|Walking to the Hawaiian Pool Party....|
|Trena, Diane and Jeanette opted to ride to the ballroom via golf cart. The guys walked.|
|We met some interesting folks and shared so many laughs.|
|Our table - near the middle of the room, offered us the opportunity to meet many folks and share stories.|
|Soon to collect our plates of Hawaiian food.|
|Trena waiting in line for the food while Lucky engages another couple.|
|L-R Diane is engaging Bill (an RVer we met from Eugene, Oregon) as Trena listens in.|
|This fire dancer was clearly an experienced entertainer. He followed the Hula dancers and brought the room to its feet.|
|Sunday afternoon @ Hector and Diane's RV site for a traditional Newfoundland Jiggs dinner|
|The wine is all dressed up.|
2lbs salt meat - or corned beef; 1 medium turnip; 6 large potatoes; 3lb head cabbage; 6 carrots; 2 cups split yellow peas
Soak beef overnight; drain and add fresh water to cover meat. Put split peas in pudding bag and ties - soak overnight. Bring corned beef to a boil for 2 hours - changing the water once or twice to desired taste. Put peas pudding in with the corned beef. Prepare the vegetables and wash in cold water. Add cabbage, turnip and carrots. Let boil together for 30-4o minutes then add potatoes. Cook dumplings on top of the potatoes for the last 7-10 minutes. Put peas pudding in a bowl, mash with butter and pepper.
Serve hot along with fresh baked buns.
|It is a fantastic meal.....and oh so tasty too!|
|Diane and Hector presenting the cabbage, turnip, carrots and potatoes plate.|
|And.....VOILA....a hearty Jiggs meal, prepared and presented in a true Newfoundland tradition.|
|Lucky and Trena drove up for the Jiggs dinner in their beautiful BMW X-4 sports car.|
Jeanette and I are off to Palm Desert, this Monday morning, to meet up with my cousin, Madeleine (from Edmonton, Alberta) for a planned lunch out. We look forward to that.
