Where does time go anyway? It’s never around when I need it.
It always seems like a day turns into a week and week into a month and then I realize I haven’t updated the blog or my Twitter or anything else in an eternity. Then I realize I have homework due.
I really haven’t done much baking so I don’t have any sweet-ness to share.
I have been spending my free time painting a coffee table and making a craft table and trying to learn to sew. That is complicated stuff. At least for me.
And then I woke up last week with a horrible, itchy rash all over my arms and the back of my neck. I went to the doctor and got a steroid shot. I thought I might be allergic to something like the paint for the table but the doc said it looked more like a rash from a viral infection. Regardless, it’s not contagious because I’m the only one that has it. Yes. I still have bumps on my arm but they aren’t red or itchy and they seem to be subsiding. Very slowly.
I have been scouring the Internet searching for some source of inspiration to get baking again. It’s hard since the hubs and I are trying to lose weight. We have no self-control so it’s just better for us to not have it in the house, which puts a damper on material for the blog.
I found a recipe for cinnamon roll cupcake which sounds very promising.
We also started working on the menus and made some crock pot meals that I found on Pinterest. So far so good. It has kept us from eating out a lot which is something I discovered we do way too much of. I made Beef and Broccoli in the crock pot last night and pizza balls tonight. Both were successful meals. I considered meals successful if my husband and children like them. I can like something they hate and therefore it doesn’t count as success and never gets made again. Just differences in taste.
So if you have suggestions or ideas for baking let me know. Or some good crock pot dinners or anything else really, let me know.
