Today's little photo is something that happens almost daily around here. We have a little "policy" that the person who empties the milk bottle is the person who should rinse the bottle and leave it to drain. Believe it or not, I have seen the milk level fall even below this paltry line and still be occupying space in the frig. I am sure you can figure out the reason for that...please tell me that these boys will grow up to be productive members of society with three digit IQs and a conscientiousness that will ensure a safe arrival and pass-through at the Pearly Gates. I am starting to have doubts.
No recipe today as it was a crazy busy day and when I finish posting this, I am hiding out with my book until sleep overtakes me...it is rainy and dreary here, so that seems an okay occupation for the remainder of the evening.
Okay, I saw this next idea a bit ago and I was thinking, "How fun...," but then I figured that this would involve a lot of chocolate commitment and I thought, "Not so much me," as I really am not a chocolate fan. I kept thinking about it, because my family tends to be big in the "I Love Chocolate" department, and a good wife/mother would try to accommodate such things in an ideal world.
Soooooooooooooo...I did it. I signed up at the Tuesdays with Dorie food blog to participate in the cook-along each week (I think the requirement is actually only twice a month, but you all know how compulsive I am, so I will probably try for the weekly thing). http://tuesdayswithdorie.wordpress.com/ The premise is that members in the group (and it is a hefty group at this point) select and bake the same recipe each week from Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours cookbook and then post about it on their own blogs. You can check the other participants' blogs if you like, or not. I don't know...this could be sorta fun, so I am giving it a whirl. I tend to just bake the same things over and over, so this should inspire more of a variety, which my guys always love and appreciate...reason enough.
In light of this, I am changing the order of things here at the Table to accommodate this little venture. While Tuesdays here have become Craft Day and Wednesdays (when I get around to it) are Recipes...I will change it next week to Tuesdays being the Recipe Day and post the TWD recipe (which is a requirement if you join the cook-along-blog). I will have Craft Day on Wednesdays, which works out better anyway since my knitting class is on Wednesdays. (I am sure there is a knit-along somewhere in blogland, but I am also sure I would never be able to keep up with that one!)
Have a great evening...I'm off to get into my jammies, stack up about six fluffy pillows, throw on a comfy quilt, adjust my reading lamp just-so, and spend the rest of it reading, reading, reading! Brrrr...it is cold here tonight!
