Tonight’s dinner will be very fitting for the day. I texted Mr. How Sweet about dinner this morning.

His response perfectly describes what our conversations have looked like for the last week. Well, except this one.


I’ve started greasing my cake pans with butter and flour again. The last few years I have been a big cheater, using only non-stick baking spray. But I’ve decided I’m not doing that anymore. There is something I love about buttering up a cake pan. It’s probably since I really pretend it’s 1962 every time I’m in the kitchen.


This is one of our shatterproof glasses that we got for our wedding.

Not so shatterproof, eh?


Mr. How Sweet came home with four pounds of animal crackers yesterday.

Add these to the list of things he eats everyday.


I’ve had James Taylor on repeat for the last five hours. Except for that one Kenny Loggins song I needed to hear righthisminute.


You know you use too many sprinkles when you find them in every nook and cranny possible.

This was like… six days after my last sprinkles usage. I need sprinkles rehab.


I’m off to fry steak. I’m gonna set a tub of Crisco on my counter to set the mood.

    I’m one of those lame lurkers, but your James Taylor comments made me come out of the shadows. I lurve me some James Taylor.

    Thanks for your fun recipes. Your mushroom chicken is on my short list, but I’m going to pass on the sprinkles. They just do not do it for me. Although they are very cute.

    Cheers!

    I definitely cheat and spray my pans every time- that is my baking laziness. Weird since everything else I do with baking is the opposite of lazy.

    At least the shatterproof glass broke into large, easy-to-spot-and-pick-up pieces.

    I’m feeling a bit lazy today… can you make extra chicken fried steak for my family? :P

    I have sprinkles everywhere too. Not because I bake with them a lot, but because I knocked a container of them off the top of my fridge about 6 months ago, which proceeded to pop open and roll into every crevice of my kitchen. I’m still finding them every time I clean.

    I’ve been tempted to try making chicken fried steak before but I was always worried it would end up tough! It does sound delish though.

    I get mad at myself anytime I run out of the Pam Baking spray. Oh, I surely do hate greasing and flouring anything! More power to you, though! Go on and be June Cleaver.

    Really, how does he manage to eat that much?

    wellllll to be fair the glass WAS shatterproof.

    It didn’t shatter. It just broke.

    And never say “too many” and “sprinkles” in the same sentence again.

    I don’t even know who you are anymore!

    My first thought was, “Well, it didn’t ‘shatter’ per say.” I am ALWAYS grateful when they break like that, two kids and a cat are not good around shattered glass.

    Oh, and the Ben and Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake was at my local store in the mid-west, so I would think you should be able to find it. (I almost didn’t because it was on the top shelf!)

      I literally just typed the first sentence of your comment, looked up, read yours and laughed. It didn’t shatter, a large chunk broke off. lol

    “Chicken fried steak” is one of the most hilarious phrases I discovered when I went to America. I simply don’t understand why it isn’t just “fried steak”. I giggle every time.

    Atleast that glass didn’t land shards of glass everywhere like your oven fiasco.

    I love animal crackers. That tub of them wouldn’t stand a chance at my house against me and my tubs of SPREAD!

    I have never had chicken fried steak, but ever since I saw PW’s post about it I’ve been curiously craving it! Do post your recipe and photo (please)! I might take the plunge and try it! :-)
