I blared SIRIUS Classic Country and proceeded to make this . (Well, the crock pot is doing the actual work. Love that thing.) Not only is Mique a fabulous wife, mom, absolute creative force, she is an awesome cook. She has been kind enough to share lots of her tried and true recipes on her food blog and they all sound YUMMY.Thanks Mique! I also have a hankering to make several of these. Honestly, I have had a blog crush on Christie for a long time(she IS so cool) and now I like her even more (but not in a creepy stalker way, promise). Thanks Christie!
Lately I have been quite disappointed in myself because I have not been cooking like I should(don't fret, the eating has still been taking place, just not the best things). I seem to have fallen off the Menu Plan Monday wagon and have not been able to hop back on. I had a hard time picking up my jaw after it crashed to the floor when I read Rochelle's 3 Month Plan. Oh my. Yet it inspired me to try to get my act together. Baby steps. Must take baby steps.
On a completely different note, I am ridiculously excited about something. Yesterday afternoon I started reading Little House in the Big Woods to Annelise. I have been dying to read chapter books to her/with her when she's older, etc. I might be rushing it a bit, but I thought I would try and we will see how it goes. She paid attention and seemed interested, so I was of course thrilled. I am also thankful for the black and white sketches every couple of pages.
I am off to mix up those cookies now...
Do you experience moments of domesticity (like me)? Or are you consistently domestic?(Seriously?)
How soon did you read chapter books to/with your kidlets? Did you want to be Laura or Mary growing up? (I wanted to be Laura desperately.)
