Weekend fun!

We once again packed a lot into the weekend! Friday evening we met up with our friends for a yummy dinner at the Red Rooster! We'd heard from many different sources how good it was and finally got there to give it a try! It was delicious! They have homemade rolls for their burgers/sandwiches and it was awesome! They also had about 16 different choices for pie and the one I tried was fantastic! Their sweet daughter (who seems to have grown up overnight!) was so excited to finally meet Ava!

Saturday morning we decided to give Ava a treat for breakfast in place of her oatmeal. We made her a scrambled egg and she loved it! She gobbled it up! I'm so thankful that for the time being she doesn't seem to be a picky eater! I hope that will last for a long time!

I have some events coming up where I have to take something and I've been wanting to find some new recipes for things like this, but I don't like taking something I've never made before. What if I made it and it turned out disgusting?? Can't have that. So I decided to give a couple of Pioneer Woman's recipes a try this weekend! I made her Chile con Queso and Apple Dumplings!!

They were both really good! The queso did make a lot so I used PW's tip of putting it in baggies and freezing it! I definitely did not want that entire pan of dumplings at my house so I loaded up most of the pan and took them to my mom, dad and sister. I saved us a couple for dessert last night and I thought they were actually a little better after they had set out for a bit.

After church today, we met the Beaty's at one of our mutual favorite restaurants. After that, they invited us to go swimming with them at Emily's parents' house! It was a perfect afternoon for that b/c it was SO hot! Even though it cut into Ava's nap time, we let her swim for a while b/c she loves it so much!

The afternoon did wear her out though!

And finally, be checking back soon! My one year blogoversary is very close and I have a giveaway lined up for you guys and I'm very excited about it! Hope you all had a great weekend as well!
