Aarti Paarti!

Normal, functioning members of society get excited about things like the World Series and the Superbowl. I get excited about the finale of Next Food Network Star. Especially because I found most of the contestants this time around so darn likable. I started out rooting for Aria, but then I realized how unspeakably lovely Aarti is. Week after week, Jared and I would watch together, hoping Aarti would win. But even before we knew who the winner was, I decided to throw my own little Aarti Paarti:

For the occasion, I made chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes.

And fruit salad with a mint almond dressing.

Here are Jared and Dylan manning the grill.

We made grilled pizzas with pesto, broccoli and tomatoes. There was also some seriously delicious asparagus and bruschetta.

I made everyone pose with the food before I let us eat in peace.

I obviously had to have a picture with my best friend, too.

This adorable ladybug decided to join our dinner.

Awaiting the verdict...

I leave you with our ridiculous reaction to the big reveal. Hahah, we're all insane.
