On Sunday after Phil picked me up from the airport, we went on a picnic lunch in Memorial Hermann Park (my favorite park in Houston). It was so beautiful. In the afternoon, we tried to watch the Steelers game but were having some trouble. Because Pittsburgh is so far away from Houston, we don’t get it on the local stations too much. In order to see some of the game, we watched all of the red zones plays on the NFL channel; thank goodness for that channel! All in all, it was a fabulous weekend! Have a great week Hawley Blog Readers!

Shortbread “Hearts” and Pecan Shortbread (page 177 and 181) as pumpkins, leaves, and acorns.
With all of these dishes filling up my refrigerator, let’s hope that there is enough food to make it through the weekend!

Last weekend was super nice. It rained on Friday but after the rain we had a “cold” front come through Houston. The temperatures were low enough that Phil and I could turn the air conditioning off for the first time since March! It was nice to finally open the windows and have fresh air blowing through the house. It was such a treat even if it was only for a couple days. Saturday was Phil’s first game coaching for our Sunday School football team and it was the perfect football weather. We won both games! Go Saved2Serve!!!
Guacamole (page 50)
I have found that after refrigerating left-over guacamole it turns brown and isn’t very pretty. To store your left-overs (should you have any) cover the guacamole with saran wrap, pressing the plastic down so that it is actually touching the guacamole.
The dinner party was really fun! Since the club is made up of women from my Sunday school class and a Sunday School class from a different church, it was awesome to finally meet the other women that I have been blogging with. I had a blast discussing the recipes and the unique twists others suggested. I’m looking forward to the next potluck for sure!
