Congratulations to the Saints for winning the Super Bowl. I can't get that picture of Drew Brees and his little son out of my head. To sweet for words.
Jack and I were very excited for our Sunday dinner. He was able to bust out the electric smoker again and smoke a brisket for close to 9 hours. It was so delicious, juicy and practically fell apart. I have to say it was his best job yet.
I was also able to partake in some Sunday FUN (you all may not think this is fun, but if you know how much I love chicken tenders, you will know why I was so thrilled about his purchase). I invested in a little fryer - $49.00 at Bed, Bath and Beyond...... We had a Fry Daddy growing up, but this little deal blows that Fry Daddy out of the water - it came with a basket and lid! With our delicious brisket we wanted to be able to fry some okra. Sunday afternoon I tested it out on some CHICKEN TENDERS.....AMAZING! If you like fried food I would definitely suggest getting one of these little babies. There are so many different recipes that it came with and I am hoping to try them each out. To all of my "wanna' be vegetarian friends", this probably isn't for you.... If you want to be a "skinny bitch" you can't eat fried food, oh... or meat, I forgot!
Friday I went to Purple Glaze on Brookside. I kind of felt weird because I was by myself, but I highly enjoyed it. It is a pottery place where you can pick out different pieces and paint them. The studio fee is $6 and then however much your pieces cost. That includes paint, baking, glaze, etc. I painted a picture frame ($14) for Jack from Tank for Valentine's day. It was so sweet on Tank to think of that idea. While I was there I also painted a planting pot ($18) for myself. I am SO READY FOR SPRING, so this definitely made me even more excited. It is already sitting on our back porch with no flowers in it....
And last but not least, a picture of my two favorite guys.... Have a Happy Hump Day!
