Does this look yummy to you?
It doesn't, does it??!!
It was more like
Apparently the "topping" was supposed to be a "crumble" not a smear of goopiness.
And apparently this was supposed to have "flavor" too.
Floppy Magoo Recipe #2: This Squash Bread Stuffing was more like Let's-Dry-Out-Your-Mouth-And-Dehydrate-Your-Whole-Body-By-Sticking-A-Bunch-Of-Bread-In-There-With-A-Tiny-Bit-of-Vegetable-And-Bacon-And-Call-It-A-Stuffing Dish.
I felt like I was in the Sahara Desert.
Waaaaterrrrr, I neeed waaattteeeerrr.
Floppy Magoo Recipe #3:
Chicken on Nachos.
So I was TRYING to make something
Something that no one has ever made BEFORE - ever in all the culinary history of the world.
I SWEAR on a stack of Grandma's Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks that the crap laying on those chips is real food!!!
It was supposed to be Chicken Nachos.
Tim wouldn't eat it.
He's a snob.
What about my kitchen from a week ago?
And why does my mother-in-law leave her empty wine bottles on my counter all the time??!!??!!
Heeeeeeeee. I'm just teasing.
Those aren't my mother-in-law's.
Those are my mom's!!
Please Do Not take me out of the will. I was kidding for Pete's sake!! It's pretend, it's a blog, I LIE sometimes!

Hey LOOK!!! My laundry room is a little clean though!!!!
I discovered "receptacles" y'all!!
The fancy word for them is "BASKETS!!!"
They are helpful in corralling laundry!!
And one month after discovering receptacles, how is the laundry room looking,
Completely random photo of
birds on a wire in the yard a month ago!
I have no explanation.
Move along now.
Well, we didn't eat them. They came out limpy-magoo and flavorless. Even the cats wouldn't try one. They sniffed and walked away.
Okay, let's move on to more
Our beautiful, soulful niece Annabelle and her family came over for dinner one night this summer!
Little Boy Blue played
This yittle chunky baby was not even two months old!
That is one well fed yittle tiny baby boy!!!
Look at those chunkmeister legs!
Little Boy Blue
was intrigued by this new baby boy his Grandpa was holding and talking to...
yet confused why HE wasn't the recipient of the holding and cooing.
practiced the art of compromise.
Oh my gosh, don't even get me started on our two new baby nieces who are one month apart!!!
They look like yittle tiny burritos I love them so!
And the kicker is Tim and I got to snuggle all three brand new nieces and nephew within a few months of each other! Blessed is what we feel!
So I'm going through my roll of pictures and I
spy this picture....
Now why would I take a picture of my dirty work shoes and dirty work shorts at the end of the day with that super lovely birthmark on my leg?
Well, the next picture told the story.
These pictures were taken FIVE WEEKS AGO! Heck, I can't remember what I ate for breakfast much less why on earth would I photograph dirty clothes?
The only thing I can think of is to prove that I work hard.
Really? Why would I think dirty clothes prove that?
My cats go outside CLEAN every morning and roll in the gravel and dirt for hours. Does THAT prove that they are hard workers? On the contrary. They're lazy, spoiled felines who do things like roll in the dirt and gravel for hours. For fun. Just Because.
Clearly there's no closure to THAT conundrum so let's keep moving on...
It's very important
what I want to show you next....
yellow handled silverware!!!
Picked these up at auction. They forced me to bid on them. Cause they're awesome.
Also I wanted to show you the
We use it as an outdoor sitting room/office.
in the left hand corner up there....
...It cost like
30 million dollars!!!
Seriously, have you priced wagons lately??
When did little red wagons get so expensive?
Back in my day, you could buy them for a nickel and stick of sugar I'm pretty sure.
I have a few vintage frames just hanging around up there.
And on the floor is this handmade,
all weather, turtle rug...it came from a Florida flea market.
Washes and wears great! Perfect for a summer kitchen.
I'll tell ya what I like A LOT is this set of rattan nesting tables.
Cute AND functional.
Picked up this set for $25 at a used store this summer, what a steal!
I still have the original floral plastic cushions but traded those out for these more comfy ones.
This is a set of 4 cottage prints that look better in person than this picture shows.
Okay, since all these fantastic pictures and text were just sooooo exciting today,
I feel I must end this post with a bang!
Did you know you can put hot dogs in the crockpot!!!
It's so much better and easier than cooking 56 hot dogs over a hot grill while everyone else is having fun!
Throw them in on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours.
They get all nice and warm and taste like the dogs you get at the ballpark! The outside ones even get some lines on them. Yum!
Crap. Now I'm hungry.
Thanks for humoring me guys!
Oh! I did make some beef fajitas that were absolutely fantastic so I'll be sharing that recipe next time.
Stay cool and we'll
talk at ya soon!!
