While the cats are away, the mice will play!

OR… MOUSE in this case!!!! Tyler has been off developing youth for the past week and I have been ridin’ solo! Well, of course I have plenty of company with the cats- and lovely, lovely friends that come to visit!

During this time I have been trying to slowly come out of my cooking coma, which was induced by having to make EVERY* SINGLE* ITEM* that we eat from scratch for the past year. Having to schedule in AT least an hour for making something everyday sometimes feels like strapping my sweatband on with about 100 pounds in weights- in the end, it’ll be good, and the sweatband looks pretty fab, buttttt THOSE DARN WEIGHTS!!!! How did the pioneer SLASH do the Moroccan women do it? WOOF! I do not know…. anyway…. like I said, coming out of the coma! Pizza has definitely been a staple for us, but I decided to put a little pizazz into the regularity tonight…
