My father was the kind of person who can whip up a perfectly respectable meal from the top of his head, no recipes required. I guess some people are just born that way: they know, instinctively, which pinch of this and which dash of what go well together.
And after you get married, they’ll start pestering you to have kids. And your friends getting married (or getting pregnant) one after another is no help at all. K and I have been together for 6 years and neither of us have siblings. Imagine that–sometimes I think our relatives are more excited for our wedding than we are, haha.
I’ve never heard heard of Flamings Wings‘ apparently much-revered Wicked Oreos before I posted these photos to my Facebook last week and my officemates started asking me how I made them (one officemate went to Flaming Wings the next day because she craved for their Wicked Oreos after seeing my version). Truth is, K and I just saw Ann Ward in America’s Next Top Model make these, thought they sounded yummy, and forgot about it. It wasn’t until we got a free dessert platter from The Old Spaghetti House that included three of these that I remembered we wanted to try it out.
When K first ordered this at Pancake House, I thought it’s a bit weird. Pancakes with a side of bacon I’ve heard of, but I can’t say the idea of ever eating Bacon Pancakes ever crossed my mind before he made me take a bite. I didn’t even know anyone did that, you know, adding something that isn’t sweet to pancakes.
