It’s been a busy week playing catch up after being out of town for a few days, so I’m here today to share a couple of random things worth trying if you’re looking for something new to do with yourself, your mouth or even your hair.
Try Brushing Your Teeth in the Dark.
Thanks to a couple of flashing firefly toothbrushes, one of our new favorite new activities is scrubbing the pearly whites with the lights off.
It’s a dance party in your bathroom! You’re totally invited to join us and pump up the volume while you pump out some toothpaste.
(Please still aim your spittle toward the sink.)
If you are susceptible to epileptic seizures, you should probably sit this one out. Those flashing toothbrushes are like mini strobe lights.
NUMERO DOS! PRUNES!
Better than raisins mostly because no one eats them but me, they’re ALL MINE MINE MINE. They’re GOOD! They’re full of fiber! They’re not just for grandma anymore!
(If you’re currently trying to lose weight, beware of prunes. It’s easy to devour your daily calorie allowance in dried fruit if you’re not paying attention.)
#3? Eat Candied Ginger Off a Plate
Fine, forget the plate. That was really just for photographic purposes.
BUT! I’m currently involved in a steamy love triangle with prunes and candied ginger. Sweet, spicy and scrounged straight out of the bag most days of the week. I told you it’s getting hot in here.
Four? Philly Cheese Fakes.
Since taking on the role of Stay at Home Parent over 5 years ago, meal prep has largely been my responsibility. Fortunately though, the husband is no slouch in the kitchen and he whipped up this veggie burger/veggie concoction on short notice one night over the weekend.
A Morningstar black bean burger, a sliced onion and roasted red pepper, sauteed together in a little olive oil until the veggies are soft and the burger is cooked. Chop your veggie burger up and load it all into a warm tortilla. Top with a little BBQ sauce and some shredded cheese if you like.
Reminiscent of a Philly Cheese Steak with it’s sauteed peppers and onions and melted cheese, we coined this magnificent medley a “Philly Cheese Fake”. They are my current lunch time obsession.
Doesn’t it look like that Annie’s Chipotle BBQ sauce is what I’m drinking for lunch?
I didn’t, don’t worry. But now that you mention it…
And last but not least, Try Putting Your Flat Iron Away For a While
(you use one too, right?)
And oh yeah, 21 weeks baby! That means 19 weeks until the first day of summer, people. I know you’re counting down the weeks too.
In other news, I’d like to report that my belly now is sticking out further than my boobs! This is no small feat, believe me. After all the growing The Girls up top did in the early stages of pregnancy, the fetus finally pulls ahead and takes the lead! Phew.
Now go eat a Philly Cheese Fake and have some candied ginger for dessert. Snack on a couple prunes and then meet me in the bathroom for a little old fashioned, club thumping, toothbrushing fun. And don’t trip over my flatiron in the dark.
