For those of you here in the States, I hope you enjoyed a very restful holiday weekend.
Did you do a lot of cooking? Lounging? Swimming? Sunning?
I did all of the above. Let me just tell you, I haven’t enjoyed a holiday weekend like I did this one in a long time. It was such a relaxing weekend full of friends, fun and sun.
We had people over last night for a pot-luck (or carry-in if you’re from the Midwest).
In case you don’t know, that’s where everyone brings a dish… typically you end up with this crazy assortment of food, but somehow this time, we all seemed to coordinate quite well.
I made the main dish and had people bring different sides/desserts….
If you know two things about it’s this:
1. I’m Texan… therefore, I was born eating red meat.
2. Bacon is my addiction.
I made Bacon Sliders yesterday, but only because I was inspired by the meatloaf I made last week…
It was delicious. Unfortunately, yours truly was a total space cadet and forgot to put it away that night and it ended up spoiling… whomp, whomp. Definitely a bummer since this meatloaf was the bomb!
Here’s what I made last night… they were served on little slider buns (so cute!) but I snapped this pic after everyone had eaten… meaning most of the slider buns had disappeared.
I used both recipes from The Pioneer Woman and adapted them to my liking.
They’re both definite summer foods and are like magic…. meaning they disappear before your eyes.
Happy back to work Tuesday!
