This week on Totes Awesome Channel we are vlogging about what makes us laugh. I tell you about a joke I told a stranger.
In the excitement of finding an awesome deal to Paris, Kim and I failed to see that we had a 17 hour layover in Istanbul, which is enough time for dinner and a breakfast and a bit of sightseeing! We already booked our one night there in a hostel. It’s almost like we scored an extra country!
I started a Facebook album called “Bob with Things on His Head”. Now that all the photos are grouped together, I am motivated to find more things to put on his head.
Happy February to all! I had a fairly productive January in terms of my resolutions. I’m lagging behind the goal to post twice a week on the food blog but am pleased with my overall progress. First progress report will be posted first of March!
I normally don’t tell people my dreams because I find generally dreams are boring except to the people who are in them or had the actual dream. But this nightmare was a cautionary tale for me! I dreamed that Alan and I were coming back from a walk with Bob and we had left our door unlocked. A burglar was in our apartment and we knocked him in. He was smug and told us he came by yesterday too. He then took his Samsung Galaxy III phone and bumped it against our phones under the ruse that he’ll show us what he stole from us. Instead, he ended up wiping clean our phone memories. I seriously started wailing because my phone has over 2,000 photos on it. I woke up so relieved to find that it was all just a dream.
In my actual life, I have over 2,000 photos on my phone. I really need to work on backing them up.
I made my first pot pie and am adding this into my winter rotation. It’s a Garam Masala pot pie and the only changes I made to this recipe was I reduced the amount of garam masala according to taste. I also cheated and used frozen carrots but according to the reviews, if you use fresh carrots, you should cook them a bit first or they will stay hard.
I called my Best Dudie Friend who is my cooking life line and had him coach me into doing patch work with the puff pastry to properly cover three of these pot pies. The tragedy was I left the third one out inadvertently and so I threw it out as to not risk food poisoning. I hate throwing out food.
