On the heels of party number one, party number two is scheduled for this afternoon. Why so soon? Here are some hints:
I live my best life now
I stay present
Dr. Oz and the purple gloves...
Yes, I am an Oprah watcher.
I wasn’t always. When I stopped working full time, a great friend of mine recommended Oprah, but I was adamant that I would never become a member of the cult. I vowed to never begin my sentences with ‘Oprah said’ or ‘I saw on Oprah.’ It started out slow, but quickly took on a life of its own. Soon I was de-cluttering, taking e- classes, and quoting Suze Orman (people, money, things)! For party #2 I am hosting a mom’s play date. Three moms and four children, will meet at 4:00 this afternoon for the Oprah season premiere: the exclusive interview with Whitney Houston.
In January 2009 Oprah came clean about her recent weight gain. Apparently it was due to thyroid and her own nemesis: Red Hot Blue Chips. Combine this with our formerly drugged out diva and we have the following:
Tortilla Soup with Roasted Chicken and Red Hot Blue Chip Shards
Salad with Avocado Dressing and Pont L’eveque Cheese
(We all know Whitney ate a few brownies over the years. These brownies are safe for the kids.)
What to feed these kids? To avoid cooking separate meals, I have a plan to use the ingredients above to make plates that even a finicky two year old can’t resist. So, armed with new crayons and obnoxiously large coloring books, us moms hope to enjoy a glass of wine, some soup and salad while we contemplate if we too are every woman.
