Sunday Lunch/Saturday fun

September 23, 2009

Let's begin at the beginning of the weekend. Saturday, the bed finally came in, but with out king size pillow shams seeming to be in existence minus the actual comforter purchase(and I hate comforters) we are shameless until further notice. So here ya go Mother dear, the bed, all put together in our tiny(now really tiny feeling) room.

After the bed came in we headed off with some friends to Longview, TX for the Celebration Fest Tour to see Audio Unplugged{formerly Audio Adrenaline}, Thousand Foot Krutch, Jars of Clay, and some other dude. But on our lovely way we came across a few weird business signs...but the best was the funeral home. Now I've seen horses and cars stuck to the top of a poll, but never a coffin. Hands down weirdest sign ever/so far in my life because I'm sure there are more to come. {click on picture to fully experience the coffin on a stick experience}

Then we arrived at the concert venue...and have any of you heard of a little website called Well you should check it out because this car, had it been in a Walmart parking lot, would have easily gone on that site. Not to mention the gear shift was equally tacky, it was a dice cube thingy.

Now for some concert time...the only band I was excited to see. I love Audio Adrenaline, the other people minus Jars of Clay I have never heard of. The rest of our group had though, TFK ended up being pretty good, but not knowing their songs left me standing their just kind of observing the situation.

After the show the band hung out around their merchandise tables, not something you see much of outside of the small bar traveling bands. Most big name people like Audio Unplugged don't hang around. I was super excited to meet them though considering I've seen them two previous times, as Audio Adrenaline, back in the day when they didn't hang around shows afterward. Funny thing though I told Mark I was so excited to meet him because I hadn't seen them preform since I was in high school and yada yada yada...after the picture they both kept saying bless you and patting me on the head. Weird. Kinda felt like I was meeting the Baptist Youth Group Pope getting blessed and all...all that was missing were a few wafers and some grape juice to make it a full Baptist Pope experience.
Here is our whole group with Thousand Foot Krutch. These guys were really cool, but the singer did kinda irritate me when he preformed with FM Static. Singers mannerisms tend to irritate me to death, especially ones that barely move around. But don't get me started on their guitar and bass players...people in metaly punkish bands should move around.
And for Sunday Lunch...                                                              Natchitoches Meat Pie
two deep dish pie crust
1lb ex lean hamburger
1lb pork sausage
1 white onion
1 bellpepper
red pepper, salt, pepper, and some cajun seasoning to taste
3 cloves of garlic

Brown meat and saute veggies. Place in pie crust, use other pie crust as top. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes...or longer depending on your oven. And make sure to drain the meat well, the pork sausage has a lot of fat and will make the bottom of the pie crust soggy.

And my favorite side.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes
3 large sweet potatoes
3 green onions
garlic, bacon salt, pepper, and whatever other seasonings float your boat. 
Bake at 350 to 375 till the pie is done;)

Well that was our weekend, bed, band, and meat pie. Can't get much better than meat pie.  


  1. i love audio adrenaline, wish i would've known they were gonna be in longview! that is not very far from shreveport at hour maybe? but i'm not too crazy about the new name, they might leave a lot of old fans confused...

    so cool you got to meet them, and weird that they "blessed you" lol. last concert i went to was third day, love them =)

  2. I still listen to Audio's on my iPod in my car and I LOVE natchitoches meat pie. Wish you lived closer :)

  3. This meal looks good. I may have to try this!
