Pure Heart: Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1. Baby Bear: Why can't I have the same size cup as you, daddy?
Daddy Bear: You do, that big cup is mama's. Lesson learned, next time you and I will do the shopping.

2. Mom (angrily, coming into the kitchen and seeing all of the cups and glasses on the counter): You know we have a sink. And a dishwasher. Do we have to leave every dirty glass on the counter?
Son: Before I say anything, I need to know one thing: is that a rhetorical question, or do you really want me to answer it?

3. Son: Everything's gone, there's nothing to drink.
Mom: That works, since you didn't leave any clean cups to drink from.
Son: Really Mom, have you met me? A cup doesn't have to be clean . . .

4. Hubs: What's for dinner?
Wife: Nothing.
Hubs: Nothing?
Wife: Since you guys left me no clean counter space to work with, I assumed you didn't want dinner.
Hubs (calling to son): I think maybe we should have cleaned up the dirty dishes . . .

5. Mom (walking into the kitchen): What happened last night after I went to bed? You made a mess of my house.
Teenager: You know what they say about a messy house . . .
Mom: No, what?
Teenager: A messy house is a sign of a great party.
Mom: You know what else they say? Have clean hands and a pure heart. Well honey, you're about to have the cleanest hands in the neighborhood.

And now for something yummy:

Whipped Peanut Butter Brownie Cups

6 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 TBSP milk

9 TBSP butter
3 oz unsweetened chocolate
3/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup flour

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper cupcake cups in 12 cupcake tin wells.
*Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, peanut butter and milk. Place about 1/4 - 1/3 cup of this mixture into a baggie for piping onto the top when the Whipped Peanut Butter Brownie Cups have cooled.
*Melt together the butter and unsweetened chocolate in microwave until smooth when whisked. Whisk in the vanilla and sugar. Once fully mixed, whisk in the eggs and finally mix in the flour.
*Fill the cupcake papers until 2/3 full, dollop each with the peanut butter mixture (not what's in the baggie), press down gently, then top with the remaining brownie batter.
*Bake for 22 - 25 minutes or until the center is set. Cool completely.
*Once they are cool, pipe the remaining peanut butter mixture onto the tops of the brownie cups.


  1. Peanut Butter Brownie Cups would last five minutes at my house and that is soley because of me!
    Love your quotes. Number 3 is every man I've ever met. LOL. Happy friday, friend <3

    1. Yeah, those Peanut Butter Brownie Cups lasted a hot minute here too.

  2. Oh my gosh...2 & 3 are so real!! But as a mom of boys you know. oh how I miss peanut butter, those brownie cups look divine.

    1. LOL, they're real to you because you lived in a house full of men just like I did.

  3. These Brownies would not make it off the cooking rack. YUM!

    1. And is there something wrong with that? 'Cause that's pretty much been the story of my baking with kids in the house.

  4. Nothing wrong from my view point as long as I get there first.

  5. Yep. All true!
    Hmmm...I think I'm going to use that 'clean hands-pure heart' thing. I'll let you know how it goes! ;)

    1. Depending on how it goes, I'll gladly take the credit but will skip the blame.

  6. I wish someone would make this for me and just give me one or two. If I made them myself, I would eat the whole thing just as soon as it came out of the oven. Alana

    1. That's not a problem with a bunch of kids around, but now that the boys are mostly gone, I have that problem here too.

  7. Mine family got a poem mounted over the kitchen sink.

    Dirty dishes in the sink
    Look so bad and really stink,
    So nasty, mom can hardly think!
    Put them in the dishwasher!

    Dirty dishes, what a pain,
    My sink's not a bucket, it's a drain,
    Let's make mommy smile again!
    Put them in the dishwasher!

    Throw them in there any old way,
    Come morning, mom will smile and say,
    My sink is empty, hip hooray!
    Put them in the dishwasher!

    Believe it or not, it worked. They read it, laughed, and learned. Then my dishwasher died and i haven't had one since. Oh, well.

    1. You had me cheering for you right up until you said you haven't gotten a new dishwasher. I don't know what I'd do without mine.

  8. oh man, you really got them with the 'no dinner' routine. pretty soon they'll be cleaning every section of the house, in return for your fabulous meals!

  9. Can you send me some of those brownie cups?!

    Also, I feel like this was taken in my house!
