Spectacular Strawberry Shortcake

I’ve written before about strawberry shortcake… and how I learned to like it served in a way I had never experienced before I met my wife and her family. This way is the only strawberry shortcake my daughters have known and it’s really easy to make.

Now, in a first for my blog, my oldest steps out from behind the camera and stars in our first ever baking video!

What type of strawberry shortcake do you like?

What I’m Into Right Now – May 2018

How is it already time for another one of these? Feels like it was just last week that I did April’s round-up of things I’m into… and now here it’s time to share what has my attention as we enter May.

What I’m Into Right Now – May 2018

Girl Going Nowhere – I’m a big fan of this debut album from Ashley McBryde. It’s a great one from start to finish. You can read more about it in my review here.

Adobe Sessions – This Cody Jinks album is a few years old but it’s a great one. For anyone complaining about “pop country” I would recommend checking out this album. It’s been on repeat in my headphones as I’ve been doing yard work. Can’t wait to see him do some of these songs in concert later this month.

Sneaky Pete – I’ve already worked my way through season 1 of this Amazon Prime Exclusive show and just started season 2. This show features identity theft, interesting family dynamics, and some mystery. You can read the Amazon description here.

Spending time outside – Finally, the weather has turned and it’s been nice to be outside. I’ve enjoyed doing some Spring yard work, getting our garden ready to plant… and GRILLING!

YouTube Comedy Clips – Part of my job requires me to do a little data entry each day. It’s not difficult but requires concentration. I usually like to listen to something while working on it and recently I started listening to comedians on YouTube. Mitch Hedberg, Steven Wright, and Demetri Martin are some of my favorites.

What I’m Into Right Now – April 2018

Typically, I write these posts on the 1st of the month but Easter this year fell on April 1st.  That meant Easter Sunrise service in the cemetery to start the day… a little napping throughout the day… and a little time spent working on an April Fool’s prank video.

By the time all that was all done, I was tired and uninspired.  But fear not! I’m back with another monthly installment of some of the things I’m digging right now.

What I’m Into Right Now – April 2018

Cinnamon Bears – Sure, we’re coming off a time of Easter chocolates, jelly beans, Peeps, Peeps, and Cadbury Creme Eggs… but one of my favorite candies of all time is Cinnamon Bears. A few weeks ago my wife got me a 2-pound bag and I’ve been working my way through it just a few bears at a time.

Lime Water – This isn’t some new fancy drink you can buy at the corner convenience store. I’ve simply been adding a quick squeeze of lime juice concentrate to my ice water. We ended up with an extra plastic lime full of juice at home so I took one to keep in my work refrigerator.  It’s funny how just a little lime has me drinking more water.

Deception – I’ve always been a fan of magic shows… but this ABC TV show is a different kind of magic show. It features a magician who is helping the FBI solve crimes… in hopes they can help him exonerate his twin brother who was framed (and convicted) for murder. It’s equal parts magic, comedy, action, and drama.

Drunk Girl – This Chris Janson song isn’t getting much radio play (yet) but I really love this song… for both the music and the content. With a title like “Drunk Girl”, you might think this is an upbeat party tune.  Actually, it’s a stripped down, piano-heavy tune about a guy who does the right thing. If I had teen boys I’d play this song to them as an example of what a true gentleman would do.

Throat Coat Tea – I’ve been fighting a cold lately that’s given me a sore throat which can be an occupational hazard when you have a daily 5-hour radio show to do. This tea not only tastes great but it really soothes a sore throat.
