The Pot of NO Return...

Happy Weekend! I hope everyone had a great week and is enjoying the weekend. I have been a bit un-creative lately which explains that lack of blogging. I think I have been suffering from a mild case of "blogger's block."

This girl understands how tough it is to blog... j/k

Last weekend my sister traveled from Franklin to visit with me. We had a wonderful time and her new roommate for the Fall (both will be attending UK, GO BIG BLUE) also came for a visit. I was a good chaperon and their visit really made me feel "OLD." I was so tired when they left that I just sat there exhausted. On Saturday night the BF played Chef/Grill Extraordinaire and grilled hamburgers and chicken. Thinking that macaroni would be an easy/delicious side item I thought that I handle the preparation. I was in charge of stirring the macaroni on the stove and I apparently wasn't paying attention and the results were almost comical. 

The macaroni noodles are literally burned into the bottom of the pan.

Terrible, I almost felt bad for the pot...

The Pot of NO Return...

As bad as the pan turned out, the weekend was that great. We had a wonderful time and I promise that my guests were well fed. I even managed to wrangle everyone to take a few pictures.

I am hoping that my lack of macaroni skills didn't scare off and future visits from Mallory and Jenna. I am so glad that they were able to spend some time in Lexington before they start school in August, and maybe next time I won't burn any of my kitchen equipment. I guess I won't be making any guest appearances on the Food Network any time soon. Oh Well I guess I can always dream:)

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!

Happy Sunday!
LOVE, MKH

Don't feel too bad, I burnt popcorn and my mom's favorite stock pot one time trying to make old fashioned popcorn on the stove.
