We have a busy weekend on tap. We're trick or treating for sliders and beer at Betty and Tom's house tomorrow night. What a great idea. Saturday, I'm not doing anything that I don't feel like doing. I might stay in my pajamas all day and read my book on the couch. Saturday, Amber's parents are coming to town...Mike and Peggy...so we're going to Patrick's for a celebration. My birthday is tomorrow and Peggy's birthday is Saturday so we'll put a candle in a Schell's Oktoberfest. After dinner, we're going to the Bothy for a concert by Lehto and Wright. From their website:
Lehto and Wright have a sound that is a unique blend of traditional and modern styles. By taking cues from the Irish, English and American folk traditions and interpreting them with contemporary guitar-based arrangements, Lehto and Wright have taken fresh approach to the world of folk and folk rock.
They're great fun.
I made a pork loin for dinner with something called autumn wild rice casserole. It had some interesting ingredients: jalapenos, granny smith apples, and onions. It called for Swiss chard but I've never seen that in a store around here. I checked it out on google and it looks like rhubarb. I must have neglected to read the "how to" part of the recipe because I put it in a baking dish in the oven and it was supposed to be stir-fried. It was still good. We had a hoisin sauce on the pork and it was delicious.
Have a safe and happy holiday.
