I’ve been out of town for a quick trip to Charlotte in an attempt to get my Christmas shopping done before the boys start their winter vacation next week. I managed to get 80% of it done and scored some serious barganzas in the process.
And can I just insert that I love me an outlet mall that has TWO Starbucks in it.
I went with three other girlfriends and you will not be surprised to find out that it was my job to choose the restaurant for dinner Wednesday evening. I went with Luce, and was not disappointed. The coconut gelato alone was worth the price of admission.
I would have taken a picture but I was in such a rapturous state that all rational thought left me.
A couple of thoughts that I’ve been meaning to share. Since I acted all Martha and crafty yesterday, I thought I’d make a Martha recipe from the most recent Christmas magazine.
This is Martha’s picture from her lovely magazine, so all credit to whomever took it…blah blah blah
Mine came out looking not so pretty and tasting even worse.
I read the recipe FOUR times to make sure I understood that it called for two TABLESPOONS of salt, and believing that Martha would not steer me wrong, I went with what she called for, but I’m sorry to report that it was completely indedible and I had to throw it away.
Save your high blood pressure and just take a pass.
Whew, feels good to have that public service announcement out of the way.
Secondly, I’m highly concerned about this.
“Inconvenient” is not the word I would use for this situation.
“DEFCON 5″ better suits the level of alert in which we currently find ourselves.
Have a nice day.
