Share food related things with me!

I have an 8 pound pork butt in my fridge and don't have a clue what to do with it. I'm going to have fun figuring it out! Maybe roast it on day one, have pulled pork on day 2, and then figure out the rest...
We have a Super Bowl Party to attend that's a potluck. We were going to have our own party, but MrC's friend sent out the invite first. I was going to go ahead and have our party too, but I didn't want to be unfair to MrC's friend. If you could choose a party where you have to bring a dish and the host said they were only providing utensils versus a party where you could just bring yourself and you've had the hostess' banging food before, where would you be? Exactly. I think I'm going to take Cajun Rice to the party- as soon as I learn how to make it.
I have some cornish hens marinating at home that I'm going to bake tonight and serve with mashed potatoes and  broccoli...when I get home at 10 pm. The pictures look so good I'll probably cry if mine comes out gross.
I've been making s'mores for dessert all week. Take out a graham cracker, add a few chocolate chips, a few mini marshmallows and sit it in the oven for a few minutes (but not under the broiler, that didn't work too well) and you have a single serve snack! Oh how I love it. I also have a s'mores maker with the tray and little pot, but that's for travelling s'mores.
Tomorrow I'm going to make Alton Brown's recipe for enchilada lasagna. I'd link to the recipe, but I hate Food Network's website so much and I don't feel like going back to it.
For Valentine's day I'm going to hand out *hopefully* Princess and the Frog cards (backup: any cartoon with a brown face) and cookies at work. I'm going to wrap it up all pretty too. Maybe I'll even be on time for work that day (12th) and have them on their desk's when they get in. Then again, I have been coughing a lot so people may not want to eat my cookies. Nevermind, the other day somebody sat 12 random cupcakes on a table (no tray, no covering, no note saying who put them there, or even a flavor) and these nasty suckers ate them all up. I could probably pull a cookie from my shoe and they'd eat it.
