Pizza Hut

My son wanted Pizza Hut last night, so we went into one of the sit-down restaurants. The guy comes over and takes our order, then never brings us our drinks. I had to get up and go get the guy and remind him we wanted them. Then he kept coming over and asking if we wanted refills (big-time overkill). When we were ready to go, we asked him for two ToGo boxes for the pizzas. He brings two tiny boxes made for those single personal pan pizzas (the look on his face while he was trying to figure out how to fit two large pizzas in two tiny boxes… I will never forget that look). I was specific this time and asked for two large boxes to fit two large pizzas. He never showed up with them. I had to request them from another waitress, who kept apologizing profusely for the other guy. Apparently she knew he was an idiot. It wasn’t like they were busy. I think along with us there may be been two other families in there. That was the worst waiter I’ve ever had. No exaggeration.

If you ever go out to a sit down Pizza Hut and you get a waiter named Brian, run. Run and never look back. Or better yet, stay away from that nasty restaurant all together.

Homemade Blondies



Blondies from scratch, and they turned out delicious! Doug helped, and we used chocolate chips since we didn’t have any butterscotch chips.

Not my recipe… can’t recall where I snagged it.

Blondies Recipe

1/2 cup of butter, melted
1 cup of tightly packed dark brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/3 cup of butterscotch chips (chopped walnuts and chocolate chips are equally tasty)


1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly butter and flour an 8X8 pan. Whisk together the melted butter and sugar in a bowl.

2 Add the egg and vanilla extract and whisk.

3 Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt, mix it all together. Add the butterscotch chips or other mix-ins.

4 Pour into the pan and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool. Cut into squares and serve.
