Top Ten {Tuesday}: Things You Wish You Could See Right Now

Today I have a puzzle for you. You read all of my Top Ten list and then guess what I’m doing today. Ready? Here are your clues:


1. Three crockpots plugged in and sitting on the floor of my kitchen.

2. One crockpot filled with 4 pounds of sausage.

3. Two crockpots filled to the brim with potatoes. Like with their skins on. They are baking.

4. Two bunches of cilantro that I am meticulously peeling off the stem and chopping into itty bitty pieces with my new Froggy.

5. Eighteen pounds of raw chicken piled up in my refrigerator.

6. Three cups of chopped ham. And about 3 more cups of chopped ham. And about 3 more cups of unchopped ham. There’s a lot of ham.

7. Two gallons of juice: one apple, one tomato. (*gag*)

8. Two gallon ziploc bags filled to we-can-barely-zip-them with sliced mushrooms. (*double gag*)

9. Giant pot of soaking black beans. (thanks, Amy!)

10. My soon to be full full full full freezer!!

So, any guesses to what I’m doing today? That’s right! Staci and I are doing some once-a-month cooking with the help of our favorite friend and long-distance sisterchick, Tricia from Once A Month Mom. We’re doing the April menu today. I might be a little quiet on twitter today but I’ll get to tweeting and commenting on your posts as soon as my freezer is full! In my stead, feel free to tweet and stumble your friends posts to your heart’s content. I know they’d love it!

    And I’m SUPER impressed with your once a month mad skillz. (Oh yes I did use a “z”.) I’ve studied Tricia’s site dozens of times, but I’m still a little too intimidated. Maybe soon. As soon as I get over the idea of crockpots full of sausage.

  22. Hi Amanda – after lurking around here for a few months now, this is my first time joining in on the Top 10 meme/carnival. I love it!! Great concept!! So fun reading everybodys…this weeks list is particularly enjoyable – perhaps because it seems that I’m not the only person in a springy frame of mind! You’ve got me intrigued now with this once a month cooking idea…I’ve been talking to my sister about it and I’m gearing up for my own attempt…thanks for sharing, and thanks for hosting! 🙂

  23. With immense pride I wholeheartedly recommend the website to all those who are searching for quality Backlink Diversity that will knock out google panda and penguin crush your competition and catapult your website to the first page of Google search engine. I am extremely happy and impressed with their professional, prompt and dedicated services. So go online and explore the web now.

  24. Everything posted was actually very logical. But, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier title? I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t solid, however suppose you added a headline to possibly grab folk’s attention? I mean Top Ten {Tuesday}: Things You Wish You Could See Right Now | is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article titles to get people interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.

  25. Thank you for the awesome article! Will be back for more..
