Happy Friday Friends, Well wouldn't you know it-last night our friends arrived and we got so caught up talking and finishing dinner, that I totally forgot to take pictures of it all. It was really good and I would definitely make the beef dish again; hubby likes thicker gravy, so I would add more cornstarch to thicken it. We have enough mashed potatoes left over to make Potato Pancakes-guess we will have leftovers tonight. The mouse was good, I did remember to snap this thankfully.

It was light and heavenly; not too much chocolate though. After dinner and dessert we played Shanghai and our friends pretty much kicked our ____________'s. But the last hand found me going from last place to tied for first-yes! Love it when a plan comes together; if you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell you. Our friends left around 9:00-they had an hour drive, so hubby and I got the kitchen all cleaned up and dishes put away. Hunter and I are going walking now and then hubby and I will work on the basement-making it easier to pack and stack boxes. Hope you have an incredible weekend!


  1. I am so glad you had a good time! Pooh on the photos, though, LOL. Make it again soon!
    Good luck on the basement! Once you get the storage area(s) organized, its easier to deal with the rest of it.

  2. No Pix, well that means you too (the cook) had a good time. Result! Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly
