As Punky is not an overly paranoid person she kept blogging. She was preparing to rave about the movie night her and Funkbobito had. They had a real treat of a dinner with wine cheese, sausages and fruit. Nothing like munchies for dinner. But her unease arose again, but she just simply blamed it on the atrocity of a film that The Brothers Grimm really was.
She returned to her blogging hoping to actually get something posted. And after a vegetarian meal that was to die for, she thought this would be the day. Roasted veggies and home alone beans were a hit, even with Funkbobito (who believes a meal really should have meat). But something was still not quite right.
So Punky let her vicious attack dog outside to do her business. When she returned something was not quite right.
So Punky went outside to check out what was going on. It was then that she saw the carnage, the horror, the cushion...
Her blood curdling scream was only in her head, but the fountain of expletives that spewed from here lips was definetly audible. She wondered what would lead to such a violent act on a mere six month old cushion. What had it done to deserve this? She thought of all the logical explanations (Kraft sends warning to stop referring to their products, the Foodies mob is placing a hit on her for the large use of convenience foods, Columbian drug lords hid their stash in her Pier One cushion before it shipped out and they have been searching for it for the last 6 months, etc). There was always the improbable chance that it was a squirrel trying to build a nest. But she decided it was really a curse from the Blogger gods for not keeping her blog updated. The terror of further hostility towards her outdoor furniture has led her to post and she has taken this warning to heart.
Anytime Funkbobito and I go to Greek restaurants for dinner we ALWAYS get gyros. While I would love to tell you that I made gyros (meat and all) tonight, lets get real and remember whose blog we are reading here. No we made Greek Steak Pitas (adapted from Cooking Light). The flavor of this was great and easy to put together. HOWEVER, I will not be using flank steak again. This is the second time I have tried it and the second time I found it tough and stringy. Ahh the curse of being raised by a farming family. Anyways this recipe will be one that can stick around, but I will use strip or something a bit more tender next time.
Tomorrow we are trying some recipes from Martha Stewart. I can't really stand her and have only made her cookies so we'll see how we end up liking these new recipes. Oh and on a totally girly note, I get to go buy my wedding shoes tomorrow, YEAH!! Can't wait to see them with my dress on Friday. Now this is the fun part of wedding planning.
Just a mom, sharing our life on this little blog.
