Mini weekend update May 30, 2010

Bloglettes!  It’s been so long.  Not really, but I’ve missed you.  How is everyone’s Memorial Day weekend going so far?  Friday night, Wayne and I went to an “after golf get-together” at one of his new coworker’s house (Wayne golfed, I didn’t).  In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a wee bit antisocial shy, so I was a little anxious about it.  It was fine though… met lots of people, heard a lot of “shop talk,” and had some good food.  I brought Summer Corn Dip with Fritos Scoops and celery sticks for dippers.  It was a big hit and everyone liked it a lot.  I didn’t take a pic, but you can go this post to see one, since I’ve made it before.  Saturday night, we went to another new coworker’s house for a much smaller get together.  It was just us, them, and their 2 kids.  We had drinks, played washers, Euchre (WOOT WOOT for fellow Michiganders!), ate an amaaaazing meal (T-bone steaks on the grill!!), and chatted on their deck until after midnight.  We brought some BBQ cocktail weenies and this platter of nibbles.

Sharp cheddar, grapes, swiss/pepperjack, strawberries, green/black olives and crackers that I added to the platter when we got there.

Today has been pretty low-key.  We got some groceries, did some laundry, and I’ve been catching up on blog-reading.  Tonight’s dinner was simple and very tasty.

  • Corn on the cob
  • Zucchini:  Sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder
  • Inside Out Buffalo Hot Wings:  Recipe from Sweet & Savory.  I used feta instead of blue cheese.  Yuh-um, definitely will be making these again!

That’s all for now, friends!  Wayne is going out of town for work on Tues-Sun (almost 6 days!! uuggh), so I need some dinner ideas for myself.  I like to experiment while Wayne is gone, so hook a girl up with some yummy ideas?
