It's Thanksgiving morning. I am thankful. Our Thanksgiving guests have gone from 30 to 4 in just a week or so. I am okay with that. Good thing I have been so busy and didn't have a chance to go to the market until Tuesday.
I am waiting for my sweet mama to call me back. That is why I am blabbing on my blog. I need to know how she wants the sweet potatoes cooked. I do not eat them, therefore I do not know how to cook them. I mean, yeah, I have recipes galore...but does she want marshmallows on her yams? I dunno! Up until now I thought I would throw them in a dish, pop them in the oven, and serve 'em up warm. Sounds good, huh?! Then I got to thinking about last year. I made some bourbon soaked, brown sugar, slow cooker version and people gobbled them up. Hee, hee...I said gobbled. Anyway, the sooner she calls me back the sooner I can stop making dumb turkey jokes.
What did you have for breakfast today? I thought about some delectable pancakes or an egg fritatta. Then I thought about how I worked all day yesterday, baked all of last night, will be cooking and cleaning for the better half of the day and then decided on some frozen taquitos. Yeah, the same taquitos we made for dinner last night. I popped them in the oven for 15 minutes and we ate them with a bit of sour cream. Eh?! It is fine. They were delicious and best of all.... we used paper plates so NO DISHES! Don't judge me.
Seriously! Who is she talking to? How long does it take to call a girl back. She is about 5 minutes away from making her own stinkin' sweet potatoes. I'm kidding, I'm kidding! Kind of... I have a bit of OCD, I think, and it flusters me to move on to something else when clearly "sweet potatoes" is where I am at on my to-do list. I am uncomfortable with putting them off and moving on. It will mess up my entire flow, not to mention my list.
I'm taking a deep breath and moving on. I have enjoyed these few minutes with ya'll and now I must go. Maybe if I sign .......off.........real.........slow.......she'll........call........back.........just.......in..........time..........
Oh yeah, Happy Thanksgiving ya Jive Turkeys!
