Weekend Recap

This weekend we hosted two get togethers at the house. Saturday we had some friends over to watch the football game (the outcome of which we will not discuss). Sunday we had John's family (12 people!) over for his brother & sister in law's birthday party. In both cases, the majority of the people coming had not seen the house a) at all or b) since we moved in. As you can imagine, we wanted to get a bunch done!

Saturday:
I cooked most of the day for the two gatherings, but John hung some artwork around the house. He also fixed the curtain rod over our bed and rehung those curtains. Of course we cleaned a bunch.

The menu-
Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip w/tortilla chips (via Meredith)

Lasagna (two- I exploded my pyrex 9x13 on Saturday while cooking 10 things at once and the second lasagna was going into that, so I had to improvise. The second lasagna was round- cake pan!)
Bread
Salad
Pumpkin pie bars

Sunday:
I cooked all day again. John went shopping and the organized the guest room.

The menu-
Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip w/tortilla chips (via Meredith)
Veggie Pizza Squares

Salad
Oven fried chicken
Homemade biscuits
Green beans w/bacon bits
Mashed Potatoes
Gravy

Pumpkin pie bars
Chocolate chip cookies
Birthday cake- Boston cream pie cake
Ice cream

The State of the House:
Last week I hung some bamboo shades in the office and the kitchen. I love them! The office will eventually get some sheers around the window in addition to the shades. Also, John hung the ceiling fans in the bedroom and guest room. The guest room one is mysteriously not working and we didn't have time to tinker with it anymore.

I'm loving how the house is coming along!

How did the dip turn out? I can't wait to try it again sometime without the breadcrumbs...
