Saturday morning, we had Jake and Izzy since Kristin and George both had to work. Pappy cooked everyone "dippy" eggs and bacon for breakfast. Then we went outside to enjoy the beautiful day, and Rod and I sat and laughed at the kids playing their special games. He grilled hot dogs for lunch, and the kids presented me with some buttercups they found in the yard. Izzy's had nice long stems, while Jake's had no stems at all. It was a wonderful morning.
Sunday, we invited Mary and her family for dinner. With Mary's working, Krissy's band and Bubby's therapy, we don't see very much of them and we had a wonderful evening. Rod and I decided to do a boneless pork loin roast on the rotisserie and we basted it with Pam's homemade pear butter. It created a nice, sweet crust while the meat inside was moist and full of flavor. The side dishes were quick and easy, green beans with bacon, baked beans, and cheese topped pierogis. We discussed our sad, sloppy Steelers and watched the highlights from some other games. After they left, Rod and I ended our evening by watching Goldeneye with Pierce Brosnan (I love me some Pierce Brosnan).
All in all, it was a great weekend with beautiful weather, family, good food and old friends.
