Before I dive into today’s post, I want to make sure you got yourself a good helping of Saturday Jambalaya. Lots of info there that you don’t want to miss!
On with Sunday’s post…..I confess, I was a Dirty Dancing addict (My name is Greta and I watched DD hundreds of times – you respond “Hi Greta”). I was deeply saddened to learn that Patrick Swayze is battling terminal cancer. So… this post is dedicated to a real manly man who I always liked. Maybe I’ll sit on the couch all day and have a Ghost, Road house, and Dirty Dancing marathon while shoveling in bonbons.

Daquiris and Cream was filled with the widest array of people just out to have a good time and to DANCE!! REALLY DANCE!!!!

I had a great time and realized my boys need to learn to dance if they want to woo the women with more than their looks and charming personalities. I may have been bitten by the dancing bug – ruh roh! I leave you with the most famous Dirty Dancing clip and my favorite SNL clip with Chris Farley & Patrick Swayze trying out for Chippendales (both safe for children).
As always, you can get 2 helpings of KMG per day, which is recommended by 4 out of 5 doctors. The 5th doctor doesn’t have a sense of humor. Read it once at NOLA.com and then at Kiss My Gumbo.com (which is real purty).
