How wonderful is it that most of the comments I got yesterday were regarding pumpkin not being all that… and a bag of chips.
Clearly I have the best and most badass readers ever. I love you all!
Life has been a little nuts this week… and to top it off I was called…. “chubby”.
Yes, a boy… on a date… called himself a “chubby chaser” for liking me.
So I’m a size two… instead of my end of prep baggy size 0.
I’m a WHALE.
…. at least I’ve got bitchin shoes?!
Sometimes I wonder where these guys get off saying the things they do…. and why I keep dating complete morons. If I’m chubby, then you’re going to be sadly disappointed with 90% of women out there. Ever wonder why you’re single?
Newsflash, it’s you, not me.
But the GOOD news about me being so “chubby” is that I baked Monday.
Baked total AWESOMENESS.
It all started with dinner. I invited my brother and his family up to the house Tuesday night. I cooked up a mash up of meals… mostly mexican. Some lean ground beef with taco seasonings, cheese, broccoli slaw (I had no lettuce! oops!), some Annie’s mac and cheese.
… and totally hilarious watching my nephew eat.
As he eats and the shell breaks he says “I’m in big trouble” with every bite. It’s hilarious.
Then of course it was time for my awesomeness baking skills to shine.
- 3 cups large flake oats
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2-2 c butter
- 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
- 8 (or so… ) medium apples. I used Gala, Cortland and 1 honeycrisp
- Cinnamon (to taste)
Mix dry ingredients, cut butter into dry ingredients
Peel, core and slice apples
Layer oat mixture, apples, more oats.
Bake for 45-50 minutes at 350.
Done and done.
Top with caramel pecan fro yo and devour
And then proceed to laugh at your brother encouraging your nephew to try and make friends with the “bad kitty” Fritz.
Fritz gets very nervous when there is a lot of people around. If you don’t approach slowly he tends to hiss and swat his badass declawed paws around.
Griffin hisses back. It’s funny.
Fritz isn’t cranky, he’s just misunderstood. I swear!
Hope you all like apples instead of pumpkin!
Happy Friday! Who’s got big plans!?
