Some of my girlfriends, many of whom are working moms, came over for a casual lunch the other day.  Because we needed to adhere to a lunch "hour" as opposed to the brunch "hours" like we are used to, the food needed to be something quick and filling instead of elaborate and dainty.

Our menu:
Lemony Iced Tea
Venison Chili or Sweet Potato Chili (we had a vegetarian present)
Cornbread Waffles
Bacon Wrapped Dates
Congealed Salad

Nothing warms you up and sticks to your ribs quick like chili.  However, when I planned the menu it was in the 50s on the actual day of lunch, it was in the 80s so not much warming up was needed.

One of my sweet friends is starting a cupcake business and brought over some for me to try.  Cupcake tasting is a review gig that I feel I can throw myself into wholeheatedly.  ;)  They were truly scrumptious.

It was nice to have some girl time...especially when it ends with delicious cupcakes.


  1. Wish I didn't have to work that day! You are so sweet to always consider others and you are a wonderful cook! Love you!

    1. Sorry you couldn't make it this time. Thanks for the kind words. :)

  2. Could you send your cupcake friend my way? I have to make 90 for Sunday!
