Anita and I decided to make Kenny Chesney’s summer tour an annual event. This year we were lucky enough to see our favorite group, Sugarland, perform for about an hour. Lady A. was great, too. Who wants to join us next year?

We met up with some of Anita’s friends who were tailgating. What? Tailgating? Hadn’t done this in 10 years. My flip cup skills quickly came back and I helped to push my team to victory.

Roadies. We saw nothing exciting.

These guys stole our seats. But we liked our stolen ones better. Besides, they looked scary.

Sugarland! All of these photos were taken with an old camera so they aren’t that great.

End of the show…we were tired. Couldn’t stay for all of Kenny. Maybe next year.

That was the rule on Father’s Day. Dad had the old croquet set up and we played two rounds. Mom made a delicious dinner. Good times were had all around. Thanks for a fun day everyone!

Herb Pesto and My Best Omelet June 7, 2009

I was inspired today. I’ve been eating crap lately and my body is craving freshness!

Breakfast: the best omelet I’ve ever made. Two eggs, one whole scallion, two mushrooms, three slices of tomato, a touch of Parmesan cheese, and a sprig of dill.

Then I made some pesto. I never use a recipe so it’s a lot of guessing whenever I do this. Today I grabbed a handful of fresh basil, sage, and thyme, and threw it in the processor with slivered almonds, garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. I could eat this all right now:
