I apologise to all the footyball fans out there... but I am just not one and could not care less about the stupid bowl.
Instead Bradley and I (mostly I) made a pot of chicken and dumplins
Michael's been working on the pond all day, last week the main pump died... it was 7 or 8 years old so ... We don't feel too badly about it dying.
Last night we went to home depot and bought another gallon of slate gray paint for the underpinning blocks and to put another coat on the porch floor, and a new pump, then we went out to eat ... I had crab legs, Michael had I dunno what cause I was in line forever to get my legs... and he was about done eating when I finally sat down.
Conversations in the crab leg line is a hoot however... the man behind me decided to tell the woman in front of me and me alot of stuff... He said that he and his wife had been to three places to eat, the golden corral had long lines outside, the hibachi grill 30 plus minute wait then they ended up at the Grand buffet which was PACKED last night. we finally determined it was packed for three reasons...
1. it is tax season and people have a bit of extra money.
2. It is the first week of the month and people get their govt checks on the 3rd
3. the food is REALLY REALLY good here. :)
the man really cracked me up as he said he does not even eat crab legs he was standing there for his wife.
when I finally got back to the table I told Michael about the man... I cant repeat what he said but... I LAUGHED alot... *not at that man but at what Michael said that had nothing to do with that man*
the crab legs were fantastic! but lemmie tell you about the people watching ... OH MY GOD IF ONLY I COULD HAVE GOTTEN SOME PICS....
there was a WHOLE family all dressed identically from their shirts, belts, designer pants with designer trim and Shoes ... and they did not look good... can we say TACKY...
and this one girl... oh I nearly got up to go talk to this young woman... she had on a tight shirt, jeans with HUGE parts cut out and it was a real miracle that her pubes were not hanging out and 6 inch high heels... and she was not Katie P gawgus... she was chunky and with her stuff hanging out... well I actually felt sorry for this dumb girl who did not have a clue... but Michael stopped me ...
there were some really bad kids in there too... well lemmie rephrase that the kids were not bad persay, however they were allowed to run screaming all over the restaurant and allowed to go to the food bars with out adults to help... and it was just rude so it was the PARENTS who were BAD. the little girls were actually cute little shits.
and there were some really sweet well behaved kids there too... on my second time in the leg line a little boy about 5 maybe 6 at most was standing by me... he had a couple orange slices he was working on while we waited he never spoke a word... and lemmie tell you when they do finally bring out the legs there are not many ... so they are basically fought over... The lady before me had all this crap to say then dove into the bin and loaded her plate so full... I mean seriously get a few its all you can eat you can stay hours and get more if you want... anyway I put some on my plate and saw that the woman across from me was going to empty the pan so I grabbed a few more and asked the little boy if he was ready he smiled and nodded I put them on his plate and he muttered thank you and went on his way... the lady behind him... poor thing had to wait for the next bin to come out as the other side decimated the pan.
Friday night i was putzing on facebook waiting on stephanie to come get bradley and one of my friends was talking about what she was cooking... I have heard her mention these tea cakes before and wanted to know how to make them so she sent me the recipe I had all the ingredients so decided to make these "tea cakes" they are a kind of sugar cookie but oh my so delish...I stayed up till 230 making them ... and ate a pretty good number of them too...
WELL I hear some chicken and dumplins calling my name.... so ttfn! Hope you all have a wonderful SUNDAY!!!!
