On Saturday morning Christopher went to work for a while, and I started prepping for the dinner we'd be having that evening.
Two of our most favourite people ever, Christopher's brother Steve and his wife Mel, came over for dinner. When they first arrived we snacked on maple bacon popcorn, and bacon-wrapped, stuffed jalapenos.
Next up was crispy polenta with eggplant and smoked cheddar, an appetizer we've been making for a while now, because we just can't get enough.
The main course also included dishes we've made numerous times, our Southern staples of fried chicken, mac and cheese, baked beans, bourbon bacon coleslaw, and cornbread.
Dessert was just simple apple crisp with ice cream.
Nothin' fancy about this dinner, but it is definitely comfort food. With being out the night before, and Christopher signed up for Saturday overtime, we didn't have too much time, so we planned a meal we could make with our eyes closed.
We had a wonderful time catching up with Mel and Steve, who we hadn't seen since Christmas. Time goes by so quickly, we didn't even realize it had been that long.
It was nice to sleep in this morning, and we've spent the day relaxing.
How was your weekend? What did you do?
