Dried What???

The other night I was watching Martha's Classic Thanksgiving and Hubby took a computer break, came in the room to sit and take a peek at what I was watching.  We were watching a segment where she was making a fruit and nut dressing.  She was adding the herbs when we thought she said "Next we'll add the dried gerbil."  We looked at each other.  "What did she just say?!!".  We did a quick replay to find that she said "chervil".  We laughed and laughed. 

Later when we were chatting in bed, hubby and I were talking about something totally non-related when he said "You know what?  You need to add some ...  ha ha ha ha.."  He just starts laughing.  Mind you, our littlest is still in a crib in our room until we can get a bunk bed in the girls' room.   

Anywho...  So he's laughing and I start laughing, not even knowing what he's laughing about.  You know how that goes, right?  So then he finally, after many tries, gets the entire sentence out.  "You need to add some dried gerbil to your turkey this year.  Ha ha ha ha..."  I had to bury my face in my pillow I was laughing so hard.  Then he said "But if you are out, a hamster would do... ha ha ha ha"  More laughter from me then I chime in with  "Or a ferret!"  Again more laughter.  Then he said "But you'd have too much.  Ha ha ha..."  Then I quipped "Oh just triple the recipe... ha ha ha ha..."  We were laughing so much that we were crying.  I started coughing and hubby had to use his inhaler because he started wheezing. 

I just thought ya'll would enjoy this little story.  Either that or you think we are totally weird so you will never read this blog again.  *wink*

No I LOVE those kind of moments. Speaking of which, Martha also calls herbs (think "h" silent) she calls them "herbs" and pronounces the 'H". My hubby thinks that is so pretentious. =0)

Carmen, love your post, I love those times together. You know you are getting old when you have to use your inhaler!

I love love love Martha but she says marinade as "mari-nod" and that is so pretentious too! I was watching that same martha dvd today, the thanksgiving one, so your story was so funny to me! my husband thinks its a bit bizarre that all my kids recognize martha stewart and know just who she is...even my two special homeschoolers. visit us at wonderland homeschool! said...

Hahahaha! That is so funny! I love those moments too. For some reason things are exponentially funny at night when you're supposed to be going to sleep!
