I may soon slip into a gravy coma. I have actually spent some time pondering this, and I believe that I have, in fact, eaten my weight in leftovers. It's true. Thank God they are almost all gone or stowed away in the freezer. I did make a big batch of turkey stock from the turkey carcass, and the leftover turkey is frozen for a future turkey pot pie, so I'm feeling nicely frugal. I may turn the last of the sweet potatoes into soup. Hmmm.
And speaking of turkey, will someone please remind me next year to buy a BIGGER BIRD. It's not that we didn't have enough turkey, we did, the problem is that all of the leftover meat is DARK meat. Which is a-okay with Jimmy, the dark meat eater, but I want my white meat, dang it! Everybody who came for Thanksgiving ate the white meat. Maybe I should buy a separate turkey breast to cook on the side? Please advise.
Final Thanksgiving thought...
I have a new favorite text abbreviation - OMW! As opposed to OMG, which I've always hated. My friend Ronda used it in an email the other day and I love it's old-school Texan quality. Can anybody guess what it stands for? No? Well I'll tell you - Oh My Word! Don't you love that? All the old women I grew up around used to say that- "Oh my word! I've never heard such a thing!" or "Oh my word! That just breaks my heart!" I guess they were concerned about taking the Lord's name in vain, and so avoided the OMG thing. I love it. It's my new thing.
The other day, Jude and I got slightly hysterical when we saw this commercial...
It's REAL, y'all! I thought for sure it was a Saturday Night Live commercial parody, but it's not. Jude told me about this one too...
These Goliath people are out of their minds. OMW! (see, I told you it was my new thing).
My best friend Sharon's daughter, the beautiful Lauren, who is fresh out of college, just landed a neat job with the company that runs RetailMeNot. Have y'all used them yet? It's kind of a clearing house of online coupons. I recommend you go and click around. You can type in a store or a website, and they'll give you links to all coupon codes or online sales that are happening right now. Definitely worth checking out if you do online Christmas shopping!
So that's another random Tuesday. Hope you've all recovered from Thanksgiving! Go visit Stacy and the others!
