I have a half a million blog posts in my head to write. Some happy, some reflective, some confessional and some plain boring.
And what am I going to post about tonight? On a Friday night...of a long weekend nonetheless? When many much cooler people are out doing something fun and interesting?
I have 10 cups of slightly freezer burnt and soon to be badly freezer burnt zucchini in my freezer that I am determined to use up, in baking, to fool my children into eating something slightly nutritional. Does anyone have a good recipe for freezer burnt zucchini? Or regular zucchini?
I went grocery shopping this morning...took me 2 hours and 10 minutes round trip thanks to my husband who graciously watched the kids as he languished on the couch with a fever and aches and pains and all that goes along with his mystery disease that has him home sick from work. I spent $325. Gosh food is getting expensive. Then I fed my kids lunch and baked all afternoon while ignoring said kids. I baked cookies and muffins. The muffins have carrots in them - nutritional. The cookies have chocolate chips in them - not so nutritional. And one type of cookies that I baked has chocolate chips and chick peas - nutritional mixed with not so nutritional and a little bit weird. The jury's still out on those ones although Natey got a punishment for stealing one when he was told no...so maybe a possible success? Something to eat when Will's at school? I hope. At 7 pm I finally finished the supper dishes and those stinkin' muffin tins. Felt like I was in the kitchen and dealing with food ALL DAY. And I guess I was.
And now I'm on my blog looking for zucchini recipes.
Yup...definitely a cool chick sitting here.
On the bright side, this fever that my husband has been running for 2 days (please God, don't let the rest of us get it) seems to be affecting him in a good way. He actually ate spaghetti squash tonight and liked it. It's a small miracle.
