I’ve been remiss in my blog posts. Two days ago I posted too much and then yesterday…nothing. Or maybe it was three days ago, and nothing the last two? Anyway, I have white wine reducing on the stovetop right now for a delicious sauce for ravioli…hubby’s dinner request. The next 2 days of dinner I also have planned out: corn chowder and chicken parmesan meatloaf. I hope they turn out better than Friday night’s breakfast dinner. You may wonder who can screw up cooking breakfast food. The answer- I can. I bought this buckwheat pancake mix from the grocery store instead of the white flour kind, because I wanted to make semi-healthy breakfast for myself and J. Friday night I used it for the second time as dinner. They looked freaking weird! I’m attaching a photo as proof. It’s sad that I can’t even make a pancake properly. I’m hoping this ravioli turns out better than the pancakes… more to follow
I just discovered I can blog from my iPhone!! Uh Oh!! I’ll never stop now! *evil laughter*
First, let me say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these individual iced coffee packets from Starbucks! If you buy them from Walmart, they come out to about $1.25 per glass + plus whatever you pay for any cream or sugar you add. It still adds up when you drink at least one every day, I know. My friend sent me a post recently about how to cold brew iced coffee, so one of these days when I get the time (yeah right!), I’m going to check it out and see how to do it. Next… normally I’d be concerned about ordering anything from China, but I’d read a lot of reviews about the Alva Baby cloth diapers company, and they were mostly positive. Their diapers are by far the cheapest I’ve come across ($5.99 for an AI2 and free shipping!), so I ordered one today to see if I like them. The site was a bit of a nightmare to order from. It was, possibly, user error. I’ll admit that. Oh, I want to add that I’m all for buying American, but let’s be honest…Americans are never going to sell a cloth diaper for $5.99, because we won’t work for 10 cents an hour! Military families do NOT have a lot of money, unless the service member is high-ranking. So I’ll order from China with no qualms, thank you very much.
