I started out the day, lazing in the bed, thinking, " I'm going to stay here as long as I want to. I've been running for days and need a break! " Ooops...then remembered that this is my sweetie's birthday.....and our anniversary on Thursday so I hopped up (you really believe that one :>/) and got in the kitchen, made coffee, and started his favorite homemade from scratch biscuits, scrambled eggs and bacon. This is a fairly new recipe and it has a touch of sugar in it. I have tried to stay away from all this bread and stuff for a lot of years ( I have no will-power it seems). But, now with the new kitchen after all the time without one I'm making all this Artisan bread that I like but he says is 'okay' and he loves the biscuits and homemade rolls that I make periodically. Today I'm also making him the "American White Bread" from the Artisan in Five Minutes a Day" book since I have a feeling he might like that kind better. We will see if it sits long enough for tonight...if not, tomorrow.
I also went to the grocery store to get rib eyes...none to be had since they were on sale and they ran out. So, he chose chicken fried steak over the Sirloin strip steak. Wouldn't you know....fried anything.
No painting this week like I'd like but MY turn is coming next week after the show opens and I get back from 2 1/2 days away in Dallas leaving him here to fend for himself.
