1. I realized that in two weeks I would be working 4 days a week, as opposed to two days a week last year, and no days of week all summer. I then realized that dinner would be getting a little more difficult, so I did an impromptu freezer meal cooking afternoon. I made chicken pot pie filling, marinated steaks (which I can also add to stir fry dishes, and teriyaki chicken. I feel more prepared to start school. Yay!
2. The incredible Strawberry-Lime Cream Cake that I made for Scarlett's birthday yielded a bit too much fillings, so instead of eating them by the spoonfuls (which I did plenty of), I made it into ice cream. Strawberry-Lime Ice Cream. It's very, very good. I would make the fillings just for the ice cream, but the cake was too good to pass up. It's a vicious circle of summer goodness.
3. I finally made some of the peach ice cream that I posted about last year. Same goodness, different summer flavor. Don't hate. Just come over with a spoon.
4. We are off to see The Fox and the Hound at our church this evening. I saw this in the movie theater when it first came out with my cousin Sam. We sat in the very front row. I had my own box of candy. Dots, I think. We got a box of Shrinky Dinks after the movie and my other cousin Nick lit a pot holder on fire trying to get them out of the oven. It's funny the things I remember from childhood!
