If you scroll down, you’ll see a picture someone took several years ago at one of our breakfasts. Although you can’t actually see the bacon in the photo, you can be sure it was there.
Dinner can range from the simple to the sublime. Spaghetti on Saturday, followed by sloppy joes on Sunday (that would my contribution — Sarah’s really, since she did all the work — the simple part of the equation), tacos on Monday and Wisconsin brats and corn on Tuesday.
For the sublime, Wednesday brought pork stew, created by Rand of California, and on Thursday we had a sizzling jambalaya, courtesy of Todd, another West Coast chef. Then, Friday, we were back to spaghetti, a mix of the Saturday, Sunday, and Thursday’s leftovers. There may have even been some of Tuesday’s bratwurst in the pot.
Oh, and even though he didn’t cook as far as I know, Mike gets a special honorable mention for bringing the margarita machine.
I told you the Metro Warbirds lead a charmed life.
