So how did I enjoy the first official morning of vacation? My five year old friend was up at 6:55. Once I was awake there was no going back. He is the hungriest friend one could have. Yesterday he helped me make two dozen banana muffins http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Banana-Oat-Muffins/. I doubled the recipe, and they are good. I kept twelve for this week and froze twelve for quick breakfasts or last minutes snacks next week. After eating his muffin he was still quite hungry. I made us scrambled eggs. While I was making these my other friend woke up. Instead of adding another egg I just split it all between the three of us (frugal try) and it worked. It was only one egg a piece, but I think that is probably enough. Less than I usually would cook, but enough for breakfast.
Now I sit on the couch as the kids watch television in their matching pajamas. So cute! Last night I turned the turkey breast from Christmas into turkey soup. It was pretty successful with everyone except "she who is never quite happy with dinner". Such a good girl, but her Christmas dinner was pineapple, cranberry sauce, and a roll. I like such a wide variety of food that it is hard for me to empathize with her. My husband is much more particular, so he does feel for her a bit more than I do. Also, since I do the cooking I get
sort of VERY ticked off at the constant complaints. We also had ham on Christmas day, so tonight's dinner is going to be some sort of repurposed ham with mashed potato pancakes. I have never made them, but I thought if I fried them crispy they may get eaten. I really don't think so, but I am going to give it a try.
