Hi everyone. Happy T day.
Today for T over a Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog, I am going back to the last weekend in October when it was both my husband's and my daughter's birthdays. My daughter (the birthday girl) and her husband came to visit for the weekend, so it was a busy one.
I spent much of that weekend in the kitchen. I was baking and making both a big birthday dinner (for my husband) and a big birthday breakfast (for my daughter) the next morning. The cooking part seemed to be less work than all the dishes and other kitchenware that needed either hand washing or a run through the dishwasher. ( I had to run the dishwasher 2 times each day that weekend.) Then that kitchenware had to be put away. And the counter seemed to need wiping constantly.
BUT I am NOT writing this as a complaint, I'm just explaining! It is always fun to sit around the table with a good meal, a glass of wine or a bottle of beer, and even a breakfast mimosa, and have lots of good conversations with people you love. By that point, all the preparation is done, and without the time in the kitchen, the meal wouldn't be the same.
For T today, let me first offer you a birthday cupcake. The good news is that since these are photos they have zero calories and zero sugar. Smile.
You have a choice.
