Late Sunday Brunch, Mr Otter, Amber Benson, Close Call, CM, Nights In and Out, Corned Beef, Presents! CookieDough's night off, And The WIZARD Boys!!!


Mr Otter Stopped by to say Hi to all of you Dutch Harbor Dirt Brunchers. Too bad the lighting and the wind on the water did not allow me to get good Shots. He was really having a fun time out there!!

The Weather is weird today, trying to decide between snow, wind and sunshine. It is leading to some awesome waves and just Beautiful colors of water in the bay.
Cookie Dough and McGuiver are joining us for Brunch today, and Bright and early too at 10am despite last night (more on that later..................)
Willie outdid himself on the salads today, and the strawberry with dried cherries is just too good for words.
And the Return of French Toast, this time Orange-Walnut!
Sesame roasted Black Cod.....................
....and a cajun treat round out the main Dishes.
While Juniors Creme Brules are the centerpiece of the dessert table!
So, what was up this past week?
If you have not ALREADY gotten It I suggest going to the store NOW and pickin up a copy of Amber Benson's new Novel Death's Daughter. Just a fun read, and I even had a Midori Sour last night to toast it! (Thanks Amber!) Check out her blog in my blog links !
Almost got taken down by a Coast Guard plane that decied that it was "too Cool" to follow the rules one day this week.
Got to see the Cornelia Marie Down at the Delta Western Dock, but they snuch out of harbor before Friday 13th hit so no close up shots or pics of the guys.
Went over to Cookies with Alena and Had a great night! Great pizza, good drinks and lots of Fun games. (And ALL of her kids and the other kids that were over are all so good and polite and nice, Something rare these days it seems)
Got a CD from Mama Was........
And did a t-shirt exchange with Kim this week.Too Kewl!!
And Finally the Saga of the Corned Beef Rounded out the Week........
...........but because of the weather could not be flown over to Akutan by "the Goose"........
........so instead is taking the Gyrfalcon Route. (If you do not get it right away April track this guy down!!!)
The weather was weird all last week and this week looks to be cold and Snowy. (Maybe I will get that blizzard I want yet!!)
Toasting Amber with a Midori Sour Last night at the Chartroom before hitting the Unisea Bar
Cookie Dough and Alena, Again dressing like twins!!
And some of the most influential women in Unalaska all sitting around having a grand time!
ANd Here it is, FOR THE FIRST TIME!! Cookie Dough Entering the Unisea Bar!!
And She and Lauri from Life on the Rock (Unalaska one) are he responding to one of the Worst pick up lines ever!!
So, With 4 of Unalaska/Dutch Harbor Bloggers in one place what else could we do but have a round of "Duck Farts"
(Though Alena Had Tequlia.............)
Yeah, they really are that Tasty!!! LOL
Travis from the Wizard doing something I can not really describe in a family friendly blog with Ketchup Bottles....
Lynn from the Wizard with Macguiver. (Look Ma, no more black eye!!)

And Crosby with Me and Cookiedough to Round out the night. I know CD's Friend is now a "fan". We will have to see about CD and Alena! Make sure to check out my blog links at teh side for all these other peoples "take" on last night. It should be fun!!!

Anyway, I better get going, the Weather is being weird and I still want to see the City Council off at the Airport for the big trip to Juneau. (More on that Tomorrow!)

Have a great Sunday everyone!!

Looks like you guys all had a great time and oh, some "rare" CB pics! Cookie Dough - first time in Unisea bar? Oh, why? Please dish! Glad you got your corn beef April. I just love this time of year. I put the corn beef and cabbage in the crock pot and let it cook all day! It's so good! Donna - that was so nice of you to send CB the DVD. There are so many on the forum that have not seen that special. I unfortunately don't have a DVD, but a regular VHS from my relatives in Seattle. Beggars can't be choosers. Enjoy the DVD CB - us NW fans think it's great!

Hey, what's in a midori sour?

cookie dough said...

lol just not my habit to go out, it's all Alena! she's a bad bad influence...although I was told I have a big mouth and she's never taking me anywhere without duct tape...just in case she needs to use it!

Carlisleboy said...

HEy Now CD!!!
According to your Son I am the bad influence.................LOL
and now..........

Carlisleboy said...

.......I am doing my best to mess up comment 13!!
I had a great time everyone! CD, Macgyver and Alena are all great fun!
To the Spring Breakers I say Run!
Kim, The T's fit fine, you would have seen me wearing them in the photos but since we started at the Grand I could not wear that one shirt........
Crosby is still single.......
Midori Sours are just Midori, a squeeze of lime, sours mix and ice. NUMMY though thought with the OJ April.
Did not see Russ Panic.
ANd Hi to Lori. I am doing Ham and cabbage for tuesday in the crock just because I like it better.
OK, Back to work now

Kim said...

When you wear them...have CD take pics for me please!

cookie dough said...

I think you two are double-teaming me! It's both of your faults :)

Carlisleboy said...

With all you do for your kids, your job, and you college and community duties you NEED a night off once in a while just to keep your sanity.
Plus it kept me out of real trouble.......LOL

So CB did you actually hear that from the horse's mouth or is it just speculation? I had been hearing that Crosby had found someone of interest.
