My son Devin and his lovely wife, my daughter-in-law Ashley, created a very whimsical birthday party for their oldest son, my grandson.
Working with family they made the party imaginative and extraordinary.
This is a perfect meal for any occasion. Terrific to make ahead for a crowd, or for dinner tonight.
A sweet roll, layered with fabulous marinated tender and moist meat, a refreshing slaw with just the right amount of seasoning and then topped with an amazing Island Sauce.
My side dish featuring Couscous is a wonderful change from rice and potatoes.
I roasted garlic, red bell pepper and corn to take this dish to a whole new level of side dish.
Couscous is a a healthy alternative and made so tasty with roasted vegetables and seasonings. Give it a try the next time you want something new and unique.
“John, I’d like to knock sense into that blasted head of yours! It didn’t seem to help before, but maybe this time…” Harry’s voice was gruff as he freed one hand holding on to John’s shirt. Then pulled his fist back as far as he was able, as though gaining all possible leverage for a hard punch.
“Now wait Harry!” sniveled John, and he looked as if he were going to cry.
“Wait for what? Are you going to pay McCleary? Are you going to make up the time we’ve lost due to your idiocy? Are you going to share your crops if we don’t have enough planting season left? What can you do John besides lie, take advantage, cheat and look out for yourself?”
“Umm…..it’s not like that,” John blubbered.
Harry released John with a hard shove, causing John to fall squarely to the ground with a thud.
Picture going to the circus and watching the Trapeze artist, a particularly strong and able-bodied man, who seems to glide through the air from one swinging bar to the next without any effort at all. Then, to everyone’s surprise, he misses a bar and begins to drop to the ground! Luckily he lands in the safety net. What will he do? Get up and continue, or will he stay? What is the life lesson we can learn from John in our story and our Circus Performer?
