Google, pork chops & applesauce

I'm getting my post in just under the wire today. I don't know where the time has gone. One minute, I was making breakfast for my daughter, and the next I was digging through the freezer, trying to find something to defrost in 20 minutes for supper. The day just flew! For the most part, my day was spent working. In fact, I think that's about all I did.

This evening I watched my new favorite show, The Good Wife. I managed to put together a rough list for the next few weeks, to give myself some kind of plan for the holidays. I'm a great list maker. And very good at changing my lists or disregarding them altogether. But, it gives me a start.

Several comments were made in my last post about having "pork chops and applesauce" for dinner. It reminded folks of a Brady Bunch episode. I had to Google it, because it didn't ring a bell for me. Peter, in his Humphrey Bogart imitation, says . . . I'll have 'pork chops and applesauce.' So, if you're as curious as I am, here it is. (Look under Peter, towards the bottom of his list.) Just goes to show you that you can Google just about anything! And just goes to show you, how pathetic it is, that I would do so!

Today, I'm thankful for my microwave oven, and all the conveniences that make my life flow more smoothly. And Google. Because you never know what you're going to have to look up, or lie awake nights wondering about it.

Karen, I so remember that episode from the Brady Bunch. My 2 younger sisters went around the house saying "pork chops and applesauce" just the way Peter Brady did! My parents and I wanted to gag them they said it all the time-LOL!!!

I totally remember that episode and sometimes even imitate the statement. My kids think I am so weird!

I am loving The Good Wife - the only weekly show I watch without fail. Looks like I am in good company. :-)

I've been trying to comment for days but for some reason my computer hasn't allowed me too!
I was going to say the same thing about the pork chops and applesauce from the Brady Bunch! I loved that episode - in fact my brother still tries to impersonate it all the time!
