In Case You Missed The First Announcment
After fun events the two previous years, Katherine Aucoin, Chris Grove, and Larry Doolittle are pleased that we will be able to host a blogger party again this year. The date we’ve selected is May 27 – we realize this is Memorial Day weekend and thought the extra day for travel might make it easier for some to be here.
The event will once again be held at Bev and Larry’s home near Greenback, Tn. and the menu will be a crawfish and shrimp boil – if you’re not a shellfish eater, come anyway and we’ll grill you something. Unlike previous times, we’ll be asking for a donation to help with the meat costs.
We’ll send out more details in early April but wanted to get on your calendar now. We’ll be asking for an RSVP later, but so we can start our planning, please let Larry know now if you think you might join us – email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also please feel free to publicize this on your blog to reach more potential attendees. We hope you can join us.
For breakfast on Sunday morning, we just reheated some of the leftover potatoes and corned beef and fried an egg all in the same pan.
Afterward, I thought to myself – dummy you have potatoes and corned beef already cooked, why didn’t you make hash? So that’s what I did the next morning, adding a little additional green onion and Dubliner Irish Cheddar and cooking the eggs in
Then there was the required Reuben for supper one night - except it really wasn't because we used 1000 Island dressing and Irish cheddar cheese rather than Russian dressing and swiss cheese - but our corned beef on rye was very good.
I may have I already railed about the restaurant we recently ate at, offering a fish reuben - putting fried fish, cheese, and cole slaw between two pieces of rye bread does not a reuben make - I hate when people take such wild liberties - kinda like calling all drinks a martini just because they happen to be served in a martini glass regardless of what's in them - Sandra Lee did this a while back - no gin or dry vermouth and she called it a something or other martini - why not just give it a new name? Pretty soon we'll have to invent a new language because the current definitions of things won't mean anything. Okay rant over.
