What’d You Do This Weekend? #20

Welcome to the new week. If you are a regular here thanks for coming back and if this is your first time, welcome! I hope you enjoy the party.

Big Sister was in town to watch the grand girls and we ate and cooked and ate some more.  We are finishing up the weekend working on a burger extravaganza that will be coming soon!  I had everyone in my family write out their favorite burger and we are making them all.  Fun times in the kitchen and on the grill.

To start our food fiesta we went a little “light” with this Taco Salad with Jicama Pico.

      It was far out there for me to use the bacon. My crowd made me do it. It was fun though!

    Sorry, I didn’t do a craft or cook, but I went fishing and caught a 25 inch redfish. I think that will be our dinner tomorrow night “Redfish on the half shell!” So good:)

      That sounds like a fun time. Come back and tell me how you cooked that fish. I am sure lots of folks will want to know.
