Bobby and hot coffee -- great way to start a Saturday.
My little intruders are almost gone. I've literally only seen two or three this morning. Another day or two and they'll be gone. Can't happen soon enough for me. Last night for the first time in weeks I actually felt comfortable cooking a full meal for dinner. Meat (groud beef patty), starch (some noodles) and a vegetable (okay, I cut up a tomato. Work with me here).
Apropos of the tomato, I had it with probably (okay, definitely) too much blue cheese dressing. I think it's time to Chop bottled salad dressings too, particularly anybody's Chunky Blue Cheese, because I love blue cheese and the creamy texture of the dressing so much that I could practically drink it. I'm sure foodnetwork.com or one of the other food sites has recipes for blue cheese and other dressings that are fresher, tastier and healthier.
My kitchen is the cleanest it's been in months. I still need to clean out the fridge and mop the floor, but all the dishes are washed and put away (not counting what's in the dishwasher, but I insist on running only full loads), the countertops are clear and the stovetop is clean. I actually feel like going into it again!
My bedroom is the one room I haven't tried to clean in ages. I'm going to devote one hour to it this afternoon. It would be nice to be able to reach my closet to put clothes away again. And tomorrow is laundry day (oh, goodie). But it'll feel great to have it all washed.
Tonight Food Network is having a Diners, Driveins and Dives marathon, and I am NOT a fan. But last night Cooking Channel ran three hours of Good Eats, and I recorded it to watch tonight. So that means I get to spend time with all three of my guys today, because Chopped is also on twice this afternoon. I also want to get back to work on the Tuscan picture I'm embroidering for the dining room.
Let's be honest, it's going to be too hot here to want to go anywhere anyway.
