You could smell it from the driveway. And not is a bad way...(gotta love a man that cooks!)
A sirloin roast, in the oven, sprinkled with whatever concoction he puts on it to make me think of good times with good food and good friends.
Rachael's birthday was on Monday the 15th, and we usually see them on Saturdays. So, last Saturday, we said "Why don't we have a little cook-out to celebrate your birthday...ah..late??"
She said "OK"
Mr. B said, "well, why don't we invite Jenny, Brooks and the boys over?"
I said "That'll be good...we should ask Rachael's parents, Pam & Steve..."
"Yeah, we haven't seen them in quite a while..it'll be fun and I can always throw another burger on the grill.."
"No problem. We've got plenty of room - we can always set up another table outside.."
Seems we let everyone know, maybe with the exception of Mother nature. Rain in the forcast for Saturday.
Change in plans - the simple cook-out turned inside- and why serve hamburgers if you can't grill them...and why have just anything when you have good friends and family coming over..and one thing led to another..and another..and .....this is the result -(and oh, by the way, no rain. Nope. Nada. )
Beef roast w/ Horseradish Sauce
Mixed Veggies (straight from Sacha's garden!)
Cherry Yogurt Pie
Key Lime Yogurt Pie
I don't know why I didn't take photos of the food- I usually do - I think I was too hungry to take the time to take pictures!
Grandma Evelyn found this darling "cake" that was actually a combo of white cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes! They were a big hit...they smelled good..heavy sigh...
I said "lean in and act like you like each other..
Jeff & Rachael - and Brahm...
Steve & Pam...and Brahm..
Grandma Evelyn & Sacha...hey where's Brahm??
Oh, here he is..with Oliver trying to give himself bunny-ears..
(and, no, that's not a beer on their table..Cream Soda..yeah, you know you were thinking it was beer..you totally were..ah huh)
Jenny was out of town, so I told Mr. B and Brooks to "act like you like each other"..
