Every three or four months our Mahj group – made up of six very good friends (alternatively known as “The OMs” for original Mahjettes…or “Mahj Chicks” by Jim) – take off for parts unknown. Well, not really unknown…we have gone to S’s home in Sag Harbor, K’s home in Buck Hill, a home in Old Chatham and most recently, a home belonging to X’s relative in upstate New York.We spend three days and two nights really never leaving the host’s home, just playing Mahj from early, early morning to late, late night and cooking up a storm.
We arrive! All the OM’s but me – I’m taking the picture!
Just a couple of pieces of luggage for our two-night stay…
Quickly unpacking all the goodies for great meals…
Just a few of the Mahj games we brought along for the three days.
J and S start setting up the moment we arrive.
Play has begun.
J must have lost that hand as she is already dropping her losings into our “Ready! Set! Mahj On!” bank, courtesy of Madame Mahj .
A simple lunch courtesy of K — yum!
Lunch is over and J is in the kitchen making sure everything is cleaned up.
Still playing late into the night (early morning?!).
Next morning there are Banana Crunch Muffins, hot out of the oven, recipe courtesy of Barefoot Contessa.
