It’s time to check in on a Friday with some links and pictures. How are my Friday fans? What have you been cooking? It’s summer time, so the grill has been on for awhile now. I’ve even grilled on chilly days because sometimes I just really want grilled food. Last summer I tried fancier recipes, but this summer I’ve been sticking more with the basics, like hot dogs, hamburgers, steak, marinated chicken, and fish. There is enough other stuff going on (ahem, baby Chiplet) that I try not to be too fussy. I look at the grill as a fast way to get a meal going. It takes about as long as the oven to preheat but cooks the food faster, most of the time.
We are in the stage of baby-time when I have lots of recipes I want to make but not much time to make them since the baby is a bit picky with his sleep. So, read ahead to see some food I would like to make as well as some pictures of my two non-napping sons.
Let me preface this by saying I am writing this before the Chiplet has arrived, and you should realize that his pictures aren’t here only because he isn’t here yet while I am writing this. I will also have to figure out how to make a different header for him since I don’t even remember how I made the one for the Fudgelet–oops!
I haven’t shared any favorites for awhile, and it’s about time I do…to be honest, I’ve been a bit busy the last few months and haven’t had much internet browsing time. The only browsing has been to make some food for dinner that week, and that’s it. I will admit that I’ve been following lots of makeup videos and pages though, so that has stolen some of my time. I can’t help it; I am attracted to pretty things in all forms.
Pardon me while I take a little time off for the holiday weekend…as of now, I plan to have a post about our Maryland visit with Christmas pictures/etc… but otherwise I might save the rest of the posts for…dare I say it? 2017!
It has been WAY too long since I did one of these posts. Almost 3 months! Ouch. I kept thinking I had some on the schedule, but apparently not. I’ve also been trying to keep up with all of the new recipes I’ve been making, but still falling behind on that, too. I just can’t get ahead, and I guess that’s okay. At least I have managed to keep blogging for over 2 years post baby. That makes me proud.
As I type this, it is barely after 10 pm and I am exhausted. The Fudgelet has not slept well ALL WEEK. Naps have been so-so, so I have been trying to get some naps in when he sleeps, but it’s still not enough. It’s all of the bad stuff…he has gone to bed late, woken up a lot, and gets up early (bad for naps, and not enough total sleep for either of us). Ugh ugh. I hope we are moving on from this phase soon. Usually he gives me at least one decent night a week, but not a one. Maybe he is gearing up with a couple weeks of bad sleep followed by AMAZING sleep forever and ever and ever? A mom can dream. Anyway…excuse any sleep-deprived nonsense. Thanks for stopping by, as always 🙂
