Oh my gosh, this is the busiest time of year ever. For the love, I’m a chicken with it’s head cut off. And my son doesn’t even do sports! How do you soccer moms do it?
I’ll be honest — I do not thrive in chaos. I retreat and hide and try to clean everything in order to restore peace to my soul. Also, wine.
Hey — do you ever think that it’s possible that they will make Capri Suns that have wine inside of them? Not for me, obviously. Just for other people who like wine. Thinking out loud here, that’s all.
I know we have talked about his before (have we? I think we have) but social media is getting pretty awful at helping me show you my new recipes and stuff. So if you’re cool with missing stuff, that’s perfect. You’re all set! But if you’re NOT cool with missing stuff, make sure you’re subscribing through a reader or email so that everything gets to you and isn’t filtered out by Mark Zuckerberg. Also sometimes I send out photos of baby kittens in my newsletter, so you’re welcome.
Actually I have never done that. But I guess I could, if we all decided we wanted it to be a thing? Think about it.
There are little things in my sidebar (to your right…or on the bottom if you’re on a smartphone) where you can subscribe to a reader or via email, OR you can subscribe to my newsletter which is that link up at the top of this page. My newsletter comes out once a week and has a blurb and link to each post, so you can pick which you want to visit and which you want to ignore.
Did you watch Sons of Anarchy this week? I can’t handle that this is the last season. I can’t. Also, why do I want Juice to die but also I don’t? I feel like I need a therapist just dedicated to my SOA feelings. Is that a justifiable expense? Could I somehow write it off on my taxes? I am thinking yes.
I shared some mighty fine recipes this week! Did you miss them?
Have you ever wanted to dip a cake in melted butter and then coat it in cinnamon sugar? If so, this Pumpkin Churro Cake is for you!
I shared the story of how I met my husband! And then a bunch of you shared the stories of how you met YOUR husband! And I loved reading them so much. We need to talk about stuff like that more often.
These Pumpkin Cheesecakes are basically perfect. They bake up like a dream!
Good news — not all Christmas gifts need to cost five thousand dollars and have a touch screen! I’m sharing our favorite NON Electronic gifts — these are all ones that my son has received and played the death right out of. His friends have always loved them too — several of them are our go-to birthday gifts.
Don’t forget to pop over and enter to win one of TWO Blendtec Blenders. These are the BEST blenders around — I wish I had one!
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
