We spent Saturday gathered with friends and family at The Compound. The boys, Donnie and BJ fried up some gator nuggets that were out of this world! We had Texas fat back beans and fat back black eyed peas that Deanna shared. Toss in some picnic staples like deviled eggs (R&B and the Moose and I are never short on eggs!), potato salad, and a couple different variations of cucumber tomato salads from Brenda and my parents. Then we topped it off with a strawberry rhubarb cake my Mom made.
Needless to say, we all went home fat and sassy!
An area neighbor stopped by on his airboat, and gave some of the gang a ride out in the swamp. If you could have seen the face on Miss Brenda when she returned from her very first airboat ride! It was priceless!
It’s always nice to take a step back from work once and a while and enjoy the stories, and laughter. Even if the picnic becomes a total washout in the end.
