My kitchen is a MESS! The pot I fixed the chili in is still sitting on the stove … my immersion blender is standing up in a bean can … my crockpot is on the island … my food chopper is in a dirty bowl. (I thought about posting a picture of the mess, but I’m just too embarrassed to share that … but evidently I’m not too embarrassed to describe how messy it is – ha!) I made white chili for the fundraiser last night … my recipe doesn’t even take an hour to prepare, so I wanted to wait until later in the afternoon before I began it. I was sure that I had allowed plenty of time … yet I was scrambling to get the pot of chili into the crockpot to get there in time. No time to tidy up before we left nor this morning … and with a Pampered Chef party early this afternoon, it may be late this afternoon before I get that kitchen whipped into shape … just in time for dinner. Ha!
We have snow in our forecast for tomorrow (after a record high of 81 yesterday no less)!! Woo hoo! Of course, I won’t be up to see it … and from the looks of the temperatures, there won’t be any for me to see when I get up at 5:30.
Today I’m thankful for:
- Snow in the forecast
- A good time at the fundraiser - the highlight was when DSIL arrived with the 2 littlest Ts and T#4 ran to give me a hug
- Pumpkin pie bagel for breakfast this morning
- Good neighbors … I needed 2 tsp of cumin for my chili … and had only 1 tsp … sent DH next door to borrow a tsp of cumin
