Up at the Crack of Dawn

I got up at 5:00 this morning.  I will be having a nap later on today! 

Yesterday, we went into Pierre, and I bought two weeks worth of groceries.  I have enough food to make thirteen recipes.  This is the first time in our marriage that I will have cooked like that.  I have a plan, and it feels good.  Our cart was full, and we had to ice down our food so that it would not perish on the drive home. 

I am in love.  I got to go to the Italian Restaurant in Pierre.  I had Lobster Mac and Cheese.  I had creme brulee.  These are things that I thought I was giving up for good living in South Dakota.  I know where I will be eating at next week when I go back!

Last night I made Pineapple Pretzel Fluff:

This was a big hit!  It is a great balance of salt and sweet. 

We played a board game called Dicecapades.  It was a lot of fun.  There were five of us who got together.  She made homemade pizzas, and I loved the crust.  I want to get the Pampered Chef Pizza cooking board now.  She didn't have her air conditioning on, which made the place hotter than you can imagine.  I am so spoiled when it comes to AC.  A lot of people don't have it here, or it takes a lot for them to turn it on. 

On the Agenda Today:

2.  Clear off the dining room table.
3.  Cook dinner from one of my recipes (pictures forthcoming)
4.  Get packages from the post office.

I made HH a to-do list.  In the evenings, it honestly felt like I was being a nag.  Asking him to do this, then that.  I don't really have anything that is "high need", I just want it to get done.  He seemed happy with that.  We have his desk and one more bookshelf being delivered on Tuesday, then he can start tackling the office.

That fluff sounds delish! Glad to hear you guys are settling in so nicely, and already making friends and socializing!
