a few answers

well i only got questions from princess mindy. her questions:
what is you favorite food thing to make?
good question, although there is really not just one answer. most of my favorites are attached to memories, for example i love to make pecan pies, i don't eat them, but i love to make them. they were one of the first things i learned how to bake. by the time i was monkey's age i was responsible for the pecan pie at gatherings. i love to make sugar cookies, they remind me of my friend bonnie, who i miss terrible. tamales are probably the closest i can get to a fave food to make. we started the tradition of tamale christmas when monkey was 1 month old. they bring back many happy memories, and as she gets older she helps make the tamales.

what would you fix for me if i was coming to dinner?
another excellent question. if you were coming around christmas you would get tamales by default, but you would also get homemade sangria. any other time of the year you would get what was served. just kidding. if you were coming for some form of family gathering you'd probably get chicken tacos, homemade tortillas, homemade refried beans, and all the other trimmings. i hear you like red velvet cake, which happens to be my favorite as well, so we'd probably have one of those. well as long as you don't ask me to put cream cheese icing on it. i hate cream cheese. truth be known if we're having guests i usually ask if they have a request for dinner and fix that, as long as it isn't something really gross like liver and onions, i just can't go there.

well those were the only questions i received. although she will probably kill me i did want to let everyone know that pattylicious is having twins. i can't tell you how excited i am. i figure that if she's having twins then i don't have to. also if anyone knows where i can purchase ceramic slip in the local area i would appreciate a heads up. we are trying to get our craftiness for christmas started. if anyone else has a question let me know and i will do my best to get to it.

Ok, if you could name on regret, and you can't go with that BS of I have no regrets...what would it be and if you were magically taken back in time and you know what you know now...would you change the things that you did?
