Thursday Mishaps

I shouldn't use the breadmaker on Thursdays.

Tommy has class Thursday evenings at 6:15pm. This means dinner needs to be ready pretty close to when he gets home from work.

Last week I remembered he had class. I wanted to make ham and pineapple pizza with homemade dough. I use the breadmaker's dough setting so I don't have to kneed. I fiddled around with the breadmaker trying to figure out the delay setting because I was going to visit a friend and wouldn't be back until close to 5pm. I had given up and decided to start the cycle and just let the dough sit risen for a couple hours when the delay worked. Hurray!

I got home pretty much at 5pm which isn't a big deal because pizza only takes a few minutes to prepare and about 12 to bake. I thought it smelt alot like bread when I got home. That's because I baked a loaf of pizza crust. Whoops. Apparently I didn't have the setting right after all.

We ended up eating at Taco Cabana. Where Daniel and I waited for 30 minutes after eating for the rain to let up before we headed home. Tommy couldn't wait and sat through most of class wet.

Tonight I forgot Tommy had class. I was running behind on preparing dinner. And I'm pretty sure I only used 2 1/4 cups of flour in a 3 1/4 cup recipe for focaccia bread. And I forgot to buy fresh tomatoes for bruschetta but was willing to substitute canned until I opened the can. Lots of seeds and mushiness (great for salsa, not so much for bruschetta). I also forgot broccoli to add to the pasta.

I collected my wits and decided on what I thought was a decent plan. We'd put Daniel to bed at 7pm and eat a nice late dinner just the two of us! I'd force a rise out of the bread, use the less than perfect tomatoes and just nix the broccoli. Then Tommy reminded me about his class.

So we went to Whataburger. We debated over which one to go to. He wanted to go to the one on Seminary Dr, but I told him the one on Altamesa was closer. The light at Altamesa was backed up about 5 times longer than I'd ever seen. Whoops. We made it with about 15 minutes for Tommy to order and eat.

Maybe next Thursday we'll just have peanut butter and jelly. On anything but homemade bread.

Daddy's Boy

at the SWBTS picnic

Tommy is such a great father. He loves getting down and playing with Daniel, teaching him how to play with cars, how to play hide and seek and how to avoid eating carrots.

Splash Pad

After hearing about the Splash Pad a few months ago, we just got around to going yesterday. I'm kicking myself for not going sooner. It was so much fun (and free too!). It took Daniel a few minutes to warm up to it mainly because it took us a few minutes to realize that big kids think it's okay to hose down babies. It closes at the end of the month, but hopefully we can squeeze in one more visit when it's not as busy.

Cousin Vincent loved the water gun.

Please take a moment to visit my friend's photography blog.

Tommy and I had dinner with their family (5 girls!!) Saturday night. Michelle recently (maybe a month ago) broke her ankle and so we offered to bring dinner. And I invited us to eat it with them. How else do you make friends!?

After dinner Michelle took advantage of the opportunity to take pictures of a boy (5 girls remember?) Between Daniel's inability to be still longer than 4 seconds and Michelle's inability to do anything but shuffle on her broken foot it's a wonder she got anything!

Check out the pictures HERE as well as her version of the evening. (She says she invited us, but she didn't. I invited us after stopping by her house unannounced with a Coke from Sonic.)

PS if you're looking for a photographer...
