Manmouth Monmouth - Same Difference...

I woke up warm and cozy this morning. Partially thanks to my down comforter, partially due to a hot water bottle and also a little because I slept in a sweatshirt. I really had no interest in getting out of bed. I read for a bit but when Z got up to get ready for school I figured I probably shouldn't be SUCH a bum so I got up too and found my way to the computer. Obviously nothing interesting had happened on Facebook and I hadn't even received any exciting e-mails.

I thought about what I could do today and decided that Wednesday is not too early to start cooking for Shabbos. It's 1:30 PM now and I'm pleased to say that 4 really cute challot are halfway through baking. I've also gotten a head start on the mini-quiches by grating the cheese (last night actually) and making the pie dough. I'm currently debating which project to tackle first - quiches or some muffins. I kind of really want muffins... Mmmm, muffins.

Today I'm supposed to organize the guest room. It seriously needs a super duper clean-up. Truth be told - if I don't organize it I have NO idea where 3 people are going to sleep Friday night. I guess I should probably do that.

Last night I wound up making calzones for dinner. Partly because I didn't want to use a ton of tomato sauce on pizza and also because I had one container of cottage cheese left over (from the ravioli making last week.) I'm glad I wasn't a lazy bum because they came out deliciously. Honestly - the best calzone filling is a combo of; cottage cheese, grated mozzarella, a bit of parmesan and some sliced veggies (we had onions, mushrooms and green peppers.) Yum. I felt like I was in a nursery rhyme when I marked my calzones with a 'L' and Z's with a 'Z' - on a funny note - he was excited to be able to tell which ones were his.

So - in conclusion, I've still got a room to organize, I need to finish my book (so that I can return it to the library tomorrow (when I go to the other side of town to mail a special birthday package) and I've got lots of cooking to do too.

Wish me luck!
