Shiny Toes & Tacos | The Indiantown Party Posse

Sometimes, people come up to me with a worried expression and say something like:
"You poor thing, all on your lonesome on your boat, while Scott's away. Don't you get bored?"
Uh, no. It's impossible to be bored when you have the  >>Indiantown Party Posse<< constantly planning new get-togethers, like our New Year's Eve boat and camper crawl.
 
It usually starts when someone posts pictures of a delicious-looking dish, followed by a flurry of messages on Facebook, which evolves into a plan which involves getting together either at the marina and cooking something fabulous (like a low country boil or fish tacos) or heading to the local pub for Taco Tuesday or Wing Wednesday.

Sometimes, it starts when two people talk about going to get mani-pedis which then morphs into an afternoon girls get-together, followed by a van party and Taco Tuesday with the blokes.

Look, shiny toes.


Of course, no girls get-together is complete without sugary treats - like this "fugly" toffee.


Or bubbles and chocolate wine. Yes, you read that right - chocolate wine. I had no idea such a thing existed. Whoever invented that deserves some sort of medal.


Of course, sometimes these get-togethers are bittersweet when we end up saying goodbye to some of the members of the >>Indiantown Party Posse<< as they head off to new adventures. That's part and parcel of a nomadic lifestyle - cool people are constantly coming in and out of your life.

But, the good news is that we're constantly recruiting new members for the posse, provided they can answer one important question:
"Do you like moose balls?"
Don't worry, they're not what you think they are. Unless, you're imagining something with Bailey's in it. Probably the most popular item ever served at the >>Indiantown Party Posse<< get-togethers.

Have you ever had a moose ball or chocolate wine? What's your idea of a good get-together with friends?

Thanks for stopping by our blog - we love it when people come visit! We're also on Facebook - pop by and say hi!

  1. Sounds like a get together almost every day.
    Never had moose balls though.

    1. It's probably a good thing that it's not a daily thing. I've already gained several pesky pounds as a result of these gatherings :-)

  2. Never had moose balls or chocolate wine. Not sure about the balls but I definitely would be trying the wine!

    1. I think you might like the moose balls, especially after a glass of the chocolate wine.

  3. That sounds like tons of fun! I've not heard of moose balls, but I have heard of Rocky Mountain Oysters! Hehehe.

    1. Thankfully, they bear no resemblance to Rocky Mountain Oysters at all. Those sound gross, whereas Moose Balls are scrumptious.

  4. I drank chocolate wine once, but it proved too rich. Hope that doesn't get me into trouble. ~grin~ I'm struggling against being a recluse, my favorite get together being with my fictional characters. Glad you liked my quote for the day. Brainy Quotes is neat. I found it by accident but great minds think alike, right?

    1. I'm usually quite a recluse too, but this is a great group that is actually full of quite a number of introverts.

    2. Cool! Once a year some writers I know from around the USA get together and when I've attended they were great, understanding when I slipped off to be alone once or twice.

  5. Indiantown Party Posse sounds like a fun group. Moose balls...can't say I've heard of them and can't say I'll ever try them. I'm a vegetarian. lol

  6. That would be a fun posse. Someone painting my toenails would be difficult though - most are so tiny, there's no room for paint.

  7. I'd try both, but boaters roll that way.

    Have a fabulous day, Ellen. ♥

  8. I can see the positives and negatives of a nomadic life. I do like the shiny toes. They'd be a hit at any party.

    1. Yes, there are real pros and cons. But as long as the pros outweigh the cons, it's all good.

  9. I haven’t tried moose balls or chocolate wine - and I might politely decline both!

  10. I haven't had chocolate wine, or mooseballs, but I had a chocolate martini once. It was delicious! I would probably try either one, given that you think they are delicious.

  11. Chocolate wine wine doesn’t sound as good as a chocolate stout. The moose balls sound good but Baileys can improve most things

    1. Chocolate stout is nice, but probably doesn't go as well with moose balls :-)

  12. Um, no, I can't say that I've ever tried moose balls. (Reminds me of the old SNL skit about Schweddy Balls, though. If you've never seen it, check it out...)

    I tried a sip of chocolate wine and didn't care for it. Could have been that particular brand, though, What I DO love is chocolate liqueur. Our older son gave me some Godiva, which I liked, but I've since switched to Marie Brizard's Chocolat Royal. Costs a bit less, and it's really YUM!!!

    1. I'll have to check out that SNL skit. Godiva liqueur sounds amazing!

  13. I can't say I've had either. Probably the closest was Kalua and Bailey's Cream back when I used to drink.

    1. I wonder what the moose balls would be like with Kalua in them? Maybe an idea for our next party.

  14. Well, I don’t know what moose balls look like or are made of around Indiantown, but here in Finland our diet is heavily based on many things moose and reindeer. Moose balls included - but don’t worry, they’re not what you think they are ;)

    1. I wonder what your moose balls taste like? They could probably use some Bailey's :-)

  15. Oh, that sounds like a lot of fun. It's good you have some great people around to pass the time with.

    1. There are some amazing people here. So much fun. Of course, I probably need to go on a diet and detox after spending so much time with them :-)
