Tonight I got home from work and started supper right away to get it over with. It was a "breakfast for supper" kind of night - biscuits and gravy. Everything was going terrific when suddenly the gravy was so thick that it formed something resembling the texturing stuff you put on walls. It tasted okay, but I couldn't get past the texture. I guess this is one dish I am not supposed to make cause it rarely turns out for me.
Which brings me to this. I am so sick of cooking. I need some inpiration. We can't afford to eat out for supper every night - nor would I want to. But I've hit a concrete block and need someone to give me some great ideas! Anyone have any suggestions?? Please click on the comments link below to write your suggestions to me. Please!!
I'm reading this book right now called "Eat Pray Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. It's a really good book. The thing that I always wonder about is how these people are able to travel for a year or more to just live in some foreign country. I mean, how do they pay for their living expenses? I know the answer is that they save or find work to do in these places to get by. But wow. I just can't imagine being that adventurous.
The tip for today was inspired by something my mother has done for years. (There ma, I mentioned you. Are you happy now?) To remove eye makeup with out having to scrub use petroleum jelly and a tissue. It will keep the skin around your eyes soft and will remove the makeup with no harsh chemicals. Just rub a little bit on your eyes. It will remove all of your eye makeup quite easily. Rub it off with a tissue and a gentle hand so you don't make your eyes sore. You may need to use another tissue to remove any remaining petroleum jelly.
