As I write this, I have no working oven. I had someone come yesterday…and all they did was damage the screws that held the oven into the wall. So then I had to have a different person tackle the screws so that tomorrow the first person can come back and hopefully repair the oven. Because I really do miss it. I’ve been terribly sick all week with a cold and am finally getting better, which means I am finally up to more cooking. Like cakes. I luckily had some cake because I made it shortly before my cold and I couldn’t taste anything so just saved it. But I am running low and I also want to use the oven for other things, like dinner. I have a stove, a microwave, and a toaster, so I am not entirely without appliances, but the oven is making me sad. Fingers crossed it gets repaired, otherwise I will have to wait much longer if it needs to get replaced. In the meantime, I am sharing some recipes I wish I could make.
It has been a rough week plus here. I’m hoping by the time that this posts everything is back to normal. For now, though, I am still in the middle of it. We started the week with bad sleep, lots of bad behavior, and a fever that turned out to be nothing. Then the week ended with a virus for half of the family…did I mention this was with Easter? Sigh. And then just as that half of the family got better, another family member started with a different virus. Here I am worried and wondering when it will hit me. I mean, I can’t possibly dodge all of this, can I? I really hate seeing my boys sick and so sad. But let’s try to remember the happier moments with some pictures to transition back to our usual Friday Favorites content:
I know it is a day late, but I don’t have a new pie recipe to share for pi day. I didn’t want to let the day go by without saying anything, so I decided to do a day after post showing some fun pies I’ve seen. My fingers are crossed right now with the hope that I can make a dairy and/or nut pie for the family and then maybe share it soon. The Chiplet is having more tests done and I really really hope to have some good news. Either way, I will make something circular for us.
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.
