Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid.

Ladies, have you ever noticed that when you ask a man to get something for you it seems he can never seem to find it?  Whether it be milk from the refrigerator or  a stamp to mail a letter.

It’s called man eyes and they all seem to have the same problem.

You know how it is . . . you send him to get it and chances are pretty high that he won’t be able to find it.

I have theory on this phenomenon. 

This is what I believe happens.  You ask with a please and a thank you and all other manner of politeness.  Then suddenly, without inexplicably the man is struck blind . . . selectively blind . . . man eyes.

He can maneuver about without bumping into walls or falling over furniture but as he approaches his target his vision is suddenly impaired . . . its kind of like reverse tunnel vision. 

My experience has been that its just easier to go and get whatever it is I need for myself.

And that, girlfriends, is what it all boils down to.  it’s not that they can’t see . . . it’s that they won’t see. 

If they do it enough times they know that you will eventually give up and stop asking them to do anything for you.  It’s a conspiracy at the highest levels of manly deception.

And all you men out there??  We are on to you!

Mormon Peach Cobbler

The fruit, usually immersed in a sweet syrup, is traditionally covered with a biscuit topping so that it has the rough, uneven appearance of cobblestones—hence the name “cobblers”.  

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Fruit Mixture

1 29 Ounce Size Can Of Sliced Peaches In Syrup
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg

Drain the juice into a saucepan.  Mix a little of the juice with cornstarch to make a soft paste and add the paste to the rest of the juice.  Add the spices.

Heat until bubbly, stirring as needed.  The syrup should thicken to a slurry.

Pour the slurry and peaches into a small casserole dish.


1 Egg
1/3 Cup Milk
4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
1 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt

In a medium bowl, whisk the butter, milk, and egg together.  Add the sugar and stir.

Combine the dry ingredients and add them to the liquid mixture.   Stir until well combined.

Spoon over the peach mixture so that the fruit is covered.

Bake for 45 minutes or until the top is a golden brown.

Serve hot or cold with vanilla ice cream or even cold milk or crème anglaise.

Though we adore men individually, we agree that as a group they're rather stupid.
