Pottery, The Real Housewives of OC, and Croutons

Pottery~ Today I picked up our finished pottery pieces from Saturday night. Check out how cute everything turned out.

.
The Real Housewives of Orange County~ Tuesday nights episode was SO good; my favorite episode so far. I watched the dinner party scene 3 times. I know the women don’t always behave but that’s what make good television. If they were perfect and sweet, it would be boring. If you watched it, what did you think of Gretchen?

My two favorite lines from Tuesday are from my two favorite housewives, Tamara and Vicki (pictured below in the middle).

“At the dinner table I gave a little warning to Gretchen about Ryan because he’s a man whore.” ~Tamara (Ryan is her son)

“I think the most obvious pot head is Lynn. Lynn just seems way too carefree to not be high all the time.” ~ Vicki

I laughed SO hard!


Croutons~ Today I worked from home (and took a shower). I decided to make a salad for lunch. I was trying to eat really light because I might have dinner tonight at Smith and Wollensky. I LOVE S&W. My salad was boring… veggies, fat free feta cheese, and spray dressing. I decided to make some homemade croutons to spruce up my salad. I really like this idea because I can use whole grain bread and spray butter instead of oil. Well, for some reason I thought I knew how to make croutons. I turned the oven on to broil and popped my chucks of bread in the oven. Next thing I knew, the smoke alarm is going off. Oppps! I decided I should Google the recipe. My next batch was much better. Y’all probably know this but when making croutons you’re supposed to set the oven at a low temperature… 225-250 degrees.

Jana said...

I think your chip and dip ended up being my favorite - I love the pink!

Normally I really like Tamara, but I thought she was absolutely AWFUL on Tuesday. You don't set out to get someone so drunk they do something stupid. You just don't. I think Gretchen was pretty dumb for getting drunk with people she knew she shouldn't trust, and she needs to bear responsibility for that. By the end of the night I did feel a little bad for her though. And for Jeff's kids having to watch that!

Oh well, you're right - it was GREAT television!!! I can't wait for next week.

I love your bowl that you made! And, can I just tell you how happy I am to find someone who also loves Vicki and Tamra (sp?)?! I LOVE them. They can be little witches, but they are hilarious! So many people are loving Gretchen, and I just don't get it! She's a gold digger big time!

Your blog is so cute!! I want to drag my husband there and paint some pottery.

Danielle said...

I had no idea that you could even make croutons :)

The pottery is so cute! I love those chip and dip bowls. Yours is SO you.

Thanks for helping with the post tonight. Hopefully we aren't the only ones that will think it's funny!

Sleep well. Talk tomorrow.

Whoo Hoo!!! I love it!!! We voted for Jindal back in Louisiana. I couldn't believe Blanco got in (glad he's in office now). Hubby works with
Texas/Louisiana/Mississippi legislation for healthcare laws. We are huge pro Jindal supporters. Try being a Republican living in Austin. I've seen enough ugly bumper stickers to fill my entire life time. Dirty Hippies! We refer to Austin as, "earth muffin." Pros and cons no matter where you live. Hook'em Horns!!!
