I'm hosting poker night, friday. First time.

I'm gonna hook it up. I'm going to put a brisket on the smoker and a turkey on the rotisserie. I'm not sure what I'll do for sides. I was thinking slaw and baked beans because it's easy. But the fact is, I'm not crazy about baked beans. Like when I was a kid and learned Boston was called "Beantown" for baked beans, I was saddened.

Anyway...should be fun.

You should make that creamy rosemary potato recipe I posted for Ginny. You can prepare it ahead of time and then it just takes an hour in the oven. It would go wonderfully with turkey and brisket. It is easy and feeds lots of people.

I suck at poker but that sounds awesome.

I was ok at older versions of Poker - but the whole hold 'em fad has kinda lost me. I don't want to think that hard when I'm not at work.

Hold 'em is what we play. It's amateurish, but it's a game everyone knows, so... I think it's easy. It's more about trying to tell if the other guy is lying or not.

We also get side games of cribbage going once people start losing. Which seems very sophisticated compared to Hold 'em.

Lord I love Crib.

I need to play more. The Mermaid and I used to keep weekly, monthly and annual tallies. I must admit that while it was very close, she won all the long term tallies. She is great at cards and scrabble. I think she subconciously counts cards.

I also need a local friend with a solid female 4th so we can play Euchre. I LOVE that game.

I love cribbage too. I haven't played in forever.

That beans recipe I posted a few days ago is really good, but I don't exactly have a recipe - Can of Kidney beans, like a half a cup of ketchup, maybe a quarter cup of packed brown sugar, a finely diced small onion, and a finely diced red (or green) bell pepper. Then you put in a casserole and lay bacon over the top and bake it for like 45 minutes. It's crazy good. We call it Pauline's Beans, because the recipe came from Pauline... I don't know what the real name is.
