R: ever seen a hen on a can? here you go. Beer Can Chicken. Another night of grilling! yay!

L: the happy husband with the delicious chicken.
R: our beer themed dinner a week ago: beer can chicken, beer battered veggies, beer bread, and beer! 🙂

L & R: some of Gabriel’s new shoes. Yay for Pediped sandals! He has finally outgrown the 0-6 month size. 😉

L & R: the newest arrow in our quiver. I finally got the name tag done, and I’m pleased with the result.

L: eating his first “table food” breakfast — a Danish abelskiver with banana!
R: “Got Milk?”

L: the birthday dinner I had yesterday for my mama.
R: me, serving up the main dish: chicken breasts stuffed with jack cheese, sage, and green onions, and wrapped in layers of phyllo dough.

L: my plate. Looks pretty to me! With the chicken in phyllo, we had roasted asparagus, roasted sweet potatoes with a brown sugar maple glaze, and popovers. For the appetizers we had butternut bisque and salad with a homemade parmesan garlic vinaigrette.
R: Grandpapa with Noah.

L: Grandmama with Hannah, and dessert — German chocolate cake!
R: the birthday crown I made last week for my Gabriel.

  3. All that food looks so yummy. I’ve heard of the  beer can chicken but never tried it! 😉

    I want the recipe for the phyllo wrapped chicken; mmm!! good.

    Gabriel is getting big and so are the twins. All 3 of them are so precious; what a blessing! The arrow tag you crossstiched is beautiful and a treasure forever. I love how you are symbolizing the arrows that God has given you and Steven. That’s something that really touches me…something I hope to do someday.
