Friday Flotsam

FRRRRRRRRRR ew ra ho ba. (<—no idea.)

I’ve been saying “crud” a lot lately. CRUD. Like when a coupon expires or when you run out of Metamucil. “Well crud!”

Actually, it started a good bit before Corona. Back in February. Who says crud, though? I mean, my mom says crud. She says dern, too. “Well dern!” THAT is my childhood right there.

But like, why crud? What does that word even represent? Is it a mix of something? Crap and dud? And you guys, I’m not saying it in response to the current news. Crud doesn’t belong there. But it flows so easily from my mouth hole and I am not understanding this. “Well crud!”

I suppose I do wear a visor with tennis shoes and bare ankles, so. Okay.

Do you say crud? And if you do, are you okay with it? Can you look yourself in the mirror at the end of the day? Because it’s becoming pretty dern easy for me.

Crud I said dern!

Okay, this is what I think about. (you’re like, “oh here we go.”)

You KNOW someone in Hollywood has already bought the rights to the Coronavirus movie. I mean how fast do you think that happens?! And I bet you the money I’m not making this year that they’re writing it right now. Today, this moment. Every bit of news that pours in they’re jotting down, taking notes, making the graphs and the tables and writing the SCRIPT. I bet they’re even casting. Do you think they’ll ask Gwyneth again? Hahahah! oh.

Aaron told me that when anything interesting happens, and someone happens to witness it, they can run over and ask for the rights to the movie and have the happenee sign a piece of paper. A waiver or release of some sort. Do you think he’s full of crud?

Tell me what to bake this weekend! It’s COLD. Dropped to the mother-cruddin’ 30s overnight. This ain’t cool, Mama Nay Nay.

I’ve already baked bread. I’m thinking something on the slightly sweeter side. Using ricotta or bananas or chocolate chips or all of that.

Got anything good? What are you baking? Something cast iron skillety and rustic? Give me ideas, dern it!

(I’m not yelling at you.)

Okay, we watched Tiger King. And guys, that Carole lady totally fed her man to the tigers. Without a doubt. Did you catch her eye flutter and quick glance to the upper right corner? GUIL-TAY.

Is it being said, or am I making this up that since that show release, the police in Florida are getting leads on her husband’s disappearance every day?? Is that true? I need to see her BUSTED, pronto.

Also, all I could think when looking at creepy grody Doc Antle was I bet you anything Tim Robbins based his High Fidelity character on him. I mean, LOOK.

That’s all.

Weekend plans? HAAAA!

I’m going to finish Bookends and dive right into In a Dark, Dark Wood. And bake! And finish week one of official homeschooling. And deep clean a few drawers. And maybe wash my hair.


(From this week: Food, books and music . . . oh my?)

    Do you mean In a Dark, Dark Woods? Because I am in a dark, dark place so maybe I need that one! ?????‍♀️

    I am making little ramekin blackberry crisps (using Pinch of Yum's recipe - I think hers is raspberries) since my berries are looking ROUGH. I haven't been to the store in over a week and have been doing my best to make do! My weekend plans include getting out in the sunshine (hopefully!) whether it be on my deck or a nature trail (don't worry, away from people!). I deep cleaned my make-up drawer and washed my brushes after I realized yesterday that I had navy blue eye shadow streaked on my face from it getting in a brush.

    Okay, so this is not sweet (I guess it can be, though?), but have you ever made homemade bagels? Quarantine Julia convinced herself she was down for it, but recipes seem complicated for my level 1 baking skills.

    Bake Smitten Kitchen's pumpkin bread. The recipe uses the whole can so it's a bigger loaf. More yum for the 'weekend' and you could add chocolate chips? You say you don't have a can of pumpkin?!! OH CRUD.

      I was going to suggest Smitten’s cannoli cake since it uses ricotta and chocolate chips

      I’ve always been curious about olive oil cake. I don’t have a specific recipe in mind, but it doesn’t sound overly sweet. Maybe look into that?

    Have you ever baked Alison Romans salted chocolate shortbread cookies? If not, they are a must. THE best cookies I have ever had! Happy Weekend!

    Thanks for the High Fidelity clip. He's a creeper indeed. I tried to watch the new episodic version w/ Zoe Kravitz but when you heart John Cusack like I do, it's just not the same. I'm thinking Saturday morning banana pancakes w/ the two brown bananas on my counter. Those could easily include ricotta and choc chips...

    Sugar free lemon bars with almond flour crust and these ridiculously easy and addicting no bake energy balls...

    I made a jalapeno cheddar cheese bread last night to go with your white chicken chili recipe you posted, that I've been making weekly since you gave us the recipe. And the bread was to die for.

    I’m making dough for bagels Saturday to be boiled on Sunday for brekkie and a vegan chocolate chip, pumpkin seed pumpkin bread for eating immediately.

    How creepy is this? I was following Kody Antle (Doc's son) on IG before I ever watched Tiger King because tigers, duh? I had no idea! I had to unfollow him after the show....But what they say in the documentary about people loving tigers and getting to interact with them is so true. The whole thing just made me sad, which I didn't need but he ended it perfectly with the keeper saying how the cats had benefited NOTHING from all that transpired. And on a cheerier note, I painted an Easter egg with water colors just now and I'm going to use my ricotta for some manicotti tonight. Prego!
