Here is a picture for you... do you think N. slept hard?

Well, last night we had Crockpot Pea Soup and homemade wheat bread. Yum!

Okay, I just looked on Vegweb where I thought I got the Pea Soup recipe, but I don't seem to be able to find it. The recipe sort of makes me feel all tricksy when I make it because basically you add tsp or T of every spice in your cupboard and voila! A tasty soup is born. Seriously, it has cumin, oregano, basil, tarragon, thyme, dill, celery powder, onion and garlic powder, parsley, mustard... and those are just what I can remember off the top of my head. Soon I will start posting recipes.

The cheeze sauce I use is here

Yesterday after reading the reviews on Amazon about how, yes, indeed, Sword of Shannara sucks, and how closely it parallels LOTR I said to myself, self, if they go into that mountain and the Gandalf clone struggles with the enemy and they fall into a pit clutching one another, I'm going to quit. Well, guess what happened?

So I started to read Ella, Enchanted and finished it last night. Yes it was in the children's section, and yes I do feel rather odd getting books there, but I console myself with the idea that I'm 'researching' good books for the girls when they get older. Ella, Enchanted was good! The ending was a little weird but maybe that's because I am so conditioned to Hollywood/Disney type endings- which I wish I weren't. I liked how she brought together all the little details at the end. Okay, I'm not writing a book report here, and that's how it's sounding, so suffice it to say, it was good.

No progress on the mitts, I almost started mentally trying to work out how I'd place the thumb but I must have been too foggy/interrupted by a teething child to get very far.
