A very quiet weekend, not much fun to report, actually. Damn! And no cooking either! Didn’t feel much like it, in fact, I’m going to dial down the number of full-on dinners I make each week – it’s just not moderate enough, for me. I do much better consumption-wise if I just have a hearty snack for din, earlier in the evening when I’m hungriest. Trying to hold out to eat at 7 p.m. kills me, I’ve been trying to do it since John and I got married – nice for John, not so nice for me. I basically end up eating twice because as you might guess, I’m not the sort to sit plateless with others while they happily devour whatever tasties I’ve prepared for them. I’m neither disciplined nor magnanimous enough for such charity, ha. I figure I’ll cook on the days both kids are here and once in awhile on the nights John and I are alone – those are my most experimental nights, when I really get the creative juices flowing. I’ll definitely keep posting recipes for the blog, just not daily. Keep checking back!

And get this, I completely spaced picking up my CSA veggie share on Friday! Man, someone has moved out of the summer mode… Dorkin’ out, completely. I had to buy some lettuce at the store today for the first time in months.

Hope you had a good weekend!

    A: I think I'm finding it impossible! Or a balancing act that requires a bit of tweaking at this moment... Darn.

    Q: Is it not impossible to be passionate and driven about one's interests AND be the kind of mom and wife one's family wants AND keep one's joy of life and sanity intact?
