Saturday's Stupid Saying

Currently Reading: Corrected my oversight and bought Kama Sutra Lovers by Anny Cook. And while I was over there, I saw this cover for another book of hers. My mouse clicked on it of its own accord and Bishop demanded I not delete him from the cart. So yeah, I bought Love Never Ending! Shhh...don't tell hubby...

(It is Saturday, right? Just kidding...)
Thought this was appropriate, as tomorrow's the Super Bowl...

Feast of the Superb Owl
-church bulletin listing, which should have said 'Feast of the Super Bowl'

We're doing something a little different tomorrow. Instead of cooking a fantasic meal with several appetizers and desserts, we're doing Mexican Night. Don't choke, Regina! My hubby loves authentic Mexican (how he ended up marrying me with my wimpy palate is astonishing!), and as our friends are transplants from Houston, he's making homemade guacamole (using D's recipe) and we're serving nachos, tacos, and my D's favorite spicy bean dip. I'll be eating the taco meat with lots of sour cream, or fixing my tame cheese nachos. And yes, I'll make my sugar cookie decorated with chocolate icing and 'AVS' or 'SVA' in Red and Yellow. So come on over and join us tomorrow night!

Remember yesterday I said I dreamed my off the clock characters needed a shot in the arm? I read it over and decided not to rip it apart after all. But what I DID do was speed up the action. After I get it written, THEN I'll go back and ruthlessly make some changes. I did write 4 pages yesterday, so I'm pretty proud of myself.

"But...There's Been No School!"
The stomach flu has made its way through my kids this week. It hit K on Tues, S yesterday morning, and W last night. I just hope neither myself nor D catch it! Just wanted to give you a head's up in case I disappear for a day next week.

Oooooh, Thank you!!! Hope you'll enjoy both of them very much!

Have a great weekend!

You, my dear, are a complete WIMP. TAME NACHOS???? The other night I made chili which was served with fritos scoops, shredded cheese and slices of jalapeno pepper. Jalapeno pepper, Molly! Yes, we are TOUGH down here.

Your superbowl party sounds like a blast!

BTW...just TEASING you! You know I love to do that.

I know, I know. My dad had me try some spicy mustard at a Chinese restaurant when I was in my teens...I drank ALL the water on the table and STILL needed more!

Chili? An ex-boyfriend's mom 'tamed' it down one night, and it was still waaaaay too hot for me, even though everyone else was dumping more chili powder in their bowls. My 'perfect' chili? Spaghetti sauce with meat:)

Yup...wimpy taste buds up here...and I still have curly hair, ha ha:)

Fingers crossed the flu bug passes you by....

I've got wimpy taste buds, too. A friend of mine says I have "baby-mouth" and I tend to agree.

So sorry about the stomach flu - we had that last week and it sucked!
