Sorry! I couldn't stop myself. I love The Princess Bride & felt this quote was appropriate for tonight's post.
Omid and I went to our friends house for a Spanish Tapas bbq tonight. Lyn & Alan lived in Barcelona for several years. They have been talking about the exquisite food for quite a while and tonight they let us share in the bounty. It was good!
Hosts Lyn & Alan
There was pan con tomate, a-tun, pollo, asparagus & lots of other things plus cava & delicious rioja wine. I gained 10+ pounds tonight!
Here is a small sample of the tapas before the rest were put on the island. Omid and I ate our fill and most of everyone else's too. Sorry!

Remy had garbage gut and was not himself. He chose to be a loner most of the night and ignore everyone. This is how we knew he wasn't feeling good...usually he won't leave us alone. Poor boy!
Fari & Mansour
This is a salad Omid made tonight with lettuce from our planter boxes. Yum!
WARNING: GROSS PHOTO BELOW!
The last time we went to get pedicures, she refused to use the color I wanted because she didn't like it. I argued with her that I liked it and I was paying for it, etc., but she flat out refused. I was midway through the pedicure, so I couldn't leave. We did come to a compromise on the color. Whew!

On our way home, I saw some people walking their dog & they both were wearing hats. My brain quickly remembered that I was also wearing a hat...but I had no recollection of taking it off my trunk and placing it in my car! Both Nas & Matty were so good about looking for my hat on the busy road. Thanks kids!! I had visions of it covered with tire tracks. We turned onto our street and spotted the hat on a fence post. Whoever you are...Thanks so much! I love my hat! Lesson learned: Always put things back where they belong!

Bday girl with Tammie & Maddie.
Ward & Omid launching the potato gun. This gun was so loud, Remy stayed inside and was shaking from fright. I tried to capture it on video but somehow, the sound of the explosion is missing. It was loud...trust me!

This is the Swedish pop star Robyn & she is sporting the cut I want to have. Short like a boy in the back with long bangs in the front. Too cute! I can't wait!

1/2 cup bourbon
1 cup sugar
Mix on medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a slight boil. Add nuts to coat.
Preheat the oven to 300*. Grease a cookie sheet. With a slotted spoon, take the nuts out of the syrup and place them onto the cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Cool & enjoy!
