How could you not be having a "Feel Good Friday"? It is the day before the Kentucky Derby, two week of parties and fun. Everyone should be posting on "Feel Good Friday".
Before we get started let me share the fact that I did find my "Hot Mess" Scratch and Sniff T-Shirt, and I'm working on the "Hot Mess Brownies" recipe I'll post next week. That alone has made me Feel Good this week. But there is more!
When I lived in Florida, several years ago, we always had a derby party and so did everyone else on the street. We never invited the neighbors or them us, we would simply get tired of our party and drift over to the different houses to see what was going on and they did the same. I have been known to miss the running of the derby altogether. No one ever drove after drinking too much, they stayed overnight, called a cab, or someone took them home. We were responsible drunks.
There was always so much food, Burgoo, Hot Browns, Country Ham and Biscuits, Beef Tenderloin with Henry Bain Sauce, Fresh Asparagus, Derby Pie. You were so busy eating you almost forgot to drink, except the Mint Juleps.
I know for a fact that if you could see me now, not only would you smile, you would burst out laughing. Good thing I live alone. Get a visual on this: Sitting at the computer, it's 7:30 a.m. Wearing my derby hat - wide brim black straw with a 6-8-inch red flower, I don't know what it is. I have on my new black sandals with 3-inch heels, that I can now walk in, and my long flannel night gown that has little puppy dogs all over it. Do you get the picture? My little Yorkies will not even come in the room with me and I hope the UPS cutie doesn't come to the door.
Well, I thought it was funny, but maybe it was just one of those "You had to be there." things.
Hope you've had a great week and don't forget to watch the Derby and have a Mint Julep.
Thanks for asking, Betty is doing lots better. I told you Chicken Soup and a few prayers will cure anything. She is so cute, she is amazed that "everyone in the world" knows she has been sick.
Visit me during the week, or I'll see you next "Feel Good Friday".
