make the bed

i'm trying to get back into my "good" habits.
i used to make the bed everyday.
i kinda dropped the ball.
i'm going to frame this and hang it near the bed.
i'll have a gentle reminder every morning.

i finished a few custom hats, last week.
i promise to share them soon.
i may even do a shop update sometime in the near-ish future :-)

i'm gonna feed kitties and go to bed. it's kinda late.

watergate salad.

watergate salad

watergate salad is one of my favorite things ever.
pistachio pudding and marshmallows together?
a delicious dream.

my family always had it at cookouts when i was wee lil' guy.
until recently i had never made it myself.
i could never find a recipe, and wasn't even sure what it was called.
pretty sure it was some secret recipe, i gave up trying to duplicate it.
as it turns out, the recipe has been on the pudding box all this time.

now, i can share it with blogland:

Watergate Salad
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, with juice
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Mix everything together. Refrigerate for at least an hour :-)
