Ryan declared these the best brownies that he has ever had, and immediately gave them a 10 out of 10.

Recipe to follow!!
Not an official Snow Day of course, but that did not stop Ryan and Murphy from enjoying the snow.
First, they built a snowman . . .
Then, Murphy ate the snowman’s nose . . .
Great day all around!
P.s. if you are wondering why Murphy isn’t wearing his wonderful snood, it is because his Dad dressed him, and doesn’t appreciate fashion like Murphy does!
I have been struggling with a cold, and I decided to peruse the internet for some home remedies so I could avoid taking medicine during the day.
A handful of websites suggested mixing apple cider vinegar and water and drinking it during the day to help when you are congested.
Well, I was desperate (very desperate), so I tried it. I have to say it tastes horrible, but the taste is growing on me. It kind of seems like really funky ginger ale. But, more importantly I think it might be working.
Also, I just heard today that apple cider vinegar is supposed to help with weight loss – who new?
Has anyone else tried this? Any luck?
I know that I have said before that I was contemplating giving up store-bought bread – here and here. While we haven’t actually fully implemented that goal, we definitely do not eat a ton of store-bought bread.
Today I found another reason to give up store-bought bread. I tried homemade bagels, and they were delicious! Much better than what I would typically get at the grocery store!!!
They definitely look homemade, and I need practice on getting them to stay together (although I found that sticking a toothpick in to hold them together while you waited to boil the remaining bagels was actually quite effective). But all that matters (in this house anyway) is taste. My boys do not so much care for or understand presentation.
I started with this recipe.
Here is the recipe after I changed it:
Hi friends. I am tired puppy today, because I had to have a procedure. I broke a nail and it just wouldn’t heal, so Dad had to take me to the vet today.
I am not sure why other puppies dislike going to the vet. I love going because it means that all these new people will pay attention to me. I am not sure who I feel about the kittens in the waiting room though. Also, now I get treats twice a day!! I don’t know why mom insists on calling them medicine.
p.s. Doesn’t my new shoe look super cool?
Today I decided to do something a little different for football Sunday. Originally I had planned to make Chicken and Waffles for the game, and then Ryan informed me that the Baltimore Ravens and the Atlanta Falcons are different teams. My bad.
In honor of the competitive nature of the Super Bowl, I decided to challenge myself to a cook-off. That’s right Lindsey v. Lindsey for the ultimate cooking victory – best meal of Super Bowl Sunday. It is going to be a blood bath.
Well, maybe not. It doesn’t hurt that the judges – Ryan and Murphy – are biased, and that I am the only cook. Still, I am sure that when the winner is declared I will feel like a champion and talk smack (to myself)!
Something for you all to drool over . .
Oh and go here, and vote for who you think the winner will be!!!!
