I tried to mark a couple of things off my to-do list yesterday. 

One of those things was a nap. 

I'm happy to report that was very successful and definitely crossed off the list.

The other things I tried to do were:

1)  Make the sweet and spicy nuts

2)  Make the pumpkin bread

3)  Make the Pioneer Woman's Macaroni and Cheese.

While Phil was skyping with his parents, I tried to do all three.

1)  Apparently the recipe I have calls for plain yogurt and I had plain greek yogurt.  I guess the difference is SO HUGE that it didn't work.  I ended up curtling the yogurt.  It was nasty.  And I tried it twice.  Curtled it twice.  No picture for you.  You're welcome.

2)  The pumpkin bread needs 4 eggs.  I had 1 and it was needed for the macaroni and cheese.  I failed before I started.

3) My one triumph.

And Phil said it was definitely the one to get right.  I made the whole recipe, but froze half of it.  That way, I can pretend like the pound of grated cheese that went into it really isn't that bad.

I know what you're thinking... that doesn't look like a lot of food.  It wasn't.  I was starving 30 minutes later when we were at the store buying PLAIN (non-greek) yogurt and a carton of eggs.  Which explains why we also bought a pint of mint chocolate chip gelato as well.

Gluttony feels like my friend.
