Gilmore Girls Dinner

 We had an all day Gilmore event watching Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life!  We laughed, we cried, we ate, and then ate all of our feelings.  
Don't worry, no spoilers!

My dad, dressed like Luke, serving up coffee, pop tarts, and burgers.

Here's Olivia in a newspaper hat--- just like Rory!

For breakfast, we had Luke's Coffee and Pop Tarts.  For lunch, we had Luke's Diner's Bacon Cheeseburgers and more coffee.  For dinner, we had Sookie's Magic Risotto, Al's Pancake World's Lo Mein, and Founder's Day Punch.  For dessert, we had Taylor Doose's Ice Cream Parlor Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Luke's Coffee and Pop Tarts

Luke's Diner's Bacon Cheeseburgers

We just got Bacon Cheese Burger patties from the grocery store. My dad cooked them up on a skillet.  They were so good!

With coffee! (of course!)

Sookie's Magic Risotto

My Try the World: Italy box came with an excellent risotto mix!  I added in truffle zest which was amazing!
