Finally, as promised...The Trip!!!!First off, I must talk about food....I mean that's what we are all here for, right? The first night we arrived, we had burgers - wonderfully seasoned and nicely shaped, thanks to Jenifer (Chris's sister-in-law)...simple enough :) Wednesday night we had some amazing sausage lasagna - (huge) thanks to Kathy (Chris's step-mom) for that task! I could just kick myself for not getting a picture of it!!! Grrrrr... Saturday, we were treated to dinner (thank you Ed (Chris's dad) and Kathy!) at a quaint little bbq place called "My Place BBQ". Their ribs were to die for! Saturday morning, Jenifer made us a fabulous breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon....and let's not forget the lemon bread she made AND the raspberry coffee cake she made. Maybe she'll do a guest post for me one of these days :)
And Friday night...Well, Friday night, Eddie (Chris's older brother) made these:
TERRIFIC MAN TACOS!!!!!
Yes, that's right... Terrific Man Tacos...and they truly were terrific!!! Can you believe that those are corn tortillas AND that he did them on the GRILL??? That's right, I said GRILLED these tacos. Now, I'm not sharing the recipe with you...not at this time anyway :) I have been given the go ahead to create my own version of these bad boys....so give me a little time, my loyal readers and I will bless you with my best rendition of these tasty little treats!
Now, I must speak of the Inaugural Canterbury Grand Prix at Pistol Point Circuit!! That's right, the first of many go-kart contests between brothers. Who knows, maybe some day it will be more then just a go-kart??? Maybe you'll see these brothers riding along side the greats, like Jimmie Johnson or Dale Earnhardt Jr., or dare I say, Jeff Gordon?? lol Ok, ok, so that's probably not where this will end up, but the point is, they had fun AND no one was seriously injured!
Here's Jason...he's the one that put this whole thing together. Jason is the biggest race fan I have ever met. He even created rules.... I mean you must have rules, right??
Here's the whole gang....from left to right -
Eddie, Chris, Jason, Vincent, Josh, and Ed:I think I can safely say that everyone had a fantastic time......
But in the end, there could be only one winner, and you'll never believe who it was....
That's right... my baby was CHAMPION!!!! WOOT WOOT!!!
We played a lot, laughed a lot, drank a lot, ate a lot...we even dropped the keys to the boat in the lake AND got stopped by lake patrol....I would say that it was a successful vacation for sure!
(Sorry I don't have any recipes for you today...but don't worry, tomorrow I'll be back with something simple and delicious, cause that's how I roll, baby!!!!)
