Alright, alright! Enough with the details of what a bad housekeeper I am...I'm starting to feel like a slacker!
Anyway, one of my particularly bad domestic habits is not putting away the laundry. I've even been known to leave it for days on end in the dryer.
Usually I feel bad about that, but tonight it was one of the best decisions I've made in days!
You see, my husband and I have this new routine where he goes to bed with the baby, and I get to stay up late and
So, most nights before they get into bed, I rush around in the bedroom gathering up all my supplies and stashing them away for the winter like a squirrel. But some nights (like tonight) I don't get in there in time, and then I have to make the ever-difficult decision about whether or not to risk waking my sleeping baby by creeping into the room to get something. Usually the answer is not.
But tonight, as I was sitting down to read my favorite blogs, I was kicking myself for having to sit on the couch in my work clothes instead of my comfy pajama pants and fuzzy socks.
Then I remembered that the laundry was still in the dryer! And wouldn't you know it? I'd just done a load of darks. Comfy pajama pants, fuzzy socks, and all.
And while I'm here in my most comfortable pants, blogging all by myself, feeling a little bit like a kid at a sleepover (minus a dozen thirteen year old girls playing Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board) and just because I like you: I'll share this deep, dark secret with you. Late at night, when I'm in my most comfortable pants, blogging all by myself, I fry cheese.
That's right. I put it in a pan and fry it up. I don't add anything or do anything to it. Just fry it. Sure, it may not be Heart Smart Diet-approved, but I figure it's no worse than eating a string cheese for a snack. And I'd do that.
Usually I use parmesan because it cooks up into delicious little crispy wafers of pure heaven, but sometimes - like tonight - I run out of parmesan and try out other kinds of cheese. Note to self: the cheddar produced less than stellar results.
That's all the madness I've got for you right now! I hope you'll come back to my sleepover another day...
