Weekend Bites

I had a GREAT time with my sister this weekend. We talked about how we could't believe she was having a baby. And baby names. And how they found out. And how to decorate the baby's room. Basically just all things baby! Oh, and did I mention I am the Godmother? :)


We also had some wonderful food. As soon as I got there I made PW's Chile Con Queso Dip, which was great. My sister's husband made us dinner:

Country Ribs, Salad and Home-Made Potato Salad. I will be getting you the recipe for the potato salad...it is the best!


A little later on, Mr. Beachy (who is at "The Draft") sends me this picture of his dinner:

It's the biggest taco I've ever seen. Look at his hand next to it!


Later in the night, we were a little snacky so my sister's husband made Crab Rangoons!

These are fantastic. To make these, combine cream cheese, just a little real or fake crabmeat, a a sprinkle of sugar and a small splash of vanilla in a bowl and soften in the microwave a few seconds. Less than ten seconds. You don't want it runny, just softened. Stir it up. Layout won ton wrappers and add a spoonful of the mixture to the center. Fold over and press closed. Fry them up in a pan of oil and serve with sweet 'n sour sauce.

Oh that's so exciting. I recently became a niece and when my sister was pregnant it was such an exciting time. It's so fun to come up with baby names and day dream a little. Enjoy these times with your sister... pretty soon she will be consumed with a little one :)
