Fajitas, Family and Friends

Last night I went out to my cousin's house is Fairview to have dinner with some friends and family.  The menu was potluck with Jess and Keith doing the main course.  For appetizers we had pizza puffs, sausage dip (thank you Maggie!) and guacamole (a Michael Jones specialty) and for dessert we had homemade Popsicles courtesy of Jennifer and Braden Fleischer (adults received avocado Popsicles -YUM - and the kiddos got fruity Popsicles which they loved). 

There is nothing better than family who are dear friends and friends who are as dear as family. 

Richard and Elijah brought Emory all the stuffed animals from their rooms.  As sweet as the gesture is, Jess has to keep the hoards of toys from engulfing little Emory!

Amber and Jennifer get to spend some quality time with Emory.

All the fixin's

Michael starts working on his world famous guacamole.
The secret is in the squeeze! 
Michael adds the lime juice with gusto!
  While the food is being prepared everyone gets to visit with each other.
Richard loves himself some Allen 
As much as we all love to hold the baby, his favorite spot is in his momma's arms!
 Everyone is a sucker for Elijah and story time.

Then we ATE!!!  Jess made some amazing fajitas.  She marinaded the chicken and beef in green onions, cilantro, oil, water, soy sauce, coriander, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, garlic, pepper sauce, jalapenos and lime.  She put all of this in a blender then poured it over the meat and allowed it to marinade.  She marinaded the shrimp in a store-bought southwest lime marinade to which she added lemon juice and pepper.

 Keith works on the vegetables and tortillas on the grill.

The meat is ready!
The toppings are on the table....

Supper Time!!!

There is no better way to spend a Saturday night than with great friends and family...especially with the newest generation there to entertain!
Pin It!
