Sleep bobbing...

So, every time the Dell "lollipop" commercial comes on my cute little guy starts bobbing his head... you know the commercial...right?  Well, if you are some where in a distant jungle and have missed may see it below and have the song implanted into your head for at least the next two weeks.

So, tonight I had rocked my little guy to sleep.  He was out,  I was using this time to trim his finger nails and toe nails... it is a bit more boring with out the moving targets but I have found it is a bit safer...for him.  So, he is sound asleep, on my lap and I have sat forward a bit to get to his right foot.  The commercial comes on and my adorable little sleeping bundle, pacifier in mouth .... starts bobbing his head in his sleep.  I do not know how my husband and I did not wake him up because we were laughing so hard.  I ended up laughing till tears ran down my face.  It truly is one of those time you wish you had a camera running 24/7.

I dare ya... hit the play button!

Sorta Like A Corn Dog

So, tonight I wanted corn dogs. I don't eat the corn dog wanna be's from the frozen food section at the grocery store. I make them from scratch. My problem... not supposed to be frying things. So.... here is what I did.

I took three boxes of Jiffy Corn Bread Mix and made up per the boxes directions... (I added about a tablespoon of mustard since we like mustard on our corn dogs) I then cut up a package of hot dogs in to bite size pieces. I poured my corn bread mix into my cast iron skillet that was well greased (you can use a 13 x 9 pan but we love the crunchy crust from the cast iron) I then added the hot dogs pushing them down a bit. Bake @ 350 for about 30-40 min or until golden brown and a knife comes out clean.

Served with baked beans.

Not much left so it went over well!

Gone Far Too Long

Why did I ever get away from my blog? Oh yeah... life. My "baby" will be 9 next week.  My husband has faced kidney failure and...
