Derby Day

With all this talk of swine,who would have thought our betting minds should have harkened back to the avian side of things today? Mine That Bird won the derby and I am pretty sure there are a few richer folks who placed bets thinking he would win when pigs fly!I was cooking up a storm for a Derby party and sent Leif out to buy me a hat today. He hit the stores and came back with a hat I really loved. I have NO IDEA where I will ever wear it again unless I fall in with a group of church going women, but for the day I thought it was perfect. Except here is the thing...no-one embraces a theme like Leif and me (read here if you doubt) and we were by far the most derbyist duo at the party. And you can't fake a lot when you wear a hat as big as I did.
We had a great time at the party and the food was pretty yummy...I particularly liked my chive biscuits with andouille and mustard and the Burgoo burgers. I loved the company even more! We look forward to having the Pickering clan over for the Preakness and yes, they will all wear hats!
