I will readily admit, I don’t come up with that many original recipes (It’s really something I should work on). 99% of the time I head into the kitchen with the laptop open to a blog, or a cookbook, or a page torn out of a magazine. But last night? It was just me and my brain.
After setting it on the table I got pretty much the best compliment ever. Mike said “this is so good! Is it from Heidi?” It wasn’t, but it seems like something totally her style, and come to think of it, I think she has made something very similar. But anyway, he liked it. And it was one of those meals that just makes you feel healthier. Considering the amount of cupcakes I’ve been making lately, we are in desperate need for meals like that.
It’s been housewife week at our house (school is closed for Presidents week) and I am discovering once again how horrible I am at being a stay-at-home person. I am, of course, grateful the extra time I get to spend with Ellie, but these days she’s more into Sophie than me.
It probably makes me the worst mom ever, but I actually dropped her off at daycare for a couple hours so I could run 8 miles, work on a proposal for a summer job interview tomorrow, and do the dishes. I figured it would be better to just get everything done so that I could give her 100% of my attention once my to-do list was complete. You can blast me in the comments, I can take it!
