I promise that very soon, this page will return to a gluten-free, dairy-free, food blog! I’m up to my ears in unpacking, organizing, and running errands.
On Christmas morning I made a gorgeous batch of cinnamon rolls which I took a picture of and posted in my last blog entry. You can find the recipe for them here. What I didn’t post a picture of was the horridly overdone eggs that tasted like shellfish because they were cooked in the same pan I had steamed mussels and shrimp on Christmas Eve. They were really gross.
My husband said I should post a picture of them and that he thought I shouldn’t just always post pictures of recipes that have turned out perfectly in a perfect setting…that a little bit of mess and mistakes lend “reality” to my blog. No one wants to see overdone eggs that smell and taste like fish. No one. But I did understand his point.
Last night I unpacked the last box. I was so relieved, I can’t even tell you HOW relieved I was. However, once the packing afterglow wore off, I then realized I had a mess in almost every single room of the house.
So here’s a dose of “blog reality” and my chores for today:
A gazillion photographs that need to be framed and hung. Which is hard to do quickly because I keep getting pulled down memory lane.
A guest bedroom that needs organization, window treatments hung, and decorating completed.
Another room that we’ll use as a guest bedroom but will mostly be used as an exercise room and craft room. It has become the catch-all room with all kinds of things I haven’t had time to deal with. I keep walking in circles when I enter this room. So much stuff…we’ll definitely need some more shelving and storage. I found the Triscuit box nestled next to a pillow after our son left.
And lastly, this will be my final project today. My camera is malfunctioning…yet again. Thank goodness for Google. You can figure out how to fix almost anything. You may notice, it’s not very clean. I should give it a proper cleaning to remove all of the flour and sugar…but really, it will just return with the next recipe.
Wishing you a lovely and productive day!
