Odds And Ends: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

Hey ya’ll, what’s up? How was your holiday weekend? Of course it’s always too damn short. But hubs and I made the best of it anyway.

Saturday, we lazed around and had a very late and delicious brunch. Myron broke our very nice waffle iron and we had waffles, sausage and hash brown potatoes topped with cheese and sour cream. So that big meal deserved another epic nap and so an epic nap was taken!

We then got up and got dressed to head out to hang with a friend at a day party she was hosting, then left there to go to another friend’s crawfish boil. We stayed there for the rest of the evening, good eats (and drinks) were had by all.

Sunday, seems a slight hangover was acquired by yours truly so I slept a bit longer and then we got up to check out Hangover 3. It was funny, but underwhelming. Wait for the Redbox or Netflix for that one.

After the movie, we ran by the store so I could pick up the ingridients for the evening’s snack: Hot Crab Dip with Crostini. A very “savvy” Twitter friend shared the recipe with me.

Nap time again commenced. I woke up to 2 frantic messages from my mom and aunt, imploring me to come meet some relatives who were in from California, whom I barely knew and wanted to see me. Reluctantly and petulantly, I threw on some clothes and went to my parents house, where I was ooohed and aaahed over like I was an infant. It was annoying to say the least. I hadn’t seen some of these folks since I was a child and probably won’t see them again anytime soon but dutiful child duty called so there we are. I ate a burger, had some of my dad’s awesome sprinkle cake and chit chatted. I made my escape after an about an hour and went back home.

Upon arriving home, I straightened up the kitchen and made the hot crap dip, which was excellent and so luxuriously rich. It’s definitely a holiday or special occasion treat as it’s not cheap to make!


Monday, I laid upon my arse almost the entire day, with the exception of a bit of kitchen duty and some vaccuuming. Hubs did some fajitas on the grill, I made myself a margarita in the blender and called this weekend a wrap.

What did you do this past weekend?

  1. We didn’t do jack crap and I loved every minute of it. Oh wait, I’m trying to get my green thumb on so we took a quick trip to Lowe’s to pick up some stuff. Honestly that (and Cracker Barrel) were the highlights.

  2. Friday after work I chilled at home with a margarita or two. Saturday was spent pool side with one friend I don’t get to see much due to our work schedules, followed by a BBQ dinner. Sunday I chilled at home, and then Monday I dropped by the home of a couple I knew for a small gathering. I would call it a bbq, but it was more of the “throw some burgers and hot dogs on the grill” type of thing.

  3. That dip looks delicious. I have no “off” button – I would eat that whole thing in one sitting!

    We hung out with family, lazed around the house, went to the pool and slept – a lot 🙂

  4. The hot crab dip must be making its way around the Internet, because I’ve had it in my head for no good reason for a couple weeks now. And you just made me crave it even more!
