Arizona – Day 5 (Take me out to the ball game)

Wednesday started off like most days, kinda slow, and relaxing. Jane made quiche, that lasted for about a hour. 🙂 Yum…

After Karl and Gabi did some stuff for school, and I chatted with library folks it was time for the Cubs Game. we picked Ed up at his hospital and then headed out to HoHoKam park. Beer, Brats, and Baseball, fun fun fun!. I definitely a good time, considering I’m not a big sports fan. Of all the sports out there though baseball is probably my favorite. While there they announced that the temperature there was a 78, while back in Chicago it was a nice 28. Heheheheh, 50 degrees difference. The Cubs won. Woohooo!
After the game we came back home and had some of Ed’s homemade sausages. WOW! Yummmmmy


Arizona – Day 4 (The Dinner)

Day 4, Wednesday, had very little going on. We spent the day just lounging around mostly. Our sole responsibility for the day was to make potato salad for dinner.  Well come on, Karl, Gabi and I, just make potato salad.. YEAH RIGHT!

Before we were done we had potato salad, sauteed mushrooms, a romaine salad,  a fruit salad, and Ribs.    This we had all served and the table all set out on the Patio before Ed and Jane got home.   When Ed got home he asked how our day went, we said “Fine, uneventful”  He then asked about the potato salad and we all responded with various levels of shock and embarrassment, and apologized for forgetting.  “Oh well, well I guess I should start the ribs at least.” At this point he lifted the lid off the rib pot and found it was empty.  Gabi chimed in with, “Oh… Uhhh… we had those for lunch, sorry…”.  Ed seemed dissapointed, but graciously said, “Oh well, I guess we go out for dinner.”  At that point we figured he had had enough torture, and pointed him to the patio where the full dinner was ready.

We then let him repeat the gag on his wife when she got home.

Dinner was a hit, and everyone enjoyed themselves. We did run into one problem while cooking.  Karl and I had a hard time getting the grill lit.  Once it was lit it cooked for about 5 minutes and then went out.  I rummaged around a bit and found that the propane tank was empty, so I swapped it out and all was well.  Grills light so much better when they actually have gas. 🙂
