Well, I did it again. I went to the grocery store the day before a big holiday and I can only liken it to a group of starving, rogue sharks circling a harpooned seal. And that was just the parking lot.
I made it out alive – but just barely.
Luckily, after work I did something that everyone should do during the holidays: kicked off my shoes, hung out with a good friend and talked and talked. In this frenzy of the holidays, sometimes you just gotta sit back and remember why you’re here – to have friends and drink beer. 😉
I have a pretty good menu for our holiday guests, who are arriving tomorrow: banana bread and blueberry bread; spinach quiche; pumpkin pancakes; chicken enchilada casserole; posole; chinese takeout (family tradition) and a bunch of yummy little appetizers to make them forget I’m not actually serving three meals a day. Clever, me.
And I’m gonna cut it short tonight because I’ve got bread baking, maids a-milking and geese a-laying. (That last statement may or may not have been full of lies.)
I’m hoping to squeeze in a quick run and some crunches tomorrow between cleaning and cooking. (gah, I sound like a woman!)
