Taste Testers

My lip is looking better and better. I think it is bruised really bad. It is kinda purple and swollen.
I feel I have to explain to anyone I talk to what the deal is.

I was watching Dr Oz for a little bit this afternoon and he was making unhealthy food choices half-way healthy. He was making kids eat Rice Krispy treats made from puffed rice and half the sugar and that sort of thing. The children were acting like they were so delicious. HA! I remember a lady in my church, when I was a child, making Rice Krispy treats out of puffed rice and they were HORRIBLE. I could not eat them and I remember all the kids were talking about how gross they were.
Have you ever noticed that when any talk show host or guest tastes food on a show that they act like it is REALLY REALLY good??????? No one ever says, "that was not too great" or "I have had better." I guess it would be very rude if they did say such a thing.

I love coming to your blog. You are so refreshing! And so right about the tasters on television - I too have never seen anyone say "oh, not good!"....

Hope that lip heals well!

I have seen some on Dr. Oz make some pretty hideous faces when they try some of his natural remedies from the rainforest and such. But never with food. I can't imagine most of those "healthier" things tasting that great when you take all of the good stuff out of them!

I hope your lip heals quickly, too!

One time in college, I was on the top bunk in our room and my roommate's friend pushed up really hard with her feet and I fell off the bed and cut my lip, needing stitches. It was awful- I was a trumpet major. The good thing is, your lips are one of the fastest healing areas, so hopefully you won't feel like you need to explain for long!

Oh my gosh! I saw part of that episode too! There was one little boy on there that was tasting something (I forget what) and he had the most HORRIFIED look on his face while he was chewing. I swear his Momma was pinching him to answer "correctly" while Dr. Oz was BEGGING him to tell him that it tasted good! I nearly laughed myself off the couch!!

Hope yall are having a great weekend so far!

I agree, you are so refreshing! Thought of you on Thursday when I went to PD's. Thank you so much for telling me about that fabulous place!
hopefully your lip heals quickly!! I am sure it's painful!!! Making Rice Krispy treats with anything other than FULL FAT ingredients is just sinful! HAHAHHAHAHAHA

The thing I notice when people are tasting things on TV is that they start raving about how delicious it is before the food barely even touches their tongue! They couldn't possibly have had a chance to really taste it yet, so that always makes me skeptical about the REAL taste of it!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
