Dart Banquet was a success and a fun time. And looks like a problem with my Google Chrome browser.

Where are we today ?

        Still having an issue with Google Chrome today can't comment. I uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled it, same issue? But I Can use Firefox and all seems to work just fine hmmm. But I fooled with this enough for today. I have things to do, too nice of a day to waste on the computer. Have never had an issue with Chrome since it came out either.

      Cooler nights are nice and bright sunny days about 70 f, nice way to start the day with a long walkabout the resort. After fiddling with the computer for a bit more whipped up lunch then made a double batch of Cranberries with orange zest for the recipe click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar. To go with the turkey for the meal at the clubhouse this evening.
Cranberries beginning
about 10 minutes later, dine, so tasty
        Then around 2 pm Suzie and I go help Melinda for a bit, heat up the Turkey we cooked yesterday and help with the spiral ham so that all with be ready, our work done then we can enjoy the evening. Then helped setup the tables and chairs for 30 plus people.
      Back home for an hour and  back to the clubhouse to glaze the spiral ham and thicken the gravy all set to go by 5 pm and on hold until time to serve.
      People started arriving at 5 as scheduled, bringing their salads and crock pots loaded with tons of food. Socializing and chat as people arrived nice to see everyone here.
       We had a feast that began right on time at 6 pm, and nobody went home hungry, most of the meat for the meal was paid for by the proceeds from darts as well, I believe. Awards were presented and even Suzie and I each went home with $7.00. What a fun time and almost paid back what we spent on darts this season as well.

       We all sure had a feed, with great food from everyone. Nice to just all hang out together for a change. Everyone pitched in to do dishes and clean up done in no time flat,
       Well we were done shortly after 7:30 time to head home and relax for the rest of the evening, its been a couple of busy days for us.
       Fun times here always now looking forward to some quiet days ahead.

  1. Looks like a great meal and a good time was had by all! Perfect!

    1. It was very tasty and nice to see everyone again near the end of the official dart season, unofficial darts now...

  2. My mom used to make the best cranberry sauce. I think your recipe is very close to hers.
    We love pot luck dinners. Everyone always makes the best food!
    Congratulations on your big cash win...hehe

    1. Everyone loves this cranberry sauce and so easy too.
      This was an excellent pot luck one of the best we have gone to.
      $14.00 was a nice win.

  3. Yum those pot luck dinners! Your cranberry sauce brings back sweet memories of Thanksgiving when I was growing up.

    1. It was a great dinner. When I was growing up we had canned cranberries, this is much better!

  4. Always good to see people laughing and having a good time.

  5. What a feast! Looks like a good time for sure.
