I made chili, and here's a shocker.....another loaf of homemade bread! This one was a recipe that Maryrose had read off to me from her bread machine cookbook. It sounded yummy over the phone, and once again. it did NOT disappoint!!!!! Here is a picture of the bread fresh out of the oven.
Can I just tell you.........the smell of this bread from start to finish was heavenly. It is made with flat beer, and the zippity doo dah in it was sliced chives and bacon!!!!!! HELLO!!! Suffice it to say, it was goooooood!!! It was so good, that I sent what was leftover home with my kids, leaving only enough for each of us to have one slice with dinner tonight. Here is what went into this fluffy loaf of heaven:
So, I made chili, and Gennifer and Jake brought this yummy chicken appy. And of course, the typical array of chips and dips, and Drew and Diana went to get the gigantic hot wings pack we ordered, containing 4 types of wings, 6 sauces, sweet and salty fries, relish dish, and baked beans. This was such a hit that no one saved room for chili!
And for dessert, I had planned a little project for my granddaughter Hannah and I to make.
Mixing, spreading, tasting........
Double fisted tasting......
Little Claire getting in on the action.
And Gennifer felt a little left out until she got up on the chair to help too.
And the finished pizza.
Then a little chocolate gets drizzled on top, and finally, a bit of whipped cream to garnish.
I fogot to take a picture of a piece with the whip garnish. You can't tell very well here, but there is chocolate drizzled on top.
My kids were never cake lovers, so we did everything from dessert pizza to glazed doughnut towers, and brownie sundaes for birthdays. This was a Grover household favorite.
And today........I am taking a very long, very brisk walk!!!!!!!!!!
