For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen

I know I'm not keeping up.  I'm trying to read everyone on my google reader and I get so enthralled with everyone's posts, I run out of time to write my own.  And, being honest with y'all, I've been pretty darn boring lately.  Case in point...

Oprah's cancelling her talk show doesn't bother me except for the fact that she is now free to pursue her real goal - World Domination.  Mark my words, there is nothing that woman can't do.

I haven't seen "New Moon" but I am very excited to go see "2012".  Nothing turns me on like a movie with no vampires.

I'm gathering low-carb, sugar-free recipes for Thanksgiving Dinner.  There are some unusual ingredients on my list.  I'm hoping, firstly, that the cauliflower mashed 'potatoes' aren't grounds for divorce... and secondly, that Claim Jumper is open on Thanksgiving Day.  Just in case.

I'm off to Golden Corral for Thanksgiving! Nothing says Thanksgiving like a bunch of strangers stampeding for turkey.

Make your reservations for Claim jumpers right now cause if you place mashed califlower on the table there just might be mass revolt.
2012..........that sounds like an uplifting movie to say the least.
Hope you do have a good Thanksgiving!

I've made mashed cauliflower recently. It's actually pretty good---my only complaint is I can't get the consistency to match mashed potatoes. I'm thinking if you mix one real potato, or a cup or so of imitation potatoes and mix it with the cauliflower it'll be pretty great.

Tess actually asked me for mashed cauliflower the other day. It sounds so yummy, especially drenched in cheese sauce! Christmas, we are here. What about you guys?

Sherrie said...

Been Missing you! You never fail to make my day :) I'm not sure about the whole mashed cauliflower thing especially for Thanksgiving. My family would ban me forever! 2012 is an awesome, well done movie. Recommend it. Truly have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

Low carb Thanksgiving? No no no!!! Bad! Wrong! Er... Communist! No, wait, they actually eat mostly carbs.

I've heard of people who made healthy Thanksgiving dinners, but I've never actually known any. This is so exciting! It's like meeting someone from another country! (which, of course, you are...)

And good luck with those cauliflower smashers. They'll probably be so great they'll turn into an all new Thanksgiving tradition, and generations from now they'll sit around and talk about Old Granny R Max, and how thankful they are that she introduced health into Thanksgiving.

I'm sure that's what's going to happen. Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, Girlfriend, you certainly know how to get MY attention!! I like to think you chose the title of this post just for ME!

The cauliflauer mashed potatoes just sound wretched. Feed them to the Vogans.

I too am surprised at how little I care that Oprah is quitting her show. However, the parameters of her show at least categorized her as "mostly harmless". We'll see what she comes up with next.

Maybe she'll "apologize for the inconvenience"?

And will her final words be "So long, and thanks for all the fish"?

We can only hope! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Heart you, Fenchurch!

I've heard of mashed cauliflower, but I've never had it. Pass me the uber-fattening potatoes!

I much prefer to read other people's blogs than to write on my own. That's why my blog will have the same post at the top for days (weeks, months...) before I write something new.

I'm grateful that all my favorite blog writers are not as lazy as I am.

isn't "sugar free - and thanksgiving" and oxymoron. (or is it oxymormon??)

What Oprah is cancelling her show ---I DID NOT KNOW --guess I haven't been watching her show lately.

Hubby is really "into" 2012 and really wonders if the world will come to an end then ---REALLY, he wonders. I said don't worry, the Lord will wait until I have my 2 years supply gathered

hope you had a great thanksgiving

So how'd the mashed cauliflower go? My family are strict purists when it comes to mashed potatoes and we're very serious about them. Cauliflower would definately bring on a mutiny at my home. Any mayhem over the non-traditional dishes?
