A guest post from a new blogging and tweeting friend of mine…
I am delighted to be over here at The Miss Elaine-ous Life today. I had the pleasure of meeting Elaine at Bloggy Boot Camp put on by The SITS Girls. The biggest thing I remember about Elaine from that day was her huge & contagious smile. The girl has some perty teeth!
Let’s get down to brass tax and talk about what everyone is thinking…THANKSGIVING!! I am so ready to get my eat on, what about you? My sister is hosting this years extravaganza and I am beyond thrilled that it is not at my house. Don’t get me wrong, I adore my family being in my home, but it’s a lot of work y’all!
Yes, I did say y’all.
I am from central Texas and proudly speak Texan! Okay, let’s move on.
I called my sister the other day to ask what my family could bring to contribute.
She said nothing.
I said really?
She said yup.
I said are you sure?
She said yup.
Okay, cool! I am officially off the hook. So what that means to me is I am free to eat & drink to my hearts content. And perhaps pitch in with setting the table (probably have my kids do that) or cleaning the kitchen (probably have my Sweet Man do that). So, I am really looking forward to this Thanksgiving!
I come from the type of family that exchanges emails and phone calls in quantum quantities to discuss what we will be eating.
I love my family!!!
Oh yes, let’s not forget Facebook, I have seen some updates there too. So, here is the run down, ready?
*Garlic Mashed Potatoes
*Garlic Green Beans (I know what you are thinking, & NO we aren’t scared of Vampires)
*Cranberry Sauce (No fancy stuff for us, straight from the can baby!)
*Lime Jello with Grapes & Celery
*Lots of Wine & Beer
*Pumpkin, Apple & Pecan Pie
*Coffee with flavored creamer
Okay, now I am officially dying here. Doesn’t that all sound good? Oh man, I can’t wait for Thanksgiving to get here so I can get stuffed!!
Happy Thanksgiving Y’all!
