So this weekend was a mega busy but very fun filled weekend! Friday night Matt & I went over to our good friends Mike & Allison’s for pizza, cookies and Taboo!!! It was a fun relaxing night, then Saturday night we watched Avatar while we had dinner at the Moore Warren Balcony which you already know my thoughts on if you read my prior post!! Then Sunday was packed…..we cleaned, re-arranged and cooked all day!!! We hosted my family for my mothers 50th Birthday party!!!!! I live in the little house that could……and it did!
Here my mom is loving her big gift from Matt, me and our animals…a Le Crueset Apple colored stock pot!!!
Abner is a equal opportunity lover…..here he is snagging some down time with Marissa and Garrett!
Since I do not have a dining room just a table in our kitchen we had to drag out our folding table and chairs for this occasion!!! To try and make it a bit nicer we got a poinsettia and a holiday tablecloth….this was Matt, me, Marissa and Garrett’s table…yup, the kid table smack dab in between the Christmas tree, TV and Fireplace!! ha
Ok, I apologize I only took a few pictures of the meal because I was soo busy but if you do not mind I am going to brag on myself for just a minute… I carefully planned this meal with the help of recipes from fellow blogger and friend Christen Foster and then the Pioneer Woman!! But man oh man I really out did myself, this was sooo good that I would of been happy to pay big bucks for this exact meal at a 5 star restaurant! I am not joking and I am not trying to be boastful but after hours of cooking my hard work was well worth it!!!!!!
Mushroom, spinach and Parmesan stuffed pork tenderloin with a homemade pan gravy!!!
Then for dessert I made Homemade mulled Apple Cider with cinnamon sticks and then the most delectable cake……..Tres Leche which means “Three Milks” cake! I must say this cake took over 2 1/2 hours of prep work, baking and assembly…one of the more advanced desserts I have made but SOO GOOD! The entire cake was eaten last night!!! You top the homemade whipped cream with chopped cherries in vanilla!
