Long Live the 80s/90s: Flashback to our Childhood Obsessions (Part 2)
Snap! Crackle! Pop!We're serving up the best of the 80s/90s on a silver platter, just like Mr. Belvedere! We go from The Wonder Years to Nickelodeon and everything in between in TV land (but why were there so many puppets?). Elizabeth and Stephanie almost end their friendship over whether or not Swan's Crossing was a thing, and Elizabeth finally defines her very specific qualifications for "dirty men." Which side are you on? Dirty bad boy or preppy class president? It's such a conMOMdrum!In our #SUPERDOMESTIC moments this week, Stephanie presents an updated oatmeal cream pie (although we bet the shelf life of those suckers in the 90s means they're still good), and Elizabeth explains how her past job history made her the modern domestic woman that she is today.So slow your roll...fruit rollup, that is.... pop your TV dinner in the microwave, and let's travel back in time to an era where Clarissa explained everything and visions of Pacey (or maybe Dawson) danced in your head.Recipe Box:Oatmeal Cream Pies: https://www.mybakingaddiction.com/homemade-oatmeal-cream-pies/ Pineapple Upside Down Cake: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/pineapple-upside-down-cake-recipe-2112020 See you next time-- down at Fraggle Rock!

Instagram/Twitter: @mdmthepodEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org BONUS ADD NOT ON THE POD: Stephanie's #superdomestic insight: HAMSTER VS. GERBILIf you're considering a "pocket pet," there are some key differences to know here! First of all, gerbils are the ones with a tail! They're also more social and typically, more friendly. They love to interact with people and have no problem being handled by your kiddo! However, because they are so social (unlike hamsters, many of which can be territorial), your gerbil might want a gerbil friend. Also, they will want to be in a main part of your house to be part of the action! And psssttt to moms-- gerbils are not solely nocturnal so they WON'T keep you up at night (a hamster will, squeaking on that wheel!), and they were desert animals so guess what? Less pee-pee! Now if your heart is set on that hamster, Syrian is considered to be a more friendly type. Remember you'll need to keep the cage clean and let it exercise safely.
