Check Out The #ShareSabra Blogger Dinner


So much of our lives these days are set around our computer or another digital device.  Most of our communication takes place through email, texting and sometimes voice or video calls.  As someone who works from a home office, it is nice to have the chance to get out for a night and it always nice to get to see all the bloggers we work with and email with in person once in a while.  It is especially great when a bunch of foodies get together for a pot luck style dinner featuring Sabra recipes.   With a food demo, a prop swap, Israeli wines and lots of food, we had a great time.  Some of you may have followed along on social media with #ShareSabra and here is the full recap, recipes and all!!

You can see even more pictures over on our Facebook page here.

prop swap

Some of us traded props in our Prop Swap, where we brought dishes and/or napkins that we are sick of using in our food photos and traded them in for someone else's props - we had so much fun.
