On Tasty Wrinkles

Hey hey hey … another weekend is done and gone. Tell us something about your weekend?

I had an evening of ballroom, dinners with sister-in-law and father-in-law, a going-away party, work, and Quickstep formation practice. We also attended a Reds baseball game. It was eventually cancelled due to rain, but we received our bobble head commemorating the 25th anniversary of the last time the Reds won the World Series (1990).

Meals: The Musical returns this week, but this act may be the most difficult. Act 3 featuring Sides, which means side dishes for the meal.ย Because of the broadness, there is a wide opportunity for creativity, and the producer understands that he needs to be somewhat flexible. Because the producer is the way he is, below are a few guidelines:

  • The producer still has discretion
  • Vegetables, which includes tomatoes, corn, and beans
  • Grains, products of grains, nut, kinds of nuts
  • Pastas, Soups
  • Unacceptable: Fruit, any fruit, meat and any meat, any dessert, any beverage

I admit that I’ve been anxiously anticipating the opening act. Curtain time will be Wednesday, 9:30 PM (Eastern US).

    • Pauline,
      Act 3 is hard. My initial thought was only vegetables, but simply wanted to expand the offerings. The producer is aiming to be flexible, but his challenge will be deal with comments that challenging him to bend too much.

  1. Definitely the Ray Charles commercial, I love his voice. My weekend, the young man surprised us by showing up at home Friday, saving me from the drive. The young man and I, binge watched all of season 1 of the House of Cards (loved it). Took my laptop in for repairs on Friday And surprisingly I am not going through social media withdrawal.


    • Catherine,
      Cheers to the young man for the surprise visit, let alone spending so much time with his mom. You’re probably further along in House of Cards than me. Gotta love Ray Charles.


  2. Happy Mantanzas Mule Day to you Frank! I had a pretty good weekend. On Saturday morning our village had a baking contest, I entered and got 2nd place in the traybake category with my ‘Pigs in Mud’ ๐Ÿ™‚ They were basically very fudgy frosted brownies with pigs I had made out of pink fondant sitting on top. Saturday evening we went to a pub to watch a band which a couple of our friends are in. Sunday a dog arrived that we are looking after for a few days, and she is the loveliest, friendliest, most fun dog ever – even our cats have started taking to her!


    • Vanessa,
      What a fun weekend … thanks for sharing. Congrats on the 2nd place finish! Going to a pub for an evening with a friend’s band is always a good time. I miss the band one of our friends had. … A new dog? Awesome …. and getting the bonding with the cats is great! Enjoy!!!!! Have a wonderful Mule Day!


  3. I saw The Age of Adaline this weekend. She doesn’t get wrinkles because she never ages. She remains 29. And she’s sad about that. I figure if I looked like Blake Lively (the actress in it), I’d be just fine being 29 forever…

    Happy Monday, Frank!


  4. It’s “Tell a story day!” Bloggers should be rejoicing that their posts are right in step!
    Wed. should be zippy (also quite appropriate for Zipper Day as we all work on the menu for Rebuilding Day – without any shrimp – as instructed.)
    No doubt everyone is baking up a dish while they dance along with the raisin crowd.


    • Mouse,
      I have my first-ever no-fiction story in the blogging queue, so today could have been the day … but Monday Morning Entertainment wins out … could do the next post that goes up this evening, so it would count, but something else planned. Well done at working many days into your comment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. My entire weekend was spent visiting with my brother who was in from Korea! Good food (I cooked), hanging out talking and staying up far to late every single night catching up. It was wonderful, hadn’t seen him in three years.

    Thursday is my day!

    Loved the videos, those commercials are all to funny.
