Dinner with the lovely Mother in Law
My mother in law has, unfortunately, had to get used to living on her own since her lovely husband, Jack, died a couple of years ago.
She doesn’t often say anything but I know she can get lonely sometimes so we like to go and spend time with her and also invite her here for lunch or a BBQ or just a coffee.
Last week we invited her round for dinner and a family games night. We had Beef Bourguignon with Mashed potato, green beans, carrots and broccoli. It was absolutely delicious.
For dessert, we had Manchester Tart. It could have done with being made the previous day so it had more time to set but it was still gorgeous! I hate to think how many Slimming World syns I had that night!
Kaycee set the table; she likes making her own place cards 🙂
The girls love it when Nanny comes for dinner. We all had a really lovely night.
After dinner, we played gin rummy. I can’t remember who won but it was probably Ant because he usually wins everything!
We had Grandad round for a BBQ the next day and he comes to dinner at our house every other week. It’s important to us that the girls get to spend as much time with their lovely grandparents as possible so we’re planning making family dinner and game night a regular thing 🙂
