Busy Bee

Scott decided to sleep in today so I made my own breakfast and left him to making his own. 

He eats quickly before heading off to work for the day. 

While he was at work I decided to do a million things. I'm not one to sit still. Even when I'm "relaxing" I'm still doing something else like knitting. I could never have an office job or something that had me stay in the same place.

So today I made granola, anadama bread, cleaned out the fridge, made gaucamole, took a break for lunch, washed all our light fixtures, cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed and washed the floors and made butter.

Oh and I made dinner. Chicken tikka masala. I did however forget to make naan. 

  The first thing Scott says when he comes home is, "Holy dishes Batman!"

 
Then Scott is left to all the dishes while I get to relax knit. 

We end the night early with reading in bed.

Amanda--Just follow the directions on your oatmeal container. I do 1 3/4 cup water to 1 cup oats.

At the time of this post I was reading, What Einstein Told His Cook 2. It's about the science behind food.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
