts of topics we could have just gone on and on about.

Eventually we did break out Catch Phrase.


A GREAT game if you’re looking for a crowd pleaser.


Megan won by just a hair!


Sadly it is a work night and the party had to end. ๐Ÿ™ I look forward to hanging out with these girls again very soon. We have lots of parties, meet ups, races and bike rides planned for the near future.

How fun! All the food looks great too. After seeing the yucca fries on your blog and Tina’s I’m really interested to try them.

Everything looks delicious! For the yucca fries, just salt and pepper? Or should I also put on a sprinkle of olive oil?
