Saturday Sharefest…BOOM!

I’ve decide that Saturday isn’t just for the bloggers or posts I’ve loved all week, but for all the random things I want to share.  I might want to remember this stuff someday, so I may as well throw it up on the blog.

Lucky you.

Let’s start with internet things…

Last week I finished up telling you about the blogs that show up in my Google Reader.  I also have a list on facebook of blogs I like that I don’t want to miss.  Some of the ones in my reader are also on this list, but here are some I haven’t mentioned yet that you should check out.

Mommy Shorts. Ilana cracks me the crap right up. I read almost every post she writes, but only comment sporadically.  To be honest, I just can’t compete with her hilarity.  Anything I would add would just be lame in comparison.  But the funny part?  She reminds me of my best friend in real life.

 Mama’s Losin’ It! I love me some Mama Kat. She is funny, smart, funny.  Funny gets me every time.  I am fairly certain she is one of those bloggers I follow who doesn’t know me, but I am ok with that.  Also?  Her vlogs/videos are some of the only I will watch.  So there’s that.

Sellabit Mum.  Yeah, Tracy is not English or a nun. She is in Minnesota and she has kids. And don’t tell her, but I don’t “get” her blog title.  But I love her.  Her posts bounce between poignant and hilarious.  Really.  I never even know from the title whether I am going to be crying from laughter or empathy.

So yeah…go check those mommas out.

The other thing I was going to share with you today was a fricking delicious recipe for pork loin with a mustard sauce served with yellow squash and zucchini.

It was so yum.

But instead, just as I was going to make the mustard sauce–you know, the thing that ties the whole dish together?  I grabbed the pan handle that had been in the oven.

I didn’t say any swears out loud, but I did cry later.

Yeah. So that sucked.

Instead I will give you the recipe of Cort’s favorite cookie: The Snickerdoodle

I am not really sure why it’s called a “snickerdoodle” since there are neither snickers nor doodles, but hey, here we go…

 

Snickerdoodles

Disclosure: I did not make this recipe up, however I have no idea where it came from.

The Stuff You Need:

1 cup of butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups of flour
2 tsp of cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp of salt
2 Tbs of sugar
2 tsp of cinnamon

What You Do:

> Mix the butter, sugar, and eggs together.
> Stir in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.
> Roll dough into small balls
> mix the 2 Tbs of sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon together in a small bowl
> Roll the dough balls around in the mix
> Bake on an ungreased pan for 10 minutes at 375 degrees F

That’s it.

Then you hide half the batch from the husband so he won’t eat them all in one sitting.

Oh wait!  One more share…

and then my Teacher Heart burst.

Happy Saturday, my peoples.
