That afternoon Mummy, Hubby, and I listened to some bootylicious music that I brought with me, and prepared a culinary feast. A dish that was introduced to them by Hubby's sis and bro-in-law, though the name of the dish evades me. A black bean, rice, and pepperoni dish (stir in lots of parsley), served on corn chips with bananas and orange slices. Delicious!
We ate dinner on the screened in porch, the three of us and TSOldtimer, joined later by Amos, CJ, and Becca. We washed down the meal with bottles of different flavored funky pop: Virgil's Root Beer, (which-I just found out-is sold in MI.!) mango pop, and Ginger Beer. (Yes, we say pop in MI. not soda!) All drinks that I associate with farm living, since I had never heard of any of these things before I moved out East.
We ate Jelly Slugs and Bertie Bott's Every flavor beans for dessert and laughed over the grody flavors jelly bean flavors that we each got, which include: Black Pepper, Blueberry, Booger, Buttered Popcorn, Dirt, Earthworm, Ear Wax, Grape, Grass, Green Apple, Lemon Drop, Sardine, Sizzling Cinnamon, Soap, Bacon, Rotten Egg, Toasted Marshmallow, Tutti-Fruitti, Very Cherry, & Vomit. Kids at heart.
