I’ve been absent for a while, but all is well. The new gig is great and after working one full week, I was blessed with an entire week off… with pay since they’re closed from Christmas to New Year’s. Can’t complain about that one for real. So I’ve just spent a good amount of time with family and much more time by myself doing much of nothing. If I watch one more judge show I might lose my mind. Anyway, Christmas was good as I spent Christmas Eve with my immediate family in MD and then rode to Carolina and spent Christmas Day with my fiancée’s family in the country. Ever heard of Enfield, NC???? Well… that’s country. Had a great time, even though being the lone Cowboy fan among a family of Dallas haters had it’s trying moments during such a terrible game. No need to discuss that loss any further okay. I was treated with the warm love that you’d expect from good down home folks. With that love came more love in the form of food and desserts. If I don’t watch it, I’m gonna be looking like the Nutty Professor by this time next year. I’ve got sweets for days I tell ya. I mean… really!!!! Take the desserts that I brought back from the country, along with what I received before and even some after Christmas and I might need to have a bake sale. Let me go over the line-up.
First off, grandma in NY sent me my bags of homemade cookies that I get every year around this time. Oatmeal raisin, sugar and chooclate chip. These are the real deal folks!!!!
Then my man came through from Cali and spent time back home in DC for about 2 weeks. While I was chillin’ at his crib during that time frame, his moms laced me with some goodies.
Homemade cookies – chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin & sugar
Huge slice of homemade cherry pie
Homemade poundcake from scratch
Homemade lemon bars
Christmas Eve my sweetie decided that she just needed her chocolate fix and she baked some brownies.
Then we went to Carolina for Christmas and brought back a ‘few’ slices of cake. The first plate disappeared somewhere folks. I think the phantom ate that one…. lol. Anyway, we have lemon cake, pineapple coconut cake and strawberry cake w/strawberry icing… my favorite!!!!
Now what am I supposed to do with all these sweets??? I can’t be eating all of this stuff. I mean, I’d love to eat maybe half of it, but even that’s not healthy is it??? Awwww maaaan… I dunno what to do. I don’t even know where to start. I want to grab that last slice of cherry pie and pair it up with some vanilla ice cream. On the other hand, I kinda wanna just destroy that entire cake plate with a tall glass of milk. This is crazy. Ummmmm… I don’t think I’ll be posting any pics of myself for a while. I feel my face getting fat. This might be my last entry of 2006 and if it is I’d like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable New Year.
