Conversation with The Mister

I'll admit that I tend to have a playful spirit when it comes to those I know well.

That is never more true than when I am interacting with The Mister.

I always enjoy teasing him, especially when he is unable to reciprocate.

For example, last night as he was washing dishes--with his soapy hands washing bits of scrambled egg from the pan, I walked passed him and gave his rump a little smack, a bit harder than I had intended.

"You think you can spank me and get away with it?" he asks.

"Uh... yup." I say (from across the room) with an impish grin.

Then I boldly add, "I can spank who I want, when I want."

"Oh yeah?" he says, calmly.


"Can you spank Brad Pitt?" he asks like he knows he's stumped me.

I start to giggle thinking about spanking Brad Pitt.

He starts to laugh like its the funniest thing he's said all week.

Still makes me laugh.

It reminds me of this post when the kids revealed something about The Mister and I that was a bit revealing....No wonder they think the things they do!

Let's change the about a recipe?

This is a recipe my dear friend Jen with One N made for our Mom's Group retreat back in the Texas this recipe, but those girls? Love them WAY more!

Creme Brulee French Toast
1 stick unsalted butter (if using salted butter omit salt below)
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbls corn syrup
8-9 inch loaf of french bread --sliced into 1"-1.5" slices
5 large eggs
1 1/2 cups Half-in-Half cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp Grand Marnier (optional)

IN a small sauce pan melt butter , brown sugar and corn syrup over med. heat, stirring until smooth. Pour into a greased (BE SURE TO GREASE THE PAN!) 13x9x2 inch baking pan. Place six- eight slices of bread in one layer, squeezing to fit, into the pan (on top of caramel mixture).

Whisk together eggs, creamer, vanilla salt and GM in a bowl. Pour over bread, cover and place in the fridge for at least 8 hours up to one day. I usually make this the afternoon or evening before I want to serve it.

Place in the oven uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Serve with strawberries and whip cream for extra fanciness.

Oh, YAY!!

My turn. :) Put your first three ingredients into a saucepan (identical measurements) over med-high heat. Bring to a boil, then continue cooking 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 t baking soda. Pour over 6 c popped popcorn and stir well.

If you like it gooey, eat it just like that. If you like it crispy ...

Toss all this in a deep dish and bake at 200'F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to be sure all popcorn is evenly coated. ENJOY!

I'm sorry. I would comment but you have Brad Pitt, creme brulee, and Grand Marnier in the same post.

I have lost all reason.

Andrea said...

Mmmm spanking Brad Pitt and a yummy recipe in the same blog, you made my Friday:-)

O Mom said...

You have Brad and Jen in the same post. Interesting.
(Apparently I am still upset over their breakup)

Gretchen said...

You had me at: (he) was washing dishes.

I need to pause.

Okay. I'm back. The french toast sounds too good to be legal.

<3 you

So much going on here - male diswashing, Brad (laughing about the Google hits you'll get for "spanking Brad Pitt" searches, the french toast!). I need to try this recipe!!

Cooking with liquor last time, I must have measured incorrectly, since my teetotaler husband said it was really, really, really strong.

LJ said...

So you like your toast more than the girls with the most? The recipe made me seriously hungry! It must have been the butter and corn syrup together - I'm a little Paula Deenish these days.

You know LJ, I read that over and over this morning to make sure it said I love y'all more than the recipe...and I thought it was right! I've changed it...

That just goes to show you that I sure never blog before the third cup of coffee!

love ya! (more than my toast)

That's so cute!!

I might have to "borrow" your list of questions... I'm dying to know what my boys would say!!

OMG - just re-read your blog titile on my blog roll. I orginally thought it said Minister not Mister!! Was wondering how you got away with playing with his bottom!!!!!!!!

Such The Spot said...

Putting creme brulee and french toast in the same recipe is just wrong. But since you did it, who am I to pass on it? I've just added this to next weekend's breakfast menu. My tastebuds, I'm sure, will thank you. My hips? Eh, probably not so much...

Unknown said...

haha that totally cracked me up - sounds just like me and my hubby! And that recipe sounds delicious!!!

I can personally vouch for this recipe!! I need to make it again in my near future. I may try Tanya's recipe this very night.
