As you can imagine, I love having the family over and around, and love being with the kids and grandkids and parents and all. So these family dinners are right up my alley. I do want to capture our food and fun occasionally, though! We are only beginning these gatherings, and so far we have had hot sandwiches at several of our dinners, yummy ones for sure, with veggies and salads on the side. We have also had some danged good desserts, starting with Aunt Sophie's Texas Sheet Cake and going on to include Chocolate Cupcakes (perfect for after school snacks) and Chocolate Chip Cookies (perfect for lunches too!).
Last dinner we managed to have something different (as in, NOT sandwiches) - Chicken and Dumplings - and I got a few pictures just as the last bites were being eaten. I found the recipe on the internet here, and it was super duper good.
This week the menu is Roasted Chicken, Green Beans, and Mashed Potatoes. Dessert? Banana Pudding Squares. Sound yummy? I think so.
This week I will try to do better and get some before and during pictures to share!!!
