For some reason I got a wild and crazy craving for hot sauce today so at lunch time I bought some popcorn chicken and potato wedges and smothered them in Louisiana Hot Sauce.  It was scrumptious and I ate every bite. 

My stomach hates me now and is threatening to move out.

I don't ever remember having heartburn before.  I would have remembered something like this.  Peptol Bismol, take me away!

Zachary gave me an indoor electric turkey frier for Christmas.  I used it for the first time last night to fry up homemade chicken tenders and french fries.  Becca and Rocky did the chicken.  By the time they were done there were white flour hand prints all over the kitchen and dining room.  We always have so much fun cooking.  I credit my mom with that, she enjoyed cooking so much that helping her was more fun than a chore.  While I'm not quite as neat and organized as she, I have inherited her gift for culinary creation and have passed it on to all of my children.  Even Dickidoo and the boys can be counted on in the kitchen.

Except for when it comes to doing the dishes.  Nobody likes washing up afterwards.  Zack is my Dirty Dish Fairy, but he's only part time.  Now I remember why I started doing all those microwave meals and paper plate buffets... I HATE WASHING DISHES!

2 more weeks and I will get to eat some of my Mama's home cooking.  Yahoo!  And Daddy already has the Corona and truffles ready and waiting.  Woo hoo!

Dorn, have a great tip to Hawai (s/p it don't look right to me).
Enjoy it and your family. Loved my trip there and would like to go back again.
Heartburn, my remedy for that is a quarter spoon of baking soda in a small glass of water. It works for me and is always on hand. I have a regular anit acid pill that I use most of the time but the baking soda usually results in a nice or a good burp that I enjoy.
Take care, Bill

Jody-I sure hope your belly is feeling better this morning. I try and teach the kids how to cook, but they like making desserts best (who doesn't). But I am not a neat cooker either. For Holidays I prepare everything the nite before so noone sees the mess...My dish fairy trades dishes for other chores, so I AM the Dishfairy!!!
