This is me today:
It is over a week later - what a 90th Birthday celebration! I wound up with 10 gallons of gumbo (took two days to make), 3 dozen steamed crabs, 30 pounds of marinated shrimp, and a bushel of oysters done up every way you can think. And somehow, a different dinner party every single night until Saturday. That is 8 days of cooking, cleaning, and hanging out with family - in addition to going to work every day! Good Lord.
So today is down time, and I've been browsing through books, mags, and blogs that I love, trying to gear down. Except I've been invited to a North Carolina Spot Fry over at Jamie's, to celebrate HIS mom's birthday. Maybe a little nap, then off to another party!
