For the holiday, we're going to a friend's beach house this weekend. YAY! BEACH!!! YAY! FRIENDS!!!!
And, our friends are not only two of the smartest people we know, but the most popular people we know. Before they moved away, hanging out with them was like suddenly being welcome at the popular kids' table in the school caf.
But, it gets better. One of this is a fabulous cook. He doesn't go in for desserts and baking, so I've been assigned to bring the sweets. To sweeten the pot, he has given me a theme. You know I love a theme.
We are going to do a classic tailgate and watch college football.
I'm making mini choco cupcakes and topping them with a key lime frosting I invented. And, I'm making margarita jello shots. OH GOSH it feels good to be able to cook again . . . and FOR A THEME!!
Beach! Friends! Food! Football!
My little monkey brain is just pulsing!
