How about some weekend snapshots? I’ll warn you now, they are (almost) all food!
Friday Night Snacks. You know the drill. Note the St. Patrick’s Day cocktail napkins. And also the cucumber “subs” which I made by hollowing out cucumbers and filling them with ham, swiss and cream cheese.
On Saturday I went to the Blue & Gold banquet and spoke on behalf of the Board of Selectmen. It did my heart good to see our community come together to support our scouting program.
We went to a couple of breweries in the afternoon with Jo-Ann and Shawn. We drank some beer, ate some pretty great Irish grub, were entertained by Irish step dancers, and then came back to our house for Mexican Train. Oh! And Shawn taught me to play cribbage and I might be a little obsessed at this point.
On Sunday the kids came over for dinner. I roasted a chicken (easier and more well liked around here than corned beef and cabbage) but I did give a nod to St. Patrick’s Day with veggies in the colors of the Irish flag.
And cupcakes from a friend with gorgeous green frosting and sparkles. They were delicious and beautiful!
That’s my weekend in a nutshell. It was good and it went by too fast . . . in other words, it was just like most other weekends around here!
