My First Meal

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, Food, Nonsense with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2011 by Bob

I said last night that I was going to start cooking meals from all the cookbooks I own. I said I wasn’t going to blog about it. Tonight’s meal though was sooo good that I just have to! Here are the ingredients that I just had laying around:

Tomatoes (Water, Tomato Puree), Cooked Enriched Spaghetti (Semolina Wheat Flour, Egg White Solids, Glyceryl Monostearate, Niacin Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Riboflavin [Vitamin B2] and Folic Acid), Water, Meatballs (Beef and Pork, Cracker Meal (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Riboflavin [Vitamin B2], and Folic Acid), Salt, Soy Protein Concentrate, Caramel Coloring, Flavorings and Soybean Oil), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Contains less than 2% of: Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Onions, Monosodium Glutamate, Hydrolyzed Corn, Soy and Wheat Protein, Citric Acid, Flavorings, Enzyme Modified Cheese (Cheddar Cheese [Pasteurized Milk, Cultures, Salt, Enzymes]) and Soybean Oil.

I mixed those all up, cooked it for 45 seconds or until warm … sorry, I can’t do that to you all. All I did was popped the top of the can off and dug into the Chef Boyardee Spaghetti & Meatballs cold. Without even heating it up. That is how I roll. I liked it so there.

We had stuff to do. I didn’t have time to cook and with Tori being sick, I didn’t have time to shop.

You know how I said last night the dog would wake me up at 3 am? Well, she didn’t. 5 min after I hit “publish” and pulled my blanky up to my chin, she came over and woke me up.



To a Side Note:  For some reason today, I got the most hits on my blog ever in one day. It wasn’t even that great of a post yesterday. I looked at the stats and my last death watch blog ran away with hits. And guess what tomorrow is … the next update for celebrity deaths. Apparently I am becoming quite the destination for celebrity death summaries. That’s cool. So, remember to come back tomorrow for the latest in celebrity deaths!


I Will Not Eat Spam I Am

Posted in Food, Nonsense, Tori with tags , , , , , on August 30, 2011 by Bob

The last two days, I have had more spam comments to my posts than I think I have in the last 3 months. It has made my spam folder rather full. I don’t really care that my folder is full, it is easy to empty. (aaaaaaand begin rambling NOW!) My stomach, on the other hand, does not like to be empty. I am also watching “Chopped” right now. As I have said before, I think, I have to cut back on watching the food shows because I really wish I was better at cooking and I sometimes get a little depressed (not REALLY depressed just that “bummer” feeling) when I watch them because that is what I want to do. The other night I wrote about Julie & Julia. I think Ia m going to do something like that.

I have a TON of cookbooks that I don’t cook out of nearly enough. I am goign to choose a cookbook, and just start cooking things from it. I will do this as many nights as I can. I may have to be a little selective since Jackie is a tad food sensitive at the moment, but I am sure I will be able to find enough things. Not only will this fill my stomach, but it will keep me from having to decide what is for dinner and I won’t have to eat spam. Plus, since Tori is starting to eat “real” food, it will give her some good exposure to different tastes as we give her little nibbles.

I KNOW! I will blog about my experience!!! Just kidding, I won’t do that. As I said before I am not organized enough to write about the food I make. There are MUCH better writers out there that can do that. I may write about the particularly stellar achievement or failure because the epic fails may be funny. If it is something real good maybe I will have Jackie write about how good a cook I am.

So, yeah … what? Ok, hitting the sheets now since Tori was up crying a lot last night. I have to get up early too because Piper, the dog, didn’t move from her bed all day. She doesn’t appear to be sick, but I am going to have to lure her with a walk in the morning. That, or she will wake me up at 3 am to go outside. Damn kids.

Am I Famous Yet?

Posted in Food, Nonsense, TV/Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2011 by Bob

This weekend I have been able to relax finally … a little. Still had some yard work to do and some laundry and what not. What I AM doing is relaxing watching a little tv. We have been trying to finally finish Heroes. Of course, we get about 2 episodes while Tori is taking a nap and then all bets are off. Right now, she just went up for a nap, but while she was down here, the wife and I have been watching Julie & Julia. I like this movie because I love cooking. I haven’t put a whole lot of that in my blog because it is hard enough to get just my random bits of fun-ness as it is without trying to get recipes and what not. Anyhoo, the other thing about this movie is NOW I can relate to her blogging every day throughout the cookbook.

I am so sympathetic with that now. Blogging every day is not easy when I can make up whatever I want. I can’t even imagine trying to do it while learning how to cook and doing every recipe in a cookbook like that.

I do think that one day I might blog about cooking. Maybe I will finally win the lottery, quit my job, and go to cooking school. I would love to do that.

How ’bout I get to the point of the title. As I am watching this movie, I wish that my blog was so popular that someone would call me for an interview and bring a famous somebody to dinner. I think it would also be cool for people to send me hot sauce and stuff. Then again, to have a blog that popular, I would actually have to put a little bit of work into it. I am far to lazy I think these days for that. Most of my non-lazy energy goes toward work and trying to keep up with Tori. Over the next few months, I am also going to have to spend those energy reserves getting another bedroom set up for Tori to move into when her brister gets here.

I guess I will just have to wait for fame and fortune to find me in some other way. That’s ok, I wouldn’t trade most of my life for anything. I know I was a little rambly today. My knees really hurt and I did some yard work so I am on allergy meds making me a little loopy today. Yeah, that’s all I got today. And …. scene.

My First

Posted in Holiday, Nonsense with tags , , , , , on June 18, 2011 by Bob

I am enjoying my first Father’s Day weekend. I spent the day with my two favorite ladies today. We spent the day out shopping, relaxing and then came home and had a nice grilled chicken, Veggie Kabob, and Couscous dinner. It was my own marinade and it was actually pretty good.

Tomorrow we are going out to dinner with my dad and last week night we went out with Jackie’s dad.

Best part of today was spending it with Tori. Tomorrow will be the same, except I think Papa might try to be with Tori a lot since he spoils her.

To all my fatherly friends out there…HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!
