Well y'all, here we go again. A major cold front blew in causing temps to drop 25 degrees in about 3 hours here at the North Texas Pole! Ya know...I can't help wondering why-oh-why the pounds won't drop that fast off me. Sadly, my frozen front-side (as well as the back-side tundra) is still the same size as when I went to bed last night. Even sadder...the ice and snow will melt off quickly by Saturday...but not the pounds. You'd think the extra padding would keep me warm (works for seals...ort,ort) but sadly...no.
All this cold weather has me thinking up creative ways to keep warm. I've looked at the nursery catalogs while dreaming of spring, drank a bootleg keg of hot Dr Pepper, ate stew out the wazoo and now I'm starting to make googly, calf-eyes at ol' Cat Daddy! (Here kitty, kitty!) Desperate times call for desperate measures meaning a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do to crank up some heat. I can't layer on any more clothes 'cause there's nothing left in the closet...except swimsuits and peignoirs from 1985! (Before y'all say it or even think it...NO! I know what I've said before, but not even for five minutes. I'll just remain cold 'cause the alternative would result in a blackout from a temporary lack of oxygen!)
Never fear y'all...Sweet Pea's to the rescue! Gloria has all kinds of things planned for the rest of this month guaranteed to get your engines and hearts warmed up.
There's a new
sheriff, I mean chef in town (town being The Bistro) who is known by the name Blaise and he's straight out of New Orleans. (How apropos y'all. Blaze...get it?) He and Gloria are planning a Valentine's four course dinner to be served on February 11, 12, and 14. I know this info is coming to you late, but hey...there is still time to make a reservation. The meal selections are Fab U Lous, but even better are the dessert choices to light an inner fire. NOW I got y'all's attention! Ever had Bananas Foster? (Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!) How about Bread Pudding? Two Louisiana classics for sure, but the clincher for heating up a really cold night...Chocolate Lava Molten Cake! I KNOW! Take me away Fabio...I mean Cat Daddy! So-o-o...if you're looking for something special to celebrate your true love (in my case...the love of food)...here ya go! Did I mention BYOB? (Bubbly...not boudoir! The cold has me feeling a little frisky...excusez-moi!)
If that wasn't enough...there's a trunk show coming to Sweet Pea's in February too and not just any ol' trunk show. Forget Saratoga or steamers...move over Louis Vuitton...people we have Janet Waldrop of Skip To My Lou coming!
Each unique piece is presented in Janet's inimitable style. Her eye for detail is just extraordinary with each piece having a story to tell. Please make plans to attend...you can thank me later.
One more little bit of newness at Sweet Pea's that's just in time for V-Day. Allison (of The Flower Girl in Tyler) is now in the house with unique bouquets for your honey...or you! Signature arrangements with sweetness guaranteed not to increase lb's...only X's and O's!
I find myself having a sudden yen for snow ice cream, so I guess I'll call it a wrap. Gotta go hunker down (I can't believe I'm using this poor, tired expression...darn weather guys!) for the next two days and try very...VERY... hard not to bury C.D. in the snow!
