This was not the email I wanted to get this weekend:
Noooooooooo! The Highlandtown Wine Festival is just blocks from our house and definitely one of the highlights of the year. We had been looking forward to it for weeks. But after seeing what the weather has been like today, postponing it was definitely a good call.
However we did not let this get in the way of some good times this weekend. We had leftover crabs from last Sunday's dinner so the Hubs made his mom's crabs and spaghetti recipe and invited some friends over Friday night for our own little impromptu festival.
It was all kinds of good, too. I wish I could share a recipe but the instructions are a whole lot of "just add enough until it tastes right" steps. Any attempt to document it would just result in me leading innocent souls astray.
We didn't have dessert prepared, but thankfully another friend arrived just in time. And his name was Mr. Tasty:
|Nothing like seeing a couple of grown men excited about the ice cream truck|
And I engaged in a whole new kind of double fisting:
Since our friends usually end up coming over to our house after the wine festival anyway for dinner and the inevitable visit from the ice cream truck, this was the perfect way to tide us over until May 20th.
Man, I really love it when a Plan B comes together.
