Under construction


I admit it, this photo’s from the other day, but the construction continues on the Grady HS football field and accessories (now the field’s totally torn up, and large rolls of sod are adjacent), and it was only this week that it occurred to me to wonder where the team’s playing football this fall.

Not that I really care, mind you….

Speaking of projects, there’s a pan of fresh-made bourbon balls aging; I think they taste better with the new(ish) dark cocoa. That was lotsa fun, Terry!

    How many does the recipe make?

  2. Sammy says:

    I tripled the recipe for my first batch (therefore: 3 boxes wafers and 12 oz pecans), and will make another triple batch since these are our primary holiday “hostess gift.” Of course, it depends on how small/large you make the spheres in determining “how many” you end up with…. PS I refashioned the recipe and will try to add a photo….

    ooh, thanks for the recipe. Bourbon balls are a huge thing in KY, not surprisingly. Did you use Fair Trade cocoa? it’s some good stuff.

  4. Sammy says:

    No, I’m lame. I did Kroger/cheap. Naughty me!

    When our high school redid the track and football field, all of our games were away, even Homecoming. This year, a couple of our “home” games were held at other schools’ fields, i.e. neutral territory. These games were on Saturday, instead of Friday night. I never investigated into the reasons why. When the team made sectionals, (last 2 years, but not this year), our home games were played at a larger school’s field b/c we didn’t have sufficient restroom capacity or something like that. Mind you, we were playing teams from similar sized schools.
