Whew...what a weekend

I'm not really sure where the weekend has gone, but it is suddenly Sunday. Our friends from Michigan arrived Thursday afternoon and just headed off to the airport this morning. It was so great seeing them! Next time we have to return the favor and head their way....

Thursday was spent just hanging out, panini's for lunch and homemade pizza for dinner. No pics, sorry, I forgot almost all weekend! Bad blogger.

Friday we headed to the outlet mall, then another mall for lunch (Chick-fil-A!) and more shopping, and finally back home to rest before we headed to dinner at Granite City. They had never been, so we took them, as it is one of our favorite restaurants.

I tried a new dish, Bock and Cheese Pasta. It was heavenly. The cheese sauce had some of their brewed beer in it, along with grilled chicken. OMG, I would have loved to eat more the next day for lunch, but someone (husband) ate it. I know...shocking.

We did manage to get a group shot though!

Last night we invited friends over and oh my goodness the food was in abundance. Once again I forgot to take pictures but let's visualize - spinach artichoke dip, buffalo wing dip, barbecued little smokies, grilled deer loin (yuck, in my opinion, but all the boys loved it), almond flavored pound cake dipped in chocolate fondue, sour cream chocolate cake, sun dried tomato cheese ball, and oh so much more.

We were stuffed...but it was worth it.

All in all, a great weekend, full of food, friends and fun. Anyone else eat too much this weekend?

  2. Ally - I think I gained about 10 lbs visiting you! But the goodies you made were so dang good and Garnite City was yummy. Back to reality today - and on the diet band wagon too :)
