When I knew I'd probably have off from work today I had all kinds of wild thoughts running through my mind of what to do with the time. I went to the market after my late night because I thought I'd get a bag of wings and make use of some Pinterest pins. I was wrong. The supermarket was a wasteland. I thought I'd try out a parmesean crusted Tilapia recipe. I also thought I'd get a loaf of French bread and make Paula Deen's French Toast Casserole for breakfast. I was wrong. There were no wings, no tilapia, no bread, no nothing (kidding, they had a few things I needed just not these and certaintly no meat!). Luckily my mom stopped at the market earlier and picked up some fresh bread, so I thought there was hope for my french toast. When I got home, we realized it was actually garlic Italian bread, and there went that dream. Then I thought maybe I'll make some bread, until I found that the yeast was about a year past the "best by" date. As the novice baker I am, I thought I'd try it anyway (does yeast expire?), but then I realized I didn't have an 1/8 teaspoon measuring spoon. As you can imagine that project ended there.
So, what did I end up doing? Lounging around the house, eating leftovers with the 'rents, tackling a pile of new magazines, and being extremely grateful I'm not out in the cold! While I didn't do what I set out to, it definitely beats being stuck outside. Looking over the events of the past day make me realize just how blessed I am to have family, shelter, heat, electricity, and all the little things that I sometimes take for granted.
