Taste Tester

When I ask Mr. K to taste test something, it’s usually a finished recipe that I am happy with. When he asks me to taste something, it’s something that has spoiled and he wants me to confirm it. After obliging for several years, I’ve finally decided enough is enough. I refuse to test his questionable foods. I think he’s old enough to figure out if something has gone bad and if it tastes off, it should just be tossed rather than risk getting sick.

We hope everyone has a great weekend!

First, he’s convinced he has to buy a ton of new tools to do his project. Then for several days he’ll be completely engrossed in his new project, spending every moment of his free time working on it. And then after a few days, he’ll abandon it. His projects have resulted in us buying a sewing machine (he wanted to alter his own clothes), half a dozen wood cutting tools (he was going to built furniture), ruined baking pans (he used them to bake mini clay figures)…the list goes on. …Continue reading
