it's my little buddy's birthday so i'm not sure if we're gonna make something or go out. at 2 years old, he doesn't really have a favourite restaurant yet.

last night we tied bunches of baloons all over the house, and set out his presents. i woke up early, and waited, and waited, and waited for him to wake up. i was able to get his expression on my video camera as it turned from sleepy eyes to ones full of amazement and surprise when he came walking into the living room. that one i wil cherish forever...

originally I had to take my mother to a drs. apt tonight. but, this girl is tired so I cancelled it for sometime in April when maybe I've slept.

that means I'll be home tonight so cooking's on. I must check the freezer and see what jumps out at me. Hope they're doing a circus in there so I don't have to plow through it myself.


Fireplace is cracklin, so dinner will be a batch full of carbs. that's not good on the waistline, but it's pouring here and I feel like comfort food. so far, I made a cream of potato soup, with bacon rendered, onions, garlic, potatoes cooked in the ''breakfast home fries'' way, so in bacon grease, deglazed in small amount of w/w, then 1/2 and 1/2, an egg beaten with water and chicken broth. Right before serving, I'll stir in sour cream for richness and my chives from the front yard over the top and spinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top. This with a hearty green salad plus garlic break on sourdough, will hit the spot. I thought of cooking elbow macaroni noodles then draining (and in same pot while noodles are hot) adding cheddar and salt and pepper too, simply in a saucepan with no muss or fuss, but thought that'd be overkill on the carbs although it sounds wonderful and I still may do that........ .........

Leftover beef barley soup from last. There are two potato pancakes left from last night too, so I guess mom and dad and I can fight over them. I might make a coffee cake - we'll see.

Bucky Happy Birthday to your little guy. I think that's a pic we'd all love to see.
Kads Happy Birthday to your girl too.

As far as dinner goes I'm the only one home AGAIN. I think I'm just going to toss a pot pie into the oven.
