My daughter, Lindsay and the kids were able to join us. My DS, Cathy and BIL, Eddie were there. Mom and Cathy made a trip to Fresh Market yesterday and got some snacks for today. Here Lexi is sampling the Autumn Mix, not quite herself today, but I did get a little smile.
Another shot of Lexi being kind of pout-y for no particular reason.
I just love the little faces Mary makes. We are starting to see more of her personality.
Now for the snacks, while dinner finishes cooking. This is a shot of the Autumn Mix. I am assuming it was from Fresh Market, but not entirely sure. It is candy corn, white raisins, peanuts and reese's pieces. I have a recipe for another Autumn snack mix, I will try to post later.
Peanut Butter Pretzels
And Sesame Sticks. I love these. These are plain but they also have a spicy and a sweet version, I love them all.
For the meat eaters, there was chicken, steak and barbecued ribs.
Fresh from the garden cherry tomatoes,
Mushroom Tortellini with veggies,
Baked Mac and Cheese
And Macaroni Salad
This is my plate. It's looks like a big sample platter; it needs some more green.
Afterwards we had assorted donuts from Dunkin Donuts and mini muffins from Fresh Market (not sure what kind, but they were maybe pumpkin spice or something similar and very good). There was also some big muffins from Dunkin Donuts that I forgot to get a shot of which were similar in taste to the mini's w/o the creamy icing; again very good and I got to have coffee, because it was decaf and very good. BTW despite waking up with back trouble, I slept very well after not having regular coffee with breakfast yesterday.
This is my sample platter of dessert. The muffins were the best.
