I had a sleepover at some friends' house over the weekend. We celebrated six-o de Maio, the King's coronation and the Kentucky Derby with some snacks: chips, guac, homemade salsa with Rotel tomatoes (excellent!), ABT's and grilled Baja Citrus shrimp (Jan hit them with a squirt of lime and a shake of Old Bay - yum!) Many beers. There was stuff to make quesadillas (chicken and steak), but most of us weren't hungry by that time.

Chatted on their porch, overlooking the lake, played a game of Trivial Pursuit, watched the Derby and a bit more TV before bed.

Ann made me strawberry shortcake for my "almost birthday" breakfast!

P.S. I sent this post to Jan and Ann, and Jan replied:

"Add this to your foodie post:

In addition to our traditional Cinco noshes, we place our $2 bets among friends. Lee ever conjures an appropriate theme whatever the celebration. This year’s: a “A Run for the Roses”. They are amazing. As was her shrimp and ever welcomed ABT’s."

I don’t have a lot to report… Sunday we went to the Treveri wine event and picked up our 6 bottles of wine club bubbles plus we ordered a case of two flavours, 6 Syrah bubbly and 6 Pinot Noir bubbly. It looks like that will be it for us. Since Nancy quit drinking due to her heart issues all this bubbly and wine collection is on me and no way I can drink it all by myself but will do my best. I must have four of five cases of bubbly and over 500 bottles of assorted wines. ….anyway Sunday‘s food was two different kinds of sandwiches, cheese and salami trays, fruit and veg trays, and petite fours for dessert. It wasn’t as elaborate as in the past. I’ll miss it just the same.

Last night we got our KFC fix and had my oldest son and DIL for dinner. We sent them home with the leftovers and lots of veg starts from my wife’s grow op. I took no pictures….

RM, an ABT is an Atomic Buffalo Turd, which is very popular in the competition BBQ circuit, as well as with backyard barbecuers. They are jalapenoes stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon, then seasoned with your favorite bbq rub. Best cooked on a smoker, but we did these in a fancy toaster oven. Since I removed all the seeds and membranes, they were very mild, but always delicious.

Karen, was that roasted red bell pepper sauce something you made or bought?

Lee

Made. Chopped up some onions, sweated in butter until translucent in a saucepan, a little bit of garlic for a couple of minutes, added chopped roasted, peeled red bell, cooked for a few, then added some chicken stock, used the immersion blender, added some S and P, then a little bit of heavy cream, which you could also omit and just add a little more stock if you don't want dairy.

Not hard at all, especially if you buy red bells when on sale, roast, peel and freeze in portion sizes.

Just climbed out of the Crib...... DD and Tina brought home some germs, and they and I were battling the after effects in the bed; in the fetal position. Meals were Coricidin , and Tylenol.
Tina made fried breaded egg plant, and chicken soup. It will be a couple day's till my appetite comes back. ...... God forbid I should lose any weight. :rolleyes:
