Mindy here. Well, things are chugging along at the big house. Demo efforts were reignited when we learned that the rather odd texture on the walls--it's very rough and downright sharp in many places--cannot be matched or mudded over. So all of the remaining sheetrock has to be removed..
The electrician has been working on new wiring.
Throw is the summer heat and, by the end of the day, we are all tuckered out. Sometimes, the last thing I want to think about is dinner. It's those times when deciding what to fix is the biggest challenge of all. So rather than settle on one big item, I sometimes opt for a variety of little things. After all, part of what makes appetizers so wonderful is that you can try a little bit of this, a dab of that...
This beautiful hodge-podge was our dinner the other night. I had a few potatoes left over that I needed to use, so I baked them for potato skins, then filled them with cheese and bacon.
These little babies are called Armadillo Eggs.
Jalapeno stuffed with barbecued chicken and wrapped in bacon. We picked them up at our local supermarket and boy were they yummy.
We also found these Yum Yum Stix on a recent trip and decided to give them a try, too.
They were amazing, y'all. I will definitely be buying these again.
Throw in some sweet summer cantaloupe...
And let's eat.
My taste buds were happy, my tummy was happy...
But you know what made me happiest of all?
This little guy came to visit his grammy.
And I love, love, LOVE that.
Now it's your turn. Are you a fan of appetizers? Do you ever do appetizers for dinner? If so, what are some of your faves?
