My (Modern) Day in Pictures...

OK, so all that 80's talk was fun, but on more than one occasion today, I was snapped back into reality that we are now in 2006 and I have a husband and 2 "spirited" kids.

The truth is, we did a lot today and got a ton of stuff done. But I don't feel like blogging about it. So instead, I'm going to post a few pictures, provide you with a brief explanation, and hit the Publish Post button.

So here's a picture of Grace, actually from yesterday, when she strapped herself into our baby swing and walked around like this for a half hour. I will say this once again. That kid's just not right...

~*~*~*~*~*~

Next is Hannah. This is how her and I spent our evening. I painted her nails and then she painted mine. (Please excuse my skanky ass feet in the picture.) Such concentration on the poor girl's face. She really does look like she's diffusing a bomb, doesn't she?

(Did I mention that a 2-year-old doesn't really "stay in the lines" when painting nails and that I don't own any nail polish remover? Yeah. Nice.)

~*~*~*~*~*~

And last but not least, we've got kitchen talk. So tonight was the night. The night we finally got to use at least a portion of kitchen, and cook on the stove top. Steve had both sausage and a hunk of salmon defrosted. He assumed I'd be eating some sausage. Nuh uh. No way dude... That's gross.

THIS, my dear husband, is what I want as my first official cooked meal in our long awaited kitchen...


That's right, folks. I wanted "dippy eggs" (i.e., eggs over-easy for those of you not raised in a Pennsylvania Dutch community where you use childish names for food). I haven't had a fried egg in almost a year and I fucking missed them. So that's what I ordered, and that's what my darling husband made me. And ya know what? Tomorow morning, I'm going to fire up the sucker again and make myself some scrambled eggs. And then I'm going to slather them in ketchup and savor every bite.

And yes, those are my actual eggs in that picture, and yes, that is all butter. I love butter. I adore it. And we cook with it. A lot. Get over it, healthnuts. My food tastes better than yours, so nanny nanny boo boo to you.

You have some darn cute kids Alien!!

I LOVE eggs and REAL butter. Although I don't usually get to use real butter. If I ate it as much as I would like, my cholesterol would be through the roof (god I sound old!). So I only get it once in a while. I love a cup of coffee, and eggs cooked with real butter to start the day!

DD and you would get along famously, her all time favorite breakfast ever is dippy eggs...and we even call them that, lol!

YAY on a range and your butter and your dippy eggs!!!

I really enjoy reading this blog --- your kids are adorable and I like your kitchen countertops -- very cool.

Scrambled eggs and ketchup is yummy.

Your butter container is the same as ours, Alien! And my brother-in-law puts ketchup on his eggs too! In fact, he puts ketchup on everything! My sister goes through the two huge bottles from Costco (the wholesale store) every week!

Your girls are very pretty. And I love dippy eggs! I had some just yesterday, and I was all,"hell yeah!" for the dippy eggs! And only serial killers don't enjoy real butter. I would avoid those people.

I love the pictures of the kids. My favorite eggs are sunny side up (Dippy) made in the center of some bread. We call them "Pop Eggs."

Mary said...

I think fried eggs are a great 'first meal' back in the kitchen. YUM!

That's great that you let Hannah paint your nails. Luckily for me, Clara doesn't know about nail polish yet...

Janet said...

We call them dunkin eggs! Yummy! I could not have lived a year without my eggs!

I am sooooo glad to hear someone else uses ketchup on their scrambled eggs. It grosses Eric out!

Also glad to hear that Steve calmed down and let you actually use the kitchen before everything was complete:-)

Give me dippy eggs and toast with grape jelly (or spaghetti sauce and then put the egg on top and YUM) and I'm a happy lil' camper. Rock on with yo' buttery self.
