Memorial Day 2011

A year ago over Memorial Day weekend Dave and I went to New Hope, PA.

This year we went crabbing.

Dave’s mom and I went to the beach.

And then came back and watched them crab (?) is that the verb?

And then we went to Dairy Queen.

I love Dairy Queen.

On Monday we had our geek fest I mean barbecue.      To explain – when Dave was first separated he joined (and now runs) a MeetUp group of people who like to play board games and trivia.  I have never gone to one of the board game events so I only knew the trivia folks.  I’m being mean.  The truth is they were all lovely (if slightly eccentric) people and everyone seemed to have a great time.

I made a corn salsa that was to die for if I do say so myself.   You can find it in this month’s Food Network Magazine.april may 062 And bruschetta.april may 063     april may 072 A lot of people brought pasta salad.  Guess which one was mine?april may 073 april may 074  april may 076 The other best seller was dessert.  april may 082I made a flag cake.  It was noted it was not historically accurate.april may 079 

I said eccentric people attended earlier didn’t I? :)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We’re heading to Miss Ellie’s (my goddaughter) 4th birthday bash this weekend.  I am sure there will be plenty to report.
