Scenes (from the weekend)




The good........

I got to giggle with my girlfriends (and our boys) Saturday night.  Dinner at our favorite Italian spot and a new downtown venue afterward. 


The bad.........

There was a heatwave on Saturday and Sunday.........temps in the 60's.  Which was actually good.  Except it made us want to clean the garage.  So the mister could park INSIDE for the first time in almost three years.  I guess that's good too.  It's just bad that it took that long.


The ugly........

I'm trying out a new recipe tonight.  I did not read ahead prior to purchasing the ingredients.  It requires you to make three. different. recipes.  Then you combine them in a casserole for the final product.  I am a one-step-recipe kinda girl.  This had better be good.


The worst thing of all.........

I have a stack of papers to grade by tomorrow.  Four sets actually.

I am dying inside.

  2. What a weekend! Sounds like you enjoyed your warm weekend...by cleaning the garage :). I can't wait to hear how your recipe turns out. If I am going to make something in the crock pot, I do not want there to be a 3 part recipe step before it all comes together. Good luck grading your papers...doesn't look like there is anything exciting on tonight so hopefully you won't be too distracted :)

  7. Oh girl! Three recipes in one? Crazy. :) I have a friend who does that all the time, but I am with you - lets keep it simple. :) Simple can still be yummy right!? You'll have to let us know how your culinary masterpiece turns out. :)

  10. Hope the recipe was worth all those separate steps... That's kind of ridiculous!

    Happy Monday!

  11. hi Danavee! Thanks for your comment on my 99¢ purchase / find! Too bad you have too many papers to grade. I had a teacher in HS (biology) that was so smart. He taught me so much, but he always had our neighbors correct our papers. I thought that was genius. He was a happy jolly guy all the time. Perhaps that's why?

  15. I would have gotten so mad at the three stupid recipes - you're stronger than me, I would have given up! Hope the end product was worth it! :)

  18. I wouldn't mind a 60s heatwave about now. We've been -30 for the past couple days. x.x And i laughed out loud about your recipe debacle because i totally do that. I'll start "making" something when i haven't even read the whole thing through once and then be like, "oh. whoops."
