Gratitude Addendum

Last night, I cooked. Shocking, isn't it? After all, George does most of the actual cooking around here. I just reheat.

Anyway, I made a fabulous dinner: homemade boursin cheese on toasted baguette appetizer, broiled salmon, mashed potatoes, broccoli. In the middle of cooking, I started to feel sick and by the time I fixed everyone's plates, all I wanted was to go upstairs and curl up in the fetal position, which I did.

A little while later, Jack came to check on me. He can't stand for me to nap or be in bed when everyone is up. I had him fetch his school book so he could read to me, and then George joined us and said a little dramatically, "I guess I'll have to make my own sandwich for tomorrow." I still felt crummy but as Jack wasn't going to leave me alone, we went downstairs...where I saw a totally clean kitchen. AWESOME!

So yesterday, I was grateful that George cleaned the very messy kitchen and made his own sandwich. And today, I am grateful that I feel much better and have his left-overs from the weekend so I don't have to cook again for the rest of the week.

Which is a good thing because, clearly, cooking makes me sick.


  1. that sounds yummy, even that cheese thing i've never heard of LOL do you kids eat salmon without much fuss? mine love it, but my other mom friends go "what, they eat that?"

  2. You have it all organised! Reminds me of another friend who "doesn't cook"! :)

  3. You were looking for clean scrapbooking pages. Have you seen the ones at http://scraprendezvous.blogspot.com/ ? Love their work.

  4. DANG!! I've got to try the "getting sick while cooking" gig...
    Wait...that would mean that my guys would just keep bugging me as to what was for dinner...and would survive on cold cereal until I was up and around again. snort

  5. AIIIEEEEEE!!!! Janet, thanks so much. That blog is amazing for CAS scrapping. Big, bid hugs of gratitude to you!

  6. Glad you are feeling better, but I think it would be best if you didn't try cooking again any time soon, it is obviously a hazard to your health. It sounds like a great meal that you created but missed out on.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
