Well, we're almost ready to head out to California, but it seems the closer it gets, the more I realize I have some seriously serious stuff left to do before we can go anywhere.
*Like pay bills. Not too many, thank goodness, because I've paid most of them ahead and only need to make token payments...
But at least someone will miss me.
I have managed to get the cats food organized, and even went to the trouble to buy plastic plates for their feeds... so the sitter can just throw them away. But now the thought of leaving my babies for 3 whole weeks, has me all teary.

See, I've always loved to cook and bake, but with this tiny little piece of crappola Easy-Bake oven I have, as well as only one burner working out of two... well, I just lost interest in serious cooking.
Because it was too hard.
So we've relied on the crock pot, barbecue or the microwave for far too long, and I seriously miss cooking.
I really do.
So now that I'm on vacation for five lovely, lovely long weeks, ( just in case you missed that bit, I'll say it again....
I'm on vacation for five lovely, lovely long weeks!!!)
my head is simply spinning with recipes.
Especially my favorites.
Stuff like Lasagna... clam chowder with green onion cakes... pot roast with all the trimmings... cornbread... Denver omelets... ham and biscuits with red eye gravy... po'boys... chili rellanos... waffles, topped with walnuts and maple syrup... Southern Fried chicken (yard bird to y'all), turnip greens and cornbread...even Josh's favorite TV watching snack - hot buttered Cheerios.
It's ALL good!
Well, not necessarily all good for you, but hey... how often do I get the chance to cook for my little family?
So all bets are off, as far as I'm concerned!
Plus, I've got a list of favorite recipes that I've learned to love, that I haven't had the chance to try out on them yet... Salads and soups ... casseroles and roasts... desserts that are gonna knock their socks off...
I'm gonna be cooking my sweet little pea-pickin' heart out!
That is, in between the stuff that's on my 'want' list.
Like Taco Bell, and Denny's breakfasts, Der Weinerschnitzel and cheeseburgers on the grill...
Ahhh...Let the good times roll!
And I'll just roll along with it...
