Well, the microwave is up and working. It's so nice to have the hole in the wall patched and full of something functional. Also, I reclaimed a good bit of counter space. Yay! O said, "I love ya new microwave, Mom." Hah! And now it's box is a terrific fort/submarine for the boys. Jack installed two "sensors": "the one on the left helps me steer, and the one on the right...well, it comes in handy when I need to check the water pressure." Hilarious! Too bad their play then devolved into full-scale, code red, psychodrama whining and crying. Sigh. I'm about to get started on the shrimp Creole- as with most saucy dishes like it, time is its friend. So I'd like to get it cooked this morning and then let its flavors muddle together throughout the day.
I am also going to be baking a Lemon-Lime Cake as I received my first order for Em-i-lis Catering. So exciting!! I've added a number of items to the catering menu, and Em-i-lis Recipes is about to reach 100 yummy options. So check it out, get cooking, have fun in the kitch.
I'm off to get started!
