This happened last night:
The husband and I went to see Iron Maiden. The show was all that I had hoped for. Bruce’s voice was outstanding, the pyrotechnics did not disappoint, and the Eddie set changes were awesome! The only let down was that they did not play “Hallowed Be Thy Name”. Overall, great show! Husby called it the Iron Maiden ”bucket list” tour; I like to think of it as one of my bucket list items. Check!
I do wish that I was old enough to see them when they were a younger band, like, back in the 80′s. Either way, I’m really glad I got to see them at all.
Another highlight of the night was hanging out with these guys:
Coincidentally, my (ex-boy)friend and his wife were making a vacation stop in my town. Aaaand, it just so happens that they also had tickets to the show. We had a very brief tailgate and a great time. It was nice to catch up and meet his Mrs. She is a super cool girl! I mean, she DIYed Iron Maiden nail art! They are such a lovely couple. I hope this is the beginning of a new friendship.
Needless to say, today will be a day of recuperation.
Breakfast was not a “clean” meal; but it sure was tasty!
Pimento Cheese, fried egg, and bacon sandwich!
Self explanatory; but I would highly recommend making your own Pimento Cheese spread or use a good brand like “Ruth’s”.
Pimento Cheese Recipe:
- 1/2 lb extra-sharp Vermont white Cheddar
- 1/2 lb extra-sharp aged New York (orange) Cheddar
- 1 (7-oz) jar pimentos, drained and finely chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- cayenne to taste
- 2/3 cup mayonnaise
Grate the cheeses. Mix all of the ingredients together. Chill.
