foodie tips of the day

September 22nd, 2009

* Much funner to watch the Food Network than it is to actually cook dinner. JUST SAYIN’. My favorites: the Deens, What Would Brian Boitano Make? and any show where they bake cakes or pies and say snarky things behind each other’s backs and TO each other’s faces.

* Why do we have fancy cable now, not just boring cable like we had before? One word: NHL. This is Hockey God’s anniversary gift from me, I love him so. Show I most don’t “get”: ICarly. Second show I most don’t get: Spongebob. No, don’t bother to explain, they’re both over my head.

* DANCING WITH THE STARS, NIGHT TWO. Tonite. Be there. Vote for Debi and Maks.

* Candy corn + peanuts = tastes just like a Payday candybar.

* Only I don’t happen to have those items, so I put together a canapes platter that consisted of the following: grapes, strawberries, Newman’s Own pretzels (“Crunchy relives stress! It sends your endorphins to their happy place” (or something) — Lady on Food Network, chirping and grocery shopping) and some saltwater taffy that Steve brought us from the beach. One of the flavors is… lavender? WTH? Weird, but tastes good. Fancy taffy guy.

* He took our girl and her best friend for a late birthday getaway. She wanted to do this instead of a birthday party. Nice idea! Nice dad to agree to it.

* All for now, ta-ta.

    Good for Steve. That’s a memory that will stick with Wacky Girl all her life.

    Spongebob is wc2.3’s BEST SHOW EVER. He talks about sb and the gang like they’re his friends.

    I don’t get Spongebob either. I end up feeling bad for Squidward, and I think he’s supposed to be one of the villians.

    I ABSOLUTELY UNREASONABLY DESPISE Spongebob. He is the real reason we don’t have TV. Him and his dumb friends. No! Don’t even get me started!

    LIB, he’s a nice guy. He took us this weekend for two nights for a late anniversary present. Stayed in a tiny, mildewy cabin on a quiet stretch of the Oregon coast. It was perfect.

    wacky cousin, how could he resist? they’re crack cocaine.

    Neisha, I read that as “squidwad.” Steve: “WARD! WARD!” Me: “Huh. Really? Still don’t get it.”

    Nan, you are wise. Keep up with the outdoor activities, buy a Wii-Fit if necessary.
