It’s Friday. And that is the day that I confess.
I confess…that I am NOT in cahoots with Mother Nature, and that I am NOT to blame for this storm we’re getting today. Dudes. I like snow IN THE WINTER TIME. I’m no more impressed by this nasty little trick than any of you. Snow in April sucks donkey balls.
I confess...that I feel like crying up to the heavens, “WHY US?!?!??!” Of course, on April 12th, the day we planned to take my mom out for a nice dinner to celebrate her birthday, they are calling for up to 20 cm of snow and ice pellets and maybe some freezing rain too. OF COURSE THEY ARE.
I confess…that I have to keep repeating to myself, “There’s no point in wasting energy complaining about something we have no control over.” It is my mantra today. Deep breaths.
I confess…that I’m still secretly hoping the weathermen are all bonkers. Or blowing things way out of proportion. Or both.
I confess…that I like to pretend I’m one of those innovative cooks off of Diners, Drive-Ins or Dives, or Eat St. Especially when it comes to paninis. I have had some successes, some failures. This week’s invention? Avocado, tomato, and cheddar cheese with Tsatziki spread (I used the Epicure seasoning mixed with fat-gree plain Greek yogurt). And ohmygod, it was delicious.
I confess… that I had that particular panini two nights in a row with oven-baked sweet potato fries, and it is officially my new favourite dinner.
I confess… that I’m still always a little bit surprised when I find something even remotely healthy that doesn’t taste like crap.
I confess… that my day was made on Wednesday evening when these little studs showed up at my front door…
That is my Godson Cowan and his buddy Johnny. They were getting all slicked up for their Grad Auction on Thursday at school, and I was thrilled to get a “sneak peek”. Handsome, handsome, handsome!! They are some lucky ladies up at that high school, let me tell ya! ;)
I confess… that it’s always a good night when Cowan shows up at my door in a costume…
Halloween 2011 I think…?
I confess… that I hope Cowan doesn’t see this blog post… He’s shy and hates when I put his pictures up on my blog! LOL!
And… I think that’s all I’ve got today, folks! Happy Friday, drive safe, and keep your fingers crossed that the weathermen are all just bonkers, K?
K. Love to all of you. :)
