Friday night fun

After reading Tara's post a while back about making a list at the beginning of the year of families to invite over for dinner and get to know a little better, Kelvin and I thought it sounded like a good idea for us to try. We made our list, and last night one of the families on our list joined us for dinner. We had a great time of fellowship and enjoyed the evening around the fire pit after dinner.  (One of my favorite things in the world.) Kelvin and I kept the menu simple and cooked the same yummy sandwiches from last week, heated some delicious Alexia rosemary fries, and whipped up some AMAZING dessert, which was a good choice for a busy Friday. I also bought a few ripe avocados and mashed them up, added some salt and a squeeze of lime and put it out with some corn chips for an easy appetizer. Of course, I forgot to take pictures, but I do have a few of my little chef helping me make the Best Ever Homemade Brownies we served for dessert.

She is a ham bone, y'all! 

I'm not sure what we have working with the arm, but she's cute!

Can't very well go wrong with these ingredients, huh?

And here's what remained this morning 

Sooooo, we all had some for dessert after breakfast...

because it's Saturday...and we can. ;)

A couple of things I noted for the brownies in parenthesis

1 stick butter (room temperature)

4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 can Hershey’s syrup (or 1 1/2 cups from the Hershey's bottle if you can't find the can)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup plus 1 T. flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional (I put walnuts on half of the pan. YUM!)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Have a good Saturday. xo
