Lawd, it’s been a week!
I’m spent, y’all…and in need of some comfort, damn it!
Longtime readers know that a bitch is a fan of bitchfirmations.
I’m also big on basic home-based comfort. Nothing feeds the soul like a good sorta-beagle snuggle in my couch-based lair, a yummy home cooked sometimes food meal or the blessed nostalgia of Girl Scout cookies.
So, to feed my soul and inspire you to fee yours, I offer up some comfort in these times of disturbitude.
Loving on your pets…
If you’ve got a sorta-beagle, odds are you’re used to their need to burrow under the blankets and snuggle. If you don’t have a dawg companion you may want to consider getting one. Even on the worst days my dawg friends make me feel better…from the joy they express when I come home (probably related to the fact that I feed them, but fuck it…I’ll project as I wish!) to the peace of watching a sleeping snoring sorta-beagle in the morning before I have to shake it awake and drag it’s reluctant ass outside into the frozen tundra that is our backyard…yeah, there’s nothing like being a dawg parent!
This weekend I plan to get my sorta-beagle snuggle on…big time!
If you don’t know slow cookers…well, you should! I love to toss shit into my slow cooker this time of year. I cook on low and start a dish in the morning…and when I come home the house is full of yummy smells and resentful dawgs.
For carnivores I recommend pot roast or stews. Toss in a roast, some veggies, lost of spices and onion, some Worcestershire sauce and a glass of red wine…and then cook on low for at least 8 hours.
For veggie eaters…I’ve had this vegetarian chili dish and it is yumtastic!
Hook up some corn bread and get about the bitness of eating!
Something to look forward to...
Oh, thank the gods.
The Girl Scouts are changing some names, but Thin Mints will be Thin Mints so all is right with the world.
Just the smell of Girl Scout cookies takes me back to when I was a wee bitch trying to convince my father to let me sell those fuckers at his office.
Add friends and family to taste.
Anyhoo, whatever you do to seek comfort and warmth…do it!
Be warm, be safe and have a fantabulous weekend…
