The Start To A LONG Week And A Half

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Today is my last day at work for 11 days. I'm off on DTO for two big races. The first one starts Thursday, but Chuck is at the track with our rig now. Tomorrow will be last min things, propane, taco fixings (tomatoes, lettuce, chopped onions) and hot dog buns. I have menus all planned out for Thursday though Sat and Sunday will be left overs. Plus we have our annual Luau on Fri night. Here's what the menu has on it:

Taco Thursday - Tacos with the trimmings though out the day.

Bean Soup Friday - Portuguese Bean Soup during the day.

Friday Night Luau - Chuck's Ono H
awaiian Ribs (pork spareribs)
Kalbi Ribs (beef short ribs)
Kalua Pig (pulled pork)
Shoyu Chicken (sweet, spicy soy sauce chicken)
Chuck's Hawaiian Potato/Mac Salad
Steamed Rice
Haupia (Hawaiian style coconut pudding)
Malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts)

Chili Saturday - Chili with extras (cheese & onions)
Chili Dogs with the above extras.

Left Over Sunday - Anything left over!

Everyday - Coffee, Tea, Hot Coco

And a few pictures of what we made ahead for it.

Portuguese Bean Soup (12 qts!)

Taco meat (2.5 qts!)

Chili (8 qts!)

Plus we made 45 lbs (cooked...it started out at 75 lbs) of ONO Hawaiian spareribs.

Needless to say NO ONE is going hungry this weekend! emoticon

We have a couple of guests stating with us this week too. One from Hawaii and one from Cali. It's going to be a BUSY week!

Then next week..the 20-25, we'll still be at the track for a second race. This is the LVMS Turkey races. We'll be having Thanksgiving out there. Our friends are bring a full turkey dinner and we'll be taking a full roast beef dinner (both will be store brought meals, I'm all cooked out!) I'll need to come back to work on the 26 of Nov to get some rest!

Since I'm off almost all this week, I'm not working out. My weight was up this morning, but I had chili last night so I'm hoping it's water. I mean you just don't gain 4 lbs over night. And I'm not taking sweets to the track so I should be OK there.

And some BIG news for Chuck...his daughter is expecting....TWINS!!!!! She told us on Sunday. We couldn't be happier! She is due in June but being twins..they may come in May. They are fraternal twins and we don't know the sexes yet. emoticon

So that's it. I know I missed a few blogging but I have been a bit busy! Have a great day and week everyone!
