Before we begin, can I just say I still feel completely ridiculous with two computers? This is seriously me right now:
Necessary. Totally necessary. My birthday is coming up in April. Nobody buy me a computer. Ok fine. You can buy me a third computer if you want.
So yesterday I worked on my wife skills. I was going to say I worked on my wife skills over the weekend, but Friday and Saturday were mostly spent being a raging slut. I feel like that’s the opposite of a wife skill. Am I joking or am I not? We’ll never really know.
Firstly, I made this baked egg boat recipe. I could not find demi sourdough baguettes ANYWHERE, so I used a French loaf. It still came out delicious, but took a lot longer than 20 minutes to bake.
I also used bacon instead of pancetta and doubled the amount of green onions. These were both excellent ideas.
This was one of my favorite recipes I’ve ever come across and really easy to make. I had a little bit of a problem finding gruyere cheese (ended up finding it at Whole Foods) but in the future I would probably just substitute a sharp white cheddar. I’m no cheese snob, after all.
Next up, I tested out my new slow cooker and made Jessica’s crockpot BBQ beer chicken.
Of course, I never have beer in my house and all the liquor stores were closed by the time I got around to grocery shopping yesterday, so I used Pepsi. I didn’t think about the fact that this was going to make it sweeter, I was just looking to substitute the carbonation in Jessica’s recipe. Next time I would definitely use beer.
I know that I have a tendency to become unreasonably obsessed with certain kitchen appliances, and this slow cooker is no different. I impulse purchased this month’s Real Simple just because of a feature with sow cooker recipes. I’m sure by the end of the week, I will question how I ever lived without it.
Finally, I cleaned my bathroom. I know this is weird, but when I was younger, I would always request cleaning the bathroom on my chore list rather than vacuuming or doing the dishes. I think I just really like the smell of Clorox and Lysol.
