This is me. Having coffee and chatting with you, because it's been a few weeks since my last post (sorry about that, by the way!). It's spring here and with that came full blown allergic mess. I had the worse cough and all I did was sit around and drink tea. I felt completely fine except for the breathing part. . . that was hard. So, I didn't function for about a week. . . I kept the kids alive. . . that's really all that mattered. And so, once I did feel better, my house was a complete disaster! So, I spent last week digging myself out of the mess that had established itself during my state of ick. So, now, here I am trying to get back into the swing of things and get things blogged. I have a long list now of things to share with you. So, here's some things that have been on my mind.
I attempted macarons today. This was my second attempt. . . this time chocolate. They didn't quite come out right, but they taste wonderful. The ones I made before Christmas were almost perfect. I should find that recipe and try again with those. These ones are chocolate with a chocolate buttercream. So.Very.Delicious. I normally like the look (and taste) of ganache, but I was out of heavy whipping cream, and really wasn't in the mood to run to the store.
Have you heard of Ello glass bottles? I have a few and they are amazing. But, I am really more of a straw and lid kind of girl, becuase it's a whole lot easier to drink as I am walking around the house (you really don't want to see me drink and walk at the same time. . . it's not pretty!). I got super excited when I saw that they had finally came out with a straw bottle (I find them at Target. . . because I kind of live there. . . ha ha ha). It's definitely not perfect, but it works just for at home. The lid is not super secure, so if you like to toss it in your bag. . . probably not a great idea. I keep mine on my kitchen counter so when I walk by, I can drink. I am horrible at drinking water and this helps me. . . especially when I put fruit in it.
Target (seriously. . . I may have a problem!) started carrying Ben & Jerry's dairy free ice cream and it's delicious. I was kind of dissapointed, because they use chocolate with soy, so Weston can't partake. . . but more for me! It is really good!
And finally, we started a new study this week and it's written by my friend Dorina! I am looking forward to seeing and understanding the Glory of God better.
Okay, so now that I have chatted your ear off, I am going to go and get dinner ready. . .
