Gosh! My husband has a large family! I have to give that to him.
This weekend was really long… Thank God for Democracy Day… So long that I resumed work in my head on a Sunday.
It has its good and bad side… You don’t want to hear the bad side! Lemme, just tell you anyway. Remember I told you guys how much I
hate detest cooking, well I was subjected to a long weekend of cooking a full pot of stew and soup. And just when I was about patting myself at the back for attempting such ‘marathon’ cooking, I got a surprise visit from an Inlaw, then more and then more in-laws! In my mind, at first I was praying it would be a short visit… It didn’t look like it. Then I switched prayers to “God, please don’t let them be hungry”… Of course I knew that was definitely not going to happen. *sigh*
Then the most paralyzing of it all, my cousin called to tell me she was spending the long weekend with me. Let me just tell you that this my cousin has a bad history of eating…a lot too. Worse still, she absolutely ‘dies’ for my soup. So apart from eating the soup with ‘swallow’, she settled to lick a bowl of soup! That’s how all my effort went down the ‘drain’!
The long and short of it is that my soup and stew meant for the week…completely gone! So back to square one.
Looks like I have to confine myself to the four walls of that kitchen…again!! Drat!
