Rick & Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub by Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey

Even if you (like myself) hadn’t heard of the Rick and Bubba show before, you can still enjoy their southern wisdom and humor in this latest offering from them. This book offers a tongue-in-cheek diet plan, the “Hey, You Gotta Live” diet, with no fussy counting of calories, points, or fat grams. With all the diet plans that tell you what foods to avoid, let me just warn you that Rick and Bubba find very few reasons to say “no” to food, but what did you honestly expect from this pair dubbed “America‘s sexiest fat men”?

This book made me laugh. I enjoyed their coverage of topics ranging from Spam to casseroles to peanut butter to dressing.  Their style is humorous and easy to read. Although there aren’t many recipes in this book, the smattering of included recipes look fairly tasty and easy to fix. What’s not to love about recipes called Rick and Bubba‘s World-Famous “Goat Drop Cookies” or Peanut Butter Bars of Joy ? And I feel much better knowing that choosy sexy fat people choose Jif since that’s the brand I reach for as well (and I thought it was because I was a choosy mom!)

A superb pair of jeans-makes anybody show up good and that is specifically precise for "hip hop" jeans. Denims developed by hip hop designers may maybe be dressed up or down, and allow for extra natural and organic curves and have extra extend than jeans by conventional designers, so they flatter extra whole body types. ladies don't phone for to squeeze into them, which constricts blood vessels flow, and just helps make stated curves pop out elsewhere, a thing that isn't actually flattering.

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
