Tell ya what, Amber, I have shrimp and Asti Spumante...which is the same as champagne, only from Italy. Is that good enough for a massage, or do I need to bring strawberries and orange juice for a mimosa?

By the way, if you all had been in my hot tub about 10 years ago, I'd have already served you hors d'ouevres, Margaritas, Fever Water, Jello Shots, and fruit from "The Whale", and when you got out you'd be looking at smoked pork and turkey, all the sides, and lots of desserts.

Unfortunately, the hot tub and I are both slightly the worse for wear now. But there is still fun to be had at our house.
You all bring a dish, and be prepared to pitch in.

Sounds good to me constance. I think it was half baked that wanted the shrimp and champagne, with oj and berries, and a massage. I like your menu idea though! But since this is mudbugs hot tub, we have all been bringing a dish and have the cabana guys helping out Watch out for those lake guys though!

You mean the 'loony lake guys' ? I'm feeling better already and I think that we all could surprise Mudbug by bringing appys and special cocktails....bless her heart, it's so sweet of her to share the hot tub!

I have an idea! Let's arrange a cooking lesson with Anthony Bourdain. I met him at a book signing and I tell you what...........he oozes sex appeal. Gives me HOT cold chills just thinking about him. Whoop da de do daw!

Amber, I don't give a flying fig about movie stars or rock stars....no celebrity ever turned me on. UNTIL I met Anthony Bourdain.

He's got something. I don't know what 'it' is but he has 'it'.

Over at the lake, we've got more of it. And what do you want to learn how to cook? I can taylor my lessons to whatever you are interested in, form virtually any kind of food, to building your own micro-light aircraft. And if I don't personally know how to make the dish you're looking for, and yes, there are a few things I don't know how to cook, then we have several guys here who can fill in. Between us, there are few things we can't expertly make, including ice-cold water ballons and a launcher capable of tossing them accross the lake with pin-point accuracy.

But we're past that. We couldn't hardly get a rise out of you pampered ladies. But we could compare notes about cooking, or whatever else you might find interesting. And we'd be more fun than a celebrity chef anyday, right boys!

Half Baked, I completely understand - about the 'it' thing.
PS - I just got a memo - Mr. Bourdain will be here momentarily. *sigh*

I've asked if he can teach us foods from all the many countries he's visited. However, I'm hoping he begins with some dessert. I'm needing sugar!
PS - did you see my hair? Pds did a great job!

hey halfbaked, glad you are feeling better.....and since I do not watch tv, I've haven't a clue who any of these names are on this and other threads . But with all the time I save not being in front of the tube, you should see what all I have cooked up....I'm bringing warm chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal and walnuts and lotsa cold milk, some fresh cheeses flavored to your specifications and a tomato and chicken salad. I'm hoping you all can fill in with some adult beverages . This has been so nice, thanks mudbug, I hope we haven't been too much of a bother. Looks like we did a good job with the fence, can't even see the built in balloon catcher . Maybe we can cruise over to Connie's next?
