We all survived the first real week of 2021, and now you’re choosing to be here with us.
Caroline gave me this cookbook for my birthday, and I’m obsessed. I haven’t made anything from it that I didn’t love. The sweet potato tacos and the Greek chicken salad reign supreme right now. If you’re looking to branch out your menu in the new year, I highly recommend this one
It’s no secret that I love Bob Ross. I voluntarily used to watch him as a child, and as an adult, I listen to The Joy of Painting if I can’t sleep. He’s the purest human. I have a tin of “happy little tree” mints on my desk at school. My students have obviously seen them and commented on them, but it’s not a prominent fixture in my classroom. We went back to school on Monday, and one of my students presented me with this. I DIED. Children are so observant and thoughtful, and I can’t imagine the conversation that she had with her parents to get them to buy this. If you have a Bob Ross lover in your life aka anyone with a pulse, get them one.
I know I’m going to get such grief from Caroline for these, but I don’t care. Before Christmas I texted her and said, “Do I need leather leggings?” I don’t know if I’ve ever received a faster response from my sister, “No.” Welp, as Beyonce once said, “I’m a grown woman. I can do whatever I want.” So I bought them. Zero regrets-until I get sweaty in them and have to powder my legs to get them back on.
Don’t worry. My favorites don’t include Bob Ross bobbleheads. I don’t understand Kat’s affection towards him, but I do understand my affection towards this food chopper. I got this little gift from our dear mother, and I honestly thought I wouldn’t like it because you use a pull cord to chop everything. Always trust your mother. I couldn’t live without this thing now. Well, I could, but chopping onions would be a much more daunting task. No one wants that.
I couldn’t find my exact one, but this is similar with great reviews.
My next favorite is a PSA for muffins everywhere. I went to make these scrumptious (and also healthy) muffins this week.
I was out of my parchment paper liners. Sound the alarm! Other liners are complete garbage because you have to spray them and then still half of your efforts still stay stuck to the liner. It’s always a muffin misfortune. If you haven’t used these, get you some. There’s muffin better.
My final favorite is Millie’s birthday. Five years ago on January 2nd, we picked up Millie from the Humane Society, and she’s been the best girl ever since. We don’t know when her actual birthday is, so we choose to celebrate her this day. She gets an extra long walk and a cheeseburger-a Baconator to be exact. From the streets to 400 thread count sheets, we’re glad you’re ours, Millie.
Need a beautiful story to watch? Here ya go.
