Dinner Thread!

Much of my cooking lately has been of the “just heat this up” variety. Tonight, though, I made a sheet pan dinner- roasted chicken thighs with fingerling potatoes and garlic cloves, and a separate tray of roasted veggies (bell peppers, onion, potatoes, and carrots). It was delicious :) I wish I’d grabbed a pic, but…

To all (+ small update)

I am apparently having trouble responding to individual replies, so this is a general thank you to all who left a reply on my post last night. You are all so kind and have many helpful suggestions :) Thank you, GT.

Everything is awful

Some of you may remember when I posted, a little over a year ago, that my husband had been diagnosed with testicular cancer. He had surgery, it went well, he was all clear.

Hey, Chicago-area folks

Got a question for you! This may sound strange, but... did anyone notice their pets being weird around 3-4am? Housemate’s dog was pacing and whining and wanted to go out every 5 minutes (not like we were trying to sleep or anything *sigh*), and the cats were also acting weird, meowing and jumping on and off the bed…

What do you do with holiday leftovers?

Do you eat them as is? Or recreate them in some fashion? Freeze them for later?

This morning, in "Why Parents Eat Their Young"... (also, OT)

So, BabySmacks is planning to go to school in costume today. I get up at 5.30 to get him up and in the shower, and help with the face paint and so on. He’s going as a vampire. We got the fangs with the press on adhesive, and he’s wearing his black dress clothes and bow tie. I paint his face white with dark eyes, trail…

Dinner Thread!

Hey, GT, what’s for dinner? Whether it’s prime rib or poptarts, come tell us about it!

Dinner Thread!

Housemate and I collaborated on dinner tonight... She put the pork roast in the crock pot this morning, and I made the mashed potatoes and microwaved the carrots when I got home.

Dinner Thread!

Come in, sit down, and tell us all about what you are cooking or not cooking tonight!

I shake my head at humanity

Now, I know that the article says it’s a “light-hearted” thing, but you just know that a good chunk of these people actually believe this could work.

Chatty Catty's people have been found! Chatty Catty's people have been found!

I contacted the chip company today and they got ahold of her owner. I had them give the owner my number, we talked, and she came to pick up the beastie around 4pm.

We are such a bunch of suckers... We are such a bunch of suckers...

... and every stray in town knows it! This little darlin’ found us last night, about 1am. She just marched right into the garage while Housemate was sitting out there and made herself at home.

I can't believe this...

You guys. My home county (and several others) in SE Wisconsin is under a State of Emergency due to flooding.

Dinner Thread!

We haven’t really done one of these in awhile, so let’s talk about food.

Well, this is a steaming pile of horseshit

This girl, this honor student, can’t attend her graduation because she wore a shirt that showed her shoulders. No, really.

Hivemind! I need your help! Hivemind! I need your help!

I have been looking for a job.

I can't even...

I just really can’t.


It’s mah birfday today, so Other-Husband made the most fabulous lobstah chowdah for dinner (lobster courtesy of housemate’s freezer, which resembles Mary Poppins’ bag in the amount of weird and amazing stuff that can be found inside.) I don’t know what all went in there, but I saw parsnips, dill, chardonnay, leeks,…

Things I never knew existed that I now desperately want

Let’s have a fun thread! I’m feeling wretched today and have been looking for distractions. While poking around on YouTube, I saw an ad for these classes with Gordon Ramsay, and I want to take them so bad! There’s other ones, too, like the ones with Reba and Christina Aguilera and James Patterson, that I would love to…
