Teacher AND Housewife

With Max in school full time, I find myself in another role--that of a housewife. Last year, I was spoiled by anyone's standards: he took care of all the cooking and cleaning and laundry. This year is a different story...this weekend, I cooked TWO meals! I haven't cooked a meal, since, gosh, I can't even remember. My first turned out great: a fritatta recipe I found on the internet. The second meal went fine but I had to have some help seasoning the turkey burger. I had lots of time to be a housewife over the weekend. Not so much during the week, though... Today I'm dead tired; Max is tired and a little stressed and a little under the weather. We both got home around six tonight (one car, remember?) and we both looked at each other wondering who would cook dinner? :) We are learning the whole "give-and-take" thing again....

On the school front, week two is going well so far. We started our apple unit today by making "apple smiles" with round apple slices, peanut butter, and raisins. The kids loved it; it was really yummy; and I got them to say enough sentences about the activity so that it became a decent story :). I was actually surprised that no one turned up their noses at the raisins--I would have at their age!

Hey, daughter-in-law, I can relate. Your mother-in-law (that law stuff sounds scary...I wish we were just mom and dad) anyway. M.i.l. went back to work full time and we are "learning" roles as well. Maybe we can do the apple-raisin thing for supper sometime.

you need a child to cook your meals for you...hint, hint. Okay so I guess it couldn't cook riiighht away, but soon enough you would have your own personal servant.

I turn up my nose at your raisins.

My advise is to suddenly develop a taste for grilled foods--most men just see the fire and their hormones take over!
Works at our house!

Go to Vons, get the Select Eating Right dinners and get used to microwave cooking. Crock pot dinners work well, too. They cook while you're gone and ready to eat when you arrive home!
