In The Kitchen with Kate: Wordless Wednesday Edition

I saw this recipe on Pinterest the other day and couldn’t wait to try it. Homemade Veggie Nuggets!

That looks neat, right? Vegetarian chicken nuggets! And the ingredient list really was simple: Carrots, parsnips, potato, broccoli – and then some oil, egg and breadcrumbs.

The reality:

Homemade veggie nuggets, sort of, at Did That Just Happen Blog

So, mine is a different color… I can work with that… but it was also a totally different texture… well, let’s try it anyway, so what if the cookie cutter didn’t work and I pulled out the melon baller… It could still work!

Sometimes I get random texts from Mr. T.

It shows he loves me and thinks about me.

Sometimes they are witty, sometimes funny, sarcastic or serious.

Sometimes when I read them I don’t know if they are supposed to be witty, funny, sarcastic or serious.

Sometimes I end up in a formal shop waiting while my son gets fitted for a tuxedo because what I assume is a joke turns out to be real.

Yup, that just happened! I’ll keep you updated, the pageant is next week 🙂

For #MCM (Man Crush Monday) Mr. T’s girlfriend posted, “If we could all just take a minute to appreciate how wonderful this man is, that would be amazing.  So proud of him in everything he does, from singing at church, to mascotting at school, to being involved in the school play.”

So, they aren’t my words, but she sums up my Wordless Wednesday perfectly!

 

 

 

Wordless Wednesday: Lee Was Here Kitchen Tile

Lee was here tile 2

Just over a month ago we discovered that Lee had left his mark on the concrete under the kitchen floor by writing “Lee was here”.  It was a wonderful treat that still gives me goosebumps when I think about all of the things that had to fall into place for us to discover this!

Unfortunately, the reason we discovered it was because mom and dad are replacing their flooring on the downstairs…so the search was on to try and figure out how to save this little piece of Lee.  Mom and dad decided to have an exact duplicate of his signature sandblasted into a piece of tile.  It turned out beautifully, I can’t wait until the tile is in place!

Mom and dad got both sizes of the tile sandblasted. The guys doing the install will place the tile as close to the actual signature as possible.

And for those who haven’t met my brother, you can read about him here.
