Getting ready for the weekend.. yay

Busy working on getting ready for the family reunion coming up starting next Thursday night with a kickoff cook out at our house YAY.. Hamburgers, Hotdogs,  Tortellini Salad , slaw, watermelon, condiments,  beer , soda, water, cookies,  cakes, chips, a few surprises I do not even know about  yet... and over 40 people hanging out and having fun.. We will progress to the hotel on Friday day.. hang out in the hospitality room, then a champagne cocktail hour with all types of flavored champagne ( beats me.. never heard of that before.. should be interesting if you like champagne)  then onto a southern style buffet, then a family history update and how we all came to be via our ancestors to West Blocton, Alabama and migrate to Bham and parts all over the world... Saturday  we are helping host the continental style breakfast at the hotel, with a hearty supply of big muffins, little muffins, croissants,  danish, juice , coffee,  bagels, salmon spread, cream cheese, and butter. and some other assorted surprises.. then folks go on whatever trip they have signed up on.. then we meet back up for   photos , drinks, and a seated dinner , dancing with some assorted surprises... followed by more hospitality room and finally wrapping the reunion up on Sunday morning with a big brunch and family meeting.. and deciding who will host the next reunion in 2 years.. they are hosted every 2 years in various parts of the country .. ending up back in Alabama about every 5th or 6th one.. we expect around 120 people.. so it should be fun.. I kinda chuckle to myself for this is only 1/4th of my family that does this... Looking forward to it..
Getting ready to work on dinner.. Gagutz ( zuchini, tomatos, onions, peppers, simmered together for a couple hours and sprinkled with  fresh Romano Cheese yum...)  and grilled boneless skinless chicken .. Yum
Have a  great weekend~
