Holiday Helpers

Did your Thanksgiving plans go bust? Big blow up with the in-laws before you decided to hit the road for an awkward & uncomfortable holiday week with them? Or did you just find out you’re hosting a small Friendsgiving and all the turkeys and ginormous hams are gone from the stores? Try Kentucky Legend.  

I call these “fist hams” because they’re like the size of my husband’s fists. They’re pre-cooked and pre-sliced and perfect for a small group of people. They also have a turkey too. Save the drama in the kitchen. I found them in the smoked turkey necks/legs/wings section of the grocery store.
 
For more tips, fun, and maybe even goodies to get you through the day.. come visit me over at Coffee, Cupcakes, and Contemporaries this Thursday.

Long Shot

51s7+AAhf2L

I’m reading Long Shot by Kennedy Ryan. I have 2 takeaways so far.

1- I’m rethinking my life as a writer. Damn, she can write.

2- I’m still midway through it … listening to it while running errands, cooking and washing dishes. Last night I was in the kitchen when Iris & August step out of the closet and Caleb is there.

I was Ralphie and my kids were the dad. 746f270109a8b4bdbaeaf46262e8df94

Woke up today and it was 57 degrees! Hallelujah! My new Miss Moss planner stickers with the gray hair came in (just as my gray hair is coming in).. I’m ready for the next installment of Catalina Cove novel and Dunkin will warm you muffin for you (insert inappropriate giggle).
