Supper Guests

A while back, The Family decided that for PawPaw and MawMaw's anniversary, instead of a bunch of unneeded gifts, we would take turns hosting them for a meal. Each family was assigned a week on the calendar. It was such a hit with everyone, that we are on Round 2.

This time, we had homemade pasta and meatballs, salad, corn and sourdough bread, and for dessert, homemade chocolate pudding layered with peanut butter pie crumbs and Cool Whip, in individual dessert dishes. (I am a sucker for individual desserts. They are so cute.) I enjoyed the chance to use nicer table service; for instance, I put the salad dressing in a fancy-schmancy glass pitcher. And see, I even used vintage CLOTH napkins! I used to use cloth napkins all the time when we were first married. Life with kids changes more than a few things.
Our children love their great grandparents, can you tell?! Almost every time I make bread or muffins, Owen says we need to take some to MawMaw. By the way, this was the last time Helen could wear that cute little shirt. I could barely get the button over her tummy closed!

Helen looks so cute at the table with her hands folded :). Great idea to get a picture with them. . . I was just glad to have food cooked and on the table after I misread the recipe and didn't notice it until 30min before they were supposed to come :). Jan

It was good to talk to you on the phone that day you were planning this special supper. I LOVE the idea!

I loved reading about all the little details of your meal and what a special picture with the "Greats".

What a special evening with Paw-Paw and Maw-Maw! This is an unusual blessing. Memories for everyone, even the children.
