Weekend Full of Food, Fun and Furniture

Good morning. I am getting a very late start to the work day. I am only going to work half a day.

We had a wonderful weekend at my parents' house. We arrived on Friday evening around 6:30, just in time to see my sister's fiance blow up my mom's new grill. The propane tank caught on fire. It worked fine before, but this time around, we didn't have much fun. So, we opted for the charcoal, which was just as good. Our neighbors across the street came over for dinner and to watch our neighborhood light up. We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. I also made potato salad with green onions, cheese, and bacon. We had baked beans with shredded beef and deviled eggs.

On Saturday, we lounged around in the morning. My sister and my nephew came over for brunch. I made French toast, bacon, sausage, and scrambled eggs. We ate pretty late, so we skipped lunch. Most of us were able to take naps. My brother, boyfriend, and the kid went shopping and bought a badminton set. We played for awhile and I had a lot of fun! It reminded me of when I was younger. For dinner that evening, we cooked beef tenderloin fillets for dinner. My mom couldn't get over how tender the meat was. She kept going on and on, which made Josh feel good. We had crock pot corn, mashed potatoes with onion gravy, leftover potato salad and baked beans. For dessert, we had cheesecake topped with fresh fruit.

Sunday was a day of rest. Boy, did I need it. I got up early to cook breakfast. We had biscuits, bacon, and fruit. Mom made Korean food for lunch. We sat around, watched t.v., and early afternoon started to get ready to leave. We brought Josh's truck because we had to haul back some new furniture from my parents' house. I plan on putting this furniture into the guest bedroom when we move. I was so tired that on the way home, I actually fell asleep. I never fall asleep in the passenger side of Josh's truck, because it is so uncomfortable. I was just tuckered out!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I am scheduled off Thursday, so I have to make a list this week of all the things I need to get done. Lots to do, lots to do!

Sounds like you had an awesome time. It's been years since I played batmitten.

I'm so glad you had a great time with your family. Busy! And lots of good food. Mine was quiet, and most of my family is local. Badmitten? I haven't played that since I was a kid at camp. I'll have to try it again sometime.

How are things going with the planned move?

I hope you are rested up.

Sounds like a fabulous weekend! It's a shame your mom's new grill blew up, but charcoal always works just as well for my taste. Have a great week:)
