Now What Am I Forgetting?

 There are around 12 of us that meet
in a little quilt group in Mesa once a month.
We each sign up to provide lunch 
for our gathering,
and January was my month.
 I knew exactly what I wanted to cook for
 these wonderful ladies.
My friend Cindy Harris
shared a recipe
on her cooking blog
Everyday Insanity
I think I sang out load
the first time I tasted it.
I've made it 3 times in the last month
for various gatherings.
 Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum!
It's a 30 minute meal that is easy to make
with ingredients available in most grocery stores.
You can find the recipe
on Cindy's blog.
 Because our group meets in a church
I needed to bring everything with me to fix the meal.
I thought I was 
so prepared.
I was ready for 
PRESENTATION!
All of the ingredients were chopped in advance.
I brought every utensil 
I could think of.
But, as I walked out the door,
this little feeling kept popping up.
Now What Am I Forgetting?
I went through my list twice.
Check
Check 
 The Mandarin Orange and Green Salad was all made.
Check
 The Cherry Comfort Bars were baked,
(another delicious recipe from Cindy)
and I even remembered a spatula.
Hmmmm....
That feeling kept pestering away...
The ladies arrived,
chatting happily
 and began commenting on the wonderful smells 
wafting from the kitchen.
I smiled.
I was ready for 
PRESENTATION!
Then I looked down and 
noticed I was still wearing 
my old worn out
frumpy
 house slippers.
(Tell me I'm not the only one who has done this)
