He’s My Chocolate Pie

May 15, 2009

Things I learned this week:

1. There is a sign in someone’s yard advertising the company that is painting their house. I have ran past said sign 4 times a week since we moved here two months ago and each time I run by I think, “That is so weird that they named their company Bottom Dweller Painting…What does that mean???” On Monday, I realized that the sign actually says, “Bottom DOLLAR”. No, I don’t wear glasses, I have no excuse for the confusion.

*Side Note: I would not recommend Bottom Dollar Painting, since, like I said, the house has been in the processes of being painted for the last 9 or so weeks.

2. Boys are stinky. We went to Scott’s first dentist appointment on Tuesday. As they called our name, Nate pooped. So the nurse had to wait for us as I changed his diaper, there was only the normal trash can in the bathroom to put it in, so the entire bathroom stank. Then, the nurse takes us in this little office to get all our info and I start smelling something. I lean down and whisper, “Scott, did you toot.” He whispers, “Yes, and it stinks.” And stink it did…in the teeny tiny office.

3. You are supposed to put whipped cream on a pie, just before you serve it. If you do it the night before, it will have semi soaked into the pie by morning and be a weird brownish color and then no one will eat it at your brunch and you won’t blame them, because it did look kind of gross, but then when you get home, you will eat it for lunch and discover….Looks can be deceiving.

4. I do not have the self control to make cookie dough.

5. Self defense moves are awesome.

6. There are bread machine packs. You pour these packs into the bread machine and get fresh bread. I HAD NO IDEA! My mom knew, and assumed I knew. Never assume I know anything.

7. Mike’s favorite pie is chocolate. For the last eight years I thought it was pumpkin.

What did you learn this week?

    I’ve got a great, light, chocolate pie recipe, if you want it. It’s Daniel’s favorite pie too! Funny.

    You can also make your own bread mixes for your bread machine. I usually do this when I’m making a loaf. I’ll have the bread pan out and 3-4 gallon size baggies out and open on the counter. I measure the wet ingredients into the bread pan only, then I measure the dry ingredients into the bread pan and each of the baggies. Then I add yeast to the pan (not the baggies) and start the breadmaker. The baggies are my mixes, ready to go. I label them and stick them in the pantry. When I want bread again, I get the mixes out, add the wet ingredients, dump in the mix, and add the yeast. It’s amazing how efficient this is (and you only have to wipe flour off your counter once).

    Did you learn #5 for a specific reason. And yes #5 brings back memories of the class our moms made us take in 9th grade. Do you remember when we got in trouble for being too rough for trying out our moves on each other!?

      We did a self defense class as a girls night out. It was really fun, but, totally brought back those memories…. That was hilarious. (as are most of our child hood memories together!)

  5. […] Sunday: Happy Father’s Day! Mike and my Dad both love chimichangas* so that is what I am making. My friend Andrea (or as Scott called her for a couple of years Angiea) gave me an awesome recipe a year or so ago, WE LOVE IT! and a Chocolate Pie because apparently that is Mike’s favorite pie. […]
