My in-laws are coming for dinner tonight. We cleaned the house! Not to say that we don't clean the house unless people are coming over, but when people are coming over, we clean EXTRA hard! I mopped all the tile floors (kitchen, dining room, hallway). Recently we ripped up the disgusting carpet in the living room, and we will be tiling that soon (I hope). I Hate Carpets. They collect dirt, they never feel clean after the first day. They collect dust mites and cat hair, that you can never really get rid of. I want ALL my floors to be bare! I'd rather mop than rent carpet cleaners!
So: what is the menu for tonight?
hamburgers, on buns (personally, I could do without, but everybody else likes them)
Giant Salad, with everything on it, and a homemade dressing that my husband makes
Chips (it's summer)
Ice Tea (again, it's summer)
My 13 year old son, the chef, is going to make strawberries dipped in milk chocolate - YUM
Mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, rasberries)
POUND CAKE! With home-made whipped cream.
A Paula Deene recipe. You can find it on the food network website.
2 sticks of butter, 6 eggs, heavy cream !!! My son and I licked the bowl. It is still cooking.....
