So, my friend Dannon left a comment for me on my last post -- wanting to know how a certain recipe turned out...Shame on me for not keeping everybody up to date on that one.
It was on THIS POST -- I think. It was a recipe for "Breakfast Pizza."
I did try that recipe...a recipe I originally got in 7th grade Home Economics Class.
Let me just show in a photo what happened -- this would be why I didn't post the results.
Yes, my nice new clean oven is no longer clean. That would mainly be because of that recipe.
That evening was not a good evening. Marc was at taekwondo when all of this happened...which let me be clear that I don't blame him. He just missed the excitement.
1) Luke was whiny and crying while I was making this dinner. We found out four days later that he had a double ear infection.
2) I had the wrong kind of pizza pan for this recipe. Therefore, when the egg spilled off of the dough because I did something else wrong with the recipe (which I still haven't figured out), the egg went to the bottom of the oven (therefore, the mess).
3) Marc recently replaced the smoke detector in our kitchen. The new one is fairly sensitive. When the egg spilled in the oven, the smoke detector went off. Fortunately, this new smoke detector has a "Kitchen Silencer" button to temporarily shut it off.
**All of this happened with Luke crying/screaming/whining....
So Dannon -- I would LOVE to post about this recipe. I just need to get a few details figured out....Who knew that a 7th grade recipe would be so difficult? Perhaps I should stick to the adult recipes.
Last Saturday night, we were out to eat with our Community Life Group from church (more on that in a future blog post). It was a "kid-free" event, and so, my parents kept Luke at their house for a few hours.
Here are a few photos....
Since Luke didn't start walking until December (when it got cold and snowy), he really hasn't walked outside much. That evening, though, was nice. So, my parents had him outside. Apparently, he did some nice exploring and wondering -- all with blanket in tow, of course.
My parents have a Golden Retriever named Anna. Anna is a bit excited and hyper, but she is VERY GOOD and GENTLE with kids. Since we don't have a dog, Luke's not very familiar with them.
Usually, he's scared of Anna at first. But apparently this time, Luke took some time to pet Anna -- of course, still with the blanket.
My mom had a difficult time getting Luke to eat that evening -- Luke's going through a SEVERE picky stage. Finally, she offered him a banana while he was wondering around and playing. Of course, he ate the whole thing.
My mom thinks he just didn't want to sit and eat -- he wanted to play....that's something you get by with at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Right?
In Sunday School, our class is currently going through a DVD series called Marriage Built to Last.
After watching the DVD, we've had different exercises to do with our spouse -- based on the DVDs.
A couple of weeks ago, we were talking about small things that maybe we could work on.
I wasn't sure what Marc was going to come up with....He ultimately came up with the fact that he didn't like how I folded his running pants.
He likes them folded in thirds....I usually fold them in fourths. Then, he has to refold them to fit them properly into the dresser drawer. This apparently has been going on for the 5 1/2 years we've been married.
He drew me a picture, but it's too small to photograph for this blog.
So today, I was washing his running clothes. I remembered that small irritation that he mentioned.
I corrected the problem. The pants on the left are incorrect. The pants on the right are correct :)
I guess I'm not a perfect wife :) Ha Ha!!!!
