So What You're Saying is You Don't Love the Recipes, Notsomuch?

O the neurosis! It doth plague me of a Monday.

I post the recipes, and the stats, they sputter and droop. I mean, an important handful of you like the recipes (thank you for your lovely comments!), but most of y'all hie yourselves hither when I put one up.

Come on back. I'll talk about shoes. And hair.

Or POOP! Everyone seems to love a good poop post! Poop-story days are always glorious days in the Land of Blogstats.

I don't have any recipes that include shoes, hair or poop though. You would never think that NOT having a recipe that features shoes, hair or poop as an ingredient would be to a woman's detriment, would you?

But there you have it.

  1. I like the recipes too! There just isn't so much to comment on about a recipe. Love your blog by the way!!!! Oh, and did I miss the post about your jeans???

  2. Oh please! Please keep the recipes! I, for one, am totally bookmarking them for future reference.

    If you feel moved to explore other topics, even POOP, well I guess that's okay, too. I have enough poop to deal with in real life (both figuratively and literally) that I always enjoy talking about anything else . . . :)

    (But I do have to say your Public Enemy Number Two post is an all-time fave of mine!)

  4. I love anything you write about - including recipes. Of course a good poop story brings out those morbid curiosity seekers!

  5. You know I love everything you have to say (or write). I am just NOT a cook so I don't have much to say. Plus I've been crazy busy and reading a lot more than I've been commenting lately. Sorry! ♥

  6. I lurve your recipes! But they do nothing for my low fat diet.
    Write girl, write. Whatever it is about! So consider this your ego stroke for the day.

  7. Recipes are good but then anything you say is interesting and usually amusing so keep writing recipes and all

  8. Oh please don't take it personal. You can make anything fun. I am behind on my blog reading due to trying to finish this blasted Defensive Driving course (that I swore I would not mention again).

  9. I DO like the recipes. I just find food hard to comment on - and adding me being crazy-busy to that, I guess I just haven't been able to comment as much as I should.
    But sure, bring on the poop.

  11. I LOVE the recipes too (though I am not much of a "red beans and rice" girl)

    Keep 'em comin' girl! But don't talk about poop in the same post as the recipe.

    Poopies and recipes don't mix well ;0)

    Blessings,
    Karla

  12. My blogstats always jump when I say something controversial, or when someone I know is in a life-or-death situation. It's human nature. HOWEVER, you make EVERYTHING interesting, which is what keeps me coming back. I have been a bit behind on my blogreading, due to the fact that I am so busy couponing these days!

  13. I post recipes on Sunday because it's so easy and I need a day off once a week--plus it seems there are a few who like them too. They're also good for Google. Don't know if that helps at all, I don't really have a point :)

  14. Don't your stats always plummet on the weekends? I rarely have time to read blogs on the weekend--the usual schedule has usually gone south in a handbasket, if you KWIM...

  16. Occassonally when one of the kids asks what we are having for dinner, I reply with "poop in a can". I think that kinda combines poop talk and recipes

  17. so, riddle me this. where be the brunswick stew recipe (i just had to lug 3 CANS of it back from NC for a friend here), and, for the slowcooker version of the red beans and rice, do i add EVERYTHING at once, or do i cook the celery/onion/whatever for 5 minutes, and THEN add it? and also, how much water, since i won't be around to monitor it during the day and add it as needed?

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL!! Don't watch your stats so closely, girl. You're doing great.

  19. OH YAY! Somebody DOES want the Brunswick Stew Recipe. I'll post it later today with three chili recipes AND a non-traditional pumpkin dessert from my sister, just in time for T'giving.

    To make RB&R in your slow-cooker, use 1 1/2 quarts of water. Soak beans overnight, then drain and rinse. Add all the ingreds to the pot (except the rice) at the same time with the water, cook on HIGH, covered for 2 hours, then reduce the heat to low for 10-12 hours. (I know, that's like forever!)

  23. Oh, we like the recipes, we like them, I say! I made Red Beans and Rice for the very first time in my life this year after going to a Southern style restaurant that is new to my town. And we love Beans and Rice, it is what my youngest asks for ALL THE TIME!! So, keep the recipes coming, we love trying new things!
