It's been a fun day, and I had a great time visiting with my Hasty cousins, who converged on my house for a potluck luncheon. I've been cleaning the house for a week. I decided to do a little every day rather than go crazy the day before. (One of the advantages of working from home.)
I made green bean salad and a fruit salad, and crockpot barbeque. The BBQ came out very tasty. I cooked a 4 lb. pork loin overnight in the crockpot with a bottle of BBQ sauce and a jar of grape jelly and a lot of onion powder. It was very yummy.
My cousins brought squash casserole, potato casserole, more green beans, and pumpkin and gingerbread muffins. Plus wine and bloody Marys. It was truly a feast.
Ironically, it was all my more distant relatives who were able to make it. My first cousins who live in the Atlanta area couldn't make it.
So be it.
My cousin Jan drove up from Albany and I met a cousin I'd never met before who drove down from Jasper, Georgia.
I wish I could say I made pictures but I didn't even think to make photos. Just didn't occur to me. We were too busy visiting and telling stories.
I hope we can do this annually. It's fun to swap stories and information.
