The phone calls on my cell were short and sweet and I will call most people back tonight. Like the potentially new crew of parents I hung out with the other weekend. We tossed idea's back and forth about what to do this weekend but nothing went down. K called me wanted to know if me and Pooka wanted to meet them at the park but I was stuck at home waiting for the phone man to come. :-(
Saturday night I had expected, yet unexpected company. Guess I should have been ready for it since I did offer my place as a get away spot. LOL! I think one of the funniest parts of Saturday evening is when one of the kids asked if Pooka was teething cuz people kept playing with yet another loose tooth trying to get it out.
Sunday I was motivated to clean my place. I got most of it done and decided to cook a big (for 2 folks) dinner. I didn't have anything I wanted to eat so me and Pooka went to the store after Speed Racer...
I LIKED SPEED RACER! I don't know why the critics were hatin' on it. It was fun, flashy, colorful and cute! Pooka said it was "cool". There was a few times we laughed out loud and a few times we got caught up in the race. So I don't know what the problem was.
We got home and I started cooking. I tried to do it like my grandmother, who I think cooks circles around the best of 'em, but I couldn't match it 100%. It still came out good tho'. Take a look.
This here are my collards. They were pretty clean when I brought them but I still had to clean 'em just so I knew for myself they were clean.
After I got my greens on it was time to get the mac and cheese going. Lately my g-ma has been using cheese soup mix with hers so I thought I'd try it too.
The last thing I need is fried food, esp. since I fried chicken the night before, but I fried me up some wings anyway.
*sniff sniff* Greens are just about done!
Mac and cheese is browned at the top, it's ready to come out!
And that was my meal. Yeah I know, I didn't do cornbread and yes I do cook my greens with the stems. What's funny is after everything was done, I wasn't hungry anymore! Best believe I got me something good for lunch today tho' LOL!
Happy belated mommy's day!
