Saturday was my day off, but there has been some action this week because of some Memorial Day Bonus Cash now being offered on select vehicles. Because of this, I was round-a-boutly asked if I would come in and take care of any overflow customers...
I suggested that the company provide lunch for everyone, and that I would go to the Mkt and purchase all items necessary, soda, ice, chips,, onions, buns, brats, and Koegels Viennas!
...And of course, I cooked everything on the gas grill!
When the brats and the Viennas were cooked to perfection, ( I had a huge pot of beer ((Yeungling))onions and bell peppers, simmering in the kitchen ), they were dumped in the pot, and people could then eat when they were free of customers.
This worked out great, and I even ended up selling an Impala!! So it was worth going in on my day off I guess...
Last night I was bored , so I called on old friend of ours up and asked what she was up to......
Now lets get something straight here, My friend Pat is a single woman of Hispanic descent, we have known each other since college, and she is also my son's God-Mother, and my wifes friend and running partner, and she is like my sister, so it was not anything naughty because my wife is still in Europe,,,,,Are we clear on that?..... So I called her up and she said," come on over, me and my friend Lisa are drinking margarita's"! I said that I would be right over... 10 seconds later the phone rings and it's Pat again, " Gaaaaaalen Honey, me and Lisa and too buzzed to drive, could you stop and get some Tequila and lemons, and Triple-sec?"..What do You think?
Of course I stopped, and I did not buy anything cheap either, I bought this Cuervo Gold 1800!
So I finally arrived and the blender was anxiously awaiting me!!...Man they were great!!
Now Pat is from a family with 8 siblings, and I've known all of them for 35 years or more also.
I've gone to all of their family functions; Open Houses..Weddings..Funerals..Anniversaries.. Birthdays..Christmas Parties..New Years Parties... Tamale Making Parties..I'm an honorarie Gringo Family Member!!..So one by one, siblings dropped in last night at Pat's Place also..
By 10:30 her house was abuzz with fun and laughter!! Certain guests are blessed with having some very very good smoking material, and the blender never stopped running, so by Midnight everyone was pretty much mellow, low-key, and groovin to some great jazz...Pats brother Dan , who is a very good friend of mine also, asked me what I was doing on Sunday, I had no plans.
He asked if I could help him out from about 2-5 , because he was having a Christening Party at their church for his grand-daughter, and would I help in the kitchen because he had huge amounts of smoked meat that needed to be carved sliced and plattered...Of course I said yes!
I gotta tell you, these people can put on the Feed-Bag!! ..This was what they served 85 people..
Home-Made Scalloped Potatoes
Fresh Fruit Salad
Southern Fried Chicken
Slow Smoked Beef Sirloin Tip Roasts
Slow Smoked Hams
And Slow Smoked Pork Butts that was to die for!!
Cakes...Cookies...Brownies...Blah Blah Blah!!!
So.....after spending the better part of two days cooking and serving and cleaning up shit in the kitchen, me and Reese are going to enjoy the rest of our Holiday Bachelor Weekend, eating off of the huge food platter of left-overs that Danny sent home with me...Sorry this was so long and rambling....But who else has posted anything new since Friday?...Hahahahaha.... Peace!
Oh BTW, If you feel like rambling...Tell me what you did so far..... I'm Listening...
