I’m making pineapple pulled pork tacos tomorrow night. I was sort of half committed to the idea and was going to just use pork chops to make them, but Jon insists that he doesn’t like pork chops in the crock pot (seriously- all shredded pork is the same!), so I asked Jon to run to Kroger and pick up a pork tenderloin because Whole Foods didn’t have any. So he went to a butcher shop and spent $17 on pork! And it’s like, a slab of tenderloin! I have a feeling we’ll be eating pork tacos for like, the next 10 days.
I’m also going to attempt to make my own whipped cream. You know that dish with pineapple, whipped cream, cottage cheese, and the Jello mix? I love it. I made it for Thanksgiving last year and nobody ate it and I ate the entire bowl by myself over the next two days. Anyway, I try not to consume carrageenan, so I’m making my own whipped cream. I think you just literally whisk it with a hand mixer and that’s it. We’ll see how it goes.
I finally made it to CrossFit today! I skipped it every day last week except for Monday. I could have gone two of the nights but they WODs looked awful and I was feeling way too lazy both days. So, maybe this week will be better. And then I went to the daycare in my booty short spandex and felt so inappropriate. I can’t believe there once was a time when I would just run errands and go out to eat in my spandex after the gym. #imamomnowcantdothatanymore
Jon and I have been watching cooking shows nonstop lately (not true- we also watch House Hunters) and the other night, they had scallops on there. I cracked up at this conversation.
Me: Those are sea creatures, right?
Jon: (Looked at me like I’m dumb.) Yes.
Me: I always thought they were potatoes.
Jon: Yes, tiny little disc potatoes.
Me: I thought you said they were sea creatures!
Jon: (Laughs at me.)
Me: Oh, they ARE sea creatures!
I also told Jon he could name our new kitten, but he delayed. So I said I’d name him Simba and then we called him Simba for like, four days. And then he decided too late in the game that he actually did want to name the kitten Rascal. So we had this conversation:
Me: You can’t name him Rascal now! I already introduced him as Simba!
Jon: Introduced him to who?
Jon: Oh my god…
We’ve had some good laughs lately. Mostly at my expense.
Laura and I got together on Saturday afternoon to book our flights to Tahoe/Yosemite this fall! We finally decided upon it. Delta jumped on this stupid bandwagon of charging extra for “Main Cabin” tickets, meaning you get to pick your seat ahead of time. For $40. Dumb. Delta irritates me. I would fly somebody else except they have SkyMiles and fly pretty much every internationally out of Atlanta. We’re going for 10 days and it’ll be my longest time away from Jackson ever! I’m not really nervous about that, but I hate the thought of him in daycare for 6 LONG days in a row! I hope Jon will be able to get out of work early! I’m pretty excited about our trip! We have lodging in Tahoe, so we just need to book it in Yosemite and then rent a car. I really wish we could have road tripped, but there really isn’t time to make it out there and back! I want to go to White Sands SO BAD but I guess we’ll do it another time!
I worked on Sunday! It was a pretty easy day! Jon brought Jackson for lunch but he was a fussy pants and unfortunately, the timing didn’t work out that well for me to go so we had a rushed lunch (he ate before I got to leave for my break). Then we were going to hang out last night so I asked him to come home from my parents before dinner but he took a nap and then I asked him to help clean up and he was like, “Ugh, I’m never coming home to hang out again.” Help clean up, dude. Get over it.
Alrighty, well I’m gross from the gym. I need to get in the shower and pump and clean up this disastrous house before Jackson wakes up from his nap. I’m making tomorrow my cooking/cleaning/pool day while Jackson is in daycare!
