Me karaoke? Not in this lifetime, and I'm pretty sure not in the next one either. But Shane and Kat will, along with a few other people who attended Shane's mom's birthday party Saturday night.
Shane's good friend John brought his karaoke equipment and set it up on the back deck of MIL's house. They live in a very small town and they have a huge back yard with lots of shade where we barbecued, played horseshoes, watched the kids run around and act crazy and enjoyed the live entertainment. I don't think we ever got loud enough for anyone to complain, but it didn't hurt that my brother-in-law is the town cop there...
So, that was our Saturday night. Saturday morning Shane and I hit the outdoor flea market that's held at an old drive-in theater on every weekend the weather permits. It was absolutely packed with both buyers and sellers. We hadn't been for a couple of years and were amazed at how many people were there. Shane found some of the specialty tools he uses for work. I found a few replacement pieces for my everyday Corelle dishes. That's all we bought, though.
Sunday was a lazy day for us, and we really didn't do much. We were so tired that you'd have thought we'd done some serious partying the night before, but really, it wasn't a late night at all. Kat and I left at 9:30 and Shane followed half an hour later after he helped John put the equipment away. I guess it was just one of those days. I managed a couple of loads of laundry and some supper, but not much more.
Speaking of food (and when am I not?) I made The Bacon Explosion for the picnic.
Have you heard of it? I heard of it about a year ago from a friend, then again a few days ago from McVal at Sew Not My Day. The picnic was the perfect time for us to give it a try. There were no leftovers. If you would like to try it yourself, you can find the recipe HERE.
