Weekend Wish List

I had a really busy week and Scott was traveling on business for most of it.  I am wiped out.

Between working, housework, cooking, cleaning, and looking after this little girl I am ready for the weekend and hopefully some R & R.

This is what’s on my Weekend Wish List:

1. Baking.  I love to bake and create and make things and am excited to see what I can come up with.


I have about 237 recipes that I’ve seen that I want to make, but I’m not sure which one(s) I will tackle

2. Someone to finance an expedition here

And I’ll take one of everything from the makeup counter, too

I wish.  Oh, how I wish.

3. I wish I would have known was National Guacamole Day.  Whoops.

I would have made some Cheater’s Guacamole

…but I don’t have any avos on hand

Wish I did

4. I wish for a return of some 1950’s good old-fashioned niceness.

More smiling

Opening the door for someone

Just being neighborly.  Where I grew up in Minnesota it was not uncommon to walk next door to the neighbor’s house to borrow a cup of sugar or an egg if you ran out.  I cannot imagine that now or where I live, but it’s fun to wish for.

Compliment someone on her outfit, her recipe, her haircut, whatever it is, I wish for greater kindness.

And I wish that I never stop growing and learning lessons.

5. I wish that I was on Bravo Top Chef Just Desserts and I could have created a Willy Wonka Dreamland!


I wish I could walk into a room filled with edible desserts, candy, cookies, chocolate, cakes, lollipops, where eveyrhing is sweet.  And ebible.


How whimsical.  And fabulous.  And delicious!

But since the prospects of walking into a Willy Wonka dreamland are pretty much non-existent, I’ll have to settle for a homemade Peanut Butter Cup (Vegan, GF, No Bake)

or a

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & Marshmallow Stuffed Rice Krispie Bars (No Bake, with easy Vegan/GF adaptations)


1. What’s on your Weekend Wish List?

2. Are you watching Top Chef Just Desserts?  Or what would you like to put into your edible fantasy-land?

I have never gotten into the Top Chef series until just this one and I am loving it!   What was I waiting for?!

And what a fantasy-land it would be with edible desserts, candy, cookies, chocolate, cakes, lollipops, pies, brownies, where everything is sweet.  And ebible.

It sounds like my little version of heaven. 

When I was growing up I loved reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

Have a great weekend!

  1. I am OBSESSED with top chef. Every wednesday night, feet up on the couch, switch the TV to bravo, and usually have ice cream or cookie or some kind of dessert to match the mood!

  2. I hear ya on being wiped from a busy week! Great list, I have so much I want to get to also.

    1. Grocery shopping which I still may not have time for! Playing in the kitchen, running, and gardening.
    2. Nope, I’d love to check out an episode though – not enough hours in the day!

  3. I have never seen Top Chef before, and probably won’t watch the Desserts one either.
