Operation: Clean Out the Kitchen

I've been on a mission to get the kitchen "ready for winter" and I've been frantically cooking to get rid of all the crap in the pantry. I've also wanted to make more meals on the weekend so we can take for our lunches during the week and not eat cold sandwiches everyday.

I started out Sunday and invited my grandparents over for breakfast (they will eat anything) and served them pancakes and oatmeal. :) For lunch I made 3lbs of sloppy joe (so E can reheat and make sandwiches for dinner the remainder of the week) and I also made sour cream potatoes, peas, green beans, and corn. All of the vegetables came from little packages in the freezer that were never enough to make for both of us, so just got shoved to the back. I also put pot roast, carrots, and potatoes in the crock pot and let it cook all day on Sunday. For dinner Sunday, I made baked spaghetti and garlic bread. I also made two loaves of cinnamon bread. I'm thinking I'll make another loaf tonight and put applesauce in it to make apple-cinnamon bread. :) I also have some chicken thawed in the fridge and some shake and bake bbq glaze that I think I'll cook for E tonight and put in the fridge for leftovers. And I have biscuits to make Monkey Bread. I'll make that tonight so we can eat it during "Good Morning Miami." So am I a cooking fool or what? :)

Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed?

Well, Friday evening I went after my job to babysit. I was extremely tired and was yawning when I put the little boys pajamas on him. He is about 3 and adores Erich so he says to me:

"Suzanne, when you go home I want you to promise me that you and Erich will take a nap."

Me: "Okay."

Him: "Is the baby in your tummy sleeping?"

Me: "Yes she is I believe."

**pauses and thinks for a minute**

Him: "Is there a bed in there?"

Me: (holding back laughter) "No, not a bed. She is sleeping in a warm bubble of water."

Him: "oh. when is she coming out again?"

Me: "remember how we talked about how she would come after xmas and santa claus?"

Him: "yeah." **pauses** " Will she still be in the water?" :)
