Here's what was on the menu: steaks from The Meat House. UNBELIEVABLE! Bill's brother Chris hauled home platters-full of cowboy steaks (I'd never heard of them) and T-bone (I have heard of those!). Added to the carnivorous portion of the meal was grilled chicken, sided by baked beans, shrimp, steamed clams, corn-on-the-cob, garlic bread and knots with marinara, grilled asparagus -- it was rediculously pentiful! I had left-over batter from a cake I'd made for my friend Liz, and baked a little 8x8 pan of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, just in case anyone needed to be pushed over the edge after such a sumptuous meal!
The rest of the weekend included hanging around the house, checking on the chickens who are no longer chicks and (in my opinion) no longer cute! (I'm a little more citified, what can I say?). Henry had close encounters with dirt piles, necessitating frequent baths to remove pounds of sand from his hair. We took a ride to Saratoga Apple for the first macs of the season. The weekend was capped with a big bonfire and s'mores.
