And by fun, I mostly mean food. I already told you how fabulous the grocery was there. Now check out this fantastic spread my cousin put together for a family party.
(I know it’s dark, but it was night there.)
Homemade meatballs in sweet sauce:
Funeral sandwiches – I will need to get you the recipe for this. They were ham and cheese on Hawaiian rolls, baked with some kind of amazing glaze.
Corn and bean salsa:
Have you ever had these things? They are dill pickles wrapped in cream cheese and dried beef. Soooo good.
St. Louis gooey butter cake – I’ll have this recipe for you Thursday.
Chocolate peanut butter bars – delectable.
Here’s my beautiful Aunt Susie. Love her.
And my cousins and me:
Jenny, on the left, is the one who hosted the party. It was for at least 20 people, and she has four kids under 10, and she did all the prep and cooking herself. whew. I forgot to take a picture of the Whiskey Sour slush she also made. I needed a few of those after just thinking about doing all that work with four kids running around.
I sincerely hope all of you have a family as nice as mine.
