Dallas :: Part 3 :: La Casa de Christian

Callie is fortunate, just like me, to be surrounded by immediate family and we got to catch a glimpse into what their family life is like on both Memorial Day and the following day which is their normal "family night."  Callie's parents slaved away in the kitchen making two delicious meals.

Memorial Day- Brisket, roasted corn with yummy spreads, coleslaw and blackened okra...she also served chocolate cake, apricot cobbler and homemade ice cream...but I was bummed to only be able to try the ice cream since I'm still doing this gluten-free diet thing (4.5 weeks strong!)

Tuesday- Guacamole and queso with tortilla chips to start, chicken w/ apricots, polenta, asparagus, and a green salad.

Can you tell I like food? I'm sure you've guessed that by now....but to balance out the food intake us ladies also partook in 3 crossfit sessions, hosted by yours truly.

Callie's family was so welcoming, we felt right at home and those nieces and nephews had me missing Wes something sweet.

Thanks you Christians for having us in your home and for sharing your daughter with us- we loved every minute of it!
