Dinner Guests

We've had a busy weekend so far.  On Friday when we got home from work, we quickly changed, ate a little something, and headed out on the town, as Christopher's band was playing.  We got home just before midnight, and ordered a pizza in. 

On Saturday morning Christopher went to work for a while, and I started prepping for the dinner we'd be having that evening.


Two of our most favourite people ever, Christopher's brother Steve and his wife Mel, came over for dinner.  When they first arrived we snacked on maple bacon popcorn, and bacon-wrapped, stuffed jalapenos.

Next up was crispy polenta with eggplant and smoked cheddar, an appetizer we've been making for a while now, because we just can't get enough.

The main course also included dishes we've made numerous times, our Southern staples of fried chicken, mac and cheese, baked beans, bourbon bacon coleslaw, and cornbread.

Dessert was just simple apple crisp with ice cream.

Nothin' fancy about this dinner, but it is definitely comfort food.  With being out the night before, and Christopher signed up for Saturday overtime, we didn't have too much time, so we planned a meal we could make with our eyes closed.

We had a wonderful time catching up with Mel and Steve, who we hadn't seen since Christmas.  Time goes by so quickly, we didn't even realize it had been that long.

It was nice to sleep in this morning, and we've spent the day relaxing

How was your weekend?  What did you do?

Yum, that food looks delicious! I don't think your guests would know that this is a meal you could pull off in your sleep. It looks delicious!

I had a busy weekend of wedding crafting with my family! We made all of our center pieces which was a lot of work! I'm pretty pooped. I made brunch on Saturday and Sunday and made salads with lots of toppings for lunch yesterday.
