T’was a Mere Day After Christmas…
Their presents were opened, the cookies were baked,
We pretty much plowed through every single freakin’ activity during week one, for old St. Nick’s sake.
Yet school remains out for seven days more.
My patience is waning, not to mention I’m noticing those baked cookies on my thighs.
They’ve skated, they’ve danced, they’ve watched more TV than ever before,
So wouldn’t you think they could give me just one day—one hour!—without making my life such a chore?
But NOOOOO, it’s impossible! It’s not in their blood!
“What are we doing next?” “And after that?” “Where’s my friend?” “Can she sleep over?” As my head makes a THUD.
Perhaps this will help me from making another useless warning.
But then just like that, the fun part is over and I’m left to pick up your mess.
Oh school, please come back sooner, and once again we will be blessed.
Grilled Cheese with Mozzarella and Pesto (when you just can’t think about cooking one more thing)
- two slices thick and hearty bread
- two slices big red tomatoes
- two slices fresh mozzarella
- two fresh basil leaves
- slather of fresh pesto (click for recipe)
Do I really need to tell you? Just break out that George Forman grill you wanted to sell in your garage sale but couldn’t. Layer everything and then layer some more. Slather that pesto on thick. And add some extra crispy turkey bacon for added effect of deliciousness.
