Buds lament differences, or simply: Tricia not here to defend herself!

May 18, 2009 - Taste Buds
So, you know how we Buds are similar, as you’ve had over a week to read about it.

We are quite sure that you’re all now saying, “Surely they differ what ways?”

Well, you people are lucky we like you or we wouldn’t tell you that we do actually disagree on some things!

One of them is NOT the fact that Robert Conrad looks amazing in his little blue “James West” outfit. (We just had to slip this in because, shamefully, we left it off of the “how we are alike” blog. Our bad!) We both fully appreciate how good he looked (see photo) while outsmarting that termite Miguelito Loveless.

Now that THAT is out of the way we can move on to the differences.
We’ll get the food fights out of the way first:

- One of us hates chocolate and the other is normal.

- One of us hates hot dogs and the other is American.

- One of us hates eggs and cottage cheese more than anything else in the world.

- One of us won’t eat pudding.

- One of us hates strawberry pie and the other hates pumpkin pie.

Naturally, there are other differences besides the tasty ones that must be addressed. So, here are the non-food issues - starting with the obvious:

- One of us is married and one of us is not.

- One of us has 4 kids and the other only has 1.

- We look way different. (See photo.)

- One of us is in Germany right now and the other is stuck writing this blog.

- One of us has tattoos and the other is thankful that she didn’t ignore the foresight God gave her.

- One of us drives a stick and the other refuses to learn how.

- One of us has an adorable little dog and the other has 2 cats.

- One of us loves the BeeGee’s and the other one has good taste in music.

- One of us is over the hill and one of us is still under it.

And finally...

- One of us is going to get beat up when the other one gets back from Deutschland and reads this blog!

Well here’s a recipe we can both agree on:


1 16 ounce package spiral pasta

1 pound bacon, diced

2 medium onions, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced

2 14 ounce cans sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained

3 10 3/4 ounce cans condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in skilled cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towels. Drain reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. In the drippings, saute onions and garlic until tender. Drain pasta. Place a fourth of the pasta in two greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking dishes. Top each with a fourth of the sauerkraut and soup mixtures. Repeat layers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with remaining bacon. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until heated through. Yield: 16 servings.
