This is going to be a quick week, but a busy week!

Today I have a site visit, an event, Kanye's new album comes out AND Allstate just called me - CHECK IS IN THE MAIL Y'ALL!!!
Tomorrow I will get a lot of work done.
Wednesday I will leave work early to get ready for Thanksgiving!

For the first time ever, my family will be split up on Thanksgiving Day. But that's okay, because Friday we will all be under my mom's roof, together again, and making our own Thanksgiving dinner.

So while Mom is with our extended family, and sister with her in-laws, I will be here in Nashville with C's family. While I am not responsible for too significant of a portion of the meal Thursday or Friday, I am happily contributing what I can. Thursday, I am providing the appetizer (hot bacon and swiss dip, a favorite dish that my sister makes often) and the most important side dish: fresh, hot homemade mashed potatoes. I figure since I will be eating most of them, I should cook them. I am also making the mashed potatoes on Friday afternoon in Alabama. I might even pull out my grandmother's potato strainer, just for fun. Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things.

And speaking of favorite things, Oprah is airing her signature episode this Wednesday, scaled-back style. Whatever. Scaled-back for Oprah is only spending $1000 on a fridge instead of $3500 for one with a high-def TV. Who needs a high-def TV in their fridge? If you have one, please let me know how it has benefited you because I just don't see it happening.

Never one to be out done by Oprah, I am working on Lindsay's Favorite Things 2008. I know you can barely contain your excitement.

Number one on this year's list: my job. Which I am at right now. So I'd better get back to work!


  1. please share recipe for hot bacon and swiss dip! you can't drop names like that and not let us all in on the secret...

  2. I'll let her do it - it's her recipe and she can tell where she got it originally. My guess: Rachael Ray.

  3. Actually, it's not Racheal Ray. It's Lisa Dunn - she used to make it all the time for our bible study group in high school and we would gobble it up.

    Hot Bacon and Swiss Dip
    1 1/2 pkgs cream cheese
    1/3 cup mayonaise
    1 cup grated Swiss cheese
    3 TBS chopped green onions
    8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
    1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers, plus extra for serving

    Soften cream cheese in mixing bowl and add mayo, Swiss, and green onions. Mix well and pour into oven-safe baking dish. Sprinkle crumbled bacon and crushed crackers on top. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until bubbly. Serve with crackers and enjoy!

  4. I forget where I had it, but that dip is awesome.


Oh goody!
