I wanted bread. Bad. We have gone two weeks so far without spending one penny on food (thanks to gift cards, my parents’ pantry, dressing up as cows and friends with awesome restaurant hook-ups) and so I was not about to break my streak by going to the store to buy some. The only other problem was that we are all out of sugar and Billy said that my idea to put my swedish fish in the food processor to grind up into sugar wouldn’t work. I found a recipe with four ingredients: water, flour, yeast and salt.
I went on to eat 1/3 of the loaf one piece at a time, topped with strawberry jam because that would just be wrong to eat something with ZERO sugar in it. I used this recipe and it was really good.
As we were coming up with things to do last night we remembered that my mom had gotten us the Netflix disc for White Collar (still trying to catch up to the current season) so we went over there to eat random food and grab the disk. Snap peas dipped into salsa and turkey.
Followed by a grape party at the counter with my favorite people.
My mom knew that we would be coming over to get the disc from them at some point yesterday and so she had a beautiful piece of carrot cake (Utahns, it is from Magelby’s) waiting for us. We had a few bites but we are saving the rest for this morning’s bfast because we already had dessert planned.
Gift card success! In case you were wondering… Cookie dough, gummy bears, marshmallows and graham crackers do taste good together. People probably see my cup and think a 4 year old made it.
I really wanted to take our ice cream home so that we could eat it while watching our show but I got very stressed about it melting. Billy’s engineer mind came up with the idea to turn the ac up full blast and hold them in front of the vents. My arms are now sore from holding them in that position but I will do anything to ensure the right temperature for my ice cream.
Our goal was to go through one disk of White Collar between Saturday and Sunday so that we could mail the Netflix disk back Monday morning and get the next one asap. I am proud to report that we beat our own goal and finished the whole disk last night. Good thing we can hook up our computer to the tv because we sold our DVD player.
My new set-up is above. The couch is no longer even comfortable. I have to either be standing, walking, running or laying completely flat to feel normal. One pillow for head and one pillow for my legs.
