Meat Lover's Pizza Pop Casserole

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

So apparently my last post was too graphic… according to Ninja’s raised eyebrows LOL.

So I would like to refer you to my second post HERE, #6 clearly states…

I don't believe in censorship. I sometimes rant, I sometimes have a bad day, I sometimes talk about crass things. EXAMPLE: A while back I was brushing my teeth before bed and I glopped a giant toothpaste glop on myself. I quickly stripped off my shirt. As I sat and counted out my 2 minutes of brushing I leaned over a bit. I ACTUALLY looked like I had udders! I sat on the toilet just looking at my boobs. They used to be so perky. I used to love my boobs. Now they are just milkbags that actually droop. When I lean over they look like water balloons that have sadly sprung a leak. If this offended you... STOP READING and move on. I do appreciate comments, feedback and even debates but I am warning you now and I will not apologize for writing my thoughts, feelings and opinions. This is the forum that I chose to do just that.

Most people reading this are Mommies. As a Mommy you have had everyone in at least 1 hospital see EVERY inch of you, inside and out. As a Mommy you have probably caught puke in your hands. In fact you have probably caught poop in your hands too (HBear’s 1st time at the beach without a diaper *groan*). As a Mommy you have and will do many disgusting things you never imagined doing to yourself let alone another human being.

So, I got my period.

Move on.


Today I grocery shopped and scowled.

Speaking of shopping I forgot to tell you an embarrassing story lol A few days before Xmas I was at WalMart wandering around trying to find stocking stuffers for Ninja. Why is it so hard to think of stocking stuffers? On FaceBook My Mommy site put together a list of some things for your partner. I jotted down a few and went browsing. I had to get pink wrapping paper anyways LOL

So I got the paper first and a bag of pink and silver bows J

As I was walking I stopped to get Vitamin D for SBean. As I turned into the pharmacy section I noticed a RollBack sign. Those signs ALWAYS catch my eye lol.

Hmmmm, his and her lubricant. That could be fun or at least FUNNY! OMG there was a little bunny thingy too, ON SALE!

Ta Da. Ninja will think I am either awesome or freaking hilarious!

So I put my risky purchases on top of the wrapping paper and put the bag of bows on top. So there I am walking through WalMart kinda blushing and I hear, “Hi there!”

I stopped and looked up and of course everything on the wrapping paper fell off onto the floor.

So there is THE PRESIDENT of the PAC kneeling down to pick up my dirty stocking stuffers.

She was totally cool about it LOL She picked up the vibrating thingy and handed it to me and said “Well, isn’t your husband a lucky guy?”

I blushed and mumbled something inaudible. OMG Why do these things happen to me? LOL

Tonight I am making a meatlover pasta baked thing. Ninja said it tasted just like a pizza pop. I totally agree! Next time I will stuff puff pastry with it and see if I can create the perfect Pizza Pop LOL
