Just so you know, I broke out the high heeled black boots. They are my power shoes. Always. In fact, I'm wearing ALL power clothes today. I'm going to court with one of my clients this afternoon and that always kind of intimidates me. The gravity of the proceedings. So I'm wearing the things that make me feel intimidating myself. So take THAT, cute lawyer and domineering judge. You do not scare me!
I pretty much spent my weekend at the farm with Cowgirl. Her husband is gone hunting with Munchkin Number 1, so in order for her to get out and about, it takes quite a bit of work because she has to bring everyone along. Instead, we just go to her. Plus, she has a huge fireplace and the family room is SO sunny on cold but clear days. I think I played play doh for a good three hours. And we are reading a book about animal spirits. We're mostly sure that I am a dove, Cowgirl is a bluejay, and Dirty Ben is a badger. And since the UFC fights were on Saturday night, we had a little party out there and I promptly fell asleep in front of the fire with Munchkin Number 3 on my chest. Cowgirl sent us both to bed. Hahahaha. It was kind of sweet though. Because Munchkin Number 2 woke up around 7:30 a.m. and then I heard the baby squawking, so I went in and got him and the three of us putzed around for a couple hours, cuddling on the couch for a bit, making breakfast and a bottle, reading a few books. Cowgirl told me later, "That was like the best morning sleep I've had since the baby was born." See what a good friend I am? Ha!
I have not been cooking much lately. I am having trouble switching gears to winter fare. I miss all my fresh produce straight from the garden. But I might be coming around. I made fajita chicken last night to cut into salads for my lunches. Hard boiled eggs for breakfasts, etc. Was therapeutic as always and I made homemade blue cheese dressing. I've always wanted to try that. A salad is not a salad without blue cheese dressing. It's just how my taste buds work. I was having a horrible time finding a bottled dressing with no high fructose corn syrup, so I googled a billion recipes and made up my own. It is the best blue cheese dressing I've ever had.
1/2 c. blue cheese crumbles
6 oz. mayonnaise (I used the real kind)
1 T worchestershire sauce
1 T. dijon mustard
1 T. lemon juice
1 t. minced garlic
