Don't call me Betty Crocker

I had the day off today for the MLK holiday. Bear and I spent a lovely day hanging around the house. I made an amazing loaf of honey wheat bread in the breadmaker. Then I made a new recipe for dinner. It was a broccoli cheese casserole thing I had never made before. It took forever to make with steaming the vegetables and cutting everything up. It looked delicious and we were eager to try it.

YUCK! It was NOT good. That is so disapointing. I spent all this time, not to mention the ingredients on something that had no flavor. As my husband says, I get it right 99% of the time. This was one of those horrible 1% nights. We ended up throwing the whole thing in the trash and picking up Taco Bell. Oh well, at least my bread was good.

We got home from Taco Bell with our food and sat down at the coffee table to eat. We are klassy like that. Bear is very interested in everything we eat now and kept sticking his fingers in my nachos and pulling cheese off my taco. Then he grabbed my iced tea and dumped it all over the table, my food, and my lap. I'm glad I at least have some more yummy coconut macaroons I made this weekend to give me solace. Back to the grind tomorrow.

I cooked up some very expensive sea bass tonight and it was kinda bleh so I know how you feel. Better luck to both of us next time!

Greeeat. Now I'm craving Taco Bell and macaroons. It's probably better for me than cement, but not by much! Mmm, gorditaaaa...

When that happens with us (thankfully, rarely) we pick up Taco Bell, too.
