I've been laboring over this crazy menu for the past 3 days. We are having guests for the holidays and it is always so hard to meet everyone's wants/needs/likes for food - especially during the holidays.
But, I think I've done it. Yay!
I used a variety of food blogs, cookbooks, and old-standbys. See menus below...and if you have any new ones to share, please do! I love new recipes!
Okay, I haven't posted in the longest time. I have so much to talk about...recent family losses, new job, selling our house, etc.
But, I'm really not emotionally prepared to talk about any of those things :)
Instead, I'll talk about what I'm going to get the boys for their birthdays.
Baby R turns 4 on November 13th. I bought him a leather jacket from Target - he wanted a "brown jacket." He's such a little fashionista! I am also buying him "Shark in the Dark." They listen to this at school and he recites it at home (scary voice and all!). Unfortunately, the audio CD isn't available anymore through amazon. Darn it!
Baby D turns 2 on October 29th and I'm torn between books and toys for him. He really loves books so that seems like the better plan! I'm going to keep searching for him.
My other item - for me and others! - is that I need to buy empty bottles with screw tops or corks. I'm making limoncello and orangecello in the basement. And I need to bottle it, with a simple syrup, and give them away as gifts this Christmas. I'm so excited about these!
Okay, so I've always been the good girl. I was always home by curfew (really I only went out a handful of times), I never smoked cigarettes...I was kinda dweeby!
But, now I'm almost 32...and I wanna do something bad. I want to get in trouble!!!
I want to jump into my shopping cart at the supermarket and sail down the aisles. I want to stand up and sing a dirty song in the middle of a meeting. I want to sneak candy into a movie theatre...just because they say I can't. I want to cut the tags off my mattress. I want to eat raw cookie dough; lots of it!
I want to have a drink before 5pm. I want to eat dessert before dinner, and sometimes I want to tell the kids, "Forget those veggies. Let's have banana splits!"
I want to walk around in 4-inch heels and refer to them as my "hooker shoes." I want to ALWAYS cut the crusts from my PB&Js...and be proud of it!
I want to put a huge layer of butter on my toast in the mornings, and grin while I eat it because I know how bad it is for me.
I want to give crude comebacks to evil people. "Suck it!"
What is going on??? I've never been like this before.
