Holy moly (in Andy’s words). What a long ass recipe title and what a weekend. If you followed along on Snapchat and Instagram, you know what I am talking about. If not, ummm, why aren’t you following along on, like, the one weekend a year I go out with my gal pals???? I understand. I am sure you live a more exciting life than me so you didn’t want to see all the over drinking and over eating I did all weekend long in my beautiful Chi town. (Recap post coming soon). [Read more…]
I hope everybody is enjoying this long weekend. And by everybody, I mean all you ‘Mericans. I wasn’t even planning on posting a recipe today. However, I kind of invited my family over for an impromptu BBQ later today. And while running around, scrounging through my pantry and freezer for items to make for dinner, I thought of this super easy, last minute appetizer idea. [Read more…]
Well, we are officially home owners. Signed all the papers on Monday. Have I packed a thing yet? Nope! We aren’t moving until the first weekend in June, so I guess I have time. Time. Time to sit here and think of all the things that we need for the house. Time to sit and think about all the money we don’t have to pay for said items in new house. Cue the freak out. Is home ownership really all it is cracked up to be? [Read more…]
Soooo, yeah, remember that time when I said I was never going to make anything for Mike’s school ever again because he said I went too overboard? I wrote about it back in this post. I made a ton of cookies for a charity bake sale. The reason Mike didn’t want to me to do anything anymore was because somehow he always gets dragged into it. Then next thing you know, the two of us are up until midnight individually wrapping cookies so they accurately represent the Sarcastic Cooking brand.
Yeah, I guess I can’t blame him for not wanting me to cook for his school. [Read more…]
Maybe this Mother’s Day… it is time to say to your mom, “Hey, I got you.”
I know I said I wanted a day out alone. That’s not really true. I would love a day home with both kiddos where they were both behaving (aka not whining or only being appeased by multiple Oreo’s) and both slept for three hours during nap time. But, alas life isn’t that coordinated or fair. Motherhood is effing hard. Everyday I struggle with feeling like I am not doing enough. Not doing enough blog work. Not doing enough TV-free time. Not enough time with Jack/Andy one-on-one. Not enough time as just a wife. It is thankless, dirty, but oh so rewarding. It seriously tests the boundaries of every emotion you have ever felt. When I was younger my mom would say to me, “One day when you have kids of your own, you’ll understand.” And boy howdy, do I. [Read more…]
