As the hosts we were responsible for the main dish, so we made buffalo burgers and some great red beans and rice. If you’ve never tasted buffalo, you really have to try it. It’s leaner than beef and much more flavorful. Marianne and Scott brought the appetizers and the red wine, and Cheryl and Keith brought a delicious salad with rice and artichoke hearts and also a great white wine. Dorothy and Tim brought two fabulous freshly made peach pies with some ice cream – my favorite! I don’t know why I’m including the husbands because I’m pretty sure they didn’t have much, if anything to do with it. Guess I’m just nice that way.
Everyone is trying to get four cards that are all the same, while passing the cards around the table as quickly as possible. It gets really funny. As soon as someone has all four cards, they yell “SPOONS” and everyone grabs for the spoons as fast as they can. Whoever doesn’t get a spoon gets a letter.
As soon as someone has enough letters to spell the word SPOONS, then you reduce the number of spoons by one and start another round. By the time you are down to six people and two spoons, it gets pretty intense.
