-We had this bag of gluten-free shortbread cookie mix sitting around for a while after getting it on discount at Big Lots. Did you know Big Lots sells gluten-free mixes for cheap? Now you do.
-The cookie mix was pretty delish, but required twice as much water as the instructions said, and the cookies have a really bad habit of crumbling if not handled with care. Or if the box gets dropped three feet.
-My goal for the month of February is to get all the carpets cleaned in our house. Saturday turned into a cleaning extravaganza that has ended with almost all but one room done, a working motorcycle, three piles of dead branches in the backyard, and a steam vacuum that looks like a giant, dead scorpion on the floor.
-I had every intention of making this soup for dinner Saturday night [hearty and delicious sounds perfect after a long day of home care catch-up]. My efforts were thwarted when, upon stirring all my lentils into the pot, I discovered a black bean that wasn't actually a black bean. Being that it was supposed to be a vegetarian soup, I felt the need to dump the whole thing into the trash can. So instead we feasted on brinner/breakfast-for-dinner.
-Cute-patootie has started singing in church. And insisting on playing music constantly, while shaking her rattle or banging blocks together. As a biased mother, I find it adorable. Also, maybe a sign of musical potential? Here's to hoping...
