Tex here. This past weekend was an extra special one for me. For starters, I actually relaxed. I also had the opportunity to spend some time in the kitchen, doing one of my favorite things. Cooking. But not just cooking, this was one of those labor of love events because we were celebrating, well, love.
You may or may not remember me telling you how our middle daughter sprang the news on us just before Easter weekend that she was getting married--the next day. Well, fast forward six months. The happy couple has bought a house and were finally ready to celebrate their new life with family and friends.
As we all know here at the cafe, a celebration just isn't a celebration without food. So I pitched in by making their wedding cake,
Cupcakes for all of the guests,
and, since the groom was rustlin' up a mess of ribs and smoked brisket, a pot of cowboy beans (recipe here)
and some macaroni salad (recipe here).
Everything looked so pretty.
Best of all, perhaps, was getting to spend some time with my girls.
Now that they're all married, the times we're all together are few and far between, so when we are, it's definitely a treat. One that always warms this mama's heart.
Now it's your turn. Do your celebrations revolve around food? If so, what's you're favorite?
