Domestically Challenged

I love this mom gig, I really do. But when it comes to the home and all the things that come with keeping it up I am not an expert or even close to being one . When I do accomplish something that I feel is pretty domestic I can’t help but want to proclaim it to the world. So here we go. Now before I start let me just say that these things won’t be so big and June Cleaverish to you but to me, my goodness they were ground breaking!!

I made my own Tortilla chips! I wanted some to go with dinner the other day and had none. But I had a bazillion packages of tortillas in the freezer. I cut them in 8ths sprinkled a few spices on them and baked them in the oven. Success! a few minutes later I had healthier yummy chips!

I made a huge batch of chocolate chip cookies and instead of just sticking the big hunk of dough in a freezer bag I rolled out balls, Flash froze them then put them in a plastic bag for easy convenient fresh cookies whenever I want. (Too bad they only lasted a few days because we ate them all so fast)

I made a Jello salad for Dinner. I live in Utah people I should have Jello in my veins. I never make the stuff.So I made a orange jello salad for my girls thinking they would be thrilled. Yeah, They each ate only a few bites and Squeal looked at it like it was nuclear waste. Maybe we just aren’t cut out for jello, but at least I tried.

So there you have it. I hope you did not giggle too loud about what I consider to be domestic in my little world. Now onto making my house look a little less like a bomb exploded in it. But only a little less.

    I’m quite impressed with the tortilla chips, I must say. I love frozen cookie dough. Jello? Meh. I don’t ever make it and I hardly eat it unless it’s the orange kind with pudding and mandarin oranges but really that’s it. Any other fruit? No way! I don’t believe my kids even know what it is.

    Well… you had me until the Jello Salad part. But since you rule I will look past that.

    Oh the cookies look good! See, I am okay at getting the stuff ready but I ruin it all when I try to cook. And my housekeeping skills could use some improvement.

    ok, those cookies (dough?) looked good.

    I live in Utah too, but I will not make the dreaded jello. You need to go sit in the corner

    I might have to move 11 miles to the South after saying this (that’ll get me out of the state) but I can’t abide anything in my Jello – give it to me straight up – no fruit, no floaties – and certainly no little bits of cabbage or carrots…

    there, I’ve said it… now I’d probably better go pack.

    Are you kidding me?? Very domestic!! Nice work on the tortilla chips! And excellent idea with the cookie dough. You should write a book…you know more than you think!
