Aleena is like me. She loves to cook and experiment in the kitchen. That is also one way that she can show her love to her family...by making us something special. Last week I came home from work and she had made this pasta dish with a lemony olive oil sauce. It was quite interesting, and she had just made it up from the things she found in the kitchen. She was up to baking this afternoon so today's "something special" was problematic for mama.
Aleena was following a recipe in her junior cook book. She was to use cherry pie filling and refrigerated pie crusts to make little turnover things. They were very yummy...at least my 2 oldest boys thought so. And mama had a couple too many. uh-oh!
I should have been saving myself but I pigged out. Now I feel gross, but what can I do now other than beat myself up about it? And they were really yummy! LOL
I said I should have been saving myself...D told me over the weekend (or earlier maybe?) that he has found a little cabin for us to borrow for a couple of nights this week. It is our 15th wedding anniversary on Wednesday...and we will get to be ALONE in the mountains! YEAH!!!
I have no idea what we will be eating or how we will be spending our time. I probably should have saved a few flex points for that, huh? I ate them all this weekend so I'm just in trouble I guess. I will get by the best I can. And more than anything I will just enjoy this time away with my husband.
