But I make a Lousy guest!
The pool is remodeled and summer is here (at least here in Pearland). It's time for the annual Memorial Day Pool Party and Barbecue!
Nonetheless, the biggest prep work was the macaroni and pea salad. I chopped celery, green onions, pickles, tiny cheese cubes, bell peppers -- red and green -- jalapeño, all to serve a 1 pound bag of elbow macaroni . . . + mayonnaise, mustard, and pickle juice! It had to "cure" overnight . . . so it should be extremely yummy!
And three whole chickens are marinated and ready to go on the Traeger smoker . . . mmmmm . . . going to be so good.
So, since I had the "jump" on this feast, I decided to attend my dear friend Kassandra's pool party, held
But today is a new day. And I'm the host of this pool party. And I shan't drink a beer. And a wonderful feast will be had by all, assuming they attend.
And I thank God for the right to tell this story. And I thank my living soldier friends and ask God to be kind to those who shall have bourne the battle. Happy Memorial Day . . . don't do what I did at someone's party . . . bury thy tongue.
So . . . am I the only one who has ever had a few beers and let his tongue get the better of him? Or, have you, too? What's your story?
