I haven't been able to post very often for the past week or so. Like Mel Gibson, I've been recovering from my excesses. Unlike Mel Gibson, they didn't involve motor vehicles or police officers, but it would have been nice if someone had held a gun to my head and suggested that I STEP AWAY FROM THE FOOD!!!!!!!! Which I list in no particular order since I am in denial that any of this happened.
However, I do confess to going on vacation and witnessing the following foods being eaten: chicken breasts browned in pure butter with white rice, all covered in a rich and buttery [can you ever have too much?] lemon sauce, chips and dip, cantaloupe, corn, tomatoes, birthday cake, carne alotta asada, grilled chicken fajitas, homemade refried beans, fresh tortillas, hand carried from this little place in New York that makes them fresh every day, more corn, tomatoes, homemade guacamole, hot cheese dip, mango cheese, hot pepper cheese, more cheese, artichoke dip, which if you'll recall has plenty of mayo AND parmesan cheese, chips, crackers, more chips, birthday ice cream cake -- different birthday, fresh baked crumb cake, homemade cinnamon buns, homemade apple cake, lasagne, garlic bread made with whipped butter, garbage salad, tomatoes, corn, more corn, tomato sandwiches, leftover hot cheese dip with chips, chocolate chip cookies, mozzarella and tomato salad, corn, chicken something with mushrooms, apple, candied nut, spinach, blue cheese salad, pie, key lime pie, homemade brownies, garlic bread with real garlic not garlic salt, so it stays on your breath longer, iced tea, tea, tea, a margarita that knocked me on my ass because I don't usually drink, homemade fruit cobbler, homemade pound cake with fresh strawberries, deviled eggs, homemade peach salsa, chips, bean dip, steak, corn, tomatoes, Irish oatmeal with maple syrup, pizza, leftover pizza, chocolate chip cookies and milk at least a couple of times more, cantaloupe, orange juice. . .sorry, it's time for my Zantac.
