Well, I hope you all have a day filled with summer fun!!!

Food and festivities …

Yesterday my oldest daughter, Sidney, came home for a few days. Sidney is a foodie just like me so when she is here on a quick trip it’s like a whirlwind of fun and eating!

Well, I hope you all have a day that is full of food and festivities!!!

Donuts …

I had ANOTHER dream about food. And this one WASN’T about green smoothies. YAY! I spent years unable to recall any of my dreams and now I can recall them EVERY night! It’s really an neat experience for me. And yes … I am aware that I probably dream about food more than any other person on earth. HA!

Well, I hope you all wake up with DONUTS on your mind!!!

Blazing buns …

I love kaiser rolls. They remind me of a winter break I spent in New York many moons ago. The foodie in me just loves food memories. They bring such detail to life events. A taste. A smell. It all brings you back to the very moment you experienced long ago. For me there is nothing quite like a warm kaiser roll with butter and egg to warm your soul on a snowy day. We obviously don’t get snowy days in Southern California but with the impending rain I went to the market yesterday to make sure we had my favorite rolls in the house.

Everyone is on a different schedule here this morning. So breakfast was a buffet of easy foods. I made bacon and sausage the other day and eggs were cooked as needed. I also put out bagels and, of course, kaiser rolls. Libs had a challenge match this morning and I planned on eating after I got back from dropping her off. Her opponent was running late so Libs told me I had plenty of time to eat beforehand. I was pretty hungry so I put a kaiser roll in the oven to warm it and cooked an egg. I guess I was feeling a little rushed because when I reached into the oven to retrieve my warm kaiser roll I pulled it out (so fast?!?!) that it flipped off the baking sheet and on to the bottom of the oven … and caught on FIRE! In my decades of warming kaiser rolls this has NEVER happened before. So I quickly turned off the oven, grabbed some tongs and threw my flaming kaiser roll into the sink. Disaster averted. If you were wondering, I went back to my original plan of eating after I got back home. Which went without incident, smoke or flames. Yay.

Well, I hope you all have a day where your buns aren’t blazing!!!

A very sweet day (OK, I’ll eat it) …

Today we are heading to the Museum of Ice Cream. I am SO EXCITED! And I have a strange one for you too. I don’t even like ice cream. But hey, WHEN IN ROME!

Well, I hope you all have a VERY SWEET day!!!

Butter …

I can laugh at myself. Which is a REALLY good thing. I find myself in some pretty peculiar situations almost every day of my life so I feel laughter is essential for my survival at this point. HA! Some of these situations are absolutely baffling. HOW THE HECK DID THIS HAPPEN? Some are, sadly, “old hat”. HERE WE GO AGAIN. And then there are other situations that are so revealing about me and my personality that I can’t help but CRACK THE HECK UP.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t find butter smeared all over your smartphone!!!

Decaffeinated …

Late this afternoon I realized I had no coffee today. NO. COFFEE. I wasn’t even trying not to. I just started this day CRAZY busy and it stayed that way all day. You would think that it would have occurred to me that I hadn’t had coffee at 1 pm when I realized I hadn’t eaten yet either. Seriously, it was one of THOSE days. But honestly, I’m in shock. As an avid coffee drinker I’m at a loss. How? I somehow survived the whole day with NO COFFEE. I didn’t die. No one was harmed. And the world didn’t end. Whoda thunk?!?!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are decaffeinated!!!
