So much for the meal plan

Yesterday was a big day. My youngest graduated from high school (especially momentous because he wasn't expected to live to manage this accomplishment) and we threw a party. It was just family, but ended up being 20 mouths to feed. We decided on a cookout with kabobs and lots of sides - salads and chips and such - and a cookie cake for dessert. I bought a generous amount of meat, figuring we could eat leftovers this weekend as we recuperated from the excitement.

Yeah, well, that was a nice thought.

Those people ate every single morsel of meat and cleaned us out of the sides, too. All that's left is a slab of cookie cake and some chips. Guess it's a PB&J weekend for us - but a happy one still.
