Victory is MINE!

Go to the grocery (my nemesis) to procure needed items off of my dinner menu list.....CHECK!

(Stone called this afternoon to inform me he needed me to make a list of 4 dinners to have this week so we could go to the store tonight...but really so he wouldn't starve/be forced to eat a cheese quesadilla every night)

Clean BOTH bathrooms......CHECK!

(Absolutely hate doing it, but once it is done I feel great about what I have accomplished.)

Try out a new recipe for dinner: Creamy Pesto Gnocchi Green Beans and Ricotta .....CHECK!

* I didn't follow the directions to a "T"....I mixed everything together in the pot with the gnocchi, pesto & cream (also sprinkled a bit of parmesan on top).

**If I ever make this again I might add cherry tomatoes for a pop of color and burst-o-favor.

(OH, and yes. That is a bagel you see on my plate....Take a plain bagel, add a bit of butter, a dusting of garlic powder, a dash of italian seasoning, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, pop it in the oven at 450 until golden brown and VOILA! Nothing but goodness!....that's how we roll!)

Hopefully tonight will be the beginning of me getting back into my domestic goddess groove. I doubt it, but I can always hope!

PS: Check out the earrings I made on Saturday.

Pretty snazzy huh? If you would like to make a pair as well....you can go here or here to get your vintage cabochons (I'm sure there are other places but these are the two Etsy shops I have purchased from). Then head to your nearest craft store to pick up a package of earring posts & backs (might want to get "nickel-free"). All you have to do is slap a bit of seriously strong glue on the back of the posts and POOF! You have yourself a bitchin new set of earrings!

PPS: Yes, I wore my new apron (from Katie Jean) whilst cleaning/cooking....and blogging.

Very snazzy.

[He says, squirming slightly as he wonders if he is really the kind of man to rate earings]
