Yesterday was a great Mah Jongg day for the OMs. We invited L to join us and learn how to play the game. We were truly impressed with how fast she picked it all up. A future member of the OMs?
Lunch was delicious and tomorrow I will post the recipes. The table looked pretty and the Curried Chicken Salad and Arugula and Watermelon Salad were a hit with everyone. Big pieces of naan completed everyone’s plate.
As soon as we were finished with lunch we started our game play. Here are some of the hands that were played:Both J and I had good luck today – I had three Mah Jongg’s and J had four! As I have said before, I am happy when I have Mah Jongg just once so this was really a great day!
Time for dessert: really sweet and delicious blueberries and strawberries with a raspberry sauce and accompanied by perfect biscotti from Grace’s Marketplace.
This hand was coming together until I called for a discarded 8 Crak and exposed it…I forgot I was playing a concealed hand! Fortunately I was able to find another hand in the 2468 group that also used 888. This is such a great hand – and a difficult one, as well – under the Consecutive Run. K did a great job pulling this off!
Another Consecutive Run hand! And, thanks to S1 who exchanged two Jokers for two 9 Dots – at the same time! – my hand was Jokerless! That was very exciting!Last hand of the day and J declares Mah Jongg! We played for over 6 hours today – and probably could have gone on for more if other plans didn’t get in the way!
