Saturday in Kingman

We woke up Saturday morning and just took it easy getting around.  We got our showers and I sat down to write Friday's blog while Mac sat and watched TV.

It was really nice not having to rush around on a tight schedule. We lounged around and then decided to eat a sandwich before heading over to Teri & Lynnies. Lynnie was going to cook "Yard Tacos" for supper. We have never had those before so we were very curious about what they were. We got over there about 2:00 and sat around and visited most of the afternoon.

Late afternoon, Teri & I headed to the grocery store for all the ingredients for the Tacos. Wow these things have about everything but the kitchen sink...just kidding. We purchased ground beef, breakfast sausage, pork, bacon, onions, green peppers, potatoes, tortillas, shredded cheese and salsa. They already had the Chorizo, tomatoes, and sour cream.

When we got back to the house we started chopping all the veggies and slicing the pork tenderloin. Lynnie went out to the garage and got the large disc cleaned and on the cooker to heat up. Ok, now here is where it gets tricky..hope I remember what all is in these "Yard Tacos"

Cook the bacon & then take out for later...only need the bacon grease. Now put in the following ingredients in this order..I hope:

Pork, Ground Beef, Cubed Potatoes, Breakfast Sausage, Chorizo, sliced Green Peppers, quartered Onions, Taco Seasoning and then chunks of Tomatoes. Serve on flour  and corn tortillas. Add sour cream and Shredded Cheese and Salsa. I think there must have been enough food for 20 people! They were very good!

Didn't get a photo of Jaden or Kyle for some

Teri and I took a ride around town because I wanted to take some photos of the quirky side of Kingman. Here is a photo of some Flamingos that are in someone's yard. These are made out of metal and are about 6' -7' tall!

The other photos I wanted to take are of someones front yard. They carve all kinds of items...see for yourself:

After taking the photos we headed back to Teri's and spent the rest of the evening visiting and Teri & I made a couple of necklaces for work. We left about midnight and came back to the RV to get some sleep since Sunday would be a travel day to go to Dana and Russell's for a few days.

We have had a great few days here with the kids and look forward to doing it more often now that we are both retired.

Hugs to everyone!
