A Family Affair

Can you believe it?  We’re at it again!  The house is in disarray as my husband has taken on the task of staining our cabinets.  He is doing a wonderful job and saving the family lots of money.  That is indeed good news.  The not-so-good news is that I haven’t cooked in about two weeks.  Let me rephrase that…I’ve cooked in the crock pot and the microwave in the lower level of our house.  It’s been limiting at most and creative at best. 

We have a small refrigerator (dorm room size) and plenty of counter space in the lower level.  Once I had so much electricity running that my power downstairs went out.  It wasn’t a big deal.  We just powered it back on and was back in business. 

We are doing the work because my husband’s mothers’ siblings and their family are coming to visit (about 20 of them).  The crew is going back and forth from our house to my brother-in-law’s house during their 3-4 day stay (with all the chaos that has been created, you would think they would be here longer).  We’re looking forward to a good time.  I am hosting dinner on a Saturday.  I have been working hard on my cheese biscuits and other deserts.  I can’t wait to see how they like it. 

I’ll keep you informed.
