weekend wrap up

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

We had a fun filled weekend! I just love Fall, especially when the weather is as nice as it has been!

Friday night we went out for a family date night to Bagger Dave's. Sadler was such a big helper feeding Jovie :)

We had a busy day planned on Saturday. Robb and I love to watch cooking competition shows and enjoy cooking together, so we thought it would be fun to do our own cooking competition Saturday night! We called it The Lubbers Hungry Games!
We got our groceries Saturday morning for our recipes. We both ended up choosing Tex-Mex recipes from the Pioneer Woman cookbook!

In the afternoon I went to my mother in laws house to have a ladies craft day! 
We all painted old windows. 
Here's my work in progress for Jovie's room. I'll share the final product when I eventually finish it!

When I got home Robb had the kitchen all prepped for our cook-off!

"May the odds be ever in your flavor"

I made a chicken tortilla soup

and Robb made the winning dish, judged by my sister and the kids, White Chicken Enchilladas! 
They were delicious!

After dinner we got the kids dressed up in their Halloween costumes to visit the Outdoor Discovery Center for their treats and trails event. 

The boys dressed up as the Kratt Brothers from the show "Wild Kratts" I made their costumes and was pretty impressed with how they turned out!
The boys were thrilled!
 The Kratt Brothers and their little creature power owl!

 It was a perfect night!  They all had so much fun!

What were the rules for your cook off? I'd love to do this at our family get together!

Our only guidelines were to use a recipe from the pioneer woman, and to be done in an hour! But I supposed you could set a budget or do whatever you want! Have fun!
