Random Jottings ~ Vacations

she had going to the wrong place,
with the wrong, man down to an art

~

the trouble with real life vacations is there’s no background music

~

women in bikinis pose, and sometimes that posing is an invitation

or so some men would like to believe

~

‘I promise you I’ll make the sun shine every day…..’ he said

after that it rained a lot

~

it’s unlucky to go back to work the day after you’ve been off

~

never throw a message in a bottle into the sea

you could get arrested for littering

~

it’s good to be bad on vacation

my favourite place to vacation

is anyplace by the ocean

a carnal woman

maybe she was that way because she was sad and lonely

~

leaving a carnal, sexual, woman

one battle over, one victory won

the long struggle that will end

one day in honesty and freedom

not for her, not for years to come

heading to her favorite bar

to look for a much younger man

Food on Friday ~ Thanksgiving

there is always something for which to be thankful

Well, it’s Wednesday not Friday, but there wouldn’t be much point in my publishing some Thanksgiving recipes the day after the event.  So forgive my erroneous title, it’s for a good cause.

You know that we don’t have Thanksgiving here in England, and that some of the things you serve make no sense to me; candied yams for one.  Yet, part of me wishes we did have a Thanksgiving feast in the dark months before Christmas.

There is at least one earlier Thanksgiving post here, you can click on the link of you’d like to see last year’s dishes.  Also check out my November 13th post Food on Friday ~ Mid Autumn.

Have a very happy day tomorrow.

So, first up this week we have a Candied Yams recipe from Lena Abraham at Delish magazine.  (I don’t believe I’ve ever had yams…..)

Candied Yams

This is another dish I really don’t get, but I understand goes down very well on the Thanksgiving board.  From Gimme Some Oven; The Best Green Bean Casserole.  This dish is also really healthy. Enjoy.

The Best Green Bean Casserole

All great meals need a light appitiser that one can also use as a snack with drinks if friends call around.  Jessica Merchant at How Sweet Eats has this very easy recipe for Smoky Chipotle Cheddar Twists.  I just know these will disappear fast…..

One of the most critical things about a turkey dinner is the gravy.  Ergo from Chungah at Damn Delicious we have; How To Make the Best Turkey Gravy.  Looks good to me.

How To Make the Best Turkey Gravy

To start off your Thanksgiving day with a very seasonal holiday breakfast we have these Easy Fluffy Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls from Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest.  These would also go well as a dessert with coffee after dinner.

Our collection this week is from Country Living magazine; 68 Easy Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas the Family is Sure to Love.  From this collection I have chosen to feature their Ginger Pumpkin Pie.

Random Jottings ~ Femme Fatale

now the party’s over he’s beginning to wonder what went wrong

~

a hero is good

a heroine is brilliant

a villain is essential

but a bad woman is erotic

~

‘hold me….’ he said

‘hold your what? she asked

eventually she decided he meant his billfold

~

he would do anything for her

the trouble was so would a lot of other men

~

he would try to forget her

he would spend the rest of his life trying

~

he liked women who looked as though they killed men for a living

~

she thought of herself as a black widow

and that some younger men liked to be caught

sad sweet goodbye

you never lose someone you have truly loved

~

let the rains fall

and wash away her tears

let me be strong

and take away her fears

let me be kind enough

to wish her well

now she loves another

walking away from everything

carnal drinking is messy

addicted to sex, hitting the bars, picking up younger men

~

I was mystified

she cheated and lied

sadly that’s bad

she likes young men

when she can get them

and they know what to do

at the end of every day, I know that I will have done the best that I could

if not for her

cheating doesn’t come from a lack of love
it comes from a lack of respect

~

I saw you with that whore

open dress public amore

that’s only the final coup

guess that we’re through

nobody to blame but you

you could never be true

did you have to choose someone older?

 

last night’s loves

be patient, the best things happen at night

~

last night she realised that he never looked into her eyes

but she was happy he was staring at her deep cleavage instead

~

I love you…..’ she said softly, ‘please take your clothes off for me…..’

‘these aren’t clothes…..’ he replied

‘you’re a werewolf at night, are’t you?’ she asked excitedly

~

she came, and then

she came to the conclusion that car sex was much safer late at night

~

at midnight all she had left were half-remembered thoughts of love

~

last night, when he said he wanted to sleep with her

she expected him to stay awake for a while first

~

last night she wanted him

she wanted him to leave her alone

in a bar, very close to midnight

the black widow searched for her next victim

her eyes spoke to his soul

behind her beautiful eyes lay secrets darker and deeper than the sea

~

 

it took me years to realise

that much to my surprise

I could find paradise in her eyes

 

~

her beautiful blue eyes enraptured his heart
