Beignets Make it Better

    I haven't been feeling well the last two days. A terrible combination of a bug and a migraine. As I began to feel better this evening, something struck me. Beignets! (not literaly) No one was throwing donuts at me from the kitchen, although it wouldn't surprise me.

    I decided I wanted some beignets. I remembered that we had a slightly expired box of beignet mix in the pantry.

    For those of you that know me: No... I didn't lose my marbles.... its dry mix, flour really. It was still pretty safe, only 2 weeks expired. For those of you that don't know me: I am wacko on expiration dates. If it is a day expired, it goes in the trash!

"Adam...... Will you do something for me please?"

He rolls his eyes. With a sigh "What?"

"I would love if you would make me some beignets......" ....I sweetly smile.

"That's really what you want to eat?" He looks slightly confused.



This might seem like it is a special occurance, but this interaction takes place at least weekly at my house, sometimes biweekly. Except, its always different tasks. Sometimes its cooking, sometimes its childcare, sometimes its an errand. I'm so blessed to have a husband that loves to takes care of me. Back to my story....

10 Minutes later....

Five minutes after that.......

Two minutes later.......

Of course, I had to share!

Thanks Adam! I love you too!
