If the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, and Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper fame ever used their DNA to create someone it would be me. I love food, I was a fat girl once. I love fixing up rooms, painting, knocking down walls, the smell of Home Depot. Both shows are my favorites on the TV and are basically the only reason I still have cable.
I would seriously lose it if I ever get to meet them so I’ll stay safely here in the west and leave tornado country to them. Pahuska and Waco you are safe. You are welcome!
For some reason I have developed a thing for craftsman construction, I live in a run down ramshackle 1970’s version of a French Colonial. It works but it’s like Frank Zappa ran into Ponce DeLeon in a pawn shop. I have lots of ideas on how to fix this situation. I love Pinterest, Adam does not.
So while I’m busy finding easy ways to create a farmhouse bathroom and an outdoor firepit, all in a weekend, people bug me for dinner. Now, I started something way back in 1989 when I got married to Jerry. It was called having dinner. I have an unspoken expectation that there will be food available for consumption every night, usually provided by me. I have created high maintenance men.
Luckily, I can find any recipe under the sun via my Pinterest obsession. I got you covered if your Keto, Paleo, Vegan, Carnivore, Herbivore, Omnivore, or Folklore. Now I don’t have any of the new fangled equipment like the InstaPot. Heck, I got lucky and Adam bought me matching cookware for my birthday. First time I had all matching cookware, thought I’d died and gone to heaven.
I usually get creative so if I need to saute and pressure cook, I use the pressure cooker as a saute pan and then go crazy and use it as it is intended. Problem solved and I think saved myself about 90 bucks. It’s not that I’m cheap, I’m just like those folks from the depression, I make do.
I’ve never met a dessert I didn’t like and I’m pretty sure chocolate is a food group. Did I mention I was a fat girl once? I adore peanut butter which is fueled by the fact that I had a peanut allergy for 10 years and then wah la no more peanut butter allergy thanks to having T. So I make up for lost time in the peanut butter aisle.
I also have a thing for purple, I don’t know what it is about women over 40 and purple but it’s a thing. I love purple so much I painted my kitchen purple. I thought Adam was going to faint when he saw the paint can but he was pleasantly surprised at how nice it looks.
I’m conservative in the rest of the house. Just thought I should mention that, but I do have big plans. I always have big plans. I’ll be sharing what we are doing as we go. I should mention that my late hubs was a hoarder and we’ve spent 2 years cleaning up the mess. Adam has cleaned another man’s mess, reason 456 why I think he’s amazing.
And he is amazingly awesome! Did I mention amazing…
Fiddle Dee Dee, that’s simply me!
