You might have noticed we haven't posted much this week. There's a simple explanation. It's spring break and...
We packed Miranda off to Los Angeles.
She performed on the Blues Brothers Stage at Universal Studios Hollywood, met the cast of Disney's Sunny with a Chance, and bought some "really cute outfits" at Varga. I'm not sure we'll ever get her to come home!
The "Littles" (I guess we better stop calling them that before they start high school!) are spending the week with Grammy and Dampa...
So that leaves Jason and I, alone in the house with Ruby.
Well, if by party you mean
Getting up at 3:45 a.m. Monday to host Morning Edition and coming home to ...
eight loads of laundry.
Or spending the rest of the week ...
weeding the garden (or what will hopefully one day qualify as a garden!).
painting (bedroom). And...
more painting (family room windows, baseboards, door trim).
Then yes... we are
Not much to report on the food front. Yes, we've been eating. Vegetarian tacos, eggs & hashbrowns, bangers and oven fries. Nothing spectacular. Just food to fuel us through this massive work-cation of ours!
We are planning to make a real meal Thursday, in honor of St. Paddy. Corn Beef and Cabbage sounds good. But perhaps a little cliche?! Could do Irish Stew, 'cept we don't eat lamb. Dublin Coddle sounds interesting. All of the recipes we find a very meat-centric. Aren't there any vegetarians in Ireland?
Mmmm.... maybe some Potato and Leek Soup
with a side of Colcannon Potatoes and Cabbage
Jason and I may have to put down the paint brushes long enough to arm-wrestle on the cabbage-v-beef thing.
Are you planning anything special for St. Patrick's Day? Sticking with something traditional or mixing it up a bit? We'd love to hear what you've got planned!
