I found my domestic side this weekend.  I knew it was hidden in there somewhere.

I made Jenni's Split Pea Soup.  In all honesty, we didn't actually get to eat it last night.  I started it too late, so it wasn't quite done at dinner time.  I had the same problem the last time I made lentil soup in the crock-pot.  But the good news is that I have dinner all ready for tonight.  And it made the house smell REALLY good.

I made Danielle's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I took them to Canasta Night at my brother's house.  Between the four adults and three kids (because Jeffrey had a sleepover with his cousins), we managed to eat like 18 cookies.  They were G-O-O-D!  And I made them with whole wheat flour, so we can pretend like they are healthy.  :)

And I made my co-workers' salsa.

{This may be the crappiest Instagram picture ever.  I love all the crap in the background.}

Two of my coworkers make this wonderful smokey salsa and they usually bring in some jars for everyone to test out.  Give free feedback, basically.  So one of the coworkers gave some of us the recipe.  And enough tomatoes from his garden to make a double batch.  And the peppers.  And step by step instructions.  So basically he did everything but hold our hands through the process.

It turned out pretty well.  Not as smokey as the stuff my coworkers have made, but that's ok.  It is still delicious.  Serve them with some Juanita's and it is perfection.  :)

I also found a cuddle buddy and a nap while we had a little Harry Potter movie marathon.

{I was really tired.  And so was Cotton}

All in all, it was quite a nice weekend.  I'm not sure I'm ready for the hustle of another week.  But I'd better be.


  1. Wow you went on a domesticated roll! That smoked salsa sounds really good. I've made three batches of pumpkin chip cookies and I still want more. You have a great cuddle buddy. Sweet picture.

  2. The only thing I made this weekend was a sandwich. You win.

  5. You're killing it! That salsa sounds SO good!

  6. Looks like I had the same idea this weekend :-) made fresh chicory soup, pecan cookies with cinnamon, zucchini bread with herbes de provence and penne alla napolitana, your food looks equally good :-)

    And just love the way Cotton rests his little head on your leg, such a great feeling to have them close, in my case the dog's been replaced with a little girl, but equally cute

    have a great week!
