Jimminy Crickets!

It's been over two years since I grossed out Paula Deen (and the nation) with my fried butter creation. I still get hits on my blog from people searching for the (not so) tasty treats. It's like they've taken on a life of their own. So much so, someone decided to make a t-shirt about them.

Paula, I'm bringing my baby girl back to Savannah in March and I would love to cook something for you that actually tastes Because, girl I tear it up in the kitchen. Especially Mexican food. And I promise, I'll wear the shirt. ;-)

Where I Be At

So, I haven't posted much lately. And not because I haven't had things on my mind or the desire to share those things. But, life threw me a curve and I had to deal with it before it took me over.

To start, I worked at a land developement company. It doesn't take a mental giant to realize that with the state of the economy, specifically the housing market, that land developers are not doing well. The company I worked for was no exception. They started laying people off in February. And my turn came in September.

I was devestated. I received a generous severance package, but that didn't asuage my fears of how I was going to provide for my daughter. But I didn't have the luxury of throwing myself a pity party. I needed a j-o-b. Which, I finally found and am finally being paid what I'm worth.

Part of my severance package was two months of health coverage. So I made every docotor's appointment I could think of. Including a mammogram (which wasn't that bad and came back negative ~ YAY me!) and an appointment with a dermotologist. I had a bump on the side of my face I thought was just a colorless mole. But it's me. I'm not that lucky. My dermo handed it to me like it was a lolipop. Skin Cancer.

I'm happy to say that I saw a wonderful doctor and am now cancer free. YAY me!

So, the past few months, while rough have been filled with friends and family who love me and have helped and supported me along the way. For this I am humbled and truly thankful.

I have a ton of ideas I've been saving and will be posting (hopefully) daily if not weekly.

I hope this post finds you well and loved. Thanks for reading! :-)
