For the first time in forevety, I'm re-reading Katehrine Kerr's Deverry series. Had forgotten how much I like it. Spent a large part of yesterday evening lying on the couch reading the first book.
For the first time in a slightly less forevety amount of years, we had caprioskas. Numnumnum. The excess lime issue has been dealt withn and a new bottle of vodka will need to be purchased soon.
The boys did not go a-visiting the grandparents on Sunday. Granpapa has shingles :(
I still managed to have a doze on the couch. I'm clever that way.
Torby even had a nap as well. Not that he was tired you understand. He was very vehement about his lack of tiredness. The fact that he was half-asleep and being carried into the house from the car while he was proclaiming it didn't really help his cause.
In between sleeping in (until 10am!), shopping and dozing on the couch, I managed to make chickeny vegetabley noodley soup for freezing and lunches and roasted some capsicums.
I think dinner tonight will involve roasted vegies and sausage lumps with the capsicum and some pesto and salady leaves.
It's a variation from the Dinner Plan (tm) for this week but I think it will work.
The Dinner Plan (tm) has been very useful for trying new recipes.
Is cunning when the new stuff I'm making can also be made for more than 2 people (with leftovers).
One of the things that stresses me out with cooking is timing. Not such an issue when it's just the two of us. We can, and have, eaten roast carrot for entree, then the roast chicken and with some roast potatoes for dessert (for instance). I'm just not convinced that everyone else wants to eat that way. So it's nice that a few recipes I've tried have been able to feed guests with a minimal amount of swearing on my behalf.
We spent a large part of Sunday reformatting and updating a laptop we got given. It's destined to be Torby's 'busy' when the current one (my old laptop) finally dies. The poor piece of machinery is missing half the keys and has been dropped so many times it's a wonder it hasn't exploded. Hmm it's probably the large amount of toast crumbs and apple juice that have been drizzled into it that's keeping it all together.
The new(to us at least) one is still shiny and has keys and a cd drive that opens easily and doesn't have a fine coating of stickiness. It's quite miraculous.
19 sleeps until my birthday!
