Catered Meals

Ahh, I don’t have to cook for a week!!! The frac company is providing catered meals all week for their workers.  When the caterer came in to “audition” with sample meals I joked with him that if he got the contract he’d have to remember to bring in a couple meals for Jim and I.  Well he did. 

Last night was the first night and he delivered a two meals with two smoked pull pork sandwiches, grilled corn cut off the cob and potato salad.  His catering kitchen is in from San Antonio and he got here about 11 p.m. and served 65 meals.  Juan brought our meals when he left at 1:30 a.m. so it was right at my “lunch” time, so it worked out very good, and the meal was very tasty.

Tonight Juan is bringing in grilled pork loin wrapped in bacon….mmmmmmm…can’t wait!

Weather really changed today, windy, humid, clammy and it is raining to boot.  Paperwork west from mist so I took a clear report cover and put it over the sheets of paper to protect them.  I’m thinking of buying a digital voice recorder to use outside when it rains; many gate guards have recommended them.  I did get to use my new leopard print vinyl boots and they worked well.  These caliche roads are oozing mud when it rains.  Hope it clears up soon as we are so tired of this lousy weather.

Remember, you are loved


  1. Glad you are getting hot meals to help during this busy time. Hang in there. You guys can do it ! Hugs to you both.

  2. Sounds like you might need to get some pallets to put down so you can walk around your trailer to keep out of the mud. The digital recorder sound like a real good idea if you ask me. Sure does sound like you and Jim will be eating good for the next week.

  3. Lousy weather here in Houston too. I believe it has been the wettest February that I can remember in the last 7 years. I guess it was only fitting after the drought of last winter and summer.

    I am looking forward to getting back to Colorado. I won't miss getting to visit with you guys this year! Last year was sort of screwed up, what with the accident and all.

    Howdy B&J,
    I got behind on my blog-reading,so, you may not see these next few, but I'll send them anyway!!
    Y'all are really taken care of, electricity, water, dump-man, AND NOW CATERED MEALS..(not to say yours aren't superb) Yeah, caliche is dusty or slick muddy, but it doesn't add inches to your highth like BLACK GUMBO and wipes right off!!
    Ya'all don't have to go back to the Colorado this summer, just hang out down here and open gates.. You got to make the 'rounds' last fall
    and found out how expensive it is to travel!!!
    Remember y'all are thought about every day!!
