So how's your day been?

Good I hope. Let me say that this has been one LONG day. Don't know why...just long. I'm seriously thinking about skipping choir tonight and just staying home, but I know that going will be a great way to end this day.

Don't get me wrong, today has not been bad, just long. School with the girls seemed to take forever, and they were watching that clock like you would not believe. The schools here are out half day today and one of our neighbors is hanging out with us until her mom and dad can get home from work. Right now, they are playing games and finishing up their snack.

Oh The snack. Emma asked me this morning if we could make homemade "pigs in a white blanket". Don't ask me where she got "white" blanket I don't know. So that is what we made for snack today. All homemade. Are you impressed? Well don't be....

It seems that the mother in this house left a knife on the cookie sheet when she placed it in the oven. That knife had a plastic handle. It was 13 minutes before that mother realized something was smelling funny.

Fortunately, it was just smelling and not melting....yet. Stupid knife.

Since Chad rarely reads my blog I'm not too worried about him finding out. And if he does...he'll just shake his head and laugh...this is nothing. Besides, he knows that if he makes fun of my culinary skills too much I'll go back to cooking the way I did when we were first married. Steak Ums and Hamburger Helper. Good times I tell you good times.

I joke about the hamburger helper thing. There is no way my girls are growing up and saying "My mom sure could work a box of dried pasta and a few spices." Now I'm hungry and my room full of little girls have destroyed our "homemade pigs in a white blanket" so I'm off to have an apple or something healthy. Maybe my smelly knife has cooled off enough for me to survey the damage. :)

Do you think the man will notice if I just slide it back into the knife block???

If it is a SMELLY knife I bet the first question out of his mouth will be 'What is that smell?' Then you will have to confess, girlfriend.

Or better yet, the girls will 'confess' for you!!

Hope you have a good evening.

A knife? A measley knife? That's the worst kitchen catastrophe you could manage? You really should come here and let me teach you how to do some real culinary damage! I am still without a microwave, by the way ;-(

If that was my kids... they would be laughing the whole time they were relaying the story to "Dad" about mommy baking the knife. Loved hearing about it and glad I am not the only one who does such humurous things in the kitchen. -Blessings, Laurie

ok - so mom confessed her cooking "adventure" before I had even put my stuff down when I came in from work yesterday. The girls didn't have to tell me.

And though there may be things that I don't notice... the plastic handle on one of the steak knives completely melted in half - I would have noticed. Not right away mind you - but I'm sure the girls would have made sure that this was the knife that I received the next time I went to cut the cooked flesh of cattle... :)

Love you.

Thanks for helping me on the Bible. When you started studying; what verse, book etc... did you start with. Thanks for all the encouragement.

LOL... thanks for the snippet into your life. :) Loved it! Thankfully, my culinary skills have improved through the years as well. I'm sure hubby's grateful as well. :)

Fran said...

Yep. Stupid knife. Stupid snack. And, I'm allowed to say that. :)

I'm praying for you tonight as I go to bed. I am asking God to give you a glorious Friday filled with much joy and much love and much patience.

You are one of my bestest BFF's right here in blogworld and I'd be there in a heartbeat if I could. word verification is sillies.

Hi Steph! I am so glad that I am not the only one that does that kind of stuff from time to time!

After reading Fran's blog today I am totally lovin' the stupid stuff. You girls crack me up and I would love to be able to see you all again sometime.
I will keep praying for you. I don't think that there will ever be a time that I don't pray for my bloggy friends.

Love ya,
