We finally sat down to play poker around 9ish. I was the first person out. Twice. Not my best performance. Then I retreated to the basement where I also was substandard at Rock Band. I blamed my cold. Tim said it might be the wine......
Saturday we took my parents to the art museum. Tim had to work that night and we were all happy to take a night off and rest.
Mom & Dad left this morning to the screams of Eion as he wailed, "I want to go with Oma and Opa!" He rallied when he heard we would be going to his friend John Paul's house later. We had commented earlier that we would have to go to a bar to watch the Lions and see if they would actually run the tables in reverse. Melanie and Jerry, who have NFL Sunday Pass, were kind enough to let us impose on them and watch the game there. We did get to see the Lions complete their 0-16 season and more importantly, had a great time. And I was able to introduce them to cheese slaw which really is a right of passage in Roanoke. I know all the in town folks know how to make it but for everyone else:
1 lb shredded swiss cheese (take the extra time and do it yourself, it is worthwhile)
1/2 cup chopped banana peppers
1/2 cup chopped jalapeno peppers
1 bunch chopped green onions
mayo to bind
Serve with Fritos Scoops. Guaranteed to please!
