Welcome to my Step-Daughter's house!
We were invited there this past weekend for dinner.
I am thoroughly impressed with what she pulled off! The house is cozy and charming and has a sort of beachy feel to it!
I'm also impressed with what great hosts they've become, especially considering they are still a fairly young couple. It took me quite a few years to get my mojo on
and pull off entertaining with ease & confidence.
Ahhhh, but the son-in-law is quite saucy! They took home the trophy (my vintage bowling pin) after winning our family bowling tournament, held over the Christmas holidays! He made sure it was prominently displayed for our visit. Go ahead, rub it in ... but enjoy it while it's yours! Hubs and I plan on being a force to be reckoned with next time around!
I made dessert. Chocolate cupcakes (a light version with applesauce) ...
And rice pudding with raisins!
Served with whipped cream (made with the assistance of my KitchenAid of course)!
