Project 52: MLB.tv

I read through a couple of different Project 52 sites last week and someone (sorry I don't remember who exactly) had the brilliant idea of watching NASCAR with their husband as a date. Since Joel loves baseball, I checked out the schedule and wouldn't you know it, the Mariners had a 7:10 game on Friday! That day we picked up some ball park food including hot dogs, nacho chips with jalapenos, dry roasted peanuts, peanut butter M&M's, and ice cold Cokes!
Since we watch can watch the game off the Roku, there are no commercials, but there are commercial breaks. We brought out a trivia game that if you play it correctly has a baseball theme. It's Joel's game and we have not played it before. Instead of setting up the board, we just asked each other really old trivia questions. It made the game pass quickly.
My goal was to make it to the seventh inning stretch and I was able to with a full stomach and numerous funny questions.
I recommend watching a sporting event with your hubby if you can. It's fun to enter into his world and hang out for awhile.

  1. I love the baseball-themed food to go along with the game. And the funny trivia is a great idea to change it up a bit. Thanks for the great idea.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
