Burgers with the family

What a great evening.  The kids came over for one last dinner together before Geneva and Jesse head to school in Natchitoches, LA.  It's only about 4 hours away but the drive is boring and makes it seem alot longer.  We have 3 kids, Eric, Geneva and James.  And all three have mates, Katie, Jesse and Crystal.  Eric and Katie live in Pennsylvania so obviously they didn't drop over for dinner but the other four were here.

We kept it simple and make burgers on the grill.  I'll admit it's not the best picture but there seemed to be a million things going on at once.  How does that happen?  It did eventually turn into a very relaxed evening.  We ate our burgers and laughed alot.  Ended up playing a 'Apples to Apples' and some game on Wii.

The kids munched all night on a no bake cookie I got from my mother's recipe box.  There are lots of these out there and I'll post it sometime but it's just cocoa, sugar, milk, butter, peanut butter and oatmeal.  The kids love them but they are kinda rich for me.

Oh and yes, we did finally go to the store and stock the pantry.  Charlie was afraid of 'how many things can you do with an egg', so he stopped on the way home and bought a variety of things so I can continue to make up stuff as I go.

We have stuck to the 'Eat in Month' Challenge.  How are you doing?

Live, Laugh, Love,

Karen and Charlie
