If I Knew You Were Coming I'd've Bought A Cake


We had a couple of friends over last night. Blondie and I did our best to prepare them a nice home-cooked meal. We bought steaks and grilled them. We also bought some lovely potato salad, a prepared Caesar Salad kit (complete with dressing), a pre-washed and cut salad plate, and a box of crackers. Unfortunately, the Vermont cheddar cheese, while delicious, was not pre-sliced. I won't make that mistake again.

In order to save time, Blondie added the Caesar dressing around 3:00 in the afternoon. We ate at 6:00. Who knew that Romaine was not quite as sturdy as it looks in the package? Oh well.

After supper, we built a fire and brought out a bowl of pre-popped kettle corn and some peanut butter cups. We are a bit tired today but it was worth the effort.

Have a lovely Sunday all.

That's my kind of meal prep... although I wouldn't even grill the steaks... I'd invite someone else to do that.

Trader Joe's has this chocolate ganache in the freezer section that is to die for! I like to serve that to guests, and tell them I slaved all day over it.

Love how you think Chewy. My kind of gal.

Umm Solo - not so much here in New England. Although it is supposed to warm back up this weekend! I miss Texas.

Hey Tara! Great suggestion! Because if I actually had to make anything called 'ganache', I'm sure it would be a totally disaster.
