I like Thursday: Brookie, Metalwork and Pigs in a Bowl

The one New Year's resolution I have been enjoying is trying out new recipes to bring to Game Day.  The latest was Chocolate Chip Skillet Brookie.  I don't have a cast iron skillet, so this was baked in a 9" pan.  Ooh, I liked this - so did everyone.  I think it would be best as the original recipe suggested and eaten warm, with ice cream.  But it was hot on Game Day, and I didn't want to have to fire up their oven.  So I came with it ice cold... which was also delicious.  Which was obvious by the empty plate I brought home.

(I also brought Chai-Spiced Snowball Cookies, which I've made before and were also all gone before I came home.)

I like Cards Against Humanity.  A terrible, hilarious game.  Laughed until my sides hurt. 

I liked this iron fence we saw while out.

I like the new hair stick I bought at NEFFA last month.  The woman that sold it told me I had slippery hair - it's hard to work with.  I've never had one of these before.  I've been playing with it all month, practicing putting it in, and trying to make it work.  I think I have finally gotten the hang of it.  Isn't it pretty?

I like pigs in a bowl.  Especially when they can behave for five minutes at a time.  Mabel has only been with us for three weeks, but she continues to settle nicely.  Wedgwood still doesn't want to share, but is starting to lose interest in snapping at Mabel.  Takes too much energy!  Besides, it's kind of nice to have company - someone to burble at and follow around the house.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to enjoy the other likes at Not Afraid of Color's I Like Thursday.


  1. Hi there, btw, I loved your story of Mabel at the vet and glad there was a happy ending. Skillet cake sounds wonderful and your hair pin is beautiful.

  2. The hair stick is beautiful! I've been wearing my hair in a bun a lot this summer, it's grown out so much that even a ponytail is too hot and sticky on my neck, so maybe I should look for one. But the pigs-in-a-bowl really take the cake. They're so cute, you can never have too many pig pictures.

  3. That mabel is teaching us lessons... when someone nips at you, they lose interest if ignored. I like wearing a hair stick, I use wooden ones so maybe they stick better in slick hair. You come in at opposite angle, and tilt back to slide into place. Both cookies sound good, I hope to return to baking in the next home as it has a wall oven. No bending with heavy trays.

  4. Hi Sally! Awwwwww, pigs in a bowl. That is such a sweet picture. And the title really makes me smile! All right - you are your baking! I'm going to follow the link for this recipe and make it - maybe even this weekend. Thank you for sharing it, and for being the guinea pig so to speak for trying them out. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Your baking always looks so yummy - thanks for sharing the new recipe! Have not played Cards Against Humanity, but have heard of it, so I think we need to learn it! Your pigs in a bowl photo is priceless!

  6. Cool hair piece... and YES PIGGIES IN A BOWL!!! <3
