Is it DORF or DWARF!

So Sarah is talking to Casey and she said I think you should have been a DORF.....We're all like it's DWARF! Sarah said - THAT'S what I said! To which Martin said - THERE'S a "W" in there!

Use the RIGHT PAN!

Sooooo, my niece Sarah Rebecca Sunkel bought some Cheese Ravioli at Sam's today. Then she goes to Martin's to get 4-Cheese Sauce to put on top of it along with some shredded Cheddar Cheese.

THEN, she gets some NY Garlic Breadsticks to have with them. The rest of us enjoyed BBQ Pork Chops and a Baked Potato the size of Texas.

Does she use one of my many cookie sheets for the Breadsticks?

NOOOOOO! SHE uses the bottom of my Broiling Pan!

Remember, she IS college educated! Yet, continues to use the wrong knives and the wrong pans on the wrong sized eye on the stove!

I've told her husband to make sure they have good fire insurance when they get their own house!

Is it Baked Chicken or Water with Chicken Pieces in it?

I've been arguing this with my Niece Sarah Rebecca Sunkel for over 1 year now about the amount of water to use when using the Bag-N-Season.  I submit the following proof:

Now, you can all read both sides and NO WHERE will you see that it tells you to ADD WATER!  Yet, Sarah continues to add about 1/2 gallon of water to the bag, thereby making Water with Chicken Pieces instead of Baked Chicken with a nice Red Glaze on it.

THEN, she takes her piece of Chicken and Massacres it in Ketchup and whatever else she can find making it look like warmed up roadkill.

You can draw your own conclusions!

I want the SKINNY Hot Dogs

So we're going to cook burgers and hot dogs this evening. Now, in a NORMAL household that's no problem. But when Sarah Rebecca Sunkel is in it, you have to buy NATHAN'S ALL BEEF HOT DOGS. But!!!! You must get the SKINNY ones because they are not as fat! I submit EVIDENCE to the contrary. Below is the SKINNY Hot Dogs as they are called by Sarah....

Pictured above is HER SKINNY Hot Dogs.  Note the Nutrition Info.

These are the Regular FAT Hot Dogs as she calls them.  Again, Note the Nutrition Info.

Through the years, she has gone from Hebrew National ALL BEEF Hot Dogs to BALLPARK all BEEF Hot Dogs to Nathan's ALL BEEF Hot Dogs.  

Now, here's the kicker!  Sarah says she doesn't eat RED MEAT!  You can draw your own conclusion.

You can't make this stuff up!

This morning we go to Waffle House for Breakfast.

I ordered my usual 2 Eggs, scrambled, Hash Browns Covered and Chunked, Bacon well done and white toast.

Now, My Niece Sarah Rebecca Sunkel​ used to work at Waffle House and she's looking at me with a puzzled look on her face after I placed my order. We showed her on the Menu what Covered and Chunked meant.

Now, here's the good part!

Sarah orders the Cheese and Eggs Breakfast and then tells the Waitress that she doesn't want cheese in her eggs!  WHAT!?!?

The Waitress then points to the menu and says, then you want the 2 Egg Breakfast which is cheaper.

This one ranks right up there with the time she was at IHOP and told the Waitress there she didn't want all the pork, she just wanted Bacon!

Is it Buttermilk or Milk with Butter?

So my highly educated Niece, Sarah Rebecca Sunkel wants to make some Buttermilk.  Now, here's the definition of Buttermilk:

Traditional buttermilk[edit]

Originally, buttermilk referred to the liquid left over from churning butter from cultured or fermented cream. Traditionally, before cream could be skimmed from whole milk, the milk was left to sit for a period of time to allow the cream and milk to separate. During this time, naturally occurring lactic acid-producing bacteria in the milk fermented it. This facilitates the butter churning process, since fat from cream with a lower pH coalesces more readily than that of fresh cream. The acidic environment also helps prevent potentially harmful microorganisms from growing, increasing shelf-life.[3] However, in establishments that used cream separators, the cream was hardly acidic at all.
On the Indian subcontinent, the term "buttermilk" refers to the liquid left over after extracting butter from churned yogurt. Today, this is called traditional buttermilk. Traditional buttermilk is still common in many Nepalese, Indian and Pakistani households but rarely found in western countries.[2] In Southern India and most areas of the PunjabSaurashtra (Gujarat), buttermilk with added water, sugar or salt, asafoetida, and curry leaves is a must-have in daily food while also given at stalls in festival times.

2.  Melt the sticks in a Microwave
3.  Add the melted butter to some 2% Milk
4.  Realize it isn't working and pour the mixture down the drain HOPING your Uncle Josh didn't find out about it.

Well, I found out about it!

A Christian saying the Lord's Prayer

Rather cleverly done.
 This is in two parts,
the prayer (in blue type) and
GOD (in red type)
in response.
It is very, very good.
Our Father Who Art In Heaven.
Don't interrupt me. I'm praying.
But -- you called ME!
Called you? No, I didn't call you. I'm praying.
Our Father who art in Heaven.
There -- you did it again!
Did what?
Called ME.
You said,
"Our Father who art in Heaven"
Well, here I am.
What's on your mind?
But I didn't mean anything by it. I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day.
I always say the Lord's Prayer.
It makes me feel good, kind of like fulfilling a duty.
Well, all right.
Go on.
Okay, Hallowed be thy name . .
Hold it right there.
What do you mean by that?

By what?
By "Hallowed be thy name"?
It means, it means . . good grief,I don't know what it means.
How in the world should I know?
It's just a part of the prayer. By the way, what does it mean?
It means honored, holy, wonderful.
Hey, that makes sense.
I never thought about what 'hallowed' meant before.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Do you really mean that?
Sure, why not?
What are you doing about it?
Doing? Why, nothing, I guess.
I just think it would be kind of neat if you got control, of everything down here like you have up there. We're kinda in a mess down here you know.
Yes, I know;
but, have I got control of you?
Well, I go to church.
That isn't what I asked you.
What about your bad temper?
You've really got a problem there, you know.
And then there's the way you spend your money --
all on yourself.
And what about the kind of books you read?
Now hold on just a minute! Stop picking on me!
I'm just as good as some of the rest of those people at church!
Excuse ME.
I thought you were praying for my will to be done.
If that is to happen, it will have to start with the ones
who are praying for it.
Like you -- for example.
Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups.
Now that you mention  it, I could probably name some others.
So could I.
I haven't thought about it very much until now,
but I really would like to cut out some of those things.
I would like to, you know, be really free.
Now we're getting somewhere.We'll work together -- You and ME.
I'm proud of You.
Look, Lord, if you don't mind, I need to finish up here.
This is taking a lot longer than it usually does.
Give us this day, our daily bread.
You need to cut out the bread. You're overweight as it is.
Hey, wait a minute! What is this?
Here I was doing my religious duty, and all of a sudden you break in and remind me of all my hang-ups.
Praying is a dangerous thing.
You just might get what you ask for.
Remember, you called ME -- and here I am.
It's too late to stop now.
Keep praying.  ( . pause . . )
Well, go on.
I'm scared to.
Scared? Of what?
I know what you'll say.
Try ME.
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
What about Ann?
See? I knew it! I knew you would bring her up!
Why, Lord, she's told lies about me, spread stories.
She never paid back the money she owes me.
I've sworn to get even with her!
But -- your prayer --
What about your prayer?
I didn't -- mean it.
Well, at least you're honest.
But, it's quite a load carrying around all that bitterness
and resentment isn't it?
Yes, but I'll feel better as soon as I get even with her.
Boy, have I got some plans for her. She'll wish she had never been born.
No, you won't feel any better.
You'll feel worse.
Revenge isn't sweet.
You know how unhappy you are --
Well, I can change that.
You can? How?
Forgive Ann.
Then, I'll forgive you;
And the hate and the sin,
will be Ann's problem -- not yours.
You will have settled the problem
as far as you are concerned.
Oh, you know, you're right. You always are.
And more than I want revenge, I want to be right with You . . (sigh). All right all right . . I forgive her.
There now!
How do you feel?
Hmmmm. Well, not bad. Not bad at all!
In fact, I feel pretty great!
You know, I don't think I'll go to bed uptight tonight.
I haven't been getting much rest, you know.
Yeah, I know.
But, you're not through with your prayer are you? Go on.
Oh, all right. And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Good! Good! I'll do that.
Just don't put yourself in a place
where you can be tempted.
What do you mean by that?
You know what I mean.
Yeah. I know.
Go ahead. Finish your prayer.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory  forever.
Do you know what would bring me glory --
What would really make me happy?
No, but I'd like to know.
I want to please you now.
I've really made a mess of things.
I want to truly follow you.
I can see now how great that would be.
So, tell me . . .
How do I make you happy?
YOU just did.
