I got up really early yesterday and took a shower. I'm getting a pretty good at showering post plastics and I'm cool even if I drop the shampoo. Why? Because I have the world's most talented toes. Yes, that's right I'll toot my own horn. My toes rock!
When I was about 7 years old I watched a television news program about a girl who tragically lost her arms. Her story really made an impression on me. I thought... what if that happened to me??? So for weeks I threw shit all over my bedroom carpet (paperclips, coins, bit of paper, buttons, etc.) and practiced picking them up with my toes. I mastered it. There is nothing I can not pick up. I can also write my name. It's my Molly Ringwald thing I can do. Remember in the movie The Breakfast Club Molly Ringwald's character Claire could put on her lipstick with her boobs... I can pick anything up with my toes. Yeah. I think my skill is muuuuuuuch more useful than that boob thing.
So back to my weekend. I went to the Farmer's Market. I bought Eggplant, heirloom Garlic, Onions, Sweet Potatoes, Parsley, Corn, Cauliflower, Leeks, Yellow Squash, and my Mom's Austrian Fruit Bread. Oh and a couple of those yummy Turkish Burgers from that nice vendor and his daughter. They are killer with my Yogurt Dill Dip.
After the FM we went to Starbuck's and about 5 other stores to get the rest of the week's supplies and Thanksgiving Menu items.
Here's the Eggface Family Thanksgiving Menu as it stands (subject to tweaking). I will of course add some recipes and food porn to the blog next week.
Citrus and Herb Turkey Breast
Roasted Eggplant Stuffing (my experimental effort at avoiding this from happening)
Green Bean Casserole with Bacon
Creamy Crockpot Corn
Cranberry Sauce (I don't eat it)
Dessert: No Sugar Added Pumpkin Pie (store bought) I bought one to taste test and it was yummy so I'll be getting another for Thursday.
I came home and literally crashed for hours. I can go really well for awhile and then when tired hits it's a crazy... MUST LIE DOWN NOW! feeling. Intense. I guess I shopped till I dropped literally.
Today was going great. I had fun plans. I made a Tortilla Pizza for lunch. Mmmm a great combo of sauteed Onions and Mushrooms, Pesto Sauce, Provolone, Parmesan, and Italian Seasonings.
But it all went south...
I was in my garage and one of my two kitties got under my feet (he's blind can't blame him) and I fell backwards and smashed my still swollen from plastics back into the counter. I burst into tears. I was only soothed by the insides of a slice of the taste test no-sugar added pumpkin pie I bought... well that and a leftover happy pill. I was going to make a cameo at a friend's baby shower but I was sad and pie and drugs sounded better.
Later I'm going to BBQ Steak and Corn (elote style) and watch Amazing Race. Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
Highlights of the weekend:
