Short, Sweet and Silly (Hey, kinda like Sherri!)

Last night I checked in on my friend Stacey. She writes a blog about her struggles with infertility, and even though that's not a topic I'm personally familiar with, that's not all she writes about. Plus, she's just a really cool gal and I dig her. Anyway, her latest post talked about the fact that she has a) already finished decorating for Christmas, and b) she and her husband are in the midst of a kitchen remodel. (Considering that my Christmas tree is still in the attic and I have yard art strewn about my front lawn like a bad scene out of some "B" movie Christmas horror flick, that just kinda makes my head swim!) She's very organized and neat. Sort of like me only completely different. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah -- she also mentioned that she and her husband eat lunch together every day. They're so sweet on each other it literally makes my molars ache. Yesterday, her DH brought home some chicken pot pie for lunch. (Which, BTW Helen - do you have any CPP recipes? Cause I love me some chicken pot pie!) Her hubby left a sweet comment to her with a follow up that had a link to this video:

And because I have been singing this little ditty for roughly the past 4 hours, I just wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!


Beth said...

Haha. I love Stacey's blog and her relationship with "Chuck,""Hucklebuck," or whoever he REALLY is. Like you said... "Sort of like me but completely different."

She posted that comment about Jim Gaffigan's "Hot Pocket" bit awhile back and I've been singing that for about a month. Now this! Nooooo!

Hurrah! No preschool today- it's canceled due to ice! I can stay in my jammies!

wv: stseyboa. Does Stacey have a boa constrictor??

Helen said...

Katdish: I moved my Chicken Pot Pie recipe to my cooking blog. Just for you.
Beth: Do your jammies follow the dress code? Are they baggie and fuzzy? We have our standards in this club (or lack thereof). I'm the secretary, so I have to keep on these things. Or is that the job for the seargent at arms? Who is our seargent at arms? How about Annie?

sherri said...

Thanks for the headline--kinda' like seein' my name in lights!

I'll have to check out this blog site.

She also sounds just like me! But the polar opposite!

I'm sure Helen's recipe is great, but I'll also direct you to another I had come across a few days ago.
Mud and Coffee, (she's on my blog roll), did a post the other day entitled, "I am June CLeaver" where she made a CPP and had photos of her finished product and says received rave revues from the fam.
She's NOT a cook and was impressed with the ease of prep. and delicious flavor! Plus, she's has a great site!

Thanks for the song. Now I'll be singing THAT all day while filling out paperwork!

My wife's coworkers used to be jealous and make fun of her because I made breakfast for us each morning. We don't get to do that much anymore as my work situation has changed, but we enjoyed making others' molars ache while it lasted.

katdish said...

Awwww, Matt! How sweet is that?!The image of you making breakfast for your sweet wife has now replaced the previous, less seemly one. (Please tell me you were fully dressed or at the very least were rockin' some fuzzy pajamas.)

"Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot piiiiiiiiie!"

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

NOW I'm in the mood for, um, oh nevermind, I forgot.

Anyway, not to brag or anything (okay, I really am bragging), I eat lunch every day with my hubby too. And HE usually makes it.

Have I mentioned that I'm having a hard time losing the THIRTY pounds I gained when we got married?

Oh! Can I join the jammy club? Even if mine are fuzzy but not baggy anymore? (See above.)

WV: gnort
a combination of "gag" and "snort" - what you do when you hear or read a really funny AND gross story.

Annie K said...

Helen, I'm mostly up in arms, but I'm bossy enough to be a seargant.

Steph, my husband complains about his 30lb weight gain since we've gotten married. I've offered to stop cooking and he can go back to cereal for dinner...

Designated hitter?

Beth said...


Of COURSE they are baggy and fuzzy. Fuzzy robe, baggy jammie pants. It's my uniform.

Stacey said...

Thanks katdish for the shout out on your blog! Hucklebuck is GREAT but he gets in "trouble" at home for putting ridiculous dinner-related songs in my head (like Chicken Pot Pie or Adam Sandler's Sloppy Joe song). :)

By the way, I do have a great recipe for chicken pot pie that I'll e-mail you sometime. Those particular ones yesterday came from KFC yesterday - go try one! They're yummy. (KFC is not paying me to say that I swear.)

Sorry for making you all want chicken pot pie!

katdish said...

Laz -

Sheesh! "DH" as in "dear husband".

Stacey - Ooohhh! Gotta go to youtube! I LOVE sloppy joes!

Mare said...

Chicken pot pie? I'll stick with the okra soup, even if it causes maria.

The song was fun though!

Beth said...

Sloppy Joe, slop-a-sloppy Joe, Sloppy Joe, slop-a-sloppy Joe

Hoagies and grinders, hoagies and grinders


Ok, now Hucklebuck is really in trouble. I'm hungry. Time for lunch.

Stacey said...

I love coming here for silly stuff (and katdish, I'm beginning to think you might need a Youtube intervention!) but allow me to be serious for just a moment.

I just want to say thanks to you and to Beth, who also checks out my blog, for the support. Thanks ladies for getting involved and showing us the love of Christ. I know you don't have to read the blog and comment but you do it anyway and it means a lot. I love being part of the SCL community with you guys! I got into blogging to give and receive support for something awful but I've gained so much more.

Ok. Resume silliness.

Steph at The Red Clay Diaries said...

Okay, I have somehow missed the Adam Sandler song. I'll have to visit youtube too.

Annie K, just substitute yourself for my husband and me for your husband, and we had the exact same conversation. (Only I preferred making myself sandwiches for dinner.)

Mare, I know malaria is not a joking matter, but ... I'm gonna say something silly anyway. When I read how YOU wrote it ("maria"), all I could think of was, "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?"

And if chicken soup actually caused "maria", I think I'd be happy. I always did like Julie Andrews.

For all who now have Sound of Music songs in your heads...

You're welcome.

WV: operrid
What you want to do to your husband when he puts a dumb song in your head.
"Honey, if you sing, "The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Popcorn" ONE MORE TIME, I swear I'm gonna operrid myself of you once and for all!!!!"

Stacey said...

Here's the link to the Sloppy Joe (Lunch Lady) song. I didn't find the video - you probably have to get that through SNL - but you can listen here:

Funny, he mentions chicken pot pie at the beginning! :)
You have to listen for a while before you get to the sloppy joe part. Enjoy!

katdish said...

Steph -

G-I-N-K-G-O B-I-L-O-B-A!

Stacey -

That settles it! I'm going to Kroger and buying fixins' for sloppy joes! Or maybe I'll just get some hoooot pockets!

Yeah, you're probably right. The first step is admitting you have a problem...

Jeff said...

That is perhaps the greatest sound bite in the history of history.

It's at least in the top 5.

C3 now has an official pot-luck dinner theme song.

W.V.- cobless: The final state of Jolly Green Giant Niblets.
"Oh good, Niblets. I won't eat corn unless it's cobless."

Beth said...

Yay! Thanks, Stacey!

Jeff... we had carry-in dinners after church each week for awhile and the night we had sloppy joes my husband and I had to restrain ourselves from doing this song on stage...are you sure HealingPointe and C3 can't be co-church plants somehow??

I nominate this song as the official theme song for the Katdish Jammie Club!

Helen said...

Okay, it is official. You ladies are a bad influence on me. My husband just walked in, asked what's for dinner, so I sang the Chicken Pot Pie song. Apparently that is weird even for me, because he is still looking at me kind of funny. Praise God, I rarely make sloppy joes (although, wouldn't you know, I have a pretty good crock pot recipe for it). If I sang the Sloppy Joes song for him this week, he'd probaby register me in Bedlam (that is British for Bethlehem) Hospital.

katdish said...


Helen actually has a head! Not so much Heat Miser -- more like Velma from Scooby Doo. (And I mean that in a good way -- I always liked Velma better than that dingbat Dafney.) Also, Freddie was my first crush.

The Hogans were over tonight. So here's their contribution:

Tamara said she also immediately thought of "How do solve a problem like Maria?" (she's into musicals)

Jeff thought of "How do you solve a problem like Diahh Maria".

Yeah, he's my pastor. We're so proud.
