Washington is the greatest state. Ever.

Is there anything better than eating a fresh homemade peach pie, made with fresh Washington Alberta peaches bought at a local produce stand?

Yes, there is.

It is better to eat said peach pie heated with this on top.

At long last!

It's finally over. I didn't think it would happen earlier this week, but I have finally achieved my first fantasy sports championship. Ok, yes there is still one day left, but the score right now is 290 - 201, and it will be a cold day in Arizona before someone outscores me by 90 points in a single day. 

My hat is off to you, Burnett Bombers. I had not beat you head to head before, you had a better overall record, a better division record, more points scored over the whole season, and a better name than me. Unfortunately in week 25 I managed to outscore you. Sorry about that.

So I'm not sure what to do with all my newfound fame now. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before paparazzi start knocking down my door. Oh well, as long as they photograph my good side (the side where you can't see my receding hair line)

I think I'll celebrate by... publishing this post!

It all comes down to this

This is it, my wife's favorite time of the year. The end of the fantasy baseball season. It's the final championship game, and right now I'm leading by 20 points. I've never beat this team (the Burnett Bombers) head to head before, but we're pretty evenly matched. It's sad to see the season end, but all that really means is IT'S FANTASY FOOTBALL TIME!!!!!!

Millions of peaches, peaches for me. Millions of peaches, peaches for $0.99 per pound.

Did I forget to mention the other reason this is the most wonderful time of the year?

What the best way to spend the day before football sunday? Eating peaches. One for the canner, one for me, one for the canner, one for me...

My daughter is very excited to have 50 pounds of peaches on the counter.

C'est le meillure que jamais

It's the best that was never... that's the literal translation of the french phrase I found on some food product on our recent trip to Victoria.

I believe this to be the most perfect candy cane cookie ever made. My wife disagrees. That may possibly be because I used that as my primary case for why she should be the one to shape the rest of the cookies using the dough I had made.

Now, you may be distracted by asking yourself, why are they baking candy cane cookies in September?

But the way I see it, there are two possible and more important questions you should be asking. First, if you know me (and why would you read this blog if you didn't?) you should ask yourself why you're wondering why I would bake candy cane cookies in September. Has any one thing I've done in the past led you to believe that I'm normal?

Or, if you don't know me, probably because you're one of those random hits I get from Google searches like "penguins with neckties that look like Geoffrey Chaucer" or "crunchy krab cakes", then you should be asking, why does this guy call himself The Krunchy Krab, and why am I still reading this?

Either way, someone has to eat this perfect cookie, and if no one else can bring themselves to do it, I suppose I'll just have to take one for the team.

What is "Recipe the name" mean?

My daughter likes to listen to the Psalty Kids' Praise tapes in the car, hand-me-downs from my childhood. There's one song she particularly likes, that has a line in the chorus - "Blessed be the name, Blessed be the name, Blessed be the name of the Lord our God!"

She's still learning how to pronounce most words, and so she asks us now what things mean. So the other day she asked us, "What is 'Recipe the name' mean?" We finally figured out she meant "Blessed be the name" and was just pronouncing it wrong, which produced a good laugh. But when we told her it was "Blessed" she just said, no, it was Recipe. So now, she sings "Recipe the name, Recipe the name, Recipe the name of the Lord our God!" at the top of her lungs. Additionally, she attempts to make vibrato by raising her head and shaking it back and forth with her eyes closed and her mouth wide open while singing.

Sometime I'll catch it on video and post it here.
