So we took the dog to the vet the other day.
And I’d been kind of thinking she was getting a little pudgy because whenever you looked at her from above she looked kind of…tubular. Like a tube sock, or a sausage in its casing. Pretty sure dogs are not supposed to look like that.
And I [...]
Do you ever think that Bill and Hilary look around at their lives and all they’ve accomplished and say, “Yeah, but when is Chelsea gonna give us a grandkid?”
The other day I was, for some reason, going to link to the Thai Red Curry recipe I had posted on this site. That I was sure I had posted to this site because we make it so often, how could it be possible that I had, actually, never posted it?
Because after much searching and [...]
Andy went out of town for the weekend. Three days he was gone, and in that time I started talking to the dog; tried to rescue an injured feral cat that clearly did not want to be rescued despite his piteous yowling & three-legged hobbling; and I tried to make friends with the crows by [...]
Me: I thought Randy Jackson was a country singer.
My Guy: No. Randy Travis and Alan Jackson are country singers.
Me: Oh. Then who’s Randy Jackson? A baseball player?
My Guy: I think you mean Reggie Jackson.
Later that week:

My Guy: No. It’s like [...]
I wish I could say that I was a master of tofu recipes, a guru of soybean curd cookery.
And I wish I could also say that I loved tofu every time I ate it, in every permutation.
And while there are so many different things you can do with it—burgers! stir-fries! vegan cheesecakes!—most all of these [...]
If you are my neighbor, specifically my neighbor on the south side of the house, I would just like to let you know that I am not, in fact, growing marijuana. But I am worried that you might assume so given all the cords and grow lights and seedling flats so clearly visible in the [...]
We make a lot of pasta around here. And we also make a lot of casseroles.
So it seems only natural that we’d end up making baked pasta casseroles, too.
One of the first dishes I ever learned to make was lasagna. I mean, how hard is it, really? Lasagna just falls into the ‘tedious’ rather than [...]
Pretty certain I will never be a hand model as there is always dirt under my fingernails. Sorry.
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, geez, couldn’t you have posted this recipe before the Superbowl, so that I could’ve had something easy and delicious to eat while we watched the game commercials?
My Guy: Did I ever tell you about the time I found a person’s leg at the landfill?
Me: Oh my god, you found what? A leg? A human leg, like a murder victim?
My Guy: No, it was a prosthetic leg. It still had the shoe and sock on it and everything. I was like, ‘Who [...]
