Tuesday Things.

1. You know how I shared those chicken fingers on Friday? Mr. How Sweet had been out of town and came home Friday night, opened the fridge and asked in disbelief, “where are the chicken fingers?!” To which I replied, “you mean the maple mustard ones that I made 2 weeks ago that you took for lunch? The ones that you ate before I could have more than two bites?” He says, “OMG, the whole way home I’ve been waiting to eat those chicken fingers. I thought you just made them! Are you sure that I ate them already??” Um. Yes. I’m sure.

2. I’m horrified to admit this but I finally found Biscoff locally and I soooo wanted to hate it since it’s super trendy, but… it’s amazing. Ugh. I’m annoying myself. Wait. I need to go eat a spoonful.

3. Pretty sure I watched The Bodyguard five times this past weekend and all I gotta say is… Kevin Costner can be my bodyguard annnnnyday.

4. Speaking of The Bodyguard, what does that ending even MEAN?! Are they together? Aren’t they together? I can’t take that sort of ambiguousness.

5. And speaking of Kevin Costner, my brothers and I used to have some weird obsession with him when we were younger and would watch Dances with Wolves millions and millions of times. It scared the crap out of me. But I loved him.

6. I’ve only had my iPhone for about 8 months and it already houses 4500+ photos on it. Is this… normal?

7. These might have jumped into my grocery cart today. I mean, I don’t know. I can’t help it that I’m forever 8 years old.

8. How insanely adorable is this funfetti cake!? I can’t even take it.

9. Last Tuesday I decided to cook a last minute feast and made some lobster with brown butter. It was SO beyond good that I hate it’s guts.

10. I bought these neon socks over the weekend and you’d have thought I hit the powerball. It’s the little things folks.

11. I don’t turn on TV until later at night when all the good trash is on, but I started turning on SoapNet every Tuesday while I write (um, if that’s what you want to call it) these Tuesday Things since 90210 is on. All I gotta say is Brenda and Dylan WHAT ARE YOU DOING? You’re ruining everything. Like my childhood.

12. I just tried to crack an egg for a recipe that I assumed was hard boiled and… wasn’t. I say I call it a day and turn SoapNet back on.

    I need–NEED–those Lip Smackers! and Brenda and Dylan ruined my childhood, too. Isn’t he going to start dating Kelly soon anyway? Because that’s what he should do anyway. They are SO meant to be.

    Yah, I’d buy those chapsticks, too.

    Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga — February 21, 2012 @ 5:16 pm

    Those chapsticks are pretty much the best thing ever and I need to find those….wearing Samoas on my lips, or Thin Mints, is a MUST!

    And of course you love Biscoff since I knew you loved the TJs speculoos spread..very similar, very addictive, very wonderful.

    Hahahahaha – #1 cracked me up and then I read #2. You are me. I was the EXACT same way about it (and am about all trendy-type things). I like to be able to go against the grain when possible :)

    i was home from work sick all last week and got sucked into the 90210 “triple play” from 2 pm to 5 pm every. single. day. and now im stuck at work wondering if dylan and kelly have hooked up yet. sigh.


    • Jessica — February 21st, 2012 @ 5:34 pm

      FYI: they have. Well, as of an hour ago when I had it on they had.


      • Mary — February 21st, 2012 @ 5:38 pm

        GAH! and i missed it. i feel like the old 90210, like the old old ones where they are in high school still are the best. the college ones just aren’t the same. thanks for the update! :)

    There is something about funfetti that makes all of us feel like kids again. It’s just fun, and you can’t help but smile when you see a funfetti baked good! ;)

    Stacy — February 21, 2012 @ 5:31 pm

    Oh my gosh. I don’t think I could buy those Lipsmackers because I would probably ending up eating them! yummy!


    • Coco — February 21st, 2012 @ 6:04 pm

      Exactly. I just commented that and then read your comment.

    I haven’t tried Biscoff yet! It sounds awesome though. Also, found that funfetti cake and fell in love.

    Emily — February 21, 2012 @ 5:37 pm

    I need those socks and those lip balms!

    Windy — February 21, 2012 @ 5:46 pm

    Please be advised, your iPhone pictures behavior is perfectly normal. Continue on. ;)

    Oh and those lip smackers are OMG. Wonder where I can hunt them down here…


  16. #
    Chelsy — February 21, 2012 @ 6:00 pm

    I passed the Biscoff Butter up today again! I pretty much stared it down for 5 minutes while the old lady with blue hair and dark Kate Spade sunglasses gave me the stank eye! I just will have to bring myself to purchase it someday!

    Jillian — February 21, 2012 @ 6:00 pm

    Who doesn’t love Kevin Costner. I can watch For The Love of The Game a gazillion times. That is a must watch for Kevin fans.

    Forget Brenda! Dylan should be mine. I still have a crush on him!

    I bought pink polka dot socks over the weekend and I keep lifting my pant leg to see them because they make me happy….. and work is just that boring!


  18. #
    Coco — February 21, 2012 @ 6:04 pm

    I want those Lip Smackers NOW! Except I’d probably ingest them and get sick. HA

    Lynne @ 365 Days of Baking — February 21, 2012 @ 6:20 pm

    Oh my gosh, I never seen those lip smackers!!! Where have I been??!! Probably baking – I don’t get out much. I think while I’m out in search of those I need to find me some Biscoff. Haven’t had that either.
    4500+ pictures??!! Daang, girl!! That’s not many at all. Kidding. I don’t own an iPhone so I don’t know what the norm is. Just wanted to make you think you needed more. :-)

    Amanda N — February 21, 2012 @ 6:46 pm

    Those chopsticks would jump into my cart too! And I love colored and patterned socks. My mother only let us wear white or black socks growing up so when I was old enough to by my own I loved getting crazy colors to annoy her :)

    Leandra @Girl Loves Pearls — February 21, 2012 @ 6:58 pm

    ahaha! Totally guilty of also buying LipSmacker variety packs. I usually go for the classics or the soda flavors – didn’t know they did Girl Scout cookie flavors

    Jonessa — February 21, 2012 @ 7:05 pm

    I’m home sick today and would love a 90210 marathon. I loved Dylan…no matter who he was with. Also I have a slight sock obsession, so I must have those socks!!!!!

    Wait?!?!?! What is Biscoff?
    I love this weekly post. It makes my day!

    christina @ ovenadventures — February 21, 2012 @ 7:35 pm

    damn i really, really want to try US girl guide cookies. We don’t have those in Canada. We only have the sandwich ones and I think mint ones. So jealous. I have lipsmackers, it’s not normal for full grown woman to pull out lipsmackers????

    I love reading your Tuesday Things, I always get a good giggle :) I thought I’d let you know, you’re one of my favourite blogs to read. I actually bought some chicken the other day to make those Maple Mustard Buttermilk Crusted Chicken Tenders. I think the Mr is going to be mighty impressed! I can’t wait to make them.

    Kevin Costner can be my bodyguard any day too! Ah geez. Three cheers for the funfetti cake!

    Stephanie — February 21, 2012 @ 9:05 pm

    My favourite Kevin Costner film is, has been, will always be Robin Hood. It is also the first movie that I saw Alan Rickman in and he is just fabulous. I have never been disappointed in ANY role he has played. Awesome actor.

    Caitlin @ Cake with Love — February 21, 2012 @ 9:38 pm

    ok Biscoff is dangerous stuff, not kidding I ate a whole jar by spoon in 2 days, really I am saying the truth, I dint even try to spread is on something, I ate it by spoon in my cubicle with other employees staring at me!!

    Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy — February 21, 2012 @ 10:57 pm

    I love fun lip glosses! Most people prefer Bonnie bell dr pepper flavor, but I’m all over bubble gum :)

    Anna — February 22, 2012 @ 8:01 am

    So I love you and have been kind of your mini-stalker since I stumbled upon your site. Every time
    I don’t know what to cook for dinner (or dessert!!!) I creep on your recipe archive and it always delivers! Umm I totally feel your SoapNet deal. Two summers ago I spent every afternoon watching SoapNet and cooking after I discovered it’s back to back episodes of 90210, Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill. So anyway, thanks for the inspiration and being generally awesome!

    Emilie @ Emilie's Enjoyables — February 22, 2012 @ 9:33 am

    I need to find those girlscout chapsticks ASAP for my fiance. And just give in to the deliciousness that is Biscoff-it’s too amazing to resist.

    Natalie @ Cooking for My Kids — February 22, 2012 @ 9:34 am

    Oh my goodness. I thought that I was the only one stuck in a land of 90201, Dawson’s Creek, and flavored lip smacker. I feel so normal now. :)


  42. #
    Erin — February 22, 2012 @ 10:29 am

    OMG I want girl scout cookie Lip Smackers. Give me a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper and I’ll go crimp my hair and be happy ALL DAY.


  43. #
    Noelle — February 22, 2012 @ 10:46 am

    seeing that I am staying away from girl scout cookies, I decided I HAVE to find these lip balms in order to fantasize about them through my lips. LOL


  44. #
    Liz — February 22, 2012 @ 11:16 am

    Yes, I would buy those chapsticks. I WAS TOTALLY LISTENING TO THAT WHITNEY HOUSTON STATION TOO…and making my neighbors listen also because I had it up so loud while I was in the kitchen cooking. Yes, that is a lot of pictures. Your funny.


  45. #
    cecilia g — February 22, 2012 @ 11:42 am

    You are hilarious. i was feeling a trifle annoyed about things until I stopped in to read you bit of light tuesday fun. You have cheered me up immensely.. now I am going back to stare at the email screen waiting for a message from my printer! c

    Kimberlee — February 22, 2012 @ 12:57 pm

    I need that chapstick in my life!! I’m a sucker for chapstick and lip gloss..what an obsession. lol 90210 had me all messed up, I remember making sure homework was done in time to watch it. I agree Kevin Costner can definitely be my bodyguard ANYDAY…whew!! I watched The Bodyguard and ate Nutella on Friday night and felt like I was in the movie theater. Back to menu planning I go!


  47. #
    Cheryl Newton — February 22, 2012 @ 2:04 pm

    Where *did* you find those LipSmackers? Please don’t say Walmart. I try to avoid that place whenever possible.


  48. #
    Lane — February 22, 2012 @ 4:38 pm

    Ohhh Jessica….I think I will move to Pittsburgh so we can hang out and buy LipSmackers together. All my friends make fun of me for using LipSmackers. They’re so whack! haha No wonder I haven’t actually baked anything with Cookie Butter or Biscoff spread I’ve bought to share with them.


  49. #
    Stacy — February 22, 2012 @ 5:48 pm

    I had to laugh at your Dances with Wolves post. My sister and I also watched that movie over and over again. Maybe you also remember Kevin Costner also starred in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves around the same time? Yeah, I can recite that movie word for word.

    Kelly — February 22, 2012 @ 5:52 pm
