A Tale of Two Lists

What I WANT To Do This Weekend:

*sort outgrown clothes and list the moneymakers to bring in some extra cash
*read the manual for my DSLR so I can possibly learn to take halfway decent photos with the thing
*make brownies and eat the entire pan (PMS much?)
*blog hop and comment
*search for Wenda
*make some tutus and maybe come up with an etsy shop name (any suggestions??)
*do crafty things (I have a few Easter projects in mind)
*catch up on about 34 hours of DVR'd TV shows


What I NEED TO/SHOULD/PROBABLY WILL Do This Weekend:

*fold and wash laundry (it NEVER.ENDS)
*sweep/mop/vacuum the house
*referee approximately 492 "brotherly" squabbles
*disinfect bathrooms
*fold and wash laundry (it NEVER.ENDS)
*cut kids' fingernails (a LONG overdue project!)
*keep Missy from markering (just made that word up) herself (where does she keep finding them?!?!), playing "Flush the Toys/Empty the Kitchen Cabinets," aggravating the boys, and/or all of the above.
*fold and wash laundry (it NEVER.ENDS)

My life simply teems with awesomeness. That's just how I roll.

Dichotomy for your Day (AKA: Now I've Seen Everything):

J. went to the Sams Club today- gotta dig that place. Where else can you buy a flat screen TV, a queen size mattress, a gallon of shampoo, a 100 lb. bag of flour, and a year's supply of Goldfish?

While J. was there he purchased a product called "Batter Blast."

Ever heard of "Batter Blast?" If not, hold on to your hats, people. You're in for the ride of your life.

"Batter Blast" is pancake/waffle batter in a SPRAY can a la Easy Cheese! Whoa.

Let me break this down for you: some entrepreneur had the brilliant (?) idea to PRESSURIZE batter so that, with the press of the cap, your batter sprays out onto your preheated griddle or waffle iron.

And b/c you can't buy 1 of anything at Sam's (unless the singlet is packaged in something roughly the size of a vat), we're the proud owners of 3 large cans!

Now I don't know about you, but I've always been taught that if your food product comes in a spray can, not only will it be delightfully tasty, it will probably also kill you.

But the best part? "Batter Blast" is 100% USDA ORGANIC! Does this strike anyone else as slightly ironic? Organic batter in a can that has to be "properly" disposed of so as not to become an environmental hazard in a landfill somewhere?

Oh, well. Now that we've got it, betcha can't guess what we're having for breakfast every day for the next 6 months!

  6. Eating an entire pan of brownies is an extremely good plan and i salute you for it! If i wasn't on this stupid diet (again) i would be running to kitchen as we speak to try it out myself.

    Enjoy the waffles! :)

  11. I always have two lists too and how come when I am enjoying something on my want to do list I feel the guilt of the SHOULD do list which then means I can't enjoy what I am doing on the WANT to do list!! UGHh!!!! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

    How exciting Wenda stopped by your blog!! Yay!!

  13. I can't believe Wenda dropped by - you go rockstar!

    I wanted to tell you - for the I survived cold and flu season Moms night out - you just pick one of your best buddies in your home town (or a group of you) set up a night out - take pics - and post about it. :) We will link to you - you to us- and all of us have a great night out in the meantime.

    :)

  14. Butter Blast!! That is wild! Yes I find it ironic that it comes in a can. I am now going to go do laundry, break up fights, clean, and I am making cookies if it kills me. Just visiting from SITS have a great day.

  15. Oh my gosh, Wenda came to visit you! How cool!!!
    The Sams club post is just hysterical... so true. I'm scared to death that the batter comes in a spray and that its organic on top of that! Have you tried it?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, you gotta get the Pancake Puff Pan. I got it at Target in the "Made For TV" aisle. It sounds like a match made in heaven for the Batter Blast.

  17. haha, I actually have three lists, the last is things I for sure won't get done but am pretending to work towards. :)

  18. I don't know what's funnier...that they HAVE a product called Batter Blast or that your husband bought it :)~.
