It was a busy weekend at Casa de Envy! Friday night, Snow White worked and Cool Breeze grilled hamburgers at the local Cruise In. For those of you who aren't familiar with the whole Cruise In thing, it's a place where folks bring their antique cars for others to drool over. The testosterone is palpable.
Since they were both gone for the evening, I decided to get a jump on my cooking for Mom's birthday party. I baked a cheesecake. Not just ANY cheesecake, mind you, but the CHEESECAKE FACTORY cheesecake!! My gosh it was good! If anyone is interested, I will post the recipe another day. I also chopped tomatoes and cucumbers for the Crabtini appetizer I served at the party. Ditto on the recipe post.
My evening wasn't just fun and games people. Yes, I know, I was sipping wine and listening to the '70's station on cable; however, I also had to vacuum and do laundry. Laundry is the bane of my existence.
We were all up early Saturday to prepare for our guests. There were lots of surprises in store for Snow White's grandparents and godparents (who were visiting from Boston!!). There were also three more loads of laundry to finish.
Once everyone arrived, things really kicked into gear. Hanging out by the pool was the first order of business. Next, there were massages. Yes, massages! Some were forced to nap afterward.
The afternoon went by too quickly. We sipped Hillbilly Surprises, we ate beef tenderloin accompanied by Caesar salad, potatoes, corn and onions cooked up in Swamp Dust, and of course we had cheesecake for dessert.
I used Chinet plates, so we all gathered around the trash barrel to watch our dinner dishes burn. We didn't really do that, but there WAS a rousing game of horseshoes!
One other thing to note, The Boy With The Perfect Teeth returned home from Texas on Saturday. His father lives there, and the poor guy left the day after school got out to spend the summer with his dad. Snow White was SO excited to see him. I have to admit that I missed having him around as well. He's a great kid. Furthermore, when Snow White is happy, EVERYBODY is happy!!
How was your weekend?
