Food, Food, Cleaning!

 For some reason, today revolved around food in my mind.  I'm not exactly sure why, it just did.  For starters, I was bidding on some Toffee Bacon Shortbread.  No, I didn't win.  But now I'm going to hunt down the recipe.  While surfing through the site, I also found a recipe for bacon jam.   Oh, I need to try this! I'm just a wee bit of a bacon fiend. :)

 We get a local/non-local organic food box.  Last box came with a lemon and I stumbled upon a recipe for lemon squares calling for a whole lemon.  My best friend is in town and loves lemon, so I made that for her this afternoon.  They are seriously good!

 Yes, I did more than think about food today.  In keeping with my Lenten goals, I not only cleaned, I made my children clean.  They were slightly bitter about this(and my blood pressure went up several notches), but after my speech on learning responsibility as children so they could succeed as adults, they stopped complaining.  I'd like to think that they were motivated when really they just wanted to switch me out of lecture mode.  However, I think my house is slightly cleaner...We did vacuum and mop but I'm really not sure you can tell.

 Tomorrow I hope to make guacamole soup and maybe some borscht.  I haven't decided yet.  But I think my leftovers stash is running a bit low, as Steve takes leftovers to work with him.  I much prefer this to his earlier habit of eating canned stew. *shudder*

 I'm exhausted, so good-night all!


  1. Your blog post makes me hungry. We had Subway for dinner because I was too lazy to cook. I shared my sandwich with two kids, and now I'm starving, and, unfortunately, it's slim pickin's.

  2. I want to cook and clean SO BAD. But I'm stuck here at a desk. Your blog makes me JEALOUS. Thanks for writing.

  3. Yum! I have been wanting to bake for a few days, but I haven't made the time.
