My husband has a Nike windbreaker which is very nice, looks good on him, and is perfect for warmish days. I do like it but since I always make snarky comments, I tease him that he looks like a little league baseball coach in it. I'll call him "Coach" and ask him how his boys are doing, to which he usually grins back at me.
So the other day we were headed out:
Branden: Where's my jacket?
Me: Oh, the International Coach's Association came by and took it away because they didn't want you impersonating a coach anymore. *big smile on innocent face *blink *blink
We got quite a good laugh over that one. I'm lucky my husband understands my humor. I do tease everyone. I only don't tease someone if I don't like them, so if anything, my husband should be nervous if I ever stop teasing him!
*Coach getting some good luck for his team!
And now for something completely different! Since we don't usually keep dessert items in the house, if we decide that we want something we have to create it. One of our favorites is my no-bake Nutella cookies. Since this is just a random creation, I don't measure anything, so I'll just have to 'translate' what I do.
Granola (whatever kind you like. I like a basic kind with almonds and raisins)
Put a pot on your stovetop and melt about a tablespoon full of butter in it. Scoop in about 4 big scoops of Nutella into the melted butter. Add a little bit of milk to thin it. Stir it until it is a good smooth chocolate sauce. You don't want it to be too thin and runny but more like a melted chocolate bar. When it is right, mix in your granola. Add enough to completely coat the granola but not drown it. Let it cool enough for you to touch it and enough to keep a shape.
On a greased plate or cookie sheet, make cookie shapes out of your mix. If you wish to add a bit of jam (raspberry is my favorite!) then make them in a nest shape. Stick them into the fridge or freezer to set. When they are solid, you can add jam, eat them with ice cream, or just eat them on their own. They are very rich and very sweet so I can usually can only eat 1 in a sitting. Adjust the recipe as you need, this recipe will make about 6 cookies (I think). Enjoy!
