AAaaaaaaand, she’s back!

Heeeelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllooooooooooo!?!??!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllllo out there!

Do I still have any readers?  If so, you’re probably wondering where the  heck I’ve been for the last like 3 or 4 months!

Well I guess I’ve really been nowhere really.  I haven’t really felt the urge to blog.  It’s sad I know, but sometimes life happens.  I also haven’t really been keeping up with the list of blogs I follow either, which is also very sad.  Summer is usually the time to catch up on things, and to get those to do lists done, but I feel that this year I didn’t really do any of that.  Booo summer of 2011.  Maybe the fall will help me turn over a new leaf, and get down to business.  I certainly hope so!

I have kept myself busy though,  it’s not like I’ve been sitting around watching Peach Tree TV all day…. well at least not every day.  AND I did complete my first AQ (that’s teacher speak fyi, and it means additional qualifications), so I have officially obtained my ESL part 1.  So there!

AND I have pretty much perfected cake pops.  Yeppers, I’ve jumped on the cake pop train, and am just cruising down the track to perfection.  Woot woot!

Hmmmm, what else, what else….

OH- my brother got married which is super exciting, and it was also a diy wedding.   I took a couple pictures with my cellio, and will post them as soon as I get a computer that works with, and not against my phone.  Why can I not upload pictures to my computer like I so often did in the past?  Well my friends, because of robbers.  That’s right robbers.  In July, we had our house broken into while we were both at work, and a bunch of our stuff was taken.  Scary, yes.  Maddening, yes.  Also quite emotional.  I had a lot of trouble sleeping the first night, just thinking about how strangers had been walking around in our house, with our pets, touching our stuff.  Not ok.  Not cool.  Get your own damn stuff.  That (among other things) is what I would like to say to them…

On a good note though, we’re FINALLY getting our insurance settlement this week, so yay stuff back!  We were lucky they didn’t get a ton of stuff, but it was enough to leave us cursing them for sure.  Anywho, this is why there are no original pics on here today- our camera and computer were taken along with all our pics! 😦

Lesson learned though- back everything up!  EVERYTHING.  An external hard drive will also be purchased this week.  Fo sho.

Whew.   So let’s recap shall we?

1.  Erin is now a master at cake pops.

2.  Erin now has her ESL part 1.

3.  Erin does not like robbers.

4.  Back up everything on your computer.  For reals.

Alright, some what shortish post.  Will slowly make my transition back to the ole blog as soon as I possibly can.

(I checked my stats and apparently some of you actually check my blog daily.  That kind of made my heart feel fuzzy.  So thanks Bai and Sandra.  haha, and whoever else is checking!)

relish today, ketchup tomorrow…

mmmmm hot dogs!

… get it? ketchup tomorrow- haha

what does this have to do with today’s blogging post you ask?  well my friends a lot.

1. this week’s meal is hotdogs.  already know how to cook hotdogs?  yea me too, but here’s the thing i had never done which did make it a valid weekly meal- i had never ever used a barbecue before.  seriously.  my dad thoroughly enjoyed bbqing while growing up, so did my mom, brother, and now matt.  i’ve never really had a reason to learn how when there were so many other people around who wanted to do it.  so when we decided last sunday that we would bbq some hotdogs on what could be the last good weather barbecuing day of the year, i wanted to do it.

2. for those of you who have had the fortunate experience of growing up with me, you should know that i really really really like relish.  so much that last year while at costco, i purchased a GINORMOUS container of relish.  you know what i mean the kind that really only a restaurant or hotdog vendor would need.  not really sure what came over me, but the running joke over the last year was that we should give out relish as our favours at the wedding.  haha.  hilarious.  fyi- we are half way through the container.  so there.  i’m predicting a full finish next summer.

3. i just thought the comment was funny.  and guess where i came up with it?  i actually googled “sayings about hotdogs” in hopes to find a catchy title for this post.  did you know there is actually a company that specializes in hotdog paraphernalia.  you could purchase a mouse pad, t-shirt, pin, shoes, mug or apron if your heart so desires.

alright, back to the experience.  first, i almost set matt’s eye brows on fire- i didn’t realize that you really needed to be quick lighting the barbecue, once you’ve turned on the gas switch.  from there it was pretty uneventful.  the hotdogs weren’t frozen, so they were ready in no time.  i did end up using silver salad tongs because we couldn’t find our normal bbq tongs, and they ended up kind of ripping the hotdogs a bit.  other than that it was fine 🙂  yay hot dogs!  yay bbqs!

ohhhh, don't these look delicious?! perhaps i'll try making these!

Since it was such an “easy” “meal” i’ll see if i can make/post something else little this week to add to it like a dessert i’ve never done….

mmmm dessert.  ohhhhhhhhhh how about a pumpkin dessert of some kind in honour of halloween?!?!  yeaaaaa!

tune in tomorrow- same bat time, same bat channel.

yours truly,

epf. 😛

PS our camera died this weekend, and i can’t find our usb cord…so none of our own pictures for now 😦
