We had a nice, relaxing weekend… Filled with house cleaning, laundry, schoolwork, and trips to Trader Joe’s & Target. Is it sad that this makes me really happy?
Sunday night, Jeff’s parents and two of the four Whittaker kids were back home from a trip to New Orleans, and so we celebrated! A welcome-home for the family and belated birthday celebration for Karen. My sister-in-law, Kelly, and I split the cooking duties, and I have to say that the dinner was delicious!
Kelly made Pioneer Woman’s Olive Cheese Bread for an appetizer… and I could have eaten it for my meal (and I don’t even like olives usually!) This is a must-make-again in my book, and I love Kelly’s thoughts on pairing this with a nice tomato soup or salad for an easy dinner.
Kelly also brought Pioneer Woman’s Rosemary Potatoes as a side… So rich and delicious! I could definitely see this as a great holiday dinner side dish.
Finally, Jeff and I paired up to make some chicken and veggie kabobs. Marinated overnight in Trader Joe’s organic Italian dressing and cooked to perfection by the hubs.
We had a great time relaxing and celebrating this weekend! Now back to the work-week...
