Thursday’s This & That

by Cait on November 10, 2011

I’ve eaten a lot of good things this week. And I’ve even taken photos (I swear!) – I just unfortunately haven’t had time to blog so for this Thursday I’m hijacking Katie’s “Thursday Things” (hijacked from Jess’ “Tuesday Things”) inserting “This & That” and running with it :)

1. I went to the store hungry last night and the resulting purchases certainly reflected that. One such buy were these Way Better Snacks Sweet Potato chips – they were wonderful. Go make your Thursday way better and buy them.

2. I want to make these and this …like right now.

3. I got a new job here (hence why I’ve been a bit scattered lately).

4. My co-workers at my new job are incredible.  The things they do with their time astound me.  Case in point, this is one of my co-workers blogs.  And this was the cake her husband made for her birthday.  Spend some time on her blog…you won’t regret it.

5. This was what the art department did for Halloween.

6. I’m so obsessed with my pepperoni mozzarella bread from the other night – I cannot wait to make my own.

7. Make these muffins…er, doughnuts? Either way, make them. Then eat them at a rapid pace and repeat the process from start to finish. It’s a wonderful, vicious cycle.

8. I miss my sister! How is it that this and this were nearly a month ago!?

9. This is perhaps the cutest thing I have seen in a long while.  How did my sister make such stinkin’ cute kids?  I think I should ask this girl because she seems to have done it too.

AHhh! Yes! I just responded back to your comment that you SHOULD do Thursday Things, too.

Oh my goodness, those veggie stacked enchiladas need to be in my kitchen NOW.

That KITCHENAID cake?! Are you kidding me?! That is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen. I already have a deep seeded love affair with my red kitchenaid mixer, but if it was made out of CAKE? I feel like I might faint right now.

The only thing more awesome than that cake is Madeline singing Dora. Can I come nibble on her cheeks, please?

Cait's Plate November 10, 2011

Hahah yes! I will go nibble them with you! I mean I think if her and Adrienne were put in a room together the world would explode of cuteness!

And I know – I read her blog and struggle between being incredibly impressed and also feeling like a complete and utter failure at life. Haha. The talent there is a little overwhelming!!

I looked at your recipe for the muffins, and will be making them hopefully this weekend! Sometimes I get intimidated by too many or obscure ingredients, but your recipe looks simple enough. Also, your job sounds amazing. What an incredible way to live your passions!
