On Saturday of this past weekend, both Kevin and I enjoyed the gorgeous weather by spending it at my cousin Joe's (pictured below) graduation party. Joe just graduated from St. Xavier University on Chicago's south side. He made us all proud graduating with a bachelor's degree in education.
That being said, this wouldn't be a food blog if I weren't going to talk about the most important part - the food! Joe's mom, my aunt Marian (Menoor, to those that regularly read the blog), gave him the choice of any food he wanted. First of all, with my family, most people would think Italian - pasta, sausage, or meatballs, but no. The second most obvious choice would be a barbeque - hot dogs, hamburgers, or potato salad, but no. Let's go with the third most obvious choice, Chinese - how unique! Not to mention, one of our favorite foods.
And now on to dessert! One of my aunt's specialties are chocolate-dipped strawberries. She will make them by the dozens. Typically they are made with white or milk chocolate and she always finds the juiciest berries. She also made chocolate covered bananas. My personal favorite. In addition to those, there were chocolate-dipped fortune cookies, a great chocolate cake, and Coldstone Creamery ice cream cupcakes in a chocolate shell.
