Fried pickles, seven layer dip, cold beer, coca cola, french fries, chicken wings, sliders, hotdogs, nachos, pulled pork sandwiches, chips and queso, barbecue, tater tots, stuffed jalapenos - what do all those tasty food items remind you of? Cardiax arrest? Hello, cynical! No, no. It isn't a heart attack of which I speak. It's the super bow!! (Oh, and maybe a heart attack if you eat leftovers all week...).
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh what fun it is to ride, in a one horse open sleigh, hey! Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh. O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way. Bells on bob tails ring, making spirits bright, what fun it is to lauhg and sing a sleighing song tonight!
How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Did you get enough turkey? I certainly hope so. I had plenty of turkey - too much, in fact. I had three Thanksgivings and a Christmas dinner last week. That is a lot of turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and rolls!
When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of great times with family, friends, food and football. That's right, it wouldn't be turkey day without football. After my Thanksgiving, my family all gathered in the game room to watch a whole lot of football. And if you were watching, you know that Saturday was chalk-full of some great games.
It's the day before Thanksgiving. And you know what that means? It's two days before Black Friday! That's right, the biggest shopping day of the year. Like, by far the biggest. Any of my loyal blog readers planning on hitting it up? For some people, Black Friday shopping is family tradition. The holiday weekend goes about like this: wake up early on Thursday to cook the feast, cook all morning, eat around 2 p.m., watch a little football, fall asleep on the couch thanks to the tryptophan found in turkey (an amino acid that makes us humans tired, tired, tired), wake up and eat a snack of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and cream corn, plan for the Black Friday extravaganza, rest a little, and then.... SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!!!
Sandy. She is one violent lady. And she is wreaking havoc on the northeast - homes, businesses, streets, subways, beaches, hotels, restaurants, shops, airports, apartments, cars, buses, hospitals, presidential campaigns - you name it, she is trying to destroy it.
Of course, when I say "she," I actually mean the storm - the superstorm of the decade for the northeast. She is the largest Atlantic tropical system on record (per her diameter), and because of that statistic, New York and surrounding northeastern areas were bracing for the worst. My friends up in New York City were preparing all weekend for Sandy's wrath. They bought plenty of water, candles, flashlights, food and blankets. They were preparing for power outages and cold temperatures. Here are the facts about Miss Sandy:
