Dinner on the 5th!

While the family is here, helping to work on the basement, we've been having some great dinners!! Tonight we grilled porkchops and had spinach salad. We also made a fruit pizza for dessert. I feel like I've gained 10 pounds since they have been here and the basement is nearly done.
 Here is the table with the spinach salads







Here is the fruit pizza....we used a sugar cookie mix and pressed into bottom of pizza pan. Mixed softened cream cheese with Cool whip and a bit of sugar and vanilla flavoring. Then added the fruit, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. Then to finish it off, we melted/heated some chocolate frosting and drizzled it over the fruit!! YUM!

Everyone at the table, except me! This was our goodbye dinner for Justyn. He came home this weekend to spend some time with Jordan. We have missed him a bunch since he's moved to Kentucky to work at Coolmore Farms in Lexington. 

Part of the reason that I say we've gained ten pounds is because we have dessert every night and Jordan got this for Justyn when he came home:

It's an ice cream cake and it was yummy!! So we are all going to have to run and exercise like crazy for the rest of the week!! Well that's part of the reason for the finishing of the basement......the big room is an exercise room!! And hopefully we will use it to work off some of this food we are eating now!! It's a good theory anyhow!! So.......that's what I will work on tomorrow........
