Fun Night...and Lazy Day...

Joined up with some women friends at a church function at one of their homes - our annual "Getaway" night. It was so fun! Everyone was invited to stay the night - but only ten out of 21 did.

Dinner was the big thing (of course, it was! I love food! And good food even more!) - and was it good! Chicken with veggie kabobs and steak with veggie kabobs, awesome homemade potato salad, a green salad (it was good - even though it had green peas), fresh baked bread, chips, and a really interesting dessert. (And, I had been craving potato salad for about a week!)

Okay, the dessert was a pie which is supposed to freeze...but, it didn't - and I think it was even better that way. And, easy! I intend to make some for here at home - mainly cause it is so refreshing.

It takes 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, one large tub of cool whip, and two frozen things of lemonade and pink lemonade (one each - defrosted)...mix it all together and toss it into graham cracker pie crust. And toss in the freezer. We had a bit left over - so we just poured that into paper cups. That's what I had - not big on pie crust...oh, it was soooooo good.

Had a new sleeping bag! Had no idea I didn't own one until I needed it for this week-end. So, I got one - and it was warm and toasty! Slept really well (which should translate to like a rock) - even though there was laughter and conversation all around me as four unnamed people stayed up all night long playing games!

It was a fun evening...and a great de-stresser for me after the past few weeks we have gone through as a family. It is always fun to share time with friends!!!

Came home to spend a lazy day knitting and watching tv...and listening to Killian whine that his "mommy" wasn't home last night...
