It feels a little strange in our house tonight. Our family left this morning, and it's definitely quiet around here. We had such a good time, but boy did we eat. That is one thing us Stepps do well!
Friday I slaved in the kitchen. No, that's a lie. I did cook a big meal, but it was all super easy and I think it went over well.
The pork tenderloin was tender and the white cheddar penne is a new favorite for me. Yum!
The blackberry buttermilk cake was good too. It was even better for breakfast the next day.
On Saturday, Todd and his dad hung the ferns that I have been wanting for so long. I love them!
Before heading to Loveless Cafe for dinner, we hit the mall where Todd's parents bought us the best anniversary gift ever. I still can't believe they bought it. I guess my new passion for cooking has been noticeable, because they bought us a new Kitchenaid mixer. I can't stop staring at it!
The next day we hit the farmer's market in Nashville to get fresh veggies for the kabobs we were going to grill.
We made quite the dinner! The kabobs were amazing.
We had such a great weekend and feel unbelievably blessed. Tim and Tracy are so giving and selfless. Todd's mom and grandma cooked and cleaned all weekend, while Todd's dad finished projects around the house. How did we get so lucky? I couldn't ask for better in-laws or a better weekend.
