My oldest son had gotten to our house at around noon and hubby was in charge of lunch. He fried ham sandwiches and they had taco dip and chips on the side, with grapes and pears and cottage cheese and who knows what else. I wasn't there so I just shut my mind off as to the mess I was going to find when I got home but all was well. When I glanced around me almost everything was in its place.
I then put my apron on and of course, both my granddaughters had to "help" in the kitchen, so they got their aprons on and we were off and running!! To be honest, I actually didn't realize how much I had already prepared. There was way too much to eat. We had Artichoke Dip, Paulette's Jalapeno Dip, Bean Dip, Havarti and Fig Dip with French Bread, Cheeseball, Summer Sausage, Vegetables and 2 different kinds of dips, Neiman Marcus Dip, sherbert punch, caramel corn, Sausage and Cheese Balls . . . I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT ELSE . . . however, there was enough!!!
I still have my houseful today. It's been glorious but I'm somewhat - nah!! why lie - I'm exhausted . . . but I'm happy and that will take me a "fer piece"!!
Tonight we're having our family dinner with the Roast Chicken and Pheasant Au Vin. The Cinnamon Pecan Cheesecake is just about finished. I'll try to remember to get you a picture and let you know how it tastes. It should be good but this is a new recipe for me.
Tomorrow I'll have some pics of our family fun but tonight my dear friends I'm beat. Talk to you later!!
