Walking Together


Together… we went to a taco place and ate some tacos.

Afterwards, we walked further down main street and visited a bakery.

The bakery had cupcakes, fruit pies, cookies, cream puffs, and eclairs. We were certainly full from the tacos but managed to keep a little part of our appetite wanting something sweet.

We both decided to buy different things. I had the fruit tart and my friend had a cream puff. But, we both knew that we’d be sharing each one. So it didn’t matter. 

This walk down main street was a perfect way to spend the day together.


Chrissy Teigen’s lost sparkle

I am going to go out on a limb and say that Chrissy Teigen has lost her eye sparkle.

Instead, she has a far away worried look in her eyes.  

There’s a name for it.

It’s called the “my life is over now.. I have to worry 24/7 about being a mama now.”  

All mother’s have it… unless they are heavily involved with nannies.  

That means anything she does in the public eye ..like half naked selfies and wearing braless tops will eventually effect her daughter.

So…. half dressed Chrissy is now a sad mama who likes to dine out a lot at restaurants.

I think it’s sad.

Where’s my preggo fun Chrissy?


Prop food or Real food?

The SAG awards were on last night and it was the biggest snooze fest around.

But, I only have one question. Was the food at the guests tables to be eaten or was it just “prop food”?


Homemade Apple Crisp only feeds Two

Why is it when you decide to make an apple crisp…  and cut up 6 apples and mix all the dry ingredients…it looks like it can only feed two people?


That’s all.



Staying home alone wasn’t such a good idea!


The Home Alone movie franchise is celebrating it’s 25th film anniversary.

According to the Daily Mail,  the cute star Macaulay Culkin has led an adventurous life since the film was released.

I skipped through a lot of the tidbits from the article.

However, the article was keen on showing recent pics of some of the stars and how they look now compared to then.

Those type of comparisons are always disappointing.

It is 25 years later for goodness sakes!  

Macaulay looked surprisingly  worse for the wear.  Sadly his heroin addiction took hold of his youthful looks.

This is a snippet:

…”The late 1990s were relatively inactive for Macaulay and, even after returning to acting in 2000, the majority of his onscreen roles since have been cameos with the exception of a handful of movie roles. His biggest acting role of the past decade has been his voice work for animated comedy program Robot Chicken.”

The article continued with describing Culkin’s not so healthy lifestyle choices:

“…the actor, who is now 35, reportedly struggled with a drug addiction. In 2012, he was said to be close to death as he battled a devastating heroin addiction…..”

…”Although he managed to clean himself up, he reportedly replaced drugs with smoking up to 60 cigarettes a day, leading to new health fears for the troubled star.”

Ugh….I guess staying home alone (like in the movie ) wasn’t a good idea after all.

Alright….I know it’s was just a movie.


Farmers Market donuts

The only thing fun at a famers market are the homemade donuts.

I am not interested in guitar string jewelry, or homemade soaps, or bushels of lettuce.

I am only interested in the apple cider sugar donuts and a cup of hot cider.


Farmers Market donuts are pretty tasty.

Boo Mix is full of Ghost Poop

I felt very Halloween-y today and decided to make a fun,  festive food treat made of ghost poop.

It’s called BOO MIX and sometimes MONSTER MIX.

Boo Mix consists of:

  1. Candy corn    (GOBLIN TEETH)
  2. Mini marshmallows   (GHOST POOP)
  3. Golden graham cereal  (MUMMY SCABS)
  4. Chocolate chips.   (WITCHES WARTS)

You mix about 1/2 cup each in a ziploc bag or festive treat bag and tie it up.

It turned out to be a pretty good treat to eat while watching TV or just walking outside during a fall day.

Which got me to thinking, why would anyone want to eat ghost poop, goblin teeth, witches warts, or mummy scabs?

Those items in real life would be pretty disgusting.

Caitlyn Jenner should go on a Yacht, too.

Bravo TV….. thank you.

Now that the I am Cait series is over, I have managed to replace the emptiness of that show with another show.

Except this new show has nothing to do with freaky trans things.

It does, however, have yachts and 20 somethings and fun, drinking, and colorful guests.

Yes, Bravo TV has done it again with its new season of Below Deck, season 3.

Below Deck has some soap opera drama, some playful story lines, some hunky staff and of course lots of inside drama of yachty chefs not getting along with yachty Stews.

The only thing that would make this show explosive is if Cailtyn Jenner starred as one of the special guests on the yacht with her trans friends.

Now, that would be something to see! But sadly, Cait might have issues dressing up in a bathing suit.  And last I heard, you need to love hot tubs and jet skiing and swimming in the Caribbean to enjoy a yacht.

A bowl of cereal is better in the morning

When it comes to picking out a breakfast item in the morning, especially on rushed days, I always go for a bowl of cereal.

I sometimes make an egg or some pancakes, but those take a lot of time and prep work.  Plus, it also leaves dirty dishes to clean and that’s like the LAST thing I want to worry about in the morning. Sadly, sometimes the dinner plates are still waiting for me in the sink.  Ugh.  I call that kitchen laziness, or “watching some TV show last night that was far more important than washing a frying pan.”

Cereal falls into two categories:

  1. Healthy.
  2. Not so healthy.

The temptation of picking out the Apple Jacks over the Cheerios is pretty strong.  I am not able to make sound decisions at 7am in the morning.

Cereal companies know this because all the fun cereals have bright colors, or a cute leprechaun or happy something smirking through the box.

The box is saying make a bad choice.  Go for it.

Sadly, the healthy Cheerios or Honey Bunches of Oats, or boring bran flakes are subtle and contain images of grains,  or bowls of cereal,  or big letters that say healthy eating, less calories,and lots of fiber.  Those are super serious themes.

That’s right.  Healthy cereals mean business.  Nothing cheerful.  Nothing full of sugars.  All full of health in a bowl.

But I like eating a bowl of brightly colored orange and green rings.  That pop of color gets my mornings moving!

Cornbread for dessert

images (1)Is cornbread from the bread family, or is it considered a cake?

I purchased some already made cornbread with blueberries in it, and I am convinced that it’s not really apart of the bread family.

It falls more into the category of cakes and desserts.

What other bread items are judged as dessert?:

  1. Blueberry muffins:  They are sweet like a cake, so they really aren’t a side dish to a salad.
  2. Apple cinnamon muffins:  Again, another sweet dessert type.
  3. Cinnamon rolls:  uh…should never be a bread option at the table.
  4. Coffee cake..  not bread. It’s cake.
  5. Banana bread:  sweet, dense, dessert-like..can be eaten alone with a glass of milk.
