Family Dinner

Sometimes it's just so nice to have someone cook a meal for you! Last weekend, me, my dad, my brother, and my SIL got together for a family dinner - something we hadn't done in a while because of everyone's hectic schedules.

Dad provided the steaks, and my brother, Jem, marinated them in Worcestershire Sauce, balsamic vinegar, and some steak spice. Then he threw them on the BBQ.We had some company, the neighbour's toy chihuahua, Lilly. She is half the size of Juno and very cuddly!
As the steaks cooked, my SIL made stuffed potato skins, using bacon bits, green onion, tomatoes, and cheese.We also had a salad with dinner - and it was one excellent meal! Everything was wonderful!

And for dessert, there was a leftover blueberry dessert made by Shan's aunt - light and a perfect ending to a great meal!

Aww, look at Lilly in her cute pink sweater! That is a wonderful meal, and even better that you didn't have to lift a finger to make it! Once in a while, it is nice to sit back and let someone else cook for you.

I agree with Cathy...it's almost 7 AM here and I want those potato skins. Love grilled food too. Especially with a nice char on it. Great looking meal and know it was a good time.

Steak is God's proof against vegetarianism :)

I made twice baked potatoes a few weeks back and a question occurred to me, what's the difference between twice baked potatoes and stuffed potato skins?

I think I came up with an answer, but not sure it's definitive. Seems like whether or not you use the scooped out pulp in making the stuffing mixture.
