I am not exaggerating when I tell you that last night was my all time favorite Sunday family dinner night. This means that you have to endure through more pictures than normal because it was just that good.
Either he is scared or really confused by the story she was telling him….
Things started out on the right note with macademia nut encrusted chicken (pound chicken, dip in egg wash, coat chicken with crushed up macademia nuts, pan fry chicken in olive oil for a few minutes in a pan and then bake), potatoes, rolls (good sign when the roll is bigger than the potato), salad and fruit with cool whip.
Dessert was made by my cousin……..chocolate pie!! Not gonna lie, it did make me think of The Help for a second and I tried to remember if I had done anything in the past to make my cousin mad before I ate it;)
The pie was INCREDIBLE. She used THIS RECIPE. All pie should have meringue on top.
My mom received a text on Saturday night from my aunt saying that she got stuff for Janae and the kids (somehow, I always get put into the same category as the children) to do a Halloween craft. I may have gotten a little into it and by the time I was done I was sweating and only burned my hand on the glue gun 3 times. The kids never burned their hands once…..hmmmmmm.
The apple head will shrivel within the next few days and look a little more witchy. Please note the awesome broom and cape. (We ran out of matching eye balls and I let the kids have first pick….Billy told me that that was very mature of me. I will probably go to the store later on today and get matching ones).
My cousins and her friend made a one-eyed wizard with matching mustaches.
We really get into crafts.
The black cat creeping around the house really helped put us into the Halloween spirit.
Do you have a cat? Have you ever owned a cat?
-We had one when I was really little but that is the only time.
Did you go trick-or-treating as a kid? How old did you trick-or-treat until?
-Every year! I stopped in 8th grade except for a few people in my parents neighborhood that we are good friends with that I go to every year still;)
Any fun Halloween crafts or Halloween themed food/treats you can share with everyone in the comments. Link away!!!
Would you rather have a FRUIT pie or a chocolate/banana/coconut CREAM type pie?
-I am all about the cream pies.
