I cook. Lots. It's what I do because I love to do it. Every night (well, I'd say 6 out of 7 nights) I cook a full meal for my family and whoever else might wander in. I'm weird in that I don't plan ahead...I wake up in the morning and decide what I have a taste for and then shop if I need to. We don't eat a whole lot of pre-packaged foods and many of our meals are rather simple...while I love nothing more than an ooey, gooey, cheesy casserole, I have two people under my roof who don't like ooey or gooey or cheesy. (I know. I don't get it, either...) One of those will eventually move out; the other is here for the long haul.
All that being said, I know what it takes to prepare a meal. The thought that goes in to it, the time, the money. And let me tell you, if you don't have turkish neighbors...go out and find yourself some. They are friendly people who can out party the Italians (seriously) and the food?
Introducing, stuffed eggplants.
Moving on...though it's hard to do.
On Sunday we were invited to The Angel's game...our neighbor had a box, complete with free food and drink. It was SO much fun...we sat and talked and laughed and ate and even watched a little baseball now and then.
This boy of mine....this baby boy of mine, is growing up to be such a sweet young man. He was born with the sweetest of temperaments...don't get me wrong, he can toss an attitude around like nobody's business, but for the most part? He's a love.
Plus, he's really fun to hang out with. He's chatty and witty and funny.
I'm having some major work issues with a Jekyll/Hyde employee that is keeping me on my toes. Nothing unmanageable, but this work world of mine is never routine, that's for sure. As far as termite removal? Almost done. They've been painting and staining and are still up on the roof doing something or other, but I think it's nearing an end? They had said 3 weeks and this is the 3rd week...so we should be back to quiet again soon.
