Day In Pictures

Well, I won’t bore you with the pictures of the 3 loads of laundry (that I haven’t put away yet) and the 2 loads of dishes (second just finished). But, I have some pictures of the funner stuff from today.

First, I did some work–and got some payday details worked out. But, on to the fun part. Breakfast! We made some cake batter waffles.

Got all the ingredients together. Cake batter, oil, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, and added some sprinkles in for some extra fun–probably should’ve waiting until the end and folded them in with a spoon. DSCN2067But, I didn’t so, it turned the waffles a pretty color. DSCN2073DSCN2074

Poured some batter on and closed the lid.

A few messes were made, but that’s how memories are too.

First one down–only a couple more to go. DSCN2071Got a plate ready for each kiddos.

I told you they turned the batter a funny color.

Finished the last one–it almost came out perfect.

After a little more work done around the house and some work work got done, I made some homemade bread. The last two loaves of bread I’ve bought, Mr. hated! I mean hated! He couldn’t eat them so, I have a bunch of bread to find something to make that I’ll eat. Ugh–more gluten, dang it. :S I didn’t take before picture, when I was making the bread–first time and it was crazy stuff.

Here’s the after part–the golden color is from using an egg to coat it.

I couldn’t wait to slice into that delicious smelling bread.

So soft!! Not even kidding you! It’s like a pillow.

Is a loaf a day too much?

Now it’s time to relax with the kiddos, get them some dinner, jammies, and try to get them to play in their room. Then, I need to work–and if I have energy in there somewhere, I need to get the 3+ loads of laundry put away that I’ve been delaying.

But, that’s today–later this week, I think we’ll try to make this.

Practice makes Perfect

I started watching Guy’s Grocery Game. It’s very cool! I love the creative challenge in it so, I was a bit inspired. Now, I have an advantage because I can sit here and think about it, after I saw them do it but, I am also not in a grocery store, I am going to try to complete a challenge with what we have here, in the house.

I don’t eat seafood so, I skipped that one, because even if I did, there’s none in the house so… My challenge for tonight is going to be…

A Mexican dish using: Kikkoman, something green, jarred pickled veggie, protein, corn product, something red & dairy product.

Doesn’t seem so hard, does it… But, I am not sure that we have it all here in the house.

So… Here it goes. 🙂
