Dinner at Plain Chicken's...

This weekend brought a special treat — we had the privilege to eat at Plain Chicken's house. But, there was nothing plain about Stephanie's cooking, especially the chicken!

She had my kinda menu prepared for us — but don't worry, I plan to share all the delicious recipes with y'all so you can make them for your family this week.

For appetizers, she made her famous Cream Cheese Sausage Balls. Let's just say I ate my fair share of these babies. They were absolutely DE-LICIOUS! If you've ever had your hands on sausage balls, you'll probably remember them being a little dry when you eat them. Not these... I'm talking juicy, and flavorful. We will be making these here at the Sowell house really soon!


The main course was cooking while we talked and caught up with the latest gossip. And with every passing minute, my stomach started growling more and more. The guys were outside tending to the grill while I sat and watched Stephanie work her magic in the kitchen.


We had grilled chicken smothered in bacon and cheese. But the marinade she used was divine. The chicken was cooked perfectly, and the taste — well, it left your mouth watering for another bite. I'm sorry I can't share the recipe with you just yet, but we were her guinea pigs for this recipe. And since it was such a hit, you'll be seeing it on her blog in a few weeks. Trust me, you will not want to miss it!


One of the sides were her amazing Crack Potatoes. I've had this recipe pinned on Pinterest for quite a while but had yet to make them. We LOVED them. And, she sent the leftovers home with us... so we had them as a meal in itself on Sunday. I'll definitely be adding this recipe to our side dishes.


Homemade Rolls — need I say more? I'm a bread fanatic, but homemade bread and cornbread tie for #1 in my book. And she makes some pretty fantastic homemade bread. We may or may not have come home with a loaf, and we may or may not have already eaten half of it.


Of course she had dessert waiting on us after dinner. (Like we needed it or had any room for it after that amazing meal.) I'd heard about this Butterfinger Cake, and how moist and delicious it was, but I finally got to try it. The cake did not disappoint. It was perfect, and we all know how much I love Butterfingers!


If you read Stephanie's blog on Mondays, you'll probably already know what I'm about to say. We got to meet the famous Jack, Sherbert and Fluffy. Jack was so loving and the life of the party, Fluffy was a sleeper, and Sherbert — the curious little one came out to see who was invading their house. And they are just as cute in person as they are on her blog.

Thanks again Stephanie and Tadd for inviting us over to enjoy dinner with y'all. You know it's a great meal when you're still talking about it the next day.
