No BLUES here...!

Nope-not here...
although today I took my Valentine
to the
House of Blues Gospel Brunch.
It was raining as we drove
raining as we got there
(hence I completely forgot to take any outside pictures-duh!)
but it was warm insidewith GREAT music by
and the food!!!
We stayed through  two 1/2 sets of music
(they were just finishing one set when we arrived...)
I lost count of cups of coffee I drank
as well as trips to the buffet in the kitchen!
It was a lot of fun.
My pics are not the greatest---
in fact, the best one's hubby took..
(I've got to order the new camera---and then take a class
on how to use it!! and stop being shy about taking photos
in public...)
Hubby's second (?!) helping...
(that's a shrimp he's holding!)

Audience participation---
if you were caught not clapping-you had to sing!
There was some rockin' going on with
This Little Light of Mine...!

see-this is what I mean with my camera---
the room was dark-and the stage lit-
I futzed with this in Picasa to get it this light-but the picture itself is not clear
three little kids were singing and they were good!

The singer in the trio Glory--one keyboardist,
one on woodwinds (I saw a flute and clarinet-still think I heard a sax earlier as well)
they were GOOD!
It takes a lot for me to miss our praise band at church-
but they were worth it!

TO DIE FOR chocolate pie!
Gotta Google and see if I can find the recipe--
it's light like  Cool Whip but a little heavier-
but not as heavy as cheesecake or a pudding!
It was delicious and yes, I ATE THE WHOLE THING!

More pie in the kitchen---from whence mine came!
If I could have snuck one out of there...mmmm...
maybe by tomorrow lunch I'd be hungry enough again to eat!

Peel your own is not my favorite-
but these were easy to peel
(hubby said they slit them to make them so---)
and they were cooked in just enough spice
that I didn't even use the cocktail sauce... I had seconds on these, too!
 That's catfish next to the macaroni and cheese! YUM!
We had a great time--
how can you go wrong with good company,
good food and good GOSPEL music?!

Then we came home
snuggled under warm blankets
and took an almost 2-hour nap
(and woke up surrounded by cats)!
Can't think of a better way to have spent the day!

Now...maybe I will go try and burn off that pie
by doing a little stamping!
Then again....another nap might be good, too!

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
Can't think
