Thankfully, we have made some great friends here... they happen to like my cooking and don't care what the house looks like! :o) I've even gotten to the point that if there are *gasp* dishes in the sink when they come over, I don't go into a complete panic.
Anyway, we're having them over for dinner tonight (and at least one round of Train... yeah, we gave it a nickname -- "Ticket to Ride" is just too long, LOL!), so I thought I'd share our menu.
- BBQ Pork Sandwiches (the recipe calls for beef, but we use pork)
- Some sort of chili-cream cheese dip and chips*
- German Apple Cake w/cream cheese frosting (my ma's recipe)
- French Silk Chocolate Pie*
We were also going to have potato salad or veggie sticks on the side, but the other couple that was coming just called to say they can't make it tonight. Oh, well... more goodies for us! ;o)
It's nothing special or spectacular, but everything I listed is g-o-o-d! And the whole point is the fellowship with good friends who share our faith and are like family, right?
Anyone else have any favorite go-to meals when expecting company? I'm always on the look-out for tried and true recipes to add to my collection! :o)
