Appetizers and Alcohol

Saturday morning I met up with my friend for coffee. We spent a few hours catching up and walking around Old Town. We even ran into my parents while we were there.

Saturday afternoon was spent prepping for our family dinner. We meet up with our parents once a month and we rotate houses {in case I haven't mentioned that before}. This month it was our turn to host. The theme was appetizers and alcohol. We had SO much food! More than ever before, I'm sure. I made antipasto skewers. I did not eat these because I am not a fan of olives. But I did snack on some of the ingredients while making them. 

My mother-in-law made taco cups with all the fixings.

I also made turkey meatballs with grape jelly and barbecue sauce. Did I say I made them? I meant the crock pot made them.

My mother-in-law also made a salad.

She makes the poppy seed dressing from scratch and it's delicious!

My brother-in-law's girlfriend made stuffed mushrooms. I'm pretty sure my husband requested these.

My dad made mini taquitos.

My husband made pulled pork sliders on Hawaiian rolls. I also made {not pictured} bacon and cheese covered tater tots. I was planning on making skewers out of them but I ran out of time.

He also made watermelon jello shots. These were non-alcoholic for our niece.

And these were the ones with vodka. They became stronger as the night went on.

This was the first time our families met Jaxon. I think he made a good first impression. Vader was the wild child, like always.

We all sipped on drinks through out the night and my husband, my brother-in-law and I ended the get together with shots of goldschlager.

We all went to sleep that night with full bellies and happy hearts.
