Special Time with Friends...


On Saturday my girlfriend and her hubby came to the cottage and stayed overnight for the weekend. She and I have "hung" out and shared so much together since we were 15. We went to the same school, double dated....switched dates...*lol*...she and her hubby are godparents to Geoff, my eldest son and I am the godmother of her oldest daughter. We stood up for each other when we were married.



Marc and I served up our Breakfast Link casserole for them when they first arrived for brunch in our brand new Paula Deen casserole dish...

we set the table overlooking a perfect sunny day....





After breakfast we took them for a drive around the area stopping here and there which included a couple of wonderful markets where we picked up fruits and veggies for our dinner and dessert.


As an appetizer before dinner we had a plate of prociutto, tomatoes, slices of soft mozarella cheese, and basil from the garden. Over it we sprinkled some herb infused olive oil that Marc made last weekend. It was sooo delicious.

Marc is telling me something funny about the olive oil container he's holding up I think.....
Isn't it wonderful to have such special friends....Judi xoxo

What a great meal. It is good to have long time friends. I still keep in close touch with a girl I met on the fist day of 1st grade.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed your post on canning the green beans also!
