Friends, Food and Fun

While we were on vacation, some new friends of ours took care of our dog and cat (oh and fish). I got them a gift card as a thanks but tonight we are also having them over for dinner. Here's the menu:

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Hot-Artichoke-and-Spinach-Dip-II/Detail.aspx for starters
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Barbecue-Beef-Cups/Detail.aspx For the kids
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Burrito-Pie/Detail.aspx Main dish
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Avocado-and-Tomato-Salad/Detail.aspx for color and lightness
and
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Pecan-Pie-V/Detail.aspx Which is, hands down the best pecan pie I've ever had.

Of course today I have to work field day for both girls and take the boy to swim lessons. Not really sure when I'm making everything. The dip is done so maybe I'll just load them up on booze and dip when they get here and cook and talk at the same time? It's a thought.

Nothing really going on here. Just winding down the school year here to immediately get ready for the next one (track system is weird). I'm off to start my day. Wish me luck. Hope you all have a wonderful day too.

    You can skimp on the food even ask for help making the food as long as the booze is good and plentiful.

    Sounds like you need skates to keep up with the kids.

    I say go with your idea of boozing them up and cooking then. I wouldn't stress about it either way. My mom always gets so stressed about things that really aren't a big deal and I never understand it.
