Last night I went to hands on for the first time in a while. I was supposed to make it for the date auction, but i was too late. They were auctioning off all of the architects. But i did make it there in time for the Tallent Show. i had a wonderful time. there. There are some amazing tallents there. I heard a few really great poems, and this one guy that is an Architecture student from UMN does strikingly close impressions of frogs, kangaroos, rabbits, walrus, marionettes, and a CGI man. But the funniest thing he did was lay down on the ground and made his hand into a monster, and made it attack a pack of cigarettes. It was great. I wish i had a video.
We made our way to the PUB after the show was over. I have to say... i really enjoy visiting hands on... but i am glad i dont live there, but i really like their activities, and almost everyone there is really friendly, smart and fun.
My Momma is coming today. Hells yeah! We are going to try one of the nice restaurants down town, i think mosaic, the tapas bar. Then i am working tonight, and mom is going to hang out up there for a while and meet a few more of my friends. The ones that met her on Mardi Gras are excited to hear that she is coming back. I am sure it is going to be a fun day.
Tomorrow we are heading to Baton Rouge for the Auburn v. LSU baseball game. It is a ladie's trip. A bunch of my Momma's girl friends are already there. Oh... I feel trouble coming on.
OH! and the other thing. MY DINNER PARTY
So, i have decided that i am going to have a dinner party for about 15 people on tuesday night. I am pretty excited, and a bit nervous... because 15 people is a lot of people to cook for, especially on a work day.... hahaha... it is all good though, i can handle it.
So the menu so far is:
Pepper Jelly, Cream Cheese, and Ritz Crackers
Jessie's super big crazy salad.... if you have ever had my salad's you know what that has in it.
Banana Walnut Bread Pudding with a buttery rum sauce.
I am needing a few more appetizers and something else with the main course. if anyone has any suggestions please let me know....
Right now i dont have a blender, so my spring vegie soups are kind of out of the questions, and my salad is crazy full of vegies. I am kind of thinking about a black bean soup.... alright, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. oh.. and i dont want anything white/yellow, the quiche is already that.... alright...
all that being said, time for me to clean my place.... my momma will be here soon.
