Tubing is awesome for two reasons: #1) Tubing requires no actual skill or talent other than the ability to flop onto a tube from the back of the boat without misjudging the distance to the tube and sliding off of the front of the tube into the water like a dork. Run-on sentence, anyone? Moving on. Reason B) Tubing requires no skill. Did I mention that already? Tubing is good for my self esteem. I love flying back and forth across the wake, thinking smugly, "man, I am good at tubing. I'm so good at tubing I should enter some kind of contest..." and then I wipe out. But I still feel good about myself for hanging on for so long.
Food wrapped in bacon. I didn't realize this about myself until Sunday when DJ and I made this for dinner:
Jeane's Delicious Grilled Chicken Wrapped in Bacon
6 chicken breasts, cut into 1-2" cubes
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 T chili powder
Bacon slices, cut into thirds
Mix brown sugar and chili powder. Wrap chicken chunks in bacon and skewer with a toothpick. Coat chicken with brown sugar mixture. Grill until done.
Other foods that are made more wonderful simply by wrapping them in bacon: asparagus and jalapenos. Thanks Jeane, for the wonderful chicken recipe! (p.s. Foods that are not wonderful wrapped in bacon: doughnuts, Gatorade, watermelon.)
This hat. My really cute friend Jenn (hi Jenn!) crocheted this little hat and let Tess model it for her Etsy site. Isn't it cute? Cute hat. Cute baby Tess. Cute friend Jenn.
