My huggable attempt at cooking. Part 3.

You’re probably scratching your head thinking my huggable attempt at cooking? So was I. I’ve had a post about my half-ass attempt at cooking and my pathetic attempt at cooking but since I’ve been slacking off, I asked my husband what’s worse than pathetic.

I was having brain freeze without the ice cream and couldn’t think of anything. That’s when he said huggable. I swear the guy has selective hearing. I was standing in the kitchen having a Twilight Zone moment and I started thinking well shit, I haven’t been using the word huggable correctly all this time.

That’s when I asked him are you sure huggable is worse than pathetic and he said yes. Then I started thinking about when the little hummingbird was just a baby and so cute and squishy. I would tell people that she’s so huggable and I just want to hug her in my arms all the time. So I thought well shit, here I was saying my daughter was huggable when really I was saying that she’s worse that pathetic.

Then I thought wait a freaking minute and asked my hubby the question again. That’s when he said oh, I thought you asked me to give you a word that describes me. It was an Awww moment but the awww wore off and I told him see, you never listen to me. He was like yes I do and I said Really? I ask you what’s worse than pathetic and you say huggable which makes me think I’m losing my mind.

A few minutes later I told him you know, this is going in a blog post, right? And he said whatever I can do to help.

I haven’t been cooking that often like I was hoping to because I’m just not domestic at.all. I cook for my daughter but when it comes to dinner I run and hide I’m just so clueless as far as what to make. I have so many cookbooks and at the beginning of the week I tell myself I’ll find some easy recipes and write down the ingredients for my shopping list.

I’d blame my lack of doing so on the little hummingbird and how I don’t have time to sit down and go through recipes, which I don’t, but when I do get a bit of free time, I spend it catching up with celebrity gossip Arnold Schwarzenegger is such a douche but it’s not at all surprising, reading the awesome Tina Fey book, Bossypants, or watching a few minutes of my newly arrived dvd set of the kick ass show Slings & Arrows.

See, I don’t have time for planning meals or cooking Ha!. But like I’ve said in my previous cooking posts, I want to make an effort for my daughter and give my hubby a break.

A few weeks ago I came across a blog and saw a recipe for Buffalo Mac and Cheese. I was actually looking for a certain cupcake recipe since my hubby’s birthday is coming up soon and I came across the Mac and Cheese. I knew I HAD to make it.

got the wrong cheese substituted the pepper jack cheese for monterey jack but it was still yummy. It was spicy and delicious comfort food. Nom Nom! The hummingbird had mac and cheese without the spiciness. You can find the recipe here.

I’m trying to eat healthier, not to lose weight although that would be nice, and obviously this isn’t a healthy dish but you wouldn’t even want to try to make it healthier. Just enjoy!

I found this YouTube video a few years ago and love it. This is pretty much how I am when it comes to cooking, honey badger don’t give a shit. Well, except I don’t run into the ocean to catch a fish.

    Hey I don’t cook much either! I actually do like cooking when the urge seizes me, which these days, is like, never. I have a bunch of awesome cookbooks which I haven’t looked at in ages, and that my toddler likes to pour water on with his water bottle.

    If you looked at my fridge, you’ll find chocolate and milk. (hey I actually did blog about the contents of my fridge)

    But that mac & cheese looks awesome! And my husband doesn’t listen to me much either.

    And I like your daughter’s nickname.

      This mac and cheese is SO good. I think as soon as the wedding ring goes on a guys finger, they have some secret switch that turns on so they never have to hear us again. Maybe the switch is in their ring finger so as soon as the ring slides over the switch, it gets activated. Not that I’ve ever thought about this or anything. 😉
