“I just love you so, so much.”
“I love you too, Sug.”
“I’m so glad, Honey. One more thing though, if I may.”
“Yes, Love Muffin?”
“Now, you know I love you, right?”
“Well, you’ve got about a half a pound of butter on your face right now. Puddin’ Pop.”
I will admit, I’m feeling a little cracked out right now.
For one thing, I am old. For another, I went to a midnight showing of The Muppets movie last night. I got home late, crawled into bed, woke up to a sick dog and I’ve been in the kitchen ever since. I’m not going to lie- if you told me tomorrow was St. Patrick’s Day, I very well may believe you.
A quickie recipe for you today as you’re scrambling around for last-minute touches to your fantastic Thanksgiving feast (unless you’re not in America and tomorrow is, simply, Thursday. This recipe still works.) Two things you’re likely to have on hand- butter and honey. Combine them, spoon the lot into a little mason jar or shiny bowl, and serve them with your biscuits, your cornbread or a leftover crescent roll. It’s little touches like these that let the people you love know that you love them- that you think they’re special and deserving of these little moments of surprising sweetness. Love is in the details.
We’re thankful for you this year.
Happy Thanksgiving from Some Kitchen Stories.
