T-Minus 4 Days

We are getting ready for our friends to come over on Sunday for Memorial Day. We hang out in the front yard: no electronics for the kids, food, beer, pool (baby and kiddo) appetizers, steaks, Baggo, football toss game, hammock, other games are being planned, as well as our semi-annual 80's music trivia game. Why Sunday? Gives us all a chance to relax and recover before work. I'm sure our house will be invaded by the neighborhood kids.

I am slowly ramping up the preparations (cleaning and food) this week, and will make "What I did today" type posts.

Sweetheart had two adult cherry Cokes in Branson, MO and we are replicating our own version.  The Maraschino cherry syrup is drained and replaced with Cherry Moonshine so that the cherries become little alcohol bombs of goodness. Cherry Coke anyone?

Two ounces of mung beans were started on Monday with a 24 soak, then rinsed and drained every morning and afternoon. These will be used for an Asian appetizer that I have planned. More to follow on this little delicacy...

The menu is firming up to look like this:

Hors d'oeuvres 
Asian Plate Appetizer (meat, mung salad, rice,and spicy dipping sauce)
Jalapeno Poppers
Teriyaki Chicken Sticks

Main Menu
North Carolina Cole Slaw (family recipe)
Potato Salad (family recipe)
Brussels Sprouts
Grilled squash, zucchini, and red peppers
French Fries

Evening Snack

Frozen Cheese Pizzas topped with grilled veggies and steak (leftovers)
