confessions…

Posted on Sep 4, 2012 in Lifestyle

1. I never thought I’d say this, but I actually enjoy commuting. I get to spend three hours a day with Babyface in the car. We laugh and listen to NPR and talk about our hopes and dreams and all that mushy crap. It’s nice.

2. I feel like I’ve lost all of my kitchen creativity lately. Totally tapped out. I really need to spend some time cuddled up on the couch with some inspiring cookbooks and magazines to try to get my mojo back. Sorry for the lackluster showing as of late.

3. I had five different to-do lists going this past weekend. I think I have a problem.

4. I don’t get the appeal of donuts. They’ve never been my thing. But Babyface? He’s a donut fiend. And because of this, we now own a donut pan. In the 48 hours we’ve owned this donut pan, he’s turned to me no less than 10 times and said, “Ooooooh! I’m gonna make {insert something crazy} donuts next!” He’s a little obsessed with his donut pan. I’ll start to worry when I get kicked out of bed to make room for the donut pan. At least someone is getting creative in the kitchen.

5. Sometimes I drink out of the milk carton. And by “sometimes” I mean “pretty much all the times it’s not being photographed”.

Do you have any confessions to share?

  1. I’m not a donut person either, but I’ve always wanted to try making my own at home just to see how they’d come out! I can’t believe you drink milk from the carton haha. That one made me laugh. I don’t think I’ve ever done that in my whole life, isn’t that weird?

    • It seems so silly to dirty a whole glass for just a drink or two of milk! I wouldn’t do it if there were more people in the house, but it’s just me and Babyface, and we share germs being all kissy-face anyway. :P

      • That’s probably one of the reasons you guys live here and not in Canada. It’s totally a lot harder to drink out of those weird milk bags they have up there! :P

  2. I don’t know, Cassie. I think your kitchen creations are pretty damn impressive lately (and always). I’m making your zucchini “noodle” lasagna tonight (with a few alterations- using goat cheese and adding some spicy turkey sausage).
    I’m with you on the doughnuts. It’s not that I don’t think they taste good, but I would never have one for breakfast (because I’d need like 10 to keep me full) and they’re gone in like, 3 bites. My husband LOVES them too- he’ll go to Dunkin Donuts and get an old-fashioned and a chocolate-frosted every time. And then he’ll eat a real breakfast. And maintain his 9% body fat. Life is fair.
    I don’t ever drink from the milk carton, just like I never eat peanut butter from the jar with a spoon. Or sometimes my index finger…

    • I made cookies yesterday for my co-workers, and I had to keep reminding myself to get a fresh spoon when I went to dig into the dough. :P

  3. I don’t mind commuting as long as there isn’t traffic. My commute is only 10minutes, but last year when my dad was in the hospital in London I had to drive the 2hours each way from Windsor almost every day to be there. There’s no traffic on the 401 in that stretch ever, so I didn’t mind. If I had to drive for 2 hours and only went, like, 75kms though I’d be stressed beyond belief.

    • Yeah, I’m with you there! Right after college, I was working in Louisville and somedays, with the traffic, it would be hours barely moving. SO frustrating. I’d rather do two hours at a reasonable speed than 30 minutes at a crawl.

      I know a lot of people complain about the traffic on the 401, but both times I drove it in the morning rush hour, it actually wasn’t all that bad. Granted, I just got in the left lane and plowed through since we were headed back to the States.

  4. The kicking you out of bed to make room for the donut pan legit made me crack up. Thanks for that!! :) Tell him to create a pumpkin donut and share on BTHR!! :D

  5. I don’t normally drink out of the milk jug. 1. because with my luck I’d dump the entire gallon down my front. 2. that’s like sharing my 16 oz soda with the family – not my thing.3. I drink milk but I’m not that big a milk drinker. But with that being said, my 12 year old son caught me slurping the last few drops out of the jug. He said “mom, I’ve never seen you do that before.” I said since someone put back just a few swallows, and that was all I wanted, I didn’t see the need to waste a glass and have to wash it anyway. He got the biggest kick out of me doing that.

  6. Donuts make me burp. But I eat them anyway.

  7. Your “Confessions” posts are my favorite. I had three to-do lists this weekend, so I’m not far behind you. I had one for each of my jobs and then one for stuff to do around the house. Reading your post reminds me I want to go try out the local donut shop I’ve never been to. :)
