I hope everyone had a good weekend. It was a very busy, but fun, weekend here. The kids had off of school Friday, so Snuggle Bunny had a friend sleep over Thursday night. They spent all day Friday jumping between playing Kinect games, or hopping on their laptops to check on their Club Penguin accounts. Friday was Whirling Dervish's first lacrosse scrimmage. The team looked good, but I'll be honest, I spent the bulk of the time catching up with some of the moms that I haven't seen since the end of the travel season instead of watching the game.
I spent the bulk of Saturday in the kitchen prepping, cooking, and cleaning for the poker game that night. I shared the fitted table cover that I whipped up for our dining room table on a break from the kitchen action. Computer Genius said that it worked out great. I'll have to take his word on it, because we draw for seats, and I sat at the other table the whole night. This is what had me in the kitchen all day.
It was a fun night in which there was a lot of hugs, laughs, and stories told. And yes, I did leave the table with money in my pocket - third place money to be exact. I'd have pictures of the guests, laughing around the table, but once that first wine bottle was uncorked, I put down my camera and just enjoyed the party.
And here's that recipe for the seafood scoops:
Mix together 6oz(half a package) of imitation crab or lobster, diced, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 finely diced red onion, a small squeeze of sriracha hot sauce, and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Fill Tostitos scoops with a rounded teaspoon of the filling. Bake at 400 until the tops of the filling has started to get some color - about 15-20 minutes. So super easy, and a real crowd pleaser. One note for my GF readers - a lot of imitation seafood uses wheat starch as a thickener, make sure yours uses potato starch. The imitation lobster that I buy uses potato starch.
Thanks for popping in and partying with me. Speaking of parties, the Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays is still in full throttle. Check it out here. You can continue to link up through Thursday.
