Thank you, Tom and Linda for a great dinner! The food, wine and company were outstanding.
 

Piña Colada Rice Recipe

3 cups chicken stock
2 cups pineapple juice
1 cup coconut milk
1 stick butter
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 2/3 cups uncooked rice
1 or 2 cans finely diced water chestnuts, drained
1/2 slivered almonds
3-4 green onions, finely sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
 

In large stockpot with a lid, bring first 5 ingredients to a boil on high, add rice, stir for one minute, cover and reduce heat to low. Let cook 20 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes, then “fluff” with fork. Rice will appear to be very sticky at first. Stir in remaining ingredients, mixing well. Rice will separate some and be less sticky as soon as it cools. Serve warm.

Go Biggs or go home!

Brewed in Percolator

Dennis’s toy Jag

Beautiful car for a young guy.
Old man ball that hangs from the ceiling to stop him
from running into the wall
– priceless.

Welcome to the Vine Dawgs, Richard!

Did Dennis explain to you that the “new guy” buys the shirts?

It’s always, it was a pleasure to see Amy. We got to meet their son and his girlfriend. Dennis’s son gets his good looks from Amy and his wit from Dennis. He was a chip off the old block! Thanks Dennis for a great evening! It was good to meet Dennis’s friend Richard Tripp. Tell Richard, that when Rodney and Tom S are with us, we’re total party animals! At least until 9-9:30 PM.
