The Friday Five Good Things


 Five good things that happened this week.

1. With the old router, I never had issues speed issues working at the back of the house. With the new router, I felt like I was back using dial-up. Himself checked and fished the wire through the ceiling and we had enough slack to move the router from the basement upstairs to the kitchen.  No more first world problems.

2. While watching the Patriots game, Himself fried the eggplant for eggplant Parmigiana, the side dish at all our special occasion and holiday dinners.

3. Took a nap and woke up in time to start dinner, but found Himself in the kitchen taking over

4. Finished watching The Queen's Gambit on Netflix

5. I forgot to buy whipping cream or whipped topping, but found a Dream Whip recipe to make whipped topping for the pie and apple crisp, and I had the ingredients in the pantry

How was your week?

  1. My internet is high speed. When it wants to be. The rest of the time I could kick it! Your week sounds good, have a great weekend, too, stay safe! Valerie

  2. Sounds like a nice enough week to me. What is "whapping" cream?

    My mom and I are planning on baking cookies on Sunday all day. Haven't done that in a few years so should be fun.

    1. What's whapping cream? It's a typo for whipping cream! 😺 Thanks for catching it.

  5. That's great about the router. We were just talking today about getting one. And you also have a cook in the family that takes over at times. I've totally given up all cooking to him - he enjoys it and I don't.

  6. A new router might be the answer for our frequent problems.

    1. Or if you can relocate your router to a more central area of the house. Ours was in the basement.

  7. My internet is much faster than before I got fiber optics. I bought whipping cream, but didn't buy pumpkin because I thought I had it. Sounds like your week was better than mine in that respect. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, dear CJ.

    1. The Dream Whip recipe worked well, but I should have made half. The peaks of the whip that was saved broke down in the fridge by the following day. No worries was a treat in my tea

  10. Did you love the Queen's Gambit? I really enjoyed it. And I love it when I find my hubby in the kitchen making a meal. And if he could fix the internet speed, that would be even better! I'm catching up. If you can't tell!

  11. I like it when my husband takes over the kitchen :) I need a different Eggplant Parmesan recipe. I made it once years ago and nobody would eat it except me lol The eggplant was like sweet potatoes in being hard as rocks and hard to deal with. I never tried it again lol

    1. Sounds like the eggplant wasn't ripe? They are firm, but not hard to slice. Not like trying to cut a turnip that I nearly lost my hand when trying to cut through that.

    2. I'll keep that in mind, thx! It'd be worth trying again. _I_ liked it ;)
