Was there a full moon last night? Because at 3:45 Isla showed up asking to sleep in our bed, then at 5 she woke me up demanding to wash her hands (???). Needless to say, 6am came REALLY early.
I got way less done today than I intended to, but I did manage to make it out for a run, order more school uniforms, pay bills and shower. That might be the #1 difference in having both kids in school full time: I shower way more often. Judge away, but it’s true. You moms know what I’m talking about. It’s difficult to do things like wash your hair when kid #1 is screaming for a snack and kid #2 is keeping herself busy by digging into your eyeshadow palette with a dull pencil and painting her face with lip gloss.
Not that I speak from experience.
My dinner plan was to grab slider buns at Target after school to make roast beef sandwiches from our leftover Mississippi roast, but it started pouring as soon as I picked up the kids. So we headed home to get out of the rain, and I found plan B for dinner: pot roast hash with fried eggs. Amazingly we had all of the ingredients on hand. My only real adjustment was adding sliced mushrooms (I added them with the bell peppers). It takes a while to make since you have to parboil the potatoes, chop a bunch of veggies, and stir pretty much constantly.
But! It tasted great. It’s not a pretty dish, but the flavor was perfect- the horseradish adds a lot so don’t skip that part. Brian fried the eggs because that is not my forte.
Roasted okra on the side. Jack’s really into fried okra and I was hoping this would be an acceptable substitute, but NO DICE. Oh well.
Hoping for an early bedtime after last night’s rager. Catch y’all tomorrow!
