Woe is me.

My Microwave is broken. (I did not realize how often I use it.)
I need to buy a storage solution for Jacob's toys & books. (One for his bedroom & one for the living room.)
I need to purge some more fabric to make room for Jacob in the closet in his room. It is 100% shelved & I am hoping to clear 1 if not 2 shelves. I am hoping to end up with "Kits." Having all of the loose fabric contained on the shelving unit in my bedroom. Tall order, but I am going to start by taking some fabric to my sew-n-tell group this Sunday. Maybe even some kitties. (I am going to cut my 1/2 yards into fat quarters & hope that that eliminates some volume.)

My carrots worked out last night & Jacob ate some - he previously was not impressed with them. But he did not like the quinoa - at all. (The beef wasn't bad reheated with some fresh balsamic vinegar.)
More beef tonight - with carrots & egg noodles.
Salmon with spinach & feta tomorrow. - completely different flavor range.

Our microwave died 2 years ago and it took about 2 weeks before we had it replaced. I remember that I was totally lost without it!

The microwave is something new in our lives, but I don't even want to think of being without mine. My computer monitor died a couple of days ago, so I bought another one. That too is something that I don't want to be without. I couldn't read blogs or email for two whole days! Hope you can sell some of that fabric.

Such a funny boy. Just adorable.
The stash has a life of its own. It will not be denied.

I don't think I use my microwave a lot. It would be fun to have a no-microwave week just to see how I'd do without it.

A salmon recipe: Preheat the oven to somewhere between 350-400. Get a pan smoking hot, dry off the salmon, salt and pepper it, drizzle olive oil on it (not in the pan), and put Mr. Salmon in the pan. When it is a lovely brown on the bottom (just a couple minutes), flip it and put it in the oven for a few more minutes. You can see the done-ness in the sides, so take it out just before it gets to where you like it. Wa-La. Easy.
