Heah, I know what ya' Folks are thinkin'...Ya'ain't quite ready for the holidays just yet.  It's WAY too early for that, right?  Well, Imma be real honest, and tell ya' that Imma right there with ya'!
I ain't no different then ya'll on this one.  I usually work fairly late on Christmas Eve, taking care of orders, in the Greater Toronto Area, with my own Christmas tree usually in a 'half way up / half way down' sort of state, all throughout the month of December.  
I've had that shocking moment, in the midst of filling orders, when I realized if I did not drop what I was doing, at that moment, and run to Toys R Us, Santa would not be 'visting' my daughter, and I, would not be receiving my 'Mom of the Year' Award, at all.  
I have even opened my own fridge on Christmas Day, to find I forgot to defrost my own turkey!  
Nope, I ain't makin' this stuff up.  So, let's not all be confused, thinkin' Imma super organized woman, here, in Mississippi Queen Foods Land, when it comes to the holidays.  I'm not.  I will admit, I am in denial, they are quickly upon us, as well.  
Maybe it's because I've been receivin' so many holiday promotions, in my own email inbox, and I started feelin' a bit guilty, and a bit like a slacker, because I had not sent out any myself.  So, get ready, ya'll, here it's my best pitch at promotin' and sellin' ya' somethin' because it's Happy Holidays Time!........
I'll let ya' in on a lil secret, and tell ya' what a few of my clients do, for their holiday gifting....they 
actually send a lil note to me, of all the folks, on their list, asking me to make some Pecan Pralines for a few of them, and boxes of Red Velvet Cupcakes for some of the others, Southern Pecan Pies go to this one,Pecan Pralines $25 per box and that one....a few even get Southern Groceries all packaged together for someone real good on their list....and I have all my holiday ribbons and decorations, so I can make all this stuff look extra purty for 'em.    
I show up at their place, or they pick it all up from me, and then they just go 'round and drop it all off....or, sit at home and eat it up themselves, cuz maybe they done went and lied to me, 'bout it all bein' gifts...who knows!  All I know is they ain't all stressed out, when I get there....maybe I mighta been a lil stressed out on the other side, but we ain't gonna talk 'bout that....maybe they kinda smart.....just sayin'.....
Red Velvet Cupcakes $35 per box / 24 standard cupcakesOk, Folks, that's the end of my holiday promotin', but ya' know Imma be back, again, talkin' 'bout this, once time starts runnin' out, and I know ya'll be all stressed out, in need of some desparate gift suggestions.  I am out on deliveries, in the Greater Toronto Area, for anyone who would like to have the Pecan Pralines; Red Velvet cupcakes; and the Southern Pecan Pies, delivered to the special peoople on your lists, around the Greater Toronto Area.  I can ship theSouthern Pecan Pie $25 for one pie / $20 each for two or more Southern Groceries, all across Canada...just sayin'    
Just remember, the Mississippi Queen's here to help!
Wishin' ya' 'Peas on Earth' this holiday season, and lots of good eatin'!
Best Wishes, 
Connie Rouble,
The Mississippi Queen
