Finger Foods

April 26, 2012 // Posted in Fun, Good Food, Life, Movies & TV, Music (Tags: , ) |  No Comments

Most nights I eat dinner like a proper young woman. I have a table set with the proper silver ware, on a place mat, with a glass of water and condiments. If I am alone, I serve from the stove top. If I have company, I serve from the table. And if I have company, I use candles and dim the overhead light. Sometimes I turn on the stereo and play soft rock or smooth jazz to add to the mood.

But once in a while it is fun to mix it up. I like to eat on the couch in front of the TV. If I’m doing that, I fix a variety of finger foods in stead of a formal plating. The finger foods can be anything from steamed dumplings to hot wings. Tonight I’m thinking it will be a finger food night with a cold beer and a movie from Redbox.

What sounds good to you?

Thank Gawd Its Fry Day

April 13, 2012 // Posted in Good Food, Life (Tags: , ) |  No Comments

Tonight we are going to a fish fry. It’s a fund raiser for a darling little historic log cabin and the surrounding property, including the family cemetery that has headstones going back to the early 1800’s. There are some old headstones that have faded and worn down so badly that you cannot read them at all. One of the most interesting parts is that the main family, James and Lucy Buchanan, that lived there for the longest contiguous time had 16 children together. James was in his 40’s and had already built the log cabin when he married 17 year old Lucy. They both lived long lives and are buried together in the family cemetery.

Now there is an historical society that keeps the property maintained and offers tours and special events. Its a lovely place for a small wedding or private party. Tonight they are hosting a fish fry open to the public to raise money for the property’s upkeep. I love the idea of good food and helping a good cause.

Dark Coffee

One of the guys I used to work with likes to tell everyone he liked his coffee like he likes his women, dark and sweet. Which to most people would mean this old, fat white guy likes to fuck young black girls.

He would always laugh hysterically after he said that and then just walk away. I don’t know what kind of girls he was really fucking – if any. But I kinda think they were not all that sweet and innocent. I bet he had to pay for it.

Fucking Sick of Chocolates Already

February 17, 2012 // Posted in Friends, Good Food, Life, Love (Tags: , , ) |  No Comments

So Valentine’s Day came and went, just like my boyfriend. Ha ha. At least he got to make sure he got his rocks off that night. He sprang for a nice dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse – his favorite restaurant. I would have liked a different restaurant, but I wasn’t asked.

He bought me a big box of cheap chocolates that came in a big red cardboard box with red cellophane and cheap red bow glued on it. Big fucking deal. Don’t try to impress me with a huge box of cheap chocolates. Buy me a couple of the good chocolates in a small gold ballotin with a simple ribbon tied around it. That is how to impress me. A few expensive things trump a lot of cheap crap any day.

I ate a couple of the chocolates to demonstrate my gratitude. They are awful. I know its crazy to call any chocolate awful, but it is the truth. Once you’ve learned the difference between cheap chocolates and the gourmet level of chocolates, its impossible to go back. I’m probably going to throw the rest of this crap in the trash – unless any of you want them. I’m sick of them already but you can have them.

Cracker barrel

We are having Thanksgiving dinner at Cracker Barrel. The food is awesome and we don’t have a mess to clean up or ten tons of fucking leftovers to eat until we are nauseous. I love Thanksgiving, but I hate having nothing to eat but left overs for days on end afterwards. lol Now it is not a problem since we decided to eat out. Pig out till you puke ! lol
