Tamale Gluttony & a little Christmas Spirit

OMG! Denis and I are suffering from a bad, bad case of Christmas Eve tamale gluttony. The man was unstoppable last night, this morning and this afternoon (probably a dozen himself). We also managed to hijack a few dozen out of his grandma's house. Nothing like stealing tamales from an 83 year old woman to get you in the Christmas spirit!

We are most definitely hitting the gym after the said tamales, and all the SHIT I made!

4 batches of WTF Peanut Brittle
3 batches of gut-busting Rocky Road
2 batches of ass-sticking Dill Crackers
1 batch of stupid Peppermint Bark
Chocolate covered pretzels


Merry Christmas,
The Stuffed Shefferd's and Jake too!

Bread, Bread Anyone need some Bread?

For those of you who know me really well, you know that I am a bargin shopper, a coupon cutter and a deal seeker! This morning TOPPED ALL!

6:00am - Alarm goes off (This Sheff doesn't like mornings ... keep that in mind)

6:20am - In line ... where in the hell is she in line at 6:20am??? Well, I was one of those idiots in line at Boudin SF (a new restaurant in San Marcos). Just call me Number 55!

6:45am - Freezing my ass off. It was 44 degrees for god sake!

7:15am - I bargin with the kid in front of me. He is to walk to Starbucks to get me a latte and in return I will by him a coffee. That little turd bought a grande latte for himself!

8:00am - Work conference call while waiting patiently in line

8:45am - We are to line up in numerical order

9:00am - The doors open!

9:20am - Driving home with a loaf of bread, 365 coupons for free bread, a keychain all wrapped up in a cute little bucket.


Boudin Bread Co. had their grand opening in San Marcos this morning. This is the company that had the novel idea of Clam Chowder in a bread bowl in San Fran back in 1849. Okay, maybe the bread bowl idea was later, but the San Fran sourdough 1849.

The first 100 people in line today received a full years supply of bread. I was thinking maybe a loaf a week ... man was I wrong. I am now the proud owner of 365 (plus a few more for good measure) certificates for bread.

Apparently the first person in line got there at 8:30pm last night, tent and all. Now, I might be stupid but I am not that stupid.

Looks like everyone is getting bread for Christmas!
