Ok, I have been holding out on y'all. My life is about to get so much simpler. I.am.stoked. I will have so much free energy to spend, after these past 53 weeks of limbo, I know I will asexually sprout a twin. In fact, my doppelganger has already been spotted at Lake Havasu. Sweet! I hope she's hotter than my actual self, and with BIGGER BOOBS!
I am so thankful and have found peace and quiet. Lately I have just been hot and tired...which is why I haven't posted. I even returned the 6 books I wanted to read, back to the library. I am thankful that when I go to lift there is a slap-in-the-face of cold air conditioning that helps me move some iron! I missed a phonecall last night at 10:16 because I was so sound asleep!
I successfully managed a potential horrible conflict at work. This one included name calling, a Menudo Debate, and NOT involving a 3rd party. Everyone made up and we celebrated at El Guero Canelo. I treated the other person how I would want to be treated and humbled myself when I learned I.was.wrong. Warm fuzzies all around.
On the topic of food however, we FINALLY got a new stove. The old one blew it on Memorial Day weekend. I have been thankful for the microwave and crockpot for sure! Today I fixed a macaroni and cheese with ham and peas and tomatoes, FROM SCRATCH. I had not been able to make a bechamel sauce on the old stove and I was surprised how amazingly simple it was. Baby G gulped it up. Same with my Chickpea soup last night. I will probably post an analogy later about cooking with an old, *too hot* stove, in the dark as compared to my new stove. The art of cooking is so.much.easier!
Lastly, the basil plant I bought at TJs is thriving in benign neglect. I decided to try Basil Ice Cream using about 3T fresh basil instead of the mint in this recipe:
Chocolate Mint Ice Cream
Again, the photos will not do it justice but you should know that baby G wanted to scrape out the frozen bowl of the mixer and was still doing so after 10 minutes. Badow! This stuff is.that.good!
So, happy *official* summer to everyone! I hope you are stoked enough to grow your own twin!
