I've been a huge slacker, and my Mom and sister's birthdays kind of snuck up on me this year.
We haven't had a proper celebration for them yet (coming this weekend), but we did have a little dinner in Mom's honor at our house the other night. Low key, yummy menu, good porch sitting, and cute baby gazing. All the good stuff.
One of my favorite appetizers/party foods: Bacon wrapped cream cheese jalapenos.
(don't know where my pepperplate recipe for this came from? Here's one, very basic. I add some garlic powder, onion powder, a pinch of old bay, sometimes a bit of shredded cheese, have fun with it!)

Grilled peaches. Mmmm.
Big girl feeding herself the bottle.
And Coach falling down on the job : )
All lunch/dinners this week have pretty much been a spinoff from this meal. Easy ingredients for getting in multiple uses, using leftover shredded chicken, tzatziki, salad stuff, pitas, etc.
(Yes, I know. All we eat these days is chicken!! Maybe I'll get crazy and do something new next week)
