So, last weekend, we bought a grill. Yesterday we got the gas line installed in our house so that we could use the grill. Naturally, I was planning on having steaks for dinner.
Long about 0930, I get a call from Erica while I’m at work. “Hey honey, I know you’re excited about grilling. I’m excited about hanging out with my friends. Can I have some of my physics-major friends over?” I figured, sure, why not? They’re my friends too. The more the merrier.
Well, there were more. I ended up cooking for twelve people. Pleasantly, my grill has plenty of room to cook on. I cooked steaks for most people, chicken breasts for a couple, burgers for a couple and lots of veggies (bell peppers, squash, tomatoes, zucchini, and onions). It was all really very good.
Party continued. Margaritas were had. We burned the chiminea again, and I ended up watching the fire burn down while everybody else played Outburst. I enjoyed that. Then we all played charades until midnight when I went to bed. I assume the party continued after that, but I’m not sure how long because despite their volume, I was out cold in five minutes.
So, that’s why there was no blogging yesterday. I spent from about 1700 - 0000 entertaining. It was fun, though. Expect more bloggy goodness from me today.
