Bunco Babes and Sliders

Hello, everyone... 
Glad to see you. Hope your week is going good.

I belong to a monthly BUNCO group called
and we have so much fun, I could just spit.

Lots of laughing, eating, and laughing some more....
I do love my Bunco Babes ladies.

The young lady here with me is KANDICE and she is the "baby of the group".

 Her mother is ONE OF US and we love having YOUNG BLOOD to keep us all in check.

Kandice had everything so nice for us .......

This is Mary and I think she has had a BUNCO every game we've ever played and we are  into our 2nd year.

Almost every photo I have of her, she is wearing one of those BLING NECKLACES.  :>)
Kandace had the tables set up sooo cute.
I am in love with ZEBRA and TURQUOISE....

BRIGHT COLORS to match our
there's MONEY to be won....
WOO HOO.....

 The pretty lady in yellow (that's me, grinning like a possum)
is my friend, MARTHA,
that's been fighting colon cancer for almost a year.

She just got a MAGNIFICENT report that her cancer is GONE.
All the GLORY goes to GOD.

Martha is still very thin....and weak....and pale....but.....
we're gonna work on all of those.

She lost all her pretty silver hair and bought a GORGEOUS BLONDE wig...She said, "by golly, if I HAVE to wear a wig, I decided to be BLONDE instead of WHITE"......

hahhaa...I don't blame you one single bit, Martha.

She and the other Martha with her in this photo,  have also had breast cancer but both kicked it's butt to the curb.....
We are all so thankful.

THIS is the reason we MUST keep fighting Breast Cancer...!!
 "WHAT HAPPENS at BUNCO.....stays at  BUNCO"
hahhhaaa....gotta love it.

with the most Buncos in the game .

Just look at all that BLING hanging around her neck....
FOUR... win MONEY for the most Buncos.

Earlene and I and Martha went to high school together.
One of our sweet ladies made these little
and they are so delicious that I googled the recipe
so that YOU could try them, too.


2 pkg hawaiian sweet dinner rolls
1 pkg deli sandwich ham
12 slice swiss cheese
1/2 c butter, melted
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp brown or dijon mustard
1 tsp onion powder


Slice top from rolls and place bottoms in baking pan. Layer ham and cheese on rolls. Replace tops. Combine butter,poppy seeds,mustard,Worcestershire, and onion powder and mix well. Drizzle over rolls. Refrigerate until butter is firm or overnight. Cover with foil and bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until cheese melts. Uncover and cook for 2 additional minutes. Serve warm or cold.
  Our lady added a tiny bit of sugar to the dressing for these little delectables...
ALSO, she added the dressing to the INSIDE of the little rolls, with a tad bit
on the tops.

I am wondering if one could use that delicious POPPY SEED DRESSING....????
...wonder why not...?

Love to all,

Hi BJ! You know I love Bunco too. It has really helped me to meet the neighbors in our new neighborhood. So glad Martha is getting better. :)

Terra said...

How sweet your two friends are in good health. Now I need to look up bunco to see how to play it, my friend invited me to try it.

kitty said...

You babes must have the most fun!!! I loved seeing photos of all your friends and the wonderful cancer- fighting stories. Thanks for sharing the delicious recipe, too.

Looks like you all have a blast BJ! Sounds like a fun group and those sliders look amazing! I'd have a couple for breakfast right now-love the poppy seeds:@)

Happy Bunco Times!!!

Best, to all your sweet friends.

Wishing you a lovely Midsummer's Eve!!!


It looks like all you and your friends are having a grand happy time playing Bunco.. and simply being together. I can honestly say I have NOT heard of this game. I must have a look on the internet to find out about it. Hugs Judy

Susan K said...

So happy and thankful for your friend Martha's victory over colon cancer! I have had a soft spot in my heart for people with colon cancer since back in 1980 when my own father lost his battle with colon cancer at the young age of 55... so much good research since then... have to keep the funding going so one day cancer will be an obsolete word! Have a great weekend BJ! love, Suzy from Pennsylvania

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

It sounds like you all have a fabulous time! Glad to hear that your friend had a great report! Those sliders looks delicious!

Balisha said...

We used to play bunco at wedding and baby showers. So glad to hear that so many are playing it..just for fun. You gals sure know how to throw a party.

Madeline's Album said...

You all sound like a wonderful group when you get together. Glad to hear about the ladies that overcame the cancer scare. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Debbie said...

It all looks wonderful to me, and I am so proud of God and the gals for kicking breast cancer's butt.

Is the new house very far from the bunco group? (If you've said, forgive me. I really AM blonde and threrefore prone to forgetfulness.)

Vee said...

It's so much fun for me seeing all the fun you gals have. What a support group! Better than many where one sits around singing the blues. Love it!

Mecky said...

It looks like you girls have a blast!
Praise the Lord that the cancer is gone! I am so happy for them!

bj said...

ANYway, thank you very much.

That looks to be a lot of fun BJ! I am glad you ladies take the time to have this fun together!

Peggy Jones said...

Great pic BJ. So good to see your smiling face. I played BUNCO for years and not into it now. Just might look up a group and start again. It is definitely fun.

Patti said...

Back in my homeschooling days (my kids have both finished high school), I was part of a homeschool moms Bunco group. It was always loads of fun.

Those sandwiches look delicious. I think I have something like them "pinned" on my Pinterest page. I've never made them, but based on your photos, I'm thinking it's high-time I did.

Have a great day,

Thank you, dear one, for sharing your sweet Bunco Babes!!!
I adore that you have friends from High Scholl living close by and still get together for an evening of laughter and fun!!!
Let those dice roll. . .

TexWisGirl said...

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I played bunco for years when my kids were babies...I needed that night out! It is so fun and so easy you can talk at the same time. Yours looks a little fancier than ours was...we just had dessert! I'm glad your friend is doing well. It looks like a nice group of ladies.

Marydon said...

Never heard of bunco before ... but it looks like you are all having a grand time.

Always good news to know that the 'C' is licked, she looks lovely. Best of luck to your friend ... being a blonde can be fun at any age.

the go food looks absolutely deelish.

Love your header, TY for the nice compliment. You are a fav of mine, BJ.

I miss belonging to a bunco group. I haven't heard of any around in our area for a long time.
It looks like you have a wonderful time and that recipe sounds delicious and easy.

Jann Olson said...
