A Pinterest Holiday Party


A Pinterest Holiday Party
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for December 11, 2016


We have had albino squirrels following us around since our boys were born.  When the boys had something scary going on with their medical situation, it would always seem like one would pop up which made us feel like they were our own personal guardian angels.  We hadn't seen any in the past year or two, so we were quite happy when this guy showed up in our back yard this week.


On Friday night, it was snowing so we thought it would be fun to have our friends the Zitzewitzes and the Browns over for a hot tub dinner party.  We love taking baths with these people.


We put Troy to work skewering meat right when he arrived.  


We're pretty intimidated when cooking for Troy and Karl because both of these guys are really good chefs.  Miss Sheri asked me to pick out some ideas for her to try so we could attempt to keep up with what they have cooked for us in the past.  So we went to Pinterest and searched for Holiday Supper Ideas.


We were pretty darned pleased with how everything turned out.  Each of the recipes was great so I thought I'd share them with you all in case you'd be interested in trying something new and fun.  Here is what we had:

Grilled Asian Garlic Steak Skewers
 
Salad Cranberry Walnut Avocado Salad
 

After dinner it was time to strip down to our swimsuits and get in the hot tub.  A good time was had by all.


It snowed for the rest of the weekend which made Miss Sheri excited.  She just loves blowing snow!
