Have (tiny) kitchen, Will cook.

I’m sitting here on the couch on a Friday morning, and I’m happy for lots of reasons. It’s almost the weekend, it’s a great Fall day, I’m feeling better after being a little under the weather yesterday, and I woke up planning my run for today. Plus the fact that I got a nice kiss […]

Ice Cream Bread: My first “flop.”

I’m proud to say that I’m being the best little housewife I can be, despite being frustrated about still not having a job. Yes, I’m sometimes bored, and yes, I sometimes get discouraged, (I got rejected for another job yesterday) but I’m turning into quite the little chef. (P.S. I love “my” knives (Wyatt was the one […]

So I reheated the rice and ripped off a few layers from a head of […]

So tonight for dinner, it was hamburger. For sure. But, I waited to go to the grocery store until after Wyatt got home so he could […]

After Dinner Entertainment

Since I’m still not working, I’ve been doing my best to be the very best housewife I can be. So usually, I have dinner almost ready or waiting when Wyatt gets home from work at 5:30. But the last two nights, I’ve done a lot more in-depth meals. So Wyatt had to help when he got […]

Making Wyatt Eat His Vegetables

I want to preface this post by saying that I usually do my best to make foods that I know Wyatt will like. For instance, when I make chili, I leave out the onions and peppers. And when I make scrambled eggs, I add cheese. And when I make brownies, well, I make a lot […]
