Almost the weekend

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I got home late this evening (session with Arthur), and I still have to make a chocolate pie for the Thanksgiving lunch at work tomorrow. Luckily the recipe is VERY easy. The hard part is the chocolate cookie crust, which is easy. The filling gets whipped up in the blender and then it's refrigerated. It's the first of Alton's recipes that I've tried. I think I just won't mention at work tomorrow that the filling is based on tofu. Well, douse ANYTHING in enough chocolate...

Work has been extremely busy and it doesn't help that my boss keeps stopping me. "Call these people today. Write up this refund today. Work these edits today." It apparently all needs to be done today.

But on the upside, she approved the extra day off I asked for next week, as well as the day after Christmas. So I'm getting two five-day weekends in one month. I would love to have had New Year's Eve off but since I'm the payment poster I can't have the last day of the month off any more.

I hope they let us go early after the lunch tomorrow. That way I can go to the craft store before my grocery delivery arrives, so I can get the yarn for the afghan I want to make. Meantime, I've submitted a couple of questions for Thanksgiving Live, and I'm recording it just in case they use one of them. Hearing my name on the Food Network -- that would be AWESOME.

Less than 24 hours to the weekend.

    I hope you will report back on the pie. I can't think of any recipe from Alton that I have tried that wasn't great.

    That would be awesome to hear your name being one of the questions asked, keep your fingers crossed.

That is wonderful that you got those days off from work. Rest this weekend, enjoy your cooking shows.

    I know you work so hard, and you are exhausted when you get here at night. But there is an enthusiasm to each of your blogs, both about the accomplishments at work and about the food you are preparing to make. I look forward to reading your blogs. I hope your chocolate pie wins the best dessert contest tomorrow and that you get to get off early. AND then you are able to have a long restful weekend.
I also hope you get to hear your voice on the food NETWORK, that would be awesome, I hope you don't miss it, I would be recording all of them. LOL.
Congrats on the extended holidays... and I hope you get to spend some time with your son, how is your ex's ankle?
