The Drawing Showdown


As I tried to come up with a dinner idea tonight, I decided that I really need to get groceries. We literally have an empty cupboard, freezer, and fridge!

As a result, our meal was quite random!

I present to you gourmet nacho chips. Only the most sophisticated of chefs would approve!

Said gourmet nacho chips included nacho chips, salsa, and leftover Black Eyed Pea Soup. It was a dinner fit for a king and queen.

Dessert was requested by Eric. He thought it would be a good idea to coat almonds in chocolate like we did with the raisins.

I agreed.

However we both concluded that there was not enough chocolate on them…

So we added a double layer.

It was improved, but sort of a bust. The raisins were a gazillion times better. We will be sticking to the chocolate-covered raisins!

We still managed to eat a few…

Then we did what all normal married couples do.

Drawing Showdown.

How did this drawing show down begin, you ask?

Well, Eric said he was better at drawing than me (oh no he didn’t!) so I challenged him to a drawing showdown.

It was ON.

I picked a picture of myself at 3.5 years old. As you can see, my love for stuffed bears and the colour pink started early. [I do not thank my mother for my bowl shaped haircut though!]

I set the Kitchenaid timer for 5 minutes and we drew our little hearts out…

It was a moment that will forever go down in our family history.

We giggled, we cursed, and we stuck our tongue out of our mouth just a little bit as we drew.

We focused.

We popped a few brain cells.

Zooming in…

This is what you call Epic.

And now we will do a little vote- Can you guess which one is MY drawing and which one is Eric’s drawing? :whistle: AND if you so dare, say which one you think is better!!! :lol:

I know, I know, it is like trying to pick between a Picasso and a van Gogh!

Hmmm. I think maybe Yours is the bottom and Eric’s is the top.


Angie May 19, 2010

I think Eric’s is the top and yours is the bottom. The bottom one is *slightly* better. You two are craaazy! :p


Holly May 19, 2010

I love the pictures, but I am still focused on the chocolate covered almonds. Do you cook more with dark chocolate or milk chocolate?


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 19, 2010

dark (I dont eat dairy so milk is out unless they have almond milk chocolate? lol)…organic dark is much better than non-organic dark I have discovered.


Kristina ( spabettie! ) May 19, 2010

Mmm, almond milk chocolate! I think you’re on to something~!

I’m going with yours is the first picture (the one that drew the GOOSE), and Eric’s is the second…

cute!! and a fun idea :)


Sophie @ yumventures May 19, 2010

Jill@MySoCalledHealthLife May 19, 2010

theemptynutjar May 19, 2010

Ameena May 19, 2010

I think Eric’s is the first one and yours is the second? How cute are you two?


erikA May 19, 2010

I think yours is the top and eric’s is the bottom and Angela please go grocery shopping that was a non-dinner hahah I would have called for take out or raided your supply of glo bars hahah -!


Heather May 19, 2010 i almost fell out of my chair laughing! you guys are hilarious…i’m thinking yours is #1 and his is #2?


Diana @ frontyardfoodie May 19, 2010

I’d say yours is on top and his is on bottom……..Okay, going on a limb here but I think the bottom one shows slightly more careful artistic skills. Don’t be mad! The top one is cute too!


Carly @ The Road To Health May 19, 2010

I think the one on the bottom is better! :)


Leah @ L4L May 19, 2010

Yours is on top. And it’s the better one.


Sue May 19, 2010

I think yours is the top one and Eric’s is the bottom one.


Allison @ Food For Healing May 19, 2010

my guess is #1 Eric and #2 yours.

you guys are goofy!


Tina May 19, 2010

I would say the bottom drawing is better. But it kind of creeps me out. It reminds me of the clown from the Saw movies. LOL

I love making healthier versions of favorite foods. Those nachos look delicious.


Lindsay @ Summit Sandwiches May 19, 2010

My vote goes to the top one. The bottom one has some nice shading on it, but the top one actually looks more like the picture. :) I think yours is the top one and Eric’s is the bottom….

Your random dinner actually looks really good. I find that some of my best dinner creations have been the result of not having enough groceries in the house. It forces you to dig real deep into the pantry and freezer, and get creative with weird ingredient mixtures. :) Constraints can bring out the best in you sometimes!


Amber K May 19, 2010

That’s a bummer that the almonds didn’t turn out, but the chocolate covered raisins continue to sound so delicious!


Judy May 19, 2010

How fun! I think that the top drawing was done by you Angela and the bottom by Eric. They are both really good for five minutes of drawing.


Jenny May 19, 2010

So that’s what marriage is like?!;)


Wei-Wei May 19, 2010

Hahahaha that is HILARIOUS! :D I think the second one is yours. The smile is bigger, too :)

Such a cute picture! And I LIKE your bowl cut. :D



Heather May 19, 2010

Hmmm… this is a tough one.
I think that the first one is Eric’s and the second one is yours. And if I am correct, then I hate to say it, but I think the first one is sliiiightly better (emphasis on the word slightly :P haha). This is hilarious by the way.


Kelly Michelle May 19, 2010

I vote for the top one, although I do like the bear in the second.


Nicole Y. May 19, 2010

OH MY GOSH!! Those are hilarious!! I think the top is yours and bottom is Eric’s. The top one CRACKS ME UP!! The face is priceless and slightly terrifying!! :)


Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday May 19, 2010

Those drawings are equally terrible if it makes you feel any better.


Lauren M. May 19, 2010

I’m scared of both of the pictures.


Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty May 19, 2010

hahah how fun!!

I vote the top one as yours… 2nd one Eric!!

I like the 1st one best, way more detail ;)


Lisa May 19, 2010

haha I am glad to know that Mr BBB and I aren’t the only ones that find ourselves having ‘comptetitions’ like these!!! :) Love iT!


Danielle (Coffee Run) May 19, 2010

I’m going to say your is the top! lol I hope I do these things when I’m married


Leah May 19, 2010

I LOVE that you two did this. I agree with Danielle, I hope I do things like this when Im married.
I think the top one is yours, and the bottom one is Eric’s. I like the top one best.


Kris May 19, 2010

LOL…I LOVE THIS!!! Can’t stop laughing!!!

I hope to God that you drew the first picture cause the bottom one is creepy (Sorry, Eric…LOL!!!)


Lynna May 19, 2010

hahah! this is so funny! I would guess that Eric’s is the top and yours is the bottom but it’s a tough call. I’m going to have to say the top one is the better one though.


Lizz @ leadingthegoodlife May 19, 2010

This is hard! I would guess Eric’s is on top, and yours is on bottom. But that’s hard for me to say because I think the top one is (a little) better! :)

How fun!!!


Camille May 19, 2010

Hahaha, oh my gosh, you guys are hilarious!
This just made my evening :)


Jolene ( May 20, 2010

I think yours is the first one!!


Shalyn May 20, 2010
