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.
