Tomorrow is St. Patrick's day and last night my husband and I were busy in the kitchen preparing goodies for him to take to his office party this afternoon; nothing to do with the Irish holiday, just an excuse for them to munch out. I am very jealous because at my office there was no celebration of the upcoming holiday!!
What were our contributions to the party you say? Well, not Irish at all (our goodies) my husband made his famous salsa and at his request I baked some yummy cornbread muffins. Not wanting to hear that someone pinched the little muffins I added some green to them in the form of chopped jalapeno ( to the batter).
As for our kitchen conversation, well.. I asked why he volunteered to take cornbread muffins! Was someone taking a dish in which cornbread would be appropriate? He really couldn't remember what the sign-up sheet said, but I have a feeling it was an excuse to ask me to bake the muffins and enjoy them unsupervised (out of my sight).
The rest of our conversation while we cleaned up the kitchen stirred to me mentioning to my honey how much I had been enjoying the CD of Adele he gave me (which I asked) for Valentine's Day all the way up to the point where I noticed what big lungs the woman has. No off colored remarks please, what I meant is that the woman can suck up some air in between phrases! I had not noticed until after a few days of my blasting the music and singing along in my car. I began to inhale in the same places as she does and just as hard!! I thought I was going to hyperventilate on my daily commute!!
I still like her (Adele) but I would love to write her some fan mail to say "Thank you for enunciating (my choir teacher would be impressed), but would you please work on your breathing!!"
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
