Curses, Foiled Again

Let me just get this off my chest. I can't get video to upload, I can't get pictures to download. Your little peepers are doomed to a life of picture-less blather. Or at least until the bad techie karma leaves.

It kind of fits, though. This lack of computer savvy coincides with a houseful of sick little children. So it's not like I have tons of time to tweak pictures, find words, and add posts. My lap is being vied for at nearly every moment of the day, and I suspect that the weeks usual activities will be put on hold until this cold quits kicking their little tails.

However, there are those incredibly long naps that sick children are given to taking. And what do I plan to do with that time? Work in the kitchen!!! I am trying to 'cook ahead', doubling or tripling recipes and freezing things so that I can provide myself with a get out of jail free card on an evening when I am feeling particularly lazy.

I am also undertaking some baking experiments that make me smile, even if I don't like the results. I love to bake. It's better than cooking regular food, if you ask me, but alas I can't bake my way through meal time every day of the week. We used to have baking day, me and the kids...I am looking forward to implementing that wonderful time of fun and silliness into our routine again.

And there you have it. A lot of words that amount to nothingness to anyone besides me and my desire to blog, it being all therapeutic and all. I will tell you this, a little teaser: I have some cutie pictures of my kids on my iPhone (that I can't download yet) and some very embarrassing pictures of myself and another recent experiment that I just might post. So y'all remember me and my bad karma when you think about your desire for another Aubrey Antic, m-kay?

I always desire another Aubrey Antic. It makes me feel better about my own antics.

Hee. :-)

Hope the kiddos feel better soon.

Poor sick babies. Hope everyone feels better soon.

Any recipes you feel work particularly well to cook ahead and freeze? And that you would like to share? It ruins my feeling of industrious satisfaction when I defrost and cook a meal only to find it extremely unappetizing. I have about five that I try to keep in stock and would love to add to the rotation. I keep waiting for them to produce a freezer with "copy" and "paste" buttons so I will no longer have to cook, but can just keep creating meals from the original. No luck so far.
