Ready for the weekend!
I think I'm going to test a new recipe today. If it works out, I'll be bringing it to you next week. If it doesn't, you'll never hear about it. I keed...you'll hear about it eventually. Like you'll hear about the big fat fail I had the other day as I begin to prepare for the 12 Days of Treats for this year! That's right y'all, I'll be whippin' up another batch of goodies to pass along for your cookie swaps/exchanges, holiday gatherings, office parties or for your husband to toss at you in desperation when PMS kicks in. I'm very excited! I'm also thinking of jumping into yeasted items which is highly intimidating and I'm skeered. I've gotta just do it and stop being a wuss.
We went out to a family dinner last night and I ordered cedar plank tilapia and holy moly did they ruin it with a TON of salty seasoning. It was barely edible. My rings won't move so today I'll be drowning myself in water praying you won't have to tie me down like a Macy's balloon. I don't get why restaurants think that to make a dish flavorful it means putting so much salt on it that all moisture is pulled out and it could double as a salt lick. I could've hung it from a tree and attracted deer. On the upside, I got to spend more time with family and they all at one point or another told me what a great time they had at the Mr's party or how they liked this or that. THAT is what makes all of the time and yes, frustration (stupid cake balls) worth the effort because you have a time people remember and appreciate.
I wish I had a snazzy picture for you to draw you in and make my post all interesting but I'm pooped. Wait, let me make one...
Thanks so much for reading! You have no idea what your coming here every day (or when you can) means to me! The fact that people actually give a poo about anything I might have to say still boggles my mind especially with my propensity for run on sentences and overuse of ellipsis marks. I can't thank you enough for being the awesome people you are because without you there would just be me...sitting here...talking to myself...and that can only last so long. (Or until I begin to comment on my own posts telling me how witty and fabulous I am.)
Happy Aloha Friday!
