She arrive kinda late on Saturday - we had a yummy dinner of left over BBQ beef, smoked bratwurst, macaroni and cheese, sauteed asparagus & mushrooms, and cesar salad - she ate it all up except the mac & cheese. (weirdo)
Eating ice cream ~ with green sprinkles ~ of course =D
|happy crabby land|
We had a delicious breakfast - bacon, fried apples with cinnamon and candied ginger YUM! with scramble eggs and ice cream =) yup, I am the cool aunt - we eat ice cream for breakfast AND after dinner... we might have, on occasion had ice cream with lunch as well... perhaps. 8)
|round 2 - note to self she is a 2 egg kinda girl|
I was so excited when I found Miss B. Couture - she is AWESOME! thorough, simple directions - very cute outfits - we want to make them all!!!
|just getting started ~ thanks to http://www.missbcouture.com|
|almost done ~ just needs some velcro fastener sew on the back|
Sew cute - right?
While we worked on our sewing she helped me make this amazing crock pot beef stew ~ we totally cheated used one of those McCormick beef stew packs, 3 lbs of chuck roast beef chunks (browned in a bit of olive oil) 1 1/2 cups water... cooked for a hour on high.
Then we added 5 cups of these pretty little assortedbaby potatoes & some fresh/frozen rosemary (Mmmmm smells like summer).
abernet sauvignon - because as I told my young assistant - wine makes almost everything taste better. We let that cook on low for a few more hours... =D
We went off to meet up with mom, dad and the little brother - to return her and do some thrift shopping!!! They got all the good finds... and yes another Barbie (with blond & pink hair) I think she is addicted - but it makes me happy to see a 10 yr old acting like a 10 year old - yup, enjoy being a kid!
Back to my Home Sweet Home and OMG - pretty sure this is the BEST beef stew ever! YUM! =D
.... this girl ready for bed - NOT ready for Monday =/
