Mr.CBB’s Saturday Weekend Review
It’s Saturday and that means working late and sleeping in for me. The best part of waking up this morning was that last night I made Walnut and White Cheddar Biscuits a recipe from my mate Aunt B and they turned out amazing. The goal was to use them with my homemade Pulled Pork that I put in the crockpot this morning. Yep, the house smells.. well. porky! I couldn’t take it any longer so I had to test a biscuit when I woke up this afternoon so I fried a couple eggs with a huge slice of ham and this is what it looked like…..
So keep an eye out in the upcoming weeks for my homemade pulled pork recipe on the blog tucked in between the cushions of this lovely biscuit! Ok now that we have the food out-of-the-way this week I did alot of Christmas baking as you know….
I also went down to the Ministry of Transportation to pick up a $15 temporary sticker for our winter vehicle. On the way there some donut decides to run a red light and do a right hand turn as I’m going 80 up a highway (brilliant) hand on horn and Mrs. CBB could practically touch the car if she opened her window. Didn’t have a minute to live I guess. No accident thank goodness but if there was someone in my left lane things would not have had a happy ending I can assure you. (Anyhow…. while at the Ministry) Upon asking if there was a cheaper way to do this to eliminate the cost of the temp sticker as we had to get an E-test first then come back and get the actual sticker. She tells us, of course. Did you know that your E-test lasts for one year? Nope, I had no idea. We didn’t have all of this in the UK so it’s all new to me. Now I know that I can get the E-test done before I park my vehicles that way I won’t have to waste $15 on a Temporary sticker (money grab ) just to drive the bloody thing to the garage to get an E-test (money grab) and back to the Ministry to get a sticker. Everyone wants money…. and it’s only bound to get worse.
