Day 292: Popcorn, Red Wine and Cheese

Mike had just put a frozen Dr. Oetker spinach pizza in the oven (W devours these as if they weren’t even covered with green stuff) when the phone rang; it was A asking if I wanted to come see Feist in a friend’s private box. Hmm.. work or Feist in a private box? I was there in 20 minutes.

There was quite a spread, but mostly I got sucked into the cheese platter and popcorn – love that Saddledome stuff, and there was a vat of it. Leftovers, just so you know, make the best caramel corn; you get all that buttery saltiness under the caramel. (Try adding a tablespoon of cocoa to the caramel mixture for chocolate caramel corn. Maybe for Halloween?)

So I suppose that counted as dinner, while M and W ate the aforementioned pizza. We had been grazing all afternoon; I skipped out of my other event at noon today to attend the best Jungle Party of the season – a third birthday where the snacks included egg salad sandwiches on white bread with the crusts cut off, ants on a log, spiders made out of blocks of marble cheese and chow mein noodles, and a DQ ice cream cake decorated with an elaborate safari scene from Madagascar.

(Thanks for the invite A&R!)

    Sounds like a great evening. How was the concert?

    My husband and I had popcorn for dinner as well. We drank an iced tea because they don’t let you bring red wine to the movie theatre. We saw Wall-E which is a very cute movie, good for all ages.

    Hope you get more time to relax, your schedule is just too full and we don’t want you to get burnt out.

    Take care.
