Running for the Roses...or something....

And...I'm off!

Okay. (sigh) I've been up for a while.

Cleaning. Food prep. Cleaning some more. Crap! I forgot to take a shower yet. What time are the kids coming? What time does the party start?

Did my son really say last night he and his wife are coming EARLY? Before NOON?

(deep breath)

Oh, okay. So maybe they will have to WATCH me clean. And perhaps my son can help me drag that cabinet to the garage...

Did I mention I'm STILL behind on my current manuscript? Like, past deadline? I hope my editor isn't reading...

At any rate, today I plan to post about Derby food. Yes, I'll post some recipes here and over at SisterWriter's today.

(huge exhale...)

I think. Stay tuned!

(okay, please forgive the cross-post between here and sisters, but as you can see, I'm racing toward the finish....)

Sounds like a busy day, but I'm sure you'll have fun! Maybe the whole family can pitch in and help with the cooking, too...

kind of an early Mother's Day?

I think you need to slow down and take a deep breath. They're there for the Derby, right? Don't knock yourself out cleaning.
Don't know about the meatballs, they sound a little odd with the jelly in there.

Yeah. Duly noted and deep breath taken, Jennifer. Oddly enough, the jelly and chili sauce together make a really nice glaze over the meatballs. It also works with little weiners or sausages. I know, weird.

About the cleaning...I'm really more concerned about being cleaned up for the jewelry party my daughter is hosting here tomorrow, with people coming in I've never met before! Heck with the kids, they've seen messes before. LOL
