No, I'm not participating in any A-Z challenge like a few of the blogs are. The F words just seem to fit perfect for tonight! It's been a week (almost) since Easter but I wanted to show some flowers that I put together for last Sunday. It's waaaaayyyy too early for flowers here but the trees are in bloom and I took a few branches of blossoms and put them in a vase and voila'...instant centerpiece!
Arts and crafts are not my forte...in fact I usually call my attempts "Arts and Crap"...but I think this little egg ditty turned out OK. I had to include this new bunny I found at my favorite little shop "Backdoor Primitives"..I thought he was cute too!
It was a beautiful day today..even though I spent most of it indoors at work..I kept thinking it would be the perfect night for a fire. It's been dry and no wind tonight plus the temps were nice. Jack put together a nice fire and when it burned down a bit it was time for these:
Mmmmm...these little steaks were so delish! We couldn't decide if they were that good or we were just that hungry! But I'm taking in the fact that I marinated them nicely and the wood fire added just the right amount of smoky goodness..plus they were so tender they almost melted in your mouth!
Maybe it was the Chef? Whatever...good job Jack!
Eddy just was waiting for his share!
Ok, so what it the glop next to the meat? Well, I was debating about what to make with it and Jack suggested just throwing a bunch of veggies and some mushroom soup together and it worked! It had a nice flavor from the fire too. Dessert? Well first I made some banana boats...you know what I mean right? You take bananas and slice down the middle and fill them with chocolate chips and then wrap them in foil and put them on the fire. I also filled one with peanut butter eggs left over from Easter. They sort of burned. So I did follow it up with a key lime pie I had in the freezer. All in all it was a nice Friday night fire. The food was great, the company (just Jack and I and Eddy) was greater, and the relaxing sizzle and warmth of the fire made it perfect Friday the 13th.
