Salado Eggfest 2013 Was Great

Judy and I spent St. Patrick's Day Weekend in Salado, Texas at the third annual Salado Eggfest.  We were among long-time friends from the moment we arrived on Friday until we left on Sunday.  And we made new ones each day as the Salado Eggfest progressed from the Meet & Greet on Friday evening, through the Eggfest itself on Saturday, and the After Party on Saturday evening.

Yes, Sunday morning we were ready to return home, tired, sunburned and very happy we came.

We cooked some pork tenderloin and my infamous Magnum Loads for the Eggfest.  There were almost 50 other Cooks who turned out a very wide range of delicious food, some of which could have been created by professional chefs in professional kitchens.  But these were all done on the Big Green Egg under back yard conditions. 

Being St. Patrick's Day Weekend and the fact that Salado is one of the top spots in the state to host an annual Scottish Clan Gathering, Irish Green and Scottish Kilts were appropriate clothing for the day. 

I wore mine, along with my 'accessories' consisting of swords and daggers, and items to reflect both my Irish and Scottish ancestry, as well as my Texas connection. 

We had almost 400 attendees and all were smiling because all had a great time.  Here's the proof...

Next Eggfest: Athens, Texas in three weeks.
