What's Cooking

Well, we had another jam packed weekend. The highlight was Jon, Josh and Jordan cooking up a birthday feast for Jon on Sunday. To prepare, on Saturday, Jon built another table to put beside our table and increase the seating capacity by double.

We had fun getting the table ready and decorated. We created little menus to put on each placesetting.

The guys had a blast cooking up in the kitchen, restaurant style. I think the results were pretty tasty too!

We started with some shrimp skewers and homemade chips and salsa. Both really yummy!

Then we moved on to the first course - Roasted Pork Tacos with grilled corn salad. Delicious!

Next we had mini burgers, where we could pick the kind we wanted - Hickory style, Baja or Build-Your-Own with homemade french fries. Can't go wrong with that!!

Dessert was a choice of root beer floats or chocolate shakes, both with homemade ice cream. To die for!!

We had my sister and her husband, my brother and his wife, two of Jon's brothers and their wives and our friend Jordan and his wife Emily over for the dinner. Our conversations seemed to steer toward babies and related topics since two of the wives are pregnant, two have young babies and one has two children. Kind of funny! A couple of years ago, all we could talk about was the trips were going to take and the movies we had recently seen. Such a shift!
