Great Granny

A tribute to my Granny.        She was a great woman!

I miss her.      She was tiny, but gave great hugs!!         And love radiated out from her.

She’s been up in heaven for 12 years now.        I know she greeted Jeffery with a big ole hug, when he got there!!        (And maybe even a pot of dumplings, and some nanner pudding??)

Strawberry Strolls

Everybody already knows I love PP, right??

Well last week, I proved (once again!)   just how much.

For her birthday party, she requested strawberry cake, with pink icing, and a cherry on top.

So, I duly bought the mixes,    ahem    Who bought the mixes??         To be technical, I did. I just didn’t actually go to the store.       (Oh, what would I ever do without XH, and Sweet Friend??        My whole matrix would collapse!)

Anyway, the ingredients were purchased, by whomever isn’t relevant.

Birthday girl’s request.

and proceeded to bake!       Yes, ME!     Bake!

Not picture perfect, but made with love!!

When she got home from day care, I let her frost them, and put the “Cherries” on top.

Yes, we’re pretending those little dots are cherries!

[No way was I gonna spend all that money on a jar of maraschino cherries, when the kids would just probably spit them out!!     I’m not Pinterest Omie, or anything!]

These are the survivors, from the party, that we had at a park.      So all the clean up required was to throw the trash away!!        No sweeping, mopping, nuttin!!        No decorating either!         Boy, weren’t we smart!           {And broke, but that’s beside the point!}

Now, back to loving her so much.         Did I ever mention I’m allergic to strawberries?? Along with the gluten, and blah, blah, blah??              I made cupcakes, that I couldn’t even eat!!         That’s love, folks!

Charitable Choice

Someone in my church posted about a family in need.      They have 5 kids, and are temporarily living in a tent.

I thought, “Now, what do I have that people in a tent might need?”

Towels came to mind.        So, I asked DD1 if she’d mind, if we went thru the towels, and donated some.      She’s a sweet girl, and agreed.

We have a LOT of towels!

We easily agreed to donate 3 bath towels.

slob, humor, donating towels

3 green hand towels, from my uncle, that we never even used.       (His job is professional laundry, and sometimes thing are left over.)

slob, humor, ugly green towels

Ugly green= gah bye!!

Same with the 2 “lavender” hand towels.        (I just thanked him, and took them.             I didn’t have the heart to tell him they weren’t lavender!)

slob, humor, hand towels to donate

Sorry, NOT really lavender!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looky here, a kitchen towel set.    Still in the packaging…..

slob, humor, kitchen towels to go

And 1 purple washcloth, just to test myself, to see if I could let it go…….

slob, humor, donating purple!!

Let it go!!

2 mismatched pillow cases.

And 2 journals, out of the 7 I still had.         (Didn’t I de-clutter journals a while back???)

That was just a quick run thru of the CLEAN towels.      There is still a hamperful in the laundry.        We have WAAAAAAY too many towels!!

But less now!          And less is more!

Spaghetti Spine

Is it possible to have spaghetti sauce turn into wine?   If you don’t think so, I’m here to tell you: YES! It’s possible!  I have smelt it!  ( And dealt with it too!)     It was scary!

And I took pix of the jars that I found when I moved in 16 months ago.    

(Left over from former owner.  The one BEFORE the one I bought it from!  So, that means it’s vintage is at least 2005, or OLDER!!)

But , I never remembered to upload them.   They got deleted off the camera, of course, and so this post never got finished.  

So, whadda I do??       Do what everybody else would do!       Google “rotten spaghetti sauce that’s turned into wine”!     Of course!

Results:

First pic.

slob, humor, spaghetti

Seriously? This is the result??

Further down the list:

slob, humor, jar of sauce

I just thought this was too cute!! It’s supposed to be a giphy, and the sauce sloshes.

Maybe I need to Google “spaghetti sauce with a side of penicillin”???

First result:

slob, humor, more spaghetti sauce

Ok, now I’m getting aggravated!

Aha!      Here we go!             “moldy spaghetti sauce”       Now we’re getting somewhere!

slob, humor, moldy sauce

Now that’s rotten sauce!!

The ones I found were not quite that bad….

 

 

 

 

 

My way of dealing with it:

(Here we go again)   “pouring spaghetti sauce out of a mason jar”

slob, humor, mason jar sauce

Google, Google, Google! Get with it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s try that again.          “pouring spaghetti sauce ”         Simple, but elegant.

slob, humor, pouring sauce out of mason jar

Finally!

        And, as it turns out, the most effective. 

My way of dealing with it, was pouring it down the drain!!

Can you imagine eating 11 year old spaghetti sauce?  Let me tell you, I wouldn’t recommend it!

Chosen Cheesecake

Yummmmm!!        Cheesecake!

SF made DD1 a cheesecake for her birthday.       And there wasn’t any for me, except 1 teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy bite.

Like this:

slob, humor, world's tiniest bite of cheesecake    The worlds’ smallest bite of cheesecake.   Ever.

Did ya need a microscope to see it?      Yeah, it barely made a dent on my taste buds, either! But, at least she gave me a taste!        Thank you, DD1, for sharing!       Have I mentioned that I love SF’s yummy cheesecake??

And I might or might not, have complained to him, that I didn’t get any.      Except for above referenced teaser tidbit.       (I totally complained.     And whined.     Maybe even begged a little.      I’m shameless when it comes to good food.      And his cheesecake is VERY good!    Even dare I say, “Excellent”!!!!)


So, 2 weeks go by.

Then, tonight I came over to blog.     And I always check out the contents of his fridge.  Ya know, in case he hid a salad in there for me or something!

Tonight it was OR something!!    

My very own, personal cheesecake!!
slob, humor, cheesecake!! All mine!                           slob, humor, cheesecake

SF does love me!!       I told you!!

(The fact that he made another one for DD1, and 2 for himself means nothing to me!)

I wasted no time getting that into my mouth!!

I’m in my own little world of gustatory delight right now!!

slob, humor, gustatory delight face

After some hours, (I refuse to say how many, or how few), the pan looked like this:

slob, humor, cheesecake all gone

All gone, gone.

Farewell sweet cheesecake.        You’ll always be here in my heart blog.
