January 4, 2010

Back to school and regular routines today and all went well! I think the kids were excited to be back with their friends. The silence in the house seemed strange after 2 weeks of solid noise.

I have decided I need to cut down on use of the drier and pulled out my awesome and amazing clothes rack that my dad helped me build a few years ago. We have a free to us drier that takes 3 cycles to dry a load of clothes. I need to get it repaired or replace it but until then this works wonders!

I didn't get any organizing done today however, I did complete my to do list and got some errands run. I tried the new waffle iron this morning and the homemade "eggos" were a hit. Made enough for breakfast and 4 extras for the freezer. That batch has already paid for the waffle iron SWEET!

This evening was spent in a thrilling game of Phase 10 DICE! (I won hehe). We love playing Phase 10 and DJ got Phase 10 Dice in his stocking this year. If you haven't played either of these you must they are a blast and a lot of family fun!

Now to finish up writting the to do list for tomorrow and head off to bed!

A recipe for today. This comes from one of my FAVORITE cookbooks Not Just Beans

2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 T sugar
1/2 c oil or melted butter
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 2/3 c milk

Mix all ingredients do not overmix. Bake in waffle iron and enjoy! These freeze very well also!
