Must. Stop. Eating.
Oh my word. If my hand goes from some sort of foodstuff to my mouth just once more today, my entire digestive system will spontaneously explode and engulf the known world in a regurgitous mess that would equal none other.
Today I planned to have a big meal to celebrate the Fourth. Since Hubster and the rest of the clan are going out to SIL's for the evening and I'm not allowed to accompany them, I thought we needed to have our own little celebration here.
Only "little" was not exactly what it turned out to be.
Earlier in the week I dropped by the Farmer's Market and picked up sweet corn and tomatoes, then found some green beans. I purchased the other ingredients later on, and it seemed as though the meal just kept on growing in my mind until I began preparing it today. So here's what we had:
Mom's Potato Salad
Mom's Baked Beans
Fresh Green Beans
Fresh Sliced Tomatoes
Homemade Strawberry Shortcake
Homemade Banana Ice Cream
Leftover Coconut Flan
We had Pseudo Daughter, her dad, and Boyfriend over as guests, but there was still plenty left over for another meal. And since this was LUNCH, I'm thinking there will be enough left over for my DINNER tonight while everyone is out shooting off fireworks elsewhere.
So if you happen to hear a particularly loud BOOM! come from around these parts later on tonight, you can say you were warned.
Oh, it's a hard life.
