Yetti’s Birthday

By: Tate

We recently celebrated the Yetti’s Birthday. My youngest is now 3.
We threw a birthday pool party with family.
It was obvious success.

This is the cake.
Many asked “what were you going for?”
My answer: edible.
You see this isn’t supposed to be anything but 4 small layered cakes.
No decorations- nothing.

How am I supposed to know you are supposed to put stabilizer in layered cakes. I thought the filling was supposed to act as some type of adhesive – but it doesn’t.
It just makes the cakes slippery.

Did I mention that The Yetti went off and jumped into the pool without his floaties?
Yes- this happened. And he sank like a rock.
No worries though I went right on in after him: clothes, shoes and all.

This is no surprise to me. The same thing happened, last year, with CiCi.

And just like last year I ruined my Minnetonka Moccasins.
But my kid is still alive.
So I’m happy about that.

But I still want my Minnetonka Moccasins.


Meal Prep

By: Tate

I kid you not:
When I sweep the kitchen floor I find food that I can’t remember the last we had in our house. I found a cool ranch Dorito chip.
I like Doritos but I hate all that nonsense that gets all over your fingers when you eat them.
This food item had not been officially blacklisted, but I don’t buy them. So when I found one while sweeping I was floored. HA!

I meal prepped all day today. But not in a healthy way. More like in a way where dinnertime doesn’t seem so daunting.
But oh my G.O.S.H does that take forever.
No wonder so many post about it all their meal prepping that S takes forever.


The Bend and Snap

By: Tate

Some of us will remember the time Elle Woods taught America the “Bend and Snap” in the cinematic classic:
Legally Blonde.

Bend and Snap

If you have not seen this masterpiece …what’s wrong with you?

Anyway… around here me and the kids still do the Bend and Snap.


It just looks a little different.

Shocked? That I snap my own green beans.
Me too.
