Cooking and family visiting fun ☺

Welcome back, on Friday I decided to whip up a batch of M&M cookies/biscuits as we were going to have visitors for lunch ☺☺

I put in a little too much M&M's so the next batch will do half 

The recipe made roughly 40 cookies and if I made them a bit smaller would be HEAPS....going to make some more too because the van group we belong to, there is one guy who LOVES these so going to knock up some more to take on our little trip next week ☺☺

I also made this garlic and rosemary cob style loaf to have with the BBQ we were going to be having with those visitors ☺☺
I also boiled up some spuds to bake on Saturday as they crisp up real well just with some olive oil spray, quite healthy, these are also some low Gi spuds ☺

And had these wings marinating for a few days in my own concoction of mix to be also cooked in the oven, to have along side some BBQ steak and salad ☺☺

Some more birds have been drinking from my water dish, but not very colourful....

Where have all the fun bright coloured birds gone? Hope they appear here soon ☺

And LOOK yes my girl came to visit for the lunch on Saturday and look how tiny she looks next to my big sunflower ☺

She is about the same height as the smaller one lol

There is grand boy number 2 

And my girl's guy who is quite tall himself but dwarfed by this beauty lol 

A lovely group shot of the awesome foursome who traveled 160 klm's to spend the arvo with us ☺☺
A bit of attacking/friction went on with number 1 grand boy (who did not want to be photographed with the sunflower lol) and number 2

Hence why in this pic number 2 does not look happy lol We love all of these guys ♥

And me with them and they look happier separated by Granny and their mum lol 

Good to get a couple of photo's....and grand boy 1 is so tall now!

And could not forget the man himself who was barbecuing the onion/snag/steaks....which was all fabulous and everyone ate heaps, did not get any photo's of the cooked up food as we were having too much fun with the family ☺
It has been a great weekend here, how is it at our place?
See you all again soon xoxo
