I’ve been feeling really “domestic” these days. I use quotations around the word “domestic” because well – I’m feeling my version of domestic which may or may not fit Webster’s description. It may be that my baby fever continues to sink in and I figure if I can’t work on being a nurturing mother, I might as well work on my housewife skills.
Can I please say how much I love the yummy recipes I find through other bloggers? Saturday night Steven had a few buddies over to watch the All-Star race so I decided to try a new recipe D.A.R. suggested. These lasagna roll-ups were to die for. At first Steven turned his nose up when I mentioned lasagna roll-ups for dinner and moments later began the questions that always come when I say I’m trying something new around our house….
Steven: Just where did you get this recipe?
Me: Oh you know – from a friend. She said her husband loved it.
Steven: What friend? (The smirk on his face anticipating my answer)
Me: (Not wanting to admit the truth) A.F.R.I.E.N.D.
Steven: How do you know this friend?
Me: A blogger friend – okay – a blogger friend.
Steven: (Sigh) Here we go again.
You see, while hubby enjoys reading my posts and appreciates that I have an outlet for my “feelings” – he sometimes just doesn’t get that I actually have friends through this crazy blogging world. So in his mind I was cooking dinner for two of his best friends based off the suggestion of a total stranger. Luckily the dinner was a SUCCESS! This recipe is relatively easy and completely worth taking the time. You must try it!
Yesterday to my dismay I realized that I bought way too many bananas last week and 5 were about to spoil. My savvy housewife skills kicked in and I decided to try from scratch banana bread for the first time. I googled a recipe and THIS is what I came up with. SUPER EASY! Seriously – why do all women thinking baking has to be time intensive and exhausting? This was a piece of cake and a huge hit with the hubby.
I think Steven has been pleasantly pleased with my sudden burst of domestic abilities. Now if I would just learn to fold my laundry as soon as it comes out of the dryer he just might put me up for Wife of the Year. Yeah…who am I kidding??
