Usually I like Wednesdays. They’re nice. They’re halfway through the week, they spell funny, and it lets me know I actually will make it through the week. But this week is particularly awful. I’ve been sick for the past two days and not wanting to even get out of bed. (Apparently once you’re married, when you get sick, you’re pregnant.) I was overloaded with a hunk of online class that came earlier in the week than usual, memorizing a 13 (THIRTEEN!) page aria for my voice lesson and trying to figure out what my homework is that’s due tomorrow. Oh, and our house is unfinished, the dishes are piled up, I can’t seem to start exercising and the sun is in my eyes. Ohhhh, woe is me.
Clearly I’m ready for this week to be over so I can spend time with my hubs and get back to normal.
Thankfully, last night I felt well enough to get up and make dinner for once. We bought a bunch of jumbo shrimp and I decided to whip up some fettucine of sorts. After browsing some recipes online, I just decided to wing it as I almost always do.
I ended up breaking out a sauce pan and pouring in some milk and the rest of the heavy cream we had. I melted about 3 cups of sharp white cheddar, 1/4 cup of goat cheese, and 1/2 cup of cream cheese. It turned out pretty well. I think I should’ve added pepper at least. I tried adding red pepper flakes but all that dairy just cancelled it right out.
No pic of the final product. Just picture the cheese all melty and shrimp all cookedy. And mixed together.
Oh. And I made a cake today. Wanna see? Sure you do.
I showed two views because I’m pretentious. And I just had to look up that word to see if I used it correctly. And I was. Boom.
Hope your Wednesday/week is going better than mine!
PS. Remember that audition I told you about? Well I made it into their scholarship choir. I have to decide whether or not I’m going to accept it by April 4. I wouldn’t be mentioning that unless I was thinking about not going. So, if you think about it, pray for clarity and guidance on the calling on my life!
