|I'm a Golden Whale!|
The next 18 weeks are going to be busy but I am trying not to stress about it too much. I will just focus on the tasks of each week and we will make it to May, the end of the school year. After that, my plans depend on my nephew's driving ability.
Anyway, enough talk about the future. The weather has been very nice this weekend and I did a lot of pruning and weeding in the back and front yards. I didn't get to cleaning up the alley yet. Maybe next weekend. My nephew is supposed to help me with that project.
I've been working on my cooking skills. It started when I was watching Worst Cooks in America. Ok, it started before that since I have always wanted to cook good tasting food, but during this particular break from work, I started watching that show and then I actually went out and bought ingredients to try things myself. I cooked a whole chicken for the first time in my life and it turned out quite tasty. I bought spices and I've been using them. I also bought garlic and an onion but I only used the garlic so far. I wish I had more time at the house with the oven because I bought ingredients for beef stew, lasagna, meatloaf, and macaroni and cheese. I'm trying to make the meals from scratch that I usually buy as frozen bricks. I'm not going to make every meal from scratch but maybe I can cook one or two meals on the weekend and freeze them for later in the week. That would be a huge improvement from my usual routine of opening a can or putting a box in the microwave.
Well, break time is over. I better keep up or life will pass me by. Time to get this year started!
