Yoghurt & Apology Cupcakes

We talk about our weeks over this tasty cocktail/dessert:

Double Chocolate Porter Bourbon Float
AKA Sex Panther Float

Adapted from The Rising Spoon

Makes 2 floats

  • Porter or stout beer(I used San Tan Brewery’s Sex Panther. Breckenridge’s Vanilla Porter, or Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout would be great also.)
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 oz whiskey or bourbon

Put two scoops of ice cream in each frosted mug. Pour half the porter in each glass, and drizzle a bit of bourbon over the top. Enjoy with a spoon and straw unless you want ice cream all over your face.

Apologycupcakes

This episode includes an unexpected visitor bearing cupcakes (you won’t believe who it is!). We virtually peek inside our closets and share our go-to pieces and accessories. Erica loves these chambray shirts and these skinny jeans. She gives her closet a grade a la Sherry from Young House Love to determine what stays and what goes. Kelsey desperately wants to rock a blazer and a statement necklace.

We’re also talking organization and productivity on this episode. How do you meal plan and grocery shop? Inquiring minds need to know. Erica has a specific plan of attack that’s working for her right now, and Kelsey’s winging it with some basic rules but is always on the hunt for the perfect system. She wrote about it here, here, and here on her blog. We’re also sharing all of our tricks for staying motivated and productive at work.  Banjo music is one of them.

Great reads and great finds always top our list of current obsessions. Erica talks about her Best of 2013 Nightstand Reviews. Kelsey is reading The Best Food Writing of 2013, The Creative Habit, and is obsessed with the British spelling of yogurt in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.

Kelsey’s current obsession is the super cute kids’ CD Here Come the ABC’s by They Might Be Giants, and Erica is watching unhealthy amounts of Dance Moms and Sister Wives.

We’d love to connect with you! Comment below and tell us about what you do to meal plan, stay productive, or ward off stray felines. Weigh in on sister wife fashion and whether it’s a yard, rummage, garage or tag sale.

  1. Did you ever find out what Saw Guy was making? And how were the cupcakes? I’m impressed that they are homemade, they look very professional.
    I’m loving the podcast, keep it up, girls! I especially love the book club shoutouts. ♥

  2. Haha, oh yeah! We forgot to say! He said it WAS a tile floor, Erica was right! So not sure what my sister saw him cutting although I do think he’s been doing a lot of gardening lately too…dying to peek over the fence again. The cupcakes were delicious! And we can’t decide if they are homemade or professional, could go either way. If they were homemade then we REALLY want to be friends with them 😉

  3. Really liked the suggestions for keeping productive and on track at work! Now that I’m off work, I take back my comment about also having shorter podcasts. I’m enjoying catching up 🙂

  4. Haha, ok noted! I’m so glad you like the suggestions, you’ll have to let us know what helps you stay productive, I love talking productivity.

  5. When Erica started talking about Sister Wives it was like she took the words right out of my mouth! It is my secret guilty pleasure that I have to watch when my husband is away! Have you been watching My Five Wives?! I don’t know what it is about those polygamists but I find them so fascinating.

  6. Ha! So glad Im not alone in this guilty pleasure.

    Okay, so I know this episode is not a recent one, but I am catching up on episodes I missed during the busy school semester…and I HAVE to chime in about Sister Wives because I am, no joke, laughing out loud in a public coffee shop. The deal with the tank top over a tighter yet more modest bottom layer…that is TEXTBOOK Mormon Culture! Kody and his family aren’t part of the mainstream LDS religion and talk about that openly, but that doesn’t matter…Mormon Culture is Mormon Culture. Besides mystery casserole dishes at church functions, that deadly shirt combo has to be my least favorite bit of Mormon Culture, because it’s like, not cute. At all. I had friends who in high school, I am NOT joking, wore those “Shade Shirts” (a little Mormon lingo for ya) under prom…PROM…dresses. YES I KNOW I AM DEAD!!! Please just know how much I appreciated that comment, I am still laughing!

  11. Erica, my husband and I fell into the sister wives trap quite some time ago and did the same thing. you can’t help but binge watch a show like that! we’ve actually been keeping an eye out for new episodes. no shame.
    Kels, we have stray cats poop in our yard all the time! the worst part is Watson eats it. I actually did some recon to see why they hang out so much on our street- turns out someone drives over- DRIVES, as in they don’t live on our street- and feeds them a giant pile of food a few times a week. we’ve been trying to figure out a cruelty-free solution, but for now we use scare tactics when we catch them on our lot. 🙂

  13. Haha, I would not have expected you and Brian as binging on Sister Wives, makes me laugh. Oooo, that is a stray cat problem indeed! Drew also had an affinity for cat poo, it was the worst!
