The beginning of the week, we always take a day to play golf with my brother and sister-in-law. The golf course in nearby Carizzo Springs, is quite unique; as it winds around a very small airport. One of the signs on the course says, "Do not hit golf balls when planes are taking off or landing." We always get a huge laugh out of reading that sign, even after 12 years of reading it.
This is one of the huge palm trees on the course. I find it unusual standing among the mesquite trees that are so common in this part of Texas. And, it is huge!
Each morning, the guys take their turn cooking breakfast! We have an outside quad area that includes a free standing stove with oven, a prep area consisting of a butcher block (non-working) dishwasher; and a most recently added microwave. There is also a long table where we all sit down to eat together~which usually totals about 10 people or more on any given weekend. This quad area is covered by a large tin roof, which keeps our heads dry when it rains; and cool from the normally very hot sun. My husband usually cooks the most often, and on this particular morning his menu included eggs over-easy, bacon, sausage and sweet potato pancakes. I am not the biggest pancake fan, but these were~YUMMY! His brother had given him a new tilt griddle for Christmas, and he was trying it out this particular morning; in anticipation of our summer RV trips.
Allen had the Seafood Sampler~look a salad with heart!
Oh, yes, I did work on some jewelry while away~
