Tomorrow is my son's 6th birthday party. And for those of you who have been reading my blog for some time now, know that the food is the main attraction. I can't help it- I just love to cook.
It's an XMen party - and would you believe that I could not find one thing of Xmen anywhere? I had to use one of his video game covers in order to have an XMen cake! I saw the stuff everywhere about a month ago - but it was far too early to think about it then...and now, nothing. So, I'm just decorating everything in XMen colors and of course, the cake.
Menu du jour for tomorrow is: BBQ chicken, teriyaki chicken, tons of hot dogs and super thick burgers, turkey burgers, hot & sweet sausages, tons of peppers and onions on the grill (just spent forever cutting them!), fajita marinated steaks, sirloin wrapped in bacon, scallops wrapped in bacon (I love bacon!) red bliss potato salad, pasta salad, regular garden salad. And of course...the cake. Cookies, etc...are usually brought by people who come, so I don't bother buying any.
I'm taking the weekend off from blogging - but will be back on Monday full of hopefully something valueable to say - and if nothing else, maybe some great shots of my boy 'Tek from Monday night's game which I cant' wait to go to. A little Cask n' Flagon....a little Fenway....who can ask for more?
Please take time to honor your troops, both past and present - those still standing, and most importantly those fallen. If it wasn't for those who selflessly put their lives on the line for us, we would not be the great country we are today. Do yourself a favor...and go to a Memorial Day parade if you have the chance to.
You'll be glad that you did.
