Can we just start the morning off by talking about how Brooke’s hair can now almost fit into a ponytail? I tried braiding it earlier in the day but it didn’t quite work, give it another month or two and I am sure it will be long enough for a french braid.
You know when you miss people a lot and so you decide to make food that reminds you of them and after each bite you are reminded of an awesome memory with that person and then you start talking to them out loud even though they aren’t there and people look at you really strange? (Can you believe I passed a college English class after I write sentences like that one? I can’t either)
This soup reminds me of my sister because she used to make it for me all of the time. We got the recipe from Megan and it is killer! It is called ‘Cream Cheese Chicken Chili’ and we follow the recipe exactly but we add an extra can of tomato soup and we get the spicy rotel tomatoes instead of the mild. We invited some friends over to join in on the chili loving.
The reasoning for this amazing gathering: MODERN FAMILY. The premier was on Wednesday night but we all made a pact to wait to watch it until Thursday night so we could watch it together. I was tempted all day on Thursday to just watch a little bit but filled the void with How I Met Your Mother episodes until I could finally watch it.
After Modern Family we watched The Office from last week and it was hilarious! Nothing like sitting around laughing your head off while eating apple crisp. I decided that since I was on this whole fall foods kick that I had to make apple crisp for dessert. I have never made apple crisp before and I probably shouldn’t have experimented on my friends but how can you go wrong with apples, oatmeal, butter and brown sugar? Betty Crocker to the rescue.
My friend brought me my VERY OWN dish of candy corn and peanuts and she even said I didn’t have to share with anybody. I can’t wait to add a few FMWs to that bowl and some milk and eat it with a spoon for breakfast this morning.
Please note that Brooke spit her pacifier out and is reaching for the candy at the ripe old age of 43 days old. It must be a hereditary thing.
What are you most looking forward to this weekend?
Any Modern Family fans? What did you think of this weeks episode?
What are you having for breakfast today?
-I already told you. That was not a joke.
