Today I am punting the regularly scheduled Eat.Live.Be. post for a little bit ‘o Wordless Wednesday. I have a toothache, and both kids went to the dentist today. I don’t have it in me to be wordy or inspiring tonight. I really just want to head to bed and catch some much-needed zzz’s. My Eat.Live.Be piece will be here tomorrow. Swear. In the meantime, how about a few pictures?
A local cupcake store recently started offering “savory cupcakes” for lunch, so I grabbed one today to check them out. Bourbon Pulled Pork in a Cornbread Cupcake. BBQ sauce tends to fall into three categories: sweet, spicy, or smoky. This was definitely sweet, so as long as you like that, you’re golden. It definitely hit the spot, but was a teensy bit too sweet. My mom got the Macaroni and Cheese one. It had a great crust on it, but absolutely needed salt.
Dinner which was a homemade chicken pot pie. Total comfort food. Nick picked at it, eating the carrots and the chicken. Surprisingly, Madeline ate her share, nearly every last speck. Original recipe, but I don’t think it’s a wow. It was solid, but not stupendous, so likely this picture is all you get unless I tinker with it more.
Nick was very brave and tears only sprang when that darn Novocaine needle came out. Poor thing. Madeline, my brave soul, pretty much cried through the whole check-up and cleaning, but dried her tears enough to ask for a sticker when the dentist was done. She was shocked, shocked that they didn’t offer lollipops. As if.
Did you guys notice the new Sweetnicks’ banner? I wanted to find a way to incorporate Madeline’s “Love. Love Big” statement (coined here, and already brought to life here), but keep the same general look at feel. I pretty much love it.
Alright my loves, more tomorrow. For now, sleep.
