This weekend we had some friends over for Game Night! We've been talking about doing it for ages and we finally did it.
Worker Bee and I cooked dinner, another Teacher Bee friend brought drinks, and yet another Teacher Bee friend brought dessert.
I found tons of great ideas on Pinterest....
But did I do any of them? Of course not!!! Instead we just had some good food and some good fun!
We made from my favorite slow cooker cookbook of all time this delicious Smoky Beef Chili with the most amazing (and simple) corn salsa as a garnish. (Oh yes, I'm afraid I'm going to share a recipe....again.....please don't groan. But it's just for the corn salsa - I think it would be fabulously delicious on any homemade chili.)
2 cups fresh or frozen (I used frozen white corn) corn kernels
2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
4 green onions, including green tops, thinly sliced
1/3 - 1/2 lime vinaigrette
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbl white wine vinegar
1 tsp grated lime zest
2 Tbl fresh lime juice
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
Toss well and indulge!
We built a nice cozy fire in our wood stove (it got below freezing that night)
pulled out all the games,
and enjoyed our relaxing evening with friends!
We played Cranium, Catch Phrase, and the Game of Things. I only won when I partnered with Worker Bee on Cranium. Holy guacamole that boy is good! That must be why he keeps passing that Jeopardy online test.
Can't wait to do it again!
Do you wanna' come the next time?
What games do you enjoy? I'd love to know!
Thanks for buzzing in! So nice to see you!
