Recipe theme week. Not really a recipe, but a technique. Take ye ole hot dog. Ballpark is best, since they really plump when you cook them. No I don't want to know why. Please don't tell me why. We don't eat that many hot dogs, so they are kind of a rare summer "treat." Cut in all the right parts. Microwave for 45 seconds or so and . . . You have a hot dog person! :) The kids will absolutely love them. They were the highlight of Leland's birth weekend.
Smiles in my day:
- That I'm still my husband's go-to girl. I had his boss' birthday on our calendar. Hubs asked why? I told him that apparently I put it on there last year and transferred it on over. Everyone at work forgot, so I got the panicked "Make a cherry pie!" phone call. The man still needs me- not that he ever let on that he didn't.
- Searching for lightning bugs with K- and her getting so stinkin' excited.
- You know, I appreciate the man I married more and more everyday. We had a discussion at work today about how my one co-workers husband is pretty jealous of her having male friends. She is not permitted to hang around male friends and her husband would have a fit if he thought that she was talking with them on the phone. She admits that she feels the same about him. Hubs and I have never been that way. Most of the folks he works with are women. They've gone out for a bite after work and I don't mind. A friend and his two kids came over a few weeks ago and hung out for a few hours. Hubs didn't mind. I'm glad that we have that kind of relationship. Truly, neither one of us have ever had to worry about the other's faithfulness. That's a good thing.
- The budget deadline for Save Ohio Libraries has been extended. That is a wonderful thing! (They want to cut library funding by 50%, which would result in decreased programming, hours and the total loss of some libraries.)
