This is as painful for me as it is for you- trust me. Does it help that I brought pancakes?

Getting my oil changed at the place we'll call "Spiffy Pube", these were my magazine choices.

Obviously I chose the Honeybaked ham catalog, cause' you never know when you'll have a ham emergency and need to have a 12#, spiral-cut beauty FedExed in.

(As as aside to Enrique, my Spiffy Pube tech: I know what you did to my car. That noise, and the "check Engine" that's on now- that came on ONE HOUR after you all messed with my baby- yeah, you know what you did. I won't be back to visit you anytime soon, evil Spiffy Pube. I'll find somewhere else to get my hams from.)

I spent Sunday afternoon with my lovely lady Stacy at the St. Paul Art Crawl. We went to the bar at the Local Embassy Suites for bloodys beforehand. This is where, if you watch the news at all, you may remember this incident occurred.
No ducks were injured in the drinking of our tomato cocktails, I promise.

I bought some lovely earrings and this plate.
You will note that it depicts bunnies escaping from prison.

Yes it does.

Yesterday I got a haircut.

And yes, this is the best I could do for a picture. Cut me some slack. I'm retardedly busy.

Blurry, and I look angry.

It's a haircut. It's fine.

It looks a little Rock and Roll here. That is completely unintentional.


Like my muffin? Do you? Do you like it toasty and warm, big boy? Mmmm...tasty muffins.

Gotta go- many, many, many more of these to bake today.

I think that FINALLY, tomorrow, I will return to whatever "normal" is for me.

I'm really not sure what that means exactly.

I'll keep you posted.


I almost forgot! Here's the puffy pancake recipe!

Puffy Apple Pancake

2 tbsp. butter
4 eggs
2/3 c. flour
1 tbsp. sugar
2/3 tsp. salt
2/3 c. milk

2t vanilla

sliced apples, if you like that sort of thing

Heat oven to 425 degrees. In medium bowl, combine eggs, flour, sugar, salt, milk and vanilla; beat until smooth (I just mix it in the blender). Spoon 2 tablespoons butter in to a 10 inch heavy oven proof skillet (I use a large glass pie pan). Place in oven to melt butter and heat skillet. Pour batter into prepared hot skillet. Top with sliced apples, if desired. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until edges are deep brown and puffy. Loosen pancake with knife or spatula; cut into wedges.

Dust with powdered sugar when done, serve with syrup or whatever the hell you want- I’m not the boss of you.

*LOVE the hair.

*The muffins do look spectacular.

*The Lubers suck. (hehe.) I had an ex that worked at one and a co-worker forgot to put the oil cap back on and it blew the guy's engine. My CEL (I abbreviate it, I'm so used to it!) has been on since ten minutes after I bought my car. My stepdad's tester said it's the oxygen sensor, but we replaced it and it's still on. I just pretend it's my car's way of looking pretty. (Three years later and it's still running!)

ok, in addition to the pancake recipe, you also need to send me the muffin recipe. Or at least a recipe for a good apple cinnamon muffin.

You look alot Liv Tyler in that photo, and I mean that as a compliment. Of course, Liv Tyler makes me think of Arwen, which makes me think of nerdy white boys drooling over Liv Tyler with pointy ears. Or of Liv Tyler wearing thick black librarian glasses and still getting drooled over. Wow, it must be hard to look like that all the time with boys drooling over you everywhere you go. There, there.

Love the plate. That totally looks like something I would buy.

Stacy said...

Love the hair! Thanks again for Sun! MWAH & have a gr8 trip!

You look stunning in that photo. Seriously!

And the muffin picture reminded me of something I've been meaning to tell you forEVAH.

There's this fancypants restaurant and bakery near my office, and they "created" a new product last year. A cross between a muffin and a cupcake! It's a cupcake filled with berries and topped with nuts and seeds! Whatever shall we call it?

Alas, they settled on the entirely unfortunate "Muffcake." Ah, if only I were kidding.

Why are you passing off pictures of Juliana Margulies as you? And yes, your muffin has me spellbound, you damn temptress you.

CDP said...

Thank you for the recipe! I've been meaning to email, and now I don't have to. Beautiful haircut.

LittlePea said...

Great cut. And I love prison bunny escapees.

Lollie said...

Bunny plates...I wonder if there is a whole series running from the planning of the Great Escape to the tearful reunion with the bunny's long lost truck stop waitress flame.

Thanks for the recipe!

And great haircut!

At the St. Paul Art Crawl, did you happen to see Michelle Blodgett's stuff?? She's awesome. I'm sort of biased b/c she's my cousin, but she rules! I was jealous that H got to go this weekend and see her but there's always next time!!


Idea #527 said...

Oh and I made your mac and cheese! FANTABULOUS!!!

Sean said...

Like the hair and thanks for the recipe. But I am not sure about the bunny plate interpretation? Are you sure it's not the flying bunnies with force fields trying to attack the grounded bunnies behind fences? Or protecting the grounded bunnies because the lucky rabbits' foot people are coming? Was just thinking. Have fun.

McGone said...

Both the hair and muffins look great.

I hope to never again use the words "hair" and "muffins" together in the same sentence.

Stefanie said...

OK, the duck thing? HOW did I miss that???? Honestly, sometimes it's like I live in a cave. I don't get it.

Also, I'll have a muffin please. Thank you kindly.

Corvettes don't do it for you like a honey baked ham does huh?
