The wingmen of mayhem ran me ragged all weekend. I am exhausted! LOL The eldest has been doing ok with potty training. Unless he is wearing a pullup or undies. I'm not sure how to get him to understand about pulling down his undies to pee. I will be trying some new ideas today... we'll see. As far as #2.... all over the house, not in the pot. aaarrrrgggghhhhh.... and the littlest wingman found some that I missed cleaning up. Oh, boy. Talk about gross! You don't even want to know....
I am experimenting with bread recipes. Yesterday I tried a new one for sandwich bread. I usually hate the texture of homemade bread in my bread maker for making sandwiches. THIS recipe.... I mixed it in the bread machine and baked it in loaf pans in the oven. So, the size is right and the texture... almost perfect. I am very excited. The test is when I give the boys' sandwichs for lunch using the homemade bread. If they eat it then I might have found my new recipe! We buy about 2 loaves of bread a week. If I could make my own it would definitely help with grocery expenses.
I went shopping Saturday without a list and without making me menus. Never again. I was in sticker shock. And I have spent the past 4 days without menus staring at my cabinets and freezer with no idea what to cook. I hate it. I will never skip making my menus again. I NEED to know what I am cooking so that I can defrost or plan ahead for grocery trips. I spent too much money and came away with not enough menu options. Very frustrating.
The littlest wingman of mayhem has followed in his brother's footsteps and is regularly getting into mischief now. He cannot stand it. He has to be where he is not supposed to be, doing what he is not supposed to do. I see a fun filled future ahead of me with the two of them!
All of the items in my garden have broken ground except for the carrots. Everything looks great! I now need to get my tomatoes and peppers in the ground. Also eggplant. And I am planting watermelon and pumpkin this week. And then... I may be done. It suddenly occurred to me that we will be going out of town for a week in June. My poor garden! I may have to see if I can find someone to come over and water a couple times that week. Otherwise I may come back to a dead garden.
I am rambling today. I can't seem to get my head in order. I have no ideas of anything interesting to write! LOL
I'll be back tomorrow. Hopefully with more interesting content and less rambling....
