It Takes A Long Time To Grow Old Friends

No trip to the US would be complete without a night with my Five Fabulous Friends. This time we managed, thanks to Mike (aka Guido) and Annie to have two awesome throw downs at her house.

The first night it was just the girls, the night before Melanie's wedding, and the second time, we decided that the "Along for the Ride" gang could join us.

We are a snitty bunch of old broads, aren't we?

Mike is making some sort of flat bread from a Bobby Flay recipe he tweaked. I can't remember everything that was in it, but there was feta cheese, meat, black beans, and all kinds of good stuff. I bet the guys at the firehouse love it when he cooks, because we sure do!!

Here they are all rolled up and ready for the grill. I'd really like to report what exactly he put in there and how he did it but I truly can't remember. Once they came off the grill, we sliced them....yummy!!!

These are the hands of the Fab Five. Don't ask why.....because, again, I can't remember, but it was important at the time.

Here we all are in a semi-upright position, Janet, me, Maureen, Pam, and Ann. We have little clippy things that Ann bought for all of us with our initials. See, I remembered that......

We are all laughing hysterically at something, but for the life of me I couldn't tell you what it was....again, I forgot.

Mike, Annie, and Jack

Mike the Party Peeper, 'cause every party needs a peeper

This is Maureen's foot. Now, you might be asking yourself why I would put a picture of her foot on this blog. Well, if you notice, she has somewhat of a "dew claw" on that right foot of hers. Known about it for years but forgot until she mentioned it that night. Her brother always said they should have clipped that thing off when she was born. Only purpose it serves is to fill her shoes.

These are five fabulous feet. I do remember why we took this, because we didn't know what was wrong with our faces because we all laughed til we nearly cried about the "dew claw", so we figured just for fairness, we'd all take our shoes off!

I'm sure we are all laughing at something terribly funny. Damned if I can remember what it was though......

A fun night was had by all. But then again, we all seem to be pretty enthusiastic about continuing to grow old friends.

Cindy, the secret to any great party recipe is to make sure the guests are pleasantly baked prior to serving,( that should be prior to being served). Damn that didn't sound any better, oh well. ciao
