Last week my folks moved in with favorite hubby and I. Luckily we have houses that are large enough for 4 people. We packed everything in my mom's kitchen and then I unloaded and figured I would organize it as I was unpacking.
She had 6 cans of sliced pineapple, multiple types of weird beans, 10 cans of the same soup, 8 packages of pasta, 6 packages of noodles etc...etc. To say she had enough food for an army would be an understatement. The funny thing is this woman goes to the store every other day. The weirdest thing I found was a box of fortune cookies. WHO eats fortune cookies? When I asked why she had a box of fortune cookies she said and I quote, "well Cheryl, we eat them when I make my asiatic food!" Asiatic Food! All these years I've been calling it by the wrong name and now I've been enlightened.
It's been 8 days since we moved and we've had about 4 major fights about stupid stuff. This woman is stubborn, pigheaded and thinks I'm an idiot. I'm trying to make this easy for my folks (my dad is happy if he eats every two hours) and still keep my sanity. The other night she decided to make a pork tenderloin for dinner (yes, she cooks all the meals). I was taking it out of the oven and my dad comes in and says "oh good donkey dick!" I looked at the pork and thought "just breathe Cheryl." Then my mom got out the sliced pineapple and I said "what's with the pineapple?" She said, "when I cook Hawaiian, I always use pineapple." I then reached into the fridge for the wine....it goes great with Hawaiian!
Today's video is all about using our alphabet stamp set and stamping onto wood. We showed this last year and since I'm busy plucking my eyeballs out, we are reshowing our favorite videos for this time of year. I hope this inspires you for this season and gives you some ideas for your gift giving. If you order this alphabet set we will include a wood frame with it. Just put wood frame in the comment section.
As for me, I will never look at a pork tenderloin the same and will probably drink wine with every meal. *I did end up throwing away the fortune cookies away as they were from 2007!
