I'm feeling all efficient and such today. And as The Chief says, if I want to be efficient, I probably shouldn't, you know, say a lot.
I suppose it's because I tend to want to share all kinds of things like how frustrating it is to never, ever, once, ever, be able to type the word because without it first coming out becasue. Ever.
And how I'm simply devastated that my NCAA Basketball Tourney bracket WENT UP IN FLAMES over the weekend. UMMM..... A shout-out to the #1 and #2 seeds in the mix: WHAT UP MY FRIENDS?
So. For the sake of efficiency, I present the following, uh, groupings, yes GROUPINGS of thought!
So much better than a list, don't you think?
Don't forget to send in your suggestions for who should receive this week's baked goods surprise. So far we have suggestions from Cindy, Gayla, and Sara. To suggest someone yourself, simply give us a shout out on the comments here on this post (not on FB please) and make sure you don't include any identifying information about the person you are suggesting. I'll pick the recipient on Wednesday and post the recipe and ship the gift on Thursday!
Sunday's Houston Chronicle featured an article about SONIC ICE.
Well, more specifically, "nugget ice". This year celebrates the 30th anniversary of this ICY WONDER.
Thank you Scotsman Ice Systems! We (mankind) are truly indebted.
And Bless Their Hearts, they have also created a digital community, Luvthenug.com, a site where fans can locate their nearest chewable ice purveyor by ZIP CODE.
And please do not get me started on the nugget ice paraphernalia that is available, or the fact that THE NUG TRUCK WILL TOUR THE COUNTRY LATER THIS YEAR.
It is simply too much to fathom all in one day.
Because it's Round Top Week!
Because my great neighbor JoBeth brought us some delicious Burnt Sugar Cake!
Because The Weege's leg seems a Little better!
Because I spilled BACON GREASE all over my kitchen floor last night!
Because NEITHER THE CHIEF NOR I FELL OFF THE BED LAST NIGHT!
I'm giving away another one of my beloved bowls.
Yes. It's true.
This could be yours.
And perhaps this whole giveaway thing IS simply an attempt on my part to justify my plan to buy two or three more at Round Top this week...
So Be It.
You might win a bowl because of my schemes!
I just love it when my schemes are productive all the way around.
So, if you'd like to be the proud owner of this #118 Official Marked Texas Ware bowl, do the following:

Has anyone noticed that I discovered the colored font button?
