It's Tuesday, so it must be...
Yet another site courtesy of my friend Amanda...
The funniest damned site I've seen in a long time. I'm dying for Fancy to do something dreadful so I can publicly shame her. Jude and I obsessed over this site for an HOUR, laughing so hard we both cried and slightly peed ourselves.
This is the funniest commercial I've seen in a while. The kids performance is fab...
It's not funny enough to get me to buy a jar of Ragu, but funny nonetheless.
Do y'all remember back during the Royal Wedding how I was lamenting my desperate need for a Wills/Kate Wedding Commemorative Tea Towel? Well, my friend Stacy just got back from Great Britain and guess what she brought me??
I'm sure you all remember Darren from Daddy/Daughter Fun Time, who was my substitute blogger when I first left for New York. Well, just a week or so after his substitute gig, he almost had a heart attack! Had to have a stent put in his heart. Scary stuff! He's on the mend, but he and Lynn and his daughters would certainly appreciate it if you would all keep him in your prayers for a while.
And better yet, drop by his blog and read his hysterical account of his hospital visit. Warning: much talk of man parts. I've told him that he is no longer allowed to feign embarrassment over my tendency to talk about hot flashes and menstruation after I just read two posts about his balls. Anyway, please, please, pretty please do me a favor and visit his blog and leave a comment with a nice long, lingering virtual hug. His posts - Stress Test and Stress Test Part 2. Both hysterical.
My friend Lannyl sent me this in honor of Mommy...
Made this for dinner last night, and it was so good I ate a bowl about the size of my head. It's super easy and quick - 15 minutes to cook.
Summer Shrimp Capellini
1 lb. uncooked shrimp, peeled, deveined, tail on or off
8 oz. (half a package) capellini or angel hair pasta
1/3 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 lb. cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
grated Parmesan cheese
Heat olive oil in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, red pepper, salt, pepper, shrimp and tomatoes. Cook until shrimp is opaque and firm. Cook in 2 batches if your pan isn't large enough to accommodate the entire recipe. Add basil to shrimp and toss quickly. Remove from heat.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Thin pasta cooks quickly, so be alert. Drain. Pour shrimp tomato sauce over the pasta and toss. Serve with Parmesan if desired.
That is all for today. Don't forget to head over to Stacy's for more random goodness.
