I don't know how I got it done today I have been up since 5:30 the kids have been in ma hold me mode all day, umpteen dirty diapers, breakfast, lunches, with DH in my way and making the kids howl cuz they didn't want to wait for him to eat first, The dog got sick on the rug, Livi was my one briight spot today but even she wanted to be held..But, I did get a veal stew going and now it smells yummy, have some rolls baking and will do a green salad maybe or maybe not..no darn dessert, the freezer is full of ice cream so that is gonna have to do..Okay, took a minute and tasted the stew, it's yummy with onions, celery,garlic, turnips,tiny youkon gold taters,carrots, mushrooms, nice gravy with a touch of white wine in it..Now, to finish up with the kids who are napping YIPPEE and pray I don't fall face down in the stew...

Well shoot, Wednesdays are the night I have freedom from the kids but my class was canceled due to the snow.

If I can send dh to the little store up the road, then we'll have potatoes au gratin with ham and gruyere. If he doesn't want to drive in the snow, then I have no idea what we'll have.

I am actually making dinner tonight.

Spinach and Fontina stuffed Berkshire pork chops, roasted red pepper and rosemary risotto and wilted spinach with a little of the rendered pork fat, and a squeeze of lemon.

Sure beats the junk I have been eating/getting delivered the past two weeks...

Bless you, kads, I don't know how you do it--you make me look lazy when I can't make a meal like that with only one kiddo in hold-me mode!

Today was my husband's 62nd birthday, and the start of his official retirement. He's been burning vacation days for the last 6 weeks.
We took went to the mall down the road in the "big town", and had his ear pierced, then had a "what a meal" at Red Lobster. We both had Ceasar salads, a crabcake appetizor, and those wonderful little cheese/herb biscuits they serve.
My dinner was a lobster tail, crab legs, 6 fried shrimp and 6 shrimp scampi with one of their crispy-skinned baked potatoes loaded with butter and sour cream.
Kim loves fried stuff, so he had a whole bunch of fried shrimp, bay scallops, clams, fish and French fries.

It's been a beautiful day, and very mild for this time of year. His kids did what they should have and my daughter came by while ago with a pan of brownies, so Granpa's chocolate urges will be satisfied. Right now, he's having a rum drink and listening to Jimmy Buffet.


So good.....

We headed down the road to a "big town" to get his ear pierced, then had a "what a meal" at Red Lobster. All the kids did the right things, it was sunny and very mild for this time of year, and an altogether perfect day.

As for the meal...we both had Ceasar salads, a crabcake appetizor, and those wonderful little cheese/herb biscuits they serve.

I'm wishing your husband a Happy Birthday and Happy Retirement all in one. That meal sounds wonderful that you had at RL.
So tell you hubby to enjoy Jimmy Buffet and his Margaritaville rum drink and maybe tomorrow he'll be in the mood for a Cheeseburger in Paradise!

Never Pa,
I can't imagine you lazy. A stew for dinner was easy, it was having to keep putting the toothpicks back under my eyelids that was a chore Once little Sofie, is over the sleep trouble she will fall into a routine just like mine have most days.. You will find and be suprised how much you'll get done..Besides the time you spen with that precious little girl the better dust bunnies come and go, keep her at your side as long as you can. I've learned to work around naps, 15 min with pa chasing them and I get a lot done..Then at night I come visit here and relax.. So, don't let me hear another word about you being lazy young lady
hugs to you and Sof
