” It’s Friday night, and the mood is right…Gonna have some fun, show you how it’s done, TGIF!”

I used to watch TGIF shows every Friday – anyone else? I’m trying to remember the lineup. I remember Family Matters:


Followed by Boy Meets World:


Followed by Step by Step:


And finally Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper


*edit: I remember the lineup changing frequently, with shows including Perfect Strangers, Full House and Dinosaurs (I think!)*

Oh this brings me back. Once Sabrina the Teenage Witch started, TGIF went downhill. What was your favorite show as a kid/teenager?

This morning I thought I’d try something different. I didn’t have a smoothie or a green monster this morning. WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO? I decided to try OIAJ. I prepared some oatmeal, poured it in the basically empty PB jar and added ½ sliced banana and a sprinkle of walnuts.

It was delicious. I got a nice scrape of PB in every bite. Thank you Kath!

I’ve got an egg salad sandwich for lunch today, thanks to this little guy:

He did great! The egg and the potato peeler from yesterday are both from HomeGoods – they have all sorts of fun, cheap kitchen stuff.

And, finally, to keep my promise from yesterday:

MAYOR McCHEESE! He is so distinguished and fancy.

Friday plans:
Dinner: ???
Keep reading The Lovely Bones (started it last night and am loving it so far – the author is wonderful)

Question of the day: What was your favorite TGIF show?
Have a great day,

    Wasn’t Full House one of them??

    It seems like people used to ALWAYS watch TGIF and now shows are sent to Friday night to die.

    Hahahahahahaha. So many good TGIF shows. Perfect Strangers, Just the Ten of Us, and I do think Full House was part of it. I lived for those shows when I was a kid.

    “Who’s the Boss” was my ultimate fave!
    You sure do have some cute kitchen “helpers!” Love it!
    Hope you find a good recipe for tonight’s dinner. I’m sure you will! I’m making crunchy chicken and roasted red taters. And I just finished a Ginger Snap Larabar. OH. YUM.

    Oh! And I’m related to the guy who played Zach on SBTB. He’s my third cousin or something. Funny, eh?!

    I don’t even remember Friday night tv, I think because of the high school football games. Thursday night was the best though. I think that was The Cosby Show, Family Ties…I don’t remember much else. Love the class! That brings back memories!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! It led me back to yours and I love it!

    Full House! I was a die hard fan. I could totally identify with DJ. Many times my cousins and I would have slumber parties at my gram’s house and she’s put a big blanket on the floor so we could have a picnic during TGIF. Fun times!

    Hey, don’t go hatin’ on Sabrina. I actually liked that show. Hah! 😀

  14. Lindsay Says:
