Taking a little break
I'm having a party for my son's second birthday tomorrow so no time for blogging today - too much to do! - but I will post about the potato salad and the cake later this weekend. In the meantime, I have a few random thoughts.
I'm so happy that the part for my oven came! Tell me, how did people maintain their homes before the internet? If I didn't have the internet, I probably would have gone out and purchased a new oven. But instead, I powered up the computer and a few googles later I knew exactly which part I needed, where to get it, how to install it and now my oven is fixed. I've fixed my dryer using the internet too .
The other thing I wanted to mention was the difference in my eating since starting this blog. You think I would have fattened up but I haven't. Last night I wasn't working with a recipe - I put together a dish of cheese tortellini, jarred sauce, preshredded cheese and ground beef. That's how I used to cook - I'd use the drive home to think of what I could throw together for dinner. Now, don't get me wrong, it was delicious but it was way too rich and I ate way too much of it. When I put effort into following a recipe, I don't tend to eat as much, no matter how good it is. And I don't think anyone would have written a recipe adding as much cheese as I did!
