Now this is something the kids would love!
- Cut bagel in half.
- Put bagel in toaster for 1-2 minutes. (lightly toast it…be careful not to burn!)
- Get cream cheese out of the fridge.
- Stare in utter disappointment at the empty container.
- Rejoice because you’ve lived with these two boys & handsome man of your dreams for so long you’re prepared for moments like this.
- Grab the bigger container of cream cheese you bought yesterday as a back up plan & spread on the AWESOMENESS.
- Enjoy bagel!
Here is my refrigerator. The handle is beautifully decorated with a fluffy Christmas blanky. How this appliance has become an extra storage space is something I can’t explain. I’ve previously shared some of the random contents my lovely boys have left behind. In case you missed it here are the links.
Last night was no different. In the time it took me to make homemade buttercream frosting the blanky was tied to the handle and a surprise was waiting for me on the fridge door.
Poor “Omaha” the reindeer. Aaron said “he needed some cold time”. As always there’s never a dull moment around here 🙂
Tonight I tried. I tried to prepare dinner at home for the kids. My husband went to choir rehearsal and I bought some steaks to cook a decent meal. On a normal week night we are rushed and due to a lack of planning we’ll end up driving by a fast food joint for dinner.
I have this gigantic fear of serving meat that isn’t quite done yet. After I cook the meat I attack it until I’m 100% sure it’s not still breathing. In doing so I let out any flavor (another issue I need to work on is seasoning) and it looks like a rabid animal got a hold of it by the time it hits the dinner table.

They were done…
My husband tasted it when he got home and said, “mmm…you made jerky.”
I’m disappointed with my “jerky” but surprisingly the children loved it. Isaiah asked for more.
While eating my share of the shoe leather I did a little more research. I looked up cooking “thin T-bone steaks” on YouTube before going back into the kitchen. A couple of Gordon Ramsay’s videos later this is what I cooked up…
It looked more appealing. It was edible. It was actually really good.
Best part was…my husband liked it too 🙂
I took a long lunch break to get Thanksgiving essentials the day before we celebrate. I have walked aggressively in heels for over an hour gathering what we need. I place the last item in my cart when….the fire alarm goes off. Continue reading
