While I don't have pretty pictures like she does, this has been a cooking weekend. Spring classes start January 19 (I work in US higher education, for any of my new friends), and since I run part of the IT support department, our job really ramps up this week in preparation for that start of classes.
*And* the hubby is finally getting to the "this kitchen needs a new sink" project. He's at the point where his multiple illnesses have slowed him down that what for 2 healthy guys would be a one day project, it's mostly him (with me as the night laborer) and he's planning on 3 days... so that means being without a kitchen sink for at least 3 days. It'll be worth it, so I've already planned ahead.
There's a pot of chili already made, and the chicken stew/soup is in process... I have a 'cabbage roll casserole' started enough that I may or may not throw that together... (I'll take "things you can heat in the microwave and eat in throw-away bowls for $500, Alex") This makes the night time meals easier and the clean-up a no brainer... and I can take the chicken thing for lunch if I put the casserole together. Hmm... I guess I've talked myself into it.
In writing news, I finished my Snape Fest story (only a week late) and sent that off to the mods. I haven't fully decided if I want to work on my apocalypse_kree story -- mostly because while I have a bunny, I have yet to really start on my Reverse Bang story *and* I have a picfor1000 story due the end of the month also... but since I have a small bunny for the Apocalypse Kree, I'm going to see if it comes together fast enough to keep moving on the other stories. *And* I have a kinda-huge romancingmcshep story that needs major work...
Oh. And I was teaching a winter online course and need to grade another dozen final exams and turn in grades tomorrow... Meep!
Phew. Okay, food first and then
::hugs to everyone on my flist::
