weekend etc

 Last night Simon hissed at my brother-in-law. He's normally mild-mannered and I've never seen him hiss at or scratch a person on purpose, until yesterday. He's on probation now. 


 I made these turkey meatballs in the crock pot last week. I liked them although my husband says they were in need of salt. His other main problem with them is that they're not beef. But I'm like: I'm trying to keep you alive longer. 


 I also made banana bread, and threw in a cup of chocolate chips on a whim. Definitely an upgrade from regular banana bread. 


 I made these triple-threat chocolate cupcakes for our block party Saturday but only like a third of them got eaten. They may become trashcakes soon, otherwise they're gonna be buttcakes. 


 Simon in the sink. He does look a little unpredictable. heh.


It's been a nice change, rooting for a winning team, wouldn't you say Ava?

  1. Your cat is beautiful, but his lack of eye contact is so sociopathic.

    I'm with your husband on the meatballs. I once went a long stretch only eating turkey burgers, and then I had a beef burger and wondered why I'd been wasting my life. But then again, I'm fat.

    1. He is possibly a sociopath. At the very least I'm thinking multiple personalities.

      So I joined Weight Watchers and the point difference between turkey and beef is drastic. Since I hoard my extra points each week for chocolate and wine, turkey it is!!

  2. I used to make my stuffed peppers with ground turkey but then I remembered I'm going to die soon and I don't want to waste my last years eating ground cardboard stuffed in green vegetables.

    1. This would be an acceptable comment if I didn't remember you telling me you hadn't eaten BREAD in years?! Unless I am remembering that incorrectly, in which case: touche.

  4. You had me at buttcakes. I made cookies last week and they're about to hit the bin too. It's such a waste, but if I stuff one more week-old oatty disk in my face, I'm going to explode. People just don't appreciate quality work these days.
