It Was Scrumptious

Just a note to say the Pork Boys' dinner Thursday night was too yumsome for words.  Wish I had a pic to illustrate this with, but both the ex-roommate and I are having software problems (oh Mary, don't ask!) so you'll just have to take my word for it.  M. P. had already cooked the big Thanksgiving spread for his four adult kids and their spouses/whatevers last Saturday, so he planned just a simple little menu for us, or so he said.

Which consisted of:

Homemade 5-cheese ball and Ritz crackers
Barbecued sausages
Chicken livers and bacon en brochette

Turkey soup

Roasted hen stuffed with
Crackling dressing
Giblet gravy
Cranberry sauce
Baked sweet potatoes
Mashed potatoes
Maque choux (Cajun dish of corn, other veggies, and cream)
Green lima beans
Sliced fresh tomatoes au poivre et sel
Miz Pearly’s fruit salad (heaven! - the secret's in the sauce)
Fried biscuits (to die for - you ain't never had nothing that good in your mouth)

White Zinfandel

Cranberry pie with lattice crust
Apple strudel in puff pastry a la mode
with vanilla bean ice cream


All of it made strictly from scratch (including the sausages), except for the Ritz crackers and the ice cream. And every damn bite of it was larruppin' good, believe me when I tell you. Wish you could have been there, boys.

Gained 10 pounds just reading about it - I shouldn't have had seconds, but couldn't resist.

I couldn't either. And I am still feasting on the leftovers here at home too. Grin.
