Happy Sunday afternoon! We have a cousin over helping Mr. Handsome with some exterior work on our house. Little Buddy is occupied playing with his 10-year-old second cousin, and Littlest Buddy is down for a nap, so I have a few minutes of quiet. I’m drinking iced coffee with heavy cream and feeling very relaxed, so I thought it would be a good time to answer some questions:
What are your go-to meals to make for your family?
Mr. Handsome’s go-to is burgers. Whenever I’m struggling to think of something to make for dinner, Mr. Handsome says, “Just pull some ground beef out of the freezer, and I’ll make burgers.” We have opposite opinions on how burgers should be dressed. Mr. Handsome likes to taste the meat, and I like to put enough toppings on so I don’t taste the meat. I love sauces and condiments, and sometimes I’ll even add avocado or pineapple. My go-to meal to cook is fajitas (recipe is on my Recipes page). I try to keep cut peppers and raw chicken tenders in the freezer and tortillas on the counter so I can make fajitas on the fly without a trip to the store.
Can Mr. H tell us something about his two youngest sisters?
I just love Mr. Handsome’s little sisters! They were 9 and 11 years old when I met them, so it has been fun to watch them grow up and enter adulthood. They are both very mature, which I think is the result of having five older siblings. One has two years left of college (she attends nearby so we still see her a lot) and the other graduated college and got married (hence the photos of the cupcakes and wedding cake). She is about to start a job, and her husband is planning to get a master’s degree, so they will be busy.
Do you want more kids?
Yes! We both really want four, but more than that, we want God’s will for our life, whether that is more or less. My most recent pregnancy felt so much harder on my body than my first, so I am going to spend the next couple years working hard to get back in shape.
What are your favorite YouTube channels?
I don’t spend much time on YouTube, but every once in a while I watch a comedy clip from the Holderness Family. I can’t vouch for all their videos because I have only seen some, but I especially enjoy the ones about Costco and Hallmark. Mr. Handsome doesn’t find them very funny (although he laughed out loud to “Buying a House in 2022”), but I think they are a hoot. What do you think?
