Marinate 6-8 hours, then add jelly beans

January 25th was our 14th Wedding Anniversary. Our weekend had some really good plans and lots of fun should have been had.... but John ended up with a kidney stone so that shot everything to hell.
After 4 days of maoning and groaning and the unpleasantness that comes with kidney stones, John passed his stone Sunday morning. 
By then it was too late for anything to exciting for our weekend I decided that I'd make our anniversary dinner at home.
Our anniversary morning came and we had a full day of stuff to keep us busy. I watch my niece Sophie every day after her morning Kindergarten class so when we picked her up at 11:30 am John and I took her with us to have a nice breakfast out. Then back to our house.
I got a call from John's sister asking if Cooper could play and I didn't see why not so he came over. Cooper and Sophie play pretty good together for a while but then Cooper just wants to play with John. I sent Sophie over to play with the neighbors, and I went to the grocery store. After purchasing all the needed itrems I returned hme to make dinner.

Our beverages for rhe evening was Merlin's Treat. A mix of fruit juices and ginger ale.

For our main course we had: 

and finally... Dessert: 
with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream and fresh Raspberries

All the food was delicious. I was quite proud of myself... but later, the break out of hives reminded me that I need to look closer at the ingredients of things I eat since I am allergic to Sulfur. Thankfully two allergy pills stopped the hives before it got to bad.
