It’s been over a month since I’ve written a blog post. I’d like to say that I’ve been busy…
writing a book,
making a movie with George Clooney,
being on a cruise,
winning Publisher’s Clearing House.
But in reality I’ve been busy…
taking care of a sick kid,
ignoring the laundry,
madly cleaning for a random house showing,
going to church,
leading a Bible study,
having a fight with my husband,
watching episodes of Love it or List it.
SoooOOOooOOOoo, that’s some of the things I’ve been really doing. (Do you like how I put having a fight with my husband right after going to church and leading a Bible study? Just keeping it real, folks. But don’t worry, we made up.)
On top of all of that, I’ve really been lacking motivation to write anything lately. I have things I WANT to write about, but sitting down to the keyboard and rocking them out is a whole ‘nother thing. A thing I apparently haven’t felt like rocking.
Anywho! My aunt sent me a fun Lazy Mom Recipe that is perfect for the upcoming holidays. It’s a Texas favorite and comes from my sister-in-law. Ever heard of a pecan praline? This here’s the Lazy Mom microwave version.
Now don’t freak out! It calls for a LOT of brown sugar, but my sister-in-law says these are, and I quote, “the bomb!”
Lazy Mom Pecan Pralines
1 cup whipping cream
1 (1 lb.) box brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups pecan pieces
Put cream and sugar in a microwave safe bowl, stir and cook on high power for 6 minutes. Stir, then cook again on high for 7 more minutes. Add butter, then stir in nuts and whip mixture with a fork until it just thickens. Quickly drop by the spoonful onto parchment paper (work quickly, as it starts to set quickly once thickened). Cool and store in the fridge in an airtight container.
Hopefully, you’ll all rave so much about me writing a new blog post that includes a Lazy Mom Recipe, that I’ll be remotivated to write some more.
But… don’t hold your breath,
The Lazy Mom
