This 2nd Sunday was a bit of a challenge with my granddaughter having problems and in the NICU. Luckily Stan and Dallin were a tremendous help with the grandkids, deep cleaning the house, shopping and cooking.
We really look forward to 2nd Sundays. It is a day we open our home to the neighbors to come, bring friends and eat great food. We never know who will come, or how many will drop in, so it is an exciting adventure every month. Stan and I are always amazed and thrilled at the experience we have in our home because of this event.
My challenge is making food that is delish, affordable and easily done mostly ahead of time. This month I served:
- Sloppy Joes*
- Pasta Salad with Italian Dressing and Olives
- Spinach Salad with homemade dressing, mandarin oranges and fresh strawberries
- Homemade Oreo Cookies*
- Peanut Butter Bars*
- Key Lime Poke Cake
*These recipes are in my cookbook, Carrie’s Cooking For Keeps
Recognize a blessing and be a blessing today
