The Adventures of Spork & Foon

My Hubby really is the best.

Last year he resurrected a family recipe for fruitcake. He made dozens of mini loaves and gave them away as gifts. The thing about fruitcake is you either like it or you don’t. It has a bad rap for some reason. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed it. But, people really, really seem to love this fruitcake.

This year he began gathering all of the things he would need to make them again. He surprised me though. He figured out how to tweak the recipe and make it vegan…completely vegan.

So last night, after the trial batch was completed baking and had cooled, we tasted it to see if it would be any good. It was actually moister and tastier. We were both excited. I told him, “Do you know how hard it is to find a vegan fruitcake around the holidays?!”

Maybe we’ve found a new profession: Spork and Foon Bakers. I sort of like it. IMG_2780

The Adventures Of Spork & Foon

Hubby decided to test the walkie-talkie feature on our smartphones last night. We were having dinner in a very noisy restaurant.

Hubby: (above the noise level, talking into this watch): Can you hear me?
Me: (looking across the table): Loud and clear!
Hubby: Shut up.


I try to be helpful.

Hubby: How was your day?
Me: Blah, Blah, Blah…I did the laundry…Blah, Blah, Blah…
Hubby: Did you do the laundry?
Me: I said I did the laundry.
Hubby: Wait. You expect me to listen AND pay attention?
