Dinner Clean Up
So my first story for my first "Bramber" post (which isn't really fun or exciting) is about our dinner clean up yesterday. Brant's going to be embarrassed, but that's what blogs are for - right???
For the last month or so, Brant and I have been buying Bountiful Baskets. (If you live anywhere that Bountiful Baskets is offered, we highly recommend it!) It's a co-op thing where we go and pick up literally a basket full of fruits and vegetables each Saturday that we pay for it. We have gotten all kinda of new fruits and vegetables that we've never bought before. And it's nice because it forces us to snack on fruits and veggies instead of nasty junk food.
Well last time we got Bountiful Baskets, we got 4 artichokes. What the crap am I supposed to do with 4 artichokes? So I look up a recipe for some artichoke dip to have with some french bread. I learned how to steam artichokes and it actually turned out pretty well. I was proud of myself.
disposal is for. I'm going to just throw this whole pile of artichoke leaves down the drain when she isn't looking." Sure enough, the minute I wasn't looking, Brant pours all the artichoke leaves down the drain. My sink now looks exactly like a clogged toilet...floaties and all (Too far?? ha) So now what are we supposed to do???
Well since Brant is so creative, he decides that since it looks like a clogged toilet, why not treat it like a clogged toilet...Yes...he actually takes our plunger that we use for the bathroom and plunges are sink...
Lovely, right? I didn't think so either. Don't worry though! I made him sanitize the plunger before he used it in the sink. And sanitize the bath tub and the sink after he used the plunger in it.
Anyways, I'd love to say that I think Brant learned his lesson not to put a bunch of artichoke leaves down the garbage disposal, but only time will tell...Especially because he was successful, we'll never really know.
