Funny Friday - March 2015

I love Fridays. A different post/challenge each week and you never know what's going to happen. Funny photos, tid bits from life, random words and secret subjects. Be sure to stop by every Friday.

Easter is almost upon us and with that comes the rush of recipes...I've been entirely too busy to come up with anything new, so I'm sharing a recipe from a few years ago. DELICIOUS candy, not a pretty picture but that's okay.
Holidays have always been a big deal for me, tons of cooking and feeding my friends and family. Now with my kids grown, gone and living with my mom I'm not sure what will happen this year. I miss cooking and having everyone over but I know that in time I will be able to do this again. And I also know that it will be even better than ever. 2015 has been the best year I've had in a really long long time and I am anticipating each year getting better!
Happy (early) Easter!!

Today's Fly On The Wall Post....

What did you do for St. Patrick's Day? I worked in the yard with my mom and then we went out to dinner as a treat for ourselves. I also found out that I have NOTHING green in my closet! So... I painted my nails green :)
Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 15 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Life is very busy, school, work, taking my son back and forth to work, homework, social life, house work, kitties, sleep...oh wait, what's that last one?

Be sure to see my earlier post today, the CIC post. YUM - each month I give 2 ingredients to a group of bloggers and we create something new.

Here is LMSP and her... interesting outfit. She cracks me up!
Phone calls:
A: Hey I was calling to see if you're home
Me: Well, you called the house and I answered so I guess I am.
A: Oh yeah I did, LOL.
Me: so are you coming over?
A: No I was just wondering if you were home
Me: smh...

B: Good morning, are you asleep?
Me: Not anymore
B: Did I wake you?
Me: Nope I was just laying here with my eyes closed waiting for the phone to ring
I'm a little sarcastic early in the morning...depending on who it is.

Here's your sign...
I'm washing dishes and my mom walks up to me:
Mom: what are you doing?
Me: building a rocket ship
Mom: smartie
Me: well, I'm washing dishes, it's kind of obvious isn't it
Mom: well I meant what are you doing?
Me: HELLO washing dishes, that's the same question.
oh lawd help me

I'm making a salad and my mom walks in:
Mom: hmmm whatca doing?
Me: Working on a microwave what does it look like?
Mom: ugh, well it looks like you're making a salad
Me: well then why did you ask what I was doing?
Mom: I don't know and walks out 

My oldest son and his wife bought a new puppy, LMSP tells me: when Daddy and A are at work the puppy goes to the other house. What house I asked. I don't know, the other house. I asked my son about it, he said WHAT? the puppy stays home. We're all confused.

My new grand pup is HULK an adorable black and white pit. OMGosh he is Adorable! Only 5 weeks old and he has stolen all our hearts! Except for Story, my DIL's cat, HE does NOT like the puppy.

Sitting in the doctors office with my son and he says "let me tell you about this dream, if it was, I'm not sure."
I said okay tell me.
He says "I'm laying on the couch and the kitchen light flips on, grandmama walks through and looks out the front door, she turns around and I'm sitting up on the couch wide eyed looking at her, she falls to the floor and crab walks out through the kitchen tries to reach up to the light switch without standing and goes down the hall."
I'm cracking up! J**** that DID NOT happen, you know my mother did not crab walk down the hall!" LOL
He shrugs, well it seemed real and I was sitting up awake.
OMG He keeps me in stitches!

Have a great day and weekend, remember to visit the other bloggers.

Cauliflower and Cheese Fritters - CIC March 2015

Welcome to the March version of the CIC - Crazy Ingredient Challenge. Each month I assign two ingredients to our group of bloggers and then we each set about creating a new never before posted recipe to share on the 20th of the month. Recently we've been voting on the ingredients and this month it is really a simple/common pairing. So I wanted to see if I could come up with something different. I decided to make a fritter. They were yummy and I really enjoyed them.

2 cups raw cauliflower florets
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp black pepper
salt to taste (1/4-1/2 tsp)
1 egg
1/4 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
3 TBSP flour
Blanco Queso cheese sauce
dab olive oil
Mix all of the ingredients with the mashed cauliflower EXCEPT for the last 2 ingredients.
Form patties and drop into a hot skillet with a dab of extra virgin olive oil
Flip when brown, this only takes a couple of minutes, turn and brown the other side.
Serve plain or top with more cheese, a cheese sauce or whatever else you can think of.
