The kids had fun at the monster truck show on Sunday. They came home all excited, with cotton candy, a plastic Gravedigger hat, some crazy flashing rings, a lego monster truck, etc. etc. I meant to get a picture of Reece in the hat, but forgot. Maybe tomorrow.
He was keyed up Sunday night and didn't get to sleep until late, so he was tired today. I hope he was good at school. He went to sleep like an angel tonight, about 7:40 PM. The little girls did, too.
Still cold here--44 right now, and will get down to 33 degrees tonight (or early morning). Brrr.
I saw an article on the internet about freezing whole lemons, then grating them up to use in whatever you like. You wash them first, really well. Then put them in a freezer bag and freeze them. When they are frozen, take them out and grate the whole thing, peel, seeds and all. The article, which I can't find now, said to sprinkle the frozen bits of lemon on everything: soup, eggs, salads, veggies, beans, ice cream, ramen noodles--you name it. It said that it brightens up the flavor of any food and is good for you, as well.
I like lemon, so I bought some and tried it. I've only grated one so far (I used the small holes). The article (that I can't find) said you can put them in the food processor to grate them, and I'm going to do that with the rest of them tomorrow. The one I grated smelled heavenly while I was grating it, and I put the gratings in a plastic bowl w/lid and put it back in the freezer. The gratings tasted good all by themselves. They sort of melted in my mouth. I'll try them on food tomorrow.
Camryn has a dentist appointment tomorrow, so I will drop her and her mommy off at the dentist's after we take Aubrey to school at 11:15. Gina will stay with me.
I also have a dentist appointment, but mine is next week on Tuesday. Dreading it, but need it. I have 2 broken molars that have to be fixed. The dentist didn't want to do it while I was still recovering from cancer and chemo, but one of them is starting to hurt a little and I don't want it to get worse.
Hope you've had a good start to your week.
