We have spent the whole day in the house. Anyone who knows me knows that this is my personal nightmare! But we’ve had an ok day… puzzles, play doh, painting, bubble bath, cooking and baking. I’ve cooked a ton and done some cleaning. Now it’s only 6:30pm and I’m just wondering how we survived this day!
My best cooking to date: delicious and simple sweet potato pasta sauce, which seriously tastes like cheese sauce but has no cheese! (Here is the link to the recipe.) I couldn’t believe how good it was, for some reason I thought anything made from sweet potato would just be blah, since I don’t really like sweet potatoes. But it’s amazing! I also made spinach and potato fritters, which is a little more time intensive but also very good. (Here is the recipe for that one.)
Yesterday we had a blizzard, but that didn’t stop me from driving 50 miles both ways to swimming and meeting with my sister to take the girls to get their annual photo with Santa. I spent many, many hours on the snowy roads, driving like 25mph the whole way there and back, and boy am I ready to be in San Francisco! Fuck this snow. Usually I like snow but I’m just not in the mood this year. I just need to get where I’m going and it would be nice to do that without freezing my ass off, not being able to see out of the windshield, and sliding all over slippery roads. I’ll enjoy the snow on the ground once the roads are cleared off.
