A couple weekends ago (WOW time flies!), Sharon and Andy had us over for dinner.
Right, yeah. That's really what it was all about.
For the real story, check here (including a great pic of me making manure!)...
Anyhow, part of the deal was we were getting treated to a nice homecooked meal - we just had to bring some fruit to have along with it. Sharon loves howI cut pineapple, using my dad's style (which he picked up somewhere while we were in Hawaii). Rather than cut the pineapple at home, releasing all those juices, and then having Brett be a sticky mess from holding it en route, I just figured I'd cut it there. Check back later for a brief tutorial on how to put your pineapple out on display! (And it helps to have an assistant, like Andy here!) (Ok, you don't really need an assistant)
Here's the feast! Check out Sharon's yummy "marinated" sandwiches - a recipe her sister Denise passed along. These ROCKED! Sharon used two different meats and two different cheese, totalling four possible combinations of fillings in any sandwich. They were seriously good!
The (super tasty) pineapple and (lackluster) strawberries for our "veggie course"...
And Sharon's version of Martha Stewart's mac n cheese - yum! This was good stuff!
"Can we EAT NOW!?!?"
It didn't take too long before the pan-o-sandwiches looked more like this...
Andy looking smug!
Sharon not wanting her picture taken...
After dinner Sharon wanted to try out her new old Food Saver on the leftovers (she just got it from Craig's list, so it's new. it'd never been opened, but as far as we can tell, it's several versions older than MY several years old Food Saver - so it's old). Voila - shrinkwrapped mac n cheese!
Thanks for such a good dinner! Oh, and dessert - Sharon and I had smores over the firepit, plus we all had some of her homemade choc chip mint ice cream! MMM!
