(This is my first video - using my cellphone. I apologize, it's not the highest quality . Click on the arrow to listen )
This is Shawney and Bill. Our own Irish piano bar without the piano. Believe it or not, they weren't even drunk. Shawney doesn't drink..just loves to sing.
I have alot to learn on videotaping - like to NOT TALK while I'm filming. Bare with me, I am new to all of this.
I thought they were finished. So, you missed the part where Shawney turns around and points to everyone singing names like flanigan, hanigan, sheninagan really fast. (ok, so I may not have the names right..but if you have ever been to a irish pub, you know what I'm talking about).. ok.. so now they are finished.
(Now this is my 2nd attempt of videotaping. Again to listen, click on the arrow)
This is Ryan and Brian (a family friend - new to our Thanksgiving) both carving turkeys for the first time. I am using the video recorder from my Sprint Treo - so it's not the sharpest video or it could be that I'm not a very good videographer. As you will see as I take a bite of turkey and lose focus of the carvers. (Also, I think I had a couple beers already because I found EVERYTHING soooo funny!!! )

2 cans Green Giant Mexicorn
16 ounce Light Sour Cream
1 cup mayo
1/2 bunch of cilantro
4-5 chopped green onions
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 cup grated sharp cheddar
1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
Drain corn; mix sour cream, mayo, cayenne pepper and cumin. Add chopped green onions, cilantro and grated cheese. Chill ofr a least a hour before serving. Serve with corn chips, lime flavored tostitos, or wheat thin crackers.
(Note - use grated cheese - not finely shredded. Also, to make it less spicy - substitute a cup of sharp cheddar for the pepper jack cheese)
Ok, so now for some tv trivia.

I can't believe 4 and 1/2 years have gone by. It seems like it was literally just yesterday when I drove him to Lubbock his Freshman year.
I'm feeling very introspective and weepy today. Probably because he is coming home tonight for Thanksgiving. It's funny, when you raise your kids - doing laundry, cleaning up after them, cooking dinner, etc. are chores every parent dreads doing. When your kid goes off to college, it's like you can't wait for them to come home so you can do their laundry, clean up after them, and cook all their favorite foods. What's up with that? Ryan won't be home until almost midnight, but I plan on having cheese and corn enchiladas ready and waiting - fresh out of the oven. Isn't that what any normal mom would do?

While Tech was playing, the Dallas Stars lost to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 2-1. Poor Stars - just can't seem to rally this season.
On the other hand, my 'boys won today beating San Francisco. The Cowboys were favored to win, but 1st quarter looked a little shaky. They pulled it out during 2nd quarter... beating the 49ers 35-22.
The Giants and the Redskins won today. Giants leading the division with the Cowboys tied with Washington. The Eagles seemed to have lost their mojo.. so not really worried about them.
Cowboys play Seattle on Thanksgiving. They should win -but they are still very unpredictable. The Giants and the Redskins play next Sunday. Next week will be one step closer for the Cowboys to make the playoffs - depending the outcome of these games.
Blackened Shrimp At Central Market yesterday, I was given a sample plate with steak, shrimp, and a salad. The shrimp ...
