Yep! I'm donezo with the holiday shopping! Hoorah! I've finished the last bits o' shopping oh about two and a half weeks ago! Hip hip! Hooray! But that doesn't mean that I'm immune from the holiday frenzy 'cause frankly, the holiday madness is about to swallow me whole!! Anyway, the daily hoopla is the main reason why I've been so darn blogligent lately. Everytime a blog-worthy thought pops into my head, I find myself with a sinkful of dishes, a living room to tidy, or Mr. Sandman is calling out to me. So sorry!
Well, I've been staring at this blank blog page for a bit now, and I'm still waiting for some amazing blog-worthy thought to fly into my head. But, er, that's not happenin'. So instead of boring you with the story of how one of my kids bit me yesterday, how 'bout a contest?! Last year I had y'all guess how many 44 oz jars of peanut butter we might eat in a year, so I thought I'd up the ante and move up to KETCHUP. Yep, the red stuff.
Alison and Henry recently discovered ketchup, and wow! it goes with everything! Yes, it goes with the typical stuff like fries and burgers, but it also compliments other goodies like chicken dinos (thank you Costco), rice, corn dogs, mac and cheese. Okay, enough peering into my kids' healthy eating habits. . . and let's move onto the fun stuff, shall we?
How many 66 ounce bottles o' ketchup do you think my kids will polish off in a year? Go on take a guess! To give you a fairly good idea of how large a 66 oz. bottle is. . . just imagine that the bat broke at your son's birthday party, and the wee guests are eager to knock the lights out of the candy filled piñata. What do you grab first? Yep, that 66 oz. bottle of ketchup. That's what. Okay, not the best example, but I think you get the picture.
So, please dear readers. Go on and guess. . . .
