We had a blast this weekend. Saturday night, I cooked Crash Hot Potatoes and Speckled Trout Amandine, given to me from Cajun girlfriend Vickie.
I was torn between whether I wanted Denver or Seattle to win. Peyton Manning is a local boy. On the other hand, Seattle clobbered us a couple of times late in our season…. thus they earned my respect.
Shortly before the game, I chose SEATTLE.
I had a nice spread of food. Dear friend, Goldie from Kentucky, sent me an 18 pound Country Ham. This is an annual thing for us. In return, I send her a Collins Street Fruitcake and a Paul’s Pastry King Cake.
I made 2 different kinds of Deviled Eggs…. one with Balsamic Vinegar and Bacon. The other with ALOT of Garlic. Both were yummy.
My potato salad was a take on a “loaded” baked potato. I used yellow potatoes with the skin on, bacon, sour cream, green onions and sharp cheddar cheese.
Boiled up a pound of Colossal Shrimp which we never got around to.
Also had a couple different types of bread and cheeses. My boys- Dom, Joe and Dennis were eating machines!
The boys did some target shooting. We had fun in the Hot Tub. Joe and I indulged in martinis over the weekend. Pecan Pie martinis, as well as King Cake martinis….fun, fun, fun.
