I also got to spend some time this morning with a friend who not only listened but offered some well timed advice. Every so often I need the reminder that 1) I am only one person and 2) my expectations of myself should not be the same as my expectations of other people because that is grossly unfair. And as Pete the Cat would say "It's All Good"
In other news, we're not even going to talk about another Tigers disaster (it's quarter 'til eight right now and I have yet to decide if I"m going to actually watch tonight's game or not I'm so frustrated). But Happy National Liqueur Day. Last night I made some homemade coffee liqueur which Kayla and I used to make some chocolate coffee liqueur cookies. It's also National Kraut Sandwich week and we had turkey ruebens for dinner. Well, a bit of a twist on a turkey rueben as my recipe substituted mayo and hot sauce for the thousand island dressing and provolone for swiss as my kiddos don't like it. The result was a sandwich which everyone LOVED - Noah even said it made him like sauerkraut. I love easy dinners...
Busy day tomorrow with MOPS and Family Fun Night at Beechview in addition to celebrating prunes and pasta! (And I'm REALLY hoping a Tigers win) Until then...
Mikayla playing with her princesses this morning
My favorite kitchen helper
Waiting patiently for her turn to stir when the mixer is done
Our chocolate coffee liqueur cookies ready for the oven
In the meantime, we started work on an old fashioned prune cake
And some pasta e fagoli soup
The cookies made it!
One of my friends asked to be 'adopted' for National Liqueur Day so I put her together a care package :)
Happy National Kraut Sandwich Week
My favorite use of my homemade coffee liqueur - White Russians!
