Where’s my cape? Oh, never mind! Today was great! I got to sleep late, and Bela slept even later. Once I got up and moving, I decided to make some (turkey) bacon and eggs to entice Bela out of the bed. Fail! End result: she ate breakfast in bed. That usually doesn’t happen, but since she hurt her ankle, I let it slide.
Once her breakfast was taken care of and the dishes done, I was looking for something for myself. I had gone to bed last night thinking about my mom’s recipe for cassoulet. I thought it called for some ketchup, but I couldn’t remember for sure. After a quick phone call, I put everything (one can of white Northern beans, one can of drained carrots, four cut-up wieners and some ketchup) into the pot, “cooked” a few minutes and had an easy lunch. I have enough for two or three more meals. Just in case you’re interested, Mom said some garlic powder and onions can be added to the recipe.
Since I had conquered today’s meals, I was looking for something else….that’s when I found a box of cake mix in the cabinet. Hmmmm. Why not? I also noticed a small box of food coloring, so I added a few drops of color to the batter. 🙂
After the cake was done, Bela and I taste tested (for quality control purposes). I even managed to get some icing on a few pieces. Bela tried a piece before it was cooled! (I might have, too.) Lunch, check. Crazy cake, check. Popcorn and a movie? Sure, let’s do it!
I made Bela some popcorn, and we settled down to watch The Book of Life (again). What a wonderful day off.
