Making Bread

Yesterday

I managed to make banana bread and granola bars for the week. Well, the banana bread is already half gone, but the granola bars should last most of the week. I finally found a recipe that is decent (not all sugar) that the kids like (they ask to take them to school, and they are nut free which is great because DS has kids in his class that have peanut allergies so he’s supposed to bring nut free snacks only. I also created the meal plan and made the grocery list for the week.

After dealing with food, I moved onto laundry and did two loads yesterday, another today, and I still have one more to go. I got the dishwasher loaded and ran it. Oh, and bathed three kids and trimmed their fingernails/toenails.

All of that while DH took DD to a conference for adopted teens and I stayed behind with the other five. It’s constant when they are all home and there is only one parent around. I never sat down. Once DH returned, he took them all to the park, and I napped for an hour. Glorious. Then I woke up and graded papers. Graded more while at DS’s soccer game today and still have more to work on once the kids go down.

i should totally draw ana and the overwatch team making hummus and syrian bread and zaatar bread and tabbouleh like I do with my family! Genji helps roll and press the bread and gets himself stained with the zaatar, mccree is over the oven puffing out the bread, hana accidentally makes a bunch of flat bread by forgetting to pinch and fold the bread, reinhardt makes a royal mess processing the hummus, mercy and pharah make the tabbouleh and clean up after everybody else

maybe this will make more sense if I draw it out, but making this middle eastern food together is something that really brings my family together and now I want to draw Overwatch peeps making it together too

(FYI, tabbouleh is an arabic salad, syrian bread is pita bread, zaatar bread is syrian bread with spices, and hummus is a chickpea based spread, all of it is popular arabic food)

I should post a picture of my cat for everyday of October
My reasons are as following:
-I brought her home in October
-she was born in October (most likely)
-her favorite blanket to chew and do bread making on is a fleece blanket I got on a halloween clearance sale and it has happy halloween and boo! All over it
-she doesn’t hack up hair balls so she is a very good girl and deserves internet appreciation
-she’s VERY photogenic
-black cats deserve more than what they constanty get from superstition and never get adopted because of it and some people are ABSOLUTELY HORRID to them on halloween catnapping them, abusing them and even violently killing them.
-black cats are wonderful like it or not you’re gonna get 31 pictures of Beezy ‘fuck face McGee’ the cat this october

You have been visited by the Garak of healthy meals! Remember to consume your banana bread at a moderate pace my dear doctor

Just make sure you don’t bake the gecko with it.

I’m glad you all support this gecko in its aspirations to eat my banana bread before I can

(although with the amount of chocolate I’ve put in, I’m not sure this could ever be considered a “healthy meal”)

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
