Doesn’t Sound Appetizing

Hmmmmm!

Hmmmmm!

I’m not sure what disturbed me more about these items on Pho Mai’s menu: The odd fish balls visualization or the “barbecure” pork typo.

At least the price isn’t too expensive!

iPhone Photo Friday

Guess who expertly drew the smiley face in the fogged-up glass door?

Wondering who expertly drew the smiley face on the fogged-up glass door? Guilty!

Happy Friday! Guess where I’m eating lunch today!!

Food List Mania

Recognize any of these eateries?

My older son likes to make lists. He started when he was young, and, apparently, he’s continued to this day. I know that because yesterday when we asked him what he’d like to eat for dinner, he whipped out a neatly folded piece of paper featuring his signature small scrawl and handed it to me.

It was his list of favorite (and acceptable) places to eat. It opens with sit-down restaurants where he can enjoy boneless buffalo bites, chicken fingers, dry hamburgers, hot dogs, and honey-seared chicken. There’s not much variety in his choices; he’s pretty picky. The second line includes eateries with drive-throughs. The third, obviously, are pizza places, while the final set is for desserts.

You’ll notice that “home” and “Mom’s cooking” are nowhere to be found in his log. He hates when I whip up my few standard meals, dismissing them with a withering “this isn’t as good as eating out.”

Apparently, I’ve made his “places to avoid” list!

One-Word Wednesday

Look what my older son has added to his lunch. Now the Cookie Monster is appeased!

Cookies!

“C” Isn’t Just for Cookie

Protein, carbs, and fat—it’s the perfect combination

Now that my older son is a working man for the summer (much to his dismay, because his buddies don’t start the daily grind for a couple weeks), he’s decided to save money by bringing his lunch.

When he told me what he wanted me to buy for it, I couldn’t help but laugh: Cheese (Colby Jack, to be exact), crackers, and carrots.

Somewhere the Cookie Monster is weeping.

One-Word Wednesday

Shouldn’t they change the name?!?

Liars!

How Do You Like Them Apples?

Huge fruit!

Wait, did you think I was going to write about my new iPhone 5 (which I, of course, love)?

Wonder if I have a future as a hand model.

When I saw these enormous honey crisp apples, which must be on steroids, at my local HEB, one question occurred to me:

How big are the trees they grow on?!? They could rival redwoods!
