Holiday Greetings & Bacon Salt

Dear Y'all,

I hope Hanukkah was a wonderful time for everybody and that this Christmas will be the most joyous ever. I swear, if I could find a living tree big enough, I would keep my Christmas tree up all year long—I never get tired of sitting on the sofa with only the tree lights for illumination, mouth-breathing at my glorious Christmas tree. With literally ALL my cooking done for Christmas Breakfast (see The Sweet Potato Queens’ Big Ass Cookbook and Financial Planner for the menu!)—I am actually relaxing and resting!

I remember this time last year, y’all were helping my church, Wells United Methodist, raise money to buy toys for the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, for the Katrina Kids.  For any newcomers to the Queendom, you need to know that—thanks to the Queens all over the world—literally EVERY SINGLE child on the Coast who needed help—got it. Over 8,000 toys were given out and really good ones, too—bicycles and Game Boys and the like!  It was TRULY a Christmas miracle and I’ll never forget it—those kids will never forget it. God love you for it.

The National Promotional Tour for The Sweet Potato Queens’ Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit begins January 3rd, at my home book store, LEMURIA BOOKS, and then we (me and Kyle and Sostie and BD) will hit the road in another wrapped Big A** Bus. For you audio buffs, please click here to pre-order the Unabridged Version. Please check the Jan/Feb ’08 calendar (be sure you change the year to 2008) and come see us if you can! We will also be celebrating the PAPERBACK RELEASE of The Sweet Potato Queens’ Wedding Planner and Divorce Guide so we’re doubly excited! Come pose for photos with me by the Big A** Bus—and don’t forget to wear your sparkliest!

Ok, I’m sorry I didn’t find this for you in time for Christmas—but it sure will brighten up your NEW YEAR—it is nothing short of a miracle and it is BACON SALT!!!!!!!!  Imagine it—the stuff is VEGETARIAN, KOSHER, CALORIE-FREE, LOW IN SODIUM AND IT MAKES EVERYTHING IT TOUCHES TASTE JUST LIKE BACON!

How can this be, you ask?  I do not know and I do not care—all I know is IT IS WONDERFUL! You can sprinkle just a touch on food before serving—or cook with it—for a fabulous BACON flavor—with NO pig-related consequences! We gotta get Kacey Jones to write a song about it! Get some, right here, right NOW—and be sure to e-mail me with what-all you like to put it on and/or in—I’ll share your BACON SALT ideas with the Queendom—YUM!

Write to me anytime at hrhjill@sweetpotatoqueens.com —with funny stories, GOOD OBITUARIES, and/or Questions about Life Itsownself—I'm often wrong, but NEVER IN DOUBT!

Merry Almost Christmas and of course
