Me and Rachael, We're Like This.

Tomorrow is our annual office Christmas party and I have to bring a dish to share. I'm making something I've never made before, which is not a very good idea! What if it sucks?

I saw a recipe for "Stuffin' Muffins," created by America's sweetheart, Rachael Ray The ingredients look good--apples, onions, celery, parsley, sage, thyme, bread cubes, stock, and of course, buttuh. Rachael wouldn't dare give me a bad recipe.

The recipe also calls for EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil. That's how Rachael Ray always says it. She abreviates the name, then goes ahead and says the whole name anyway, thus defeating the purpose of the abbreviation in the first place. Department of Redundancy Department!

I think I'm going to start doing that. Any time I say an abreviated name, I am then going to follow up by saying the whole thing. IRS Internal Revenue Service. DVD Digital Video Disc. CD Compact Disc. UPS United Parcel Service. You get the picture. LOL Laugh Out Loud!

I'll document my new recipe tomorrow morning, and put it in a PDF Portable Document Format so I can post pictures. I know, I am beating this joke to death already. I'll stop now.

More later!

Just a little update. The stuffin muffins were sort of a hit. People were eating them and telling me they were good. I must admit, that when I was preparing them, I was skeptical. The recipe didn't seem to have much in the way of binding ingredients, and I was thinking they'd fall apart, but they didn't! They needed to be cooked about twice as long as the recipe said. I'm going to try them again tomorrow with Christmas din din.

Oh the Theatre IV/Barksdale Holiday party. I have to admit, it just hasn't felt like Christmas without it these past four years. Have fun, I wish I could be there.
