Having it your way?

I wrote this for a Facebook status, but I didn’t include the strangest part. After the man finished getting dressed in the parking lot, he went inside TO WORK. Yes indeed, he’d been getting his Burger King uniform on in full view of the lunch-rush drive-thru line at said restaurant. By the way, witnessing thatContinue reading “Having it your way?”

Spaghetti Squash in the Crockpot

I’ve been seeing this on pinterest and wondered if it would really work: To be honest, it looks bogus. Just put the whole thing in the crockpot with some water for a couple of hours? That’s it? But I hate slicing a giant raw squash (It hurts my weak American arms) so I tried it.Continue reading “Spaghetti Squash in the Crockpot”

Cookie dough to eat? YES thank you!

I found a recipe on pinterest for cookie dough that is solely to EAT and not to bake. It has no eggs, so there is no fear of salmonella. Not that I’ve ever been particularly afraid of salmonella. See my traditional stance on the eating of raw dough here. But here’s the recipe: Cookie DoughContinue reading “Cookie dough to eat? YES thank you!”

Sausage Florentine Potpie

This recipe (modified from tasteofhome/simple) was delicious. The best thing about it was that the big kids ate the leftovers the next day too. (Seriously!! Like they heated it up in the microwave and ate it after school!!) 1 lb sausage  1-2 tsp dried onion flakes 3 tsp minced garlic from the jar 1 can creamContinue reading “Sausage Florentine Potpie”

This ain’t no “Thinwich”

I bought some sandwich pita bread at the store. “Only 100 calories!” the package exclaimed happily. So I made a delicious sandwich with it at home. Using diet bread and lean turkey ought to make up for slathering on the cheese, butter and bacon, right? Right? By the way, it was delicious! I recommend theContinue reading “This ain’t no “Thinwich””

The best chocolate cake ever

I made chocolate cake for my book club meeting. My friend Renita gave me the recipe. She said it was called “Better-Than-Sex Chocolate Cake.” I’ll call it Renita’s Cake. We have to keep our “G” ratings around here. When I first tried the cake, I was suspicious, because it doesn’t have any icing. I don’tContinue reading “The best chocolate cake ever”

As if I weren’t already crazy

Little Girl, my five-year-old, was eating a soft taco from Taco Bell in front of the TV. (No one can say I don’t feed my kids the best around here!) While I wasn’t looking, she started picking off the shredded lettuce and tossing it, piece by piece, on the living room floor. It’s like sheContinue reading “As if I weren’t already crazy”
