Texas Hold'em, Foood, And A Change Of Plans..
Saturday night, The plan was to have dinner with 4 other couples at Cafe' Buff(my house!). The menu was card party food stuff... I had made the cheesecake, made up a hearty pasta salad(spiral colored rotini, green and black olives,sliced, chopped onion, chopped pepperoni, chopped ham, chopped hard cooked eggs, and two kinds of cheese- in an appropriate sauce!), Those plain, but tasty Bisquick sausage cheese balls, deviled eggs, a home made pizza, and munchies...
We had cleaned the house, and were pretty much ready for our guests.. The reason we had done all this, is a dear, old friend of ours was diagnosed with cancer. We thought it would be nice for him to play some cards with us, as four of us had played cards together since ninth grade!
The best laid plans of mice and men... I got a phone call about three hours before we were to start from his wife. They were not going to make it to our house, as my buddy was just feeling too poorly. The chemotherapy he gets every other week is really kicking his butt... We were disappointed, but certainly understood.
The rest of the guests arrived, and we all ate, then husbands and wives all played Texas Hold'em. A good time was had by all, and it broke up around midnight. My wife took 1st and 2nd a lot, and I did OK too!
Sunday is clean-up, and with leftovers- food won't be a problem!
Enjoy your upcoming week, everybody!
P.S.- The last photo is a chicken spaghetti we had Friday night.. I've got a new computer, and I'm still getting used to the features, and how they work!
