It's true what they say, that experience is the best teacher. Well I've been mommying it up for over 4 years now, so I should be pretty well versed in all things toddler...shouldn't I? Leave it to the Texas Tornado to further my education.
Tonight a kind friend invited us over for dinner. She's a frequent guinea pig of my cooking experiments. Tonight we traded places and enjoyed a delicious experiment of hers. I want to emphasize the friendship, so you understand how much I'll miss it. (This is the part where the Tornado comes in.)
Today while M and I were chatting it up, the Texas Tornado blew into the room wearing an adorable little girly pink sundress and carrying her diaper. Instantly, I had a feeling of dread. I knew for sure it was a wet diaper, but then remembered I had just changed her minutes before...that's when it hit me. Have you guessed it? That's right it wasn't wet...it was the other thing...except it was missing. On my list of things I never want to relive, I will add having to search another person's house for a missing pile of poop created by own child. HUMILIATING!!! Thankfully, it was a quick search, and the missing poo was located amongst the toys in the playroom. Awesome.
I have to say. I so didn't see this one coming. Rest assured that I have indeed learned the lesson that the Tornado needs to be wearing her diaper panties every time she wears a dress. Every time. My friend says we are not banished, but who could blame her if we are, right?
This morning held no indication of impending doom. Matter of fact, it started off really nicely. Typically I am a fancy weekend breakfaster, but decided to make today a fun breakfast day too. I attempted my very first Eggs Benedict.
When it comes to EB, I'm an enormous fan. It's my absolutely favorite room service breakfast to order. Today's recipe comes from Rach, and that sweet girl is even thinking of my figure on this one. When it comes to making the hollandaise sauce for this one, instead of tons of butter, a portion of the butter is replaced by chicken broth. Clever, eh? To make it my own, I traded out the traditional english muffin for a crumpet. I also swapped out the canadian bacon for regular bacon, only because I love traditional bacon more. Lastly, Rach had paired her EB with asparagus, so I did as well. Nothing quite like a green veg to keep you full the whole morning through. Plus the hollandaise sauce goes oh so well with it. A filling and sustaining breakfast to start a crazy day.
Check out the link below for the recipe. If you're an EB lover too, but have never attempted it yourself, I urge you to give this one a whirl. I was able to pull it off without a hitch, so that's got to mean something right? Hope you're week is off to a far less embarrassing start than mine!
