    Default Nice cookout

    Just to wrap another thread, we had a nice cookout here today!

    I'm south enough we've even used the AC once or twice (mostly to test it
    out).

    Had 19 people (some were kids from 6-17) munching down on various potluck
    sorts of provender. Simple stuff from ruby grapefruit peeled and ready to
    be eaten or dipped in a sugar bowl and eaten, to hot dogs and homemade
    rotisserie chicken. Over a few beers and much provender we plotted the
    basics of the block party for this year. Looking at 18 June so far? It's a
    locals only thing but it's fun to chat about if any others plot the same
    sort of mischief!

    Oh yeah. Rub it in. It was finally warm enough here to open the windows.
    That is especially handy today with my previously posted comments about
    burning very hot red pepper jelly on the glass stove top and having to
    air the place out because I could not breath that smoke.

    My wife bought salmon which she was planning to grill on the BBQ
    tonight, but she forgot that she had a reunion dinner to go to. I
    decided to heat up one of the met pies from her church women's group.
    Those things are incredible.

    Snicker, relax you time will come. I'll be glory-city in 100F before long.

    Yummie! I used the oven for the first time in ages today. I pulled one of
    the rye loaves out of the breadmaker and baked it there so I could make a
    third loaf.

    Alicalee's husband got reduced to half time (at least he wasnt laid off!).
    Meantime her job increased her to full time but she doesnt make much over
    minimum wage and with 5 kids, times are tight there. Sent them a loaf and
    the leftovers others didnt take home from our picnic.
