Hi, it’s The Bug, and it’s time for some Friday Fun! And after having my tonsils out, I finally get to have some fun, like helping Mommy in the kitchen…

Bug and monster cereals

And going on rides…

But I still sucker them into letting me lay around and watch TV…

Bug Saturday morning cartoons

Eat ice cream…

Bug ice cream Point Pleasant

And drink smoothies…

But at least I can eat solid food, unlike this guy…

Look at him eyeing up my chicken corn chowder…

I think he’d rather chew on Doughboy than eat mushy bananas…

Too bad for him!

OK, Mommy’s turn…

Something I love and made this weekCrockpot Cheesestak Pulled Chicken from How Sweet It Is. Only I made it nothing like this, but Jessica’s recipe was totally my inspiration. I’ll be blogging it soon. (on my Slow Cooker Obsession Board)

Something I love and will probably never makeChocolate Vanilla Tuxedo Cake with Raspberry White Chocolate Buttercream from Pineapple & Coconut. OK, I would make this, but it will never turn out so perfectly gorgeous as Shanna’s (on my OMG Food Board)

Something I love and want to bake Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cake from Family Fresh Cooking – pumpkin, chocolate, and gluten free without eleventy billion flours and gums and stuff. I’m in! (on my Pumpkin Obsession Board)

Something I love and want to cook – Pistachio Crusted Salmon – The Bug loves salmon, I love nuts, The Hubby just loves food. Win Win Win. (on my Seafood Inspiration Board)

Something I love that one of my readers told me about Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Soup from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe – Thanks Sandra!! (from my Soup & Stew Inspiration Board)

Something I love and want someone to make for meGluten-Free Ombre Cake from Eat The Love – there are no words! (from my OMG Food Board)

Something I love and want to put my own spin onPumpkin Nutella Cheesecake Danish from Inside Bru Crew Life – but the only thing I want to change is to try to make them with some Pillsbury GLuten-Free Pie Crust Dough that I have (on my Nutella Obsession Board)
