Ever have one of those days where you just can't get up the gumption to do anything? That has been me the last two days!
I kind of wonder if it's an easter hang over...
I was overly ambitious with my culinary endeavors and made several recipes I had never tried before.
There were strawberry donuts with strawberry glaze and French Toast with strawberry butter and yes we did fall into a sugar coma directly after breakfast and I slept from 10 am until 1pm!
Then I started making my sweet potato gnocchi and as if that isn't time consuming enough I decided to make regular gnocchi because one family member despises sweet potatoes with a passion I have never seen before. So okay bring on the gnocchi! It took me all day, then I had to make the mornay sauce and then roast the asparagus and make the corn bread and the salad, well actually I forgot the salad to be quite honest.
The gnocchi was a huge success both kinds, tho my boys didn't like the mornay sauce. And the asparagus was perfection, the corn bread (a new recipe I was trying, buttermilk cornbread) turned out sadly flavor less.
But with all that frenzied kitchen activity packed into one day, and the late night playing easter bunny I just couldn't seem to muster up anything more than a cup of tea and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. For every meal and snack!
Monday and Tuesday I honestly didn't want to do anything. And I mean nothing, nada, zero, zip, zilch. No dishes, no meals, no school. Monday we did manage to get our lessons in but Tuesday was a failure and it didn't help that my new shiny, as I am going to call it, arrived mid morning on Tuesday. My new shiny is the Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 and I am loving it, but it definitely has been distracting, for me and my kiddos. They love all the drawing apps and those damn Angry Birds, they are addicting! We resisted as long as we could but they have Star Wars Angry Birds! Star Wars for cripes sake! How is a fangirl supposed to resist?!
