The Cozy Coupe Makes Its Outdoor Debut!

(And, Other News From the Weekend!)

On Friday, Josh FINALLY got to hold Baby Liam!!!  Josh got a nasty cold, and didn't want to risk getting Liam sick any of the times we have seen him.  Jackson, as always, was THRILLED for an evening of Baby Brother time :)  Brandi cooked us an AMAZING dinner of Korean BBQ Lettuce Wraps!  We were all quite impressed, and well fed! 
 Such a snuggle bug :)
On Saturday, we just hung out at home.  In the evening I made the dough for home-made English muffins (to be baked on Sunday) and got the St. Patrick's Day Oreo Truffles ready to go for Sunday.

On Sunday, I worked hard on each component of homemade Eggs Benedict (recipe coming later).  We finally ate "brunch" at 2:00 (new time)!  Yikes!  Josh jumped in and did all the whisking work for the hollandaise sauce, and it was THE best hollandaise I have ever had.  Our late brunch was delicious, it was just a lot of components to coordinate...

After cleaning up brunch, I got to work on the dessert for that evening: St. Patrick's Day Oreo Truffles (or Shamrocks, as Josh labeled them).  I will post the recipe for this later too.  But, here is my dipping and decorating station ready to go.  I also have a picture of the shamrock sprinkles I made from scratch :)  
These were a yummy complement to the Slow Cooker French Dip sandwiches Joe and Susie brought over--it was a delicious evening!  While the guys were working on dinner, Susie and I took Rachel and Jackson outside to play.  This was the outdoors debut for the Cozy Coupe, believe it or not!  I bought this a LONG time ago, and Jackson has been having lots of fun riding it around the family room.  He also uses it as a golf cart for his golf clubs :)  Susie and I were so proud of the kids because they took such good turns.  It was a great way to work up an appetite for dinner!
