HFP's Memorial Day House Warming Recap

Though not many as expected showed up for the house warming my roomies and I threw - mainly because almost everyone was out of town, someone else's BBQ or at one of the 8 million weddings going on, we had fun putting it together and forcing ourselves to get our place organized. I would have put up our spread against anything else going on this weekend - if there was somewhere that was throwing down better, I'd like to see some pics. I'm also very happy that I have sweet leftovers this week. Aileen, one of my roomies totally rocked the desserts. Just to show everyone what they missed out on, here's a little food recap:

Doesn't it suck that you weren't eating me.

"Daddy wants to..." Wait, wrong velvet color.

We didn't even bother asking if people got enough to eat.
