It’s still Thursday

Not once, not twice but three times today I have seriously been of the belief that it is Friday. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep since my smallest child seems to have taken a strong liking to again sleeping in my bed, whining what seems like constantly through out the night. Perhaps it’s the fact that my middle child threw an award winning tantrum last night – one that tested both my patience as a mother and my strength as a human. Or maybe it’s my older child and her what seems like never ending list of requests, drive me here, I need this, don’t forget that, please can I have another? But even in my exhaustion (when will someone please invent a coffee IV?), I am already preparing for the coming week. Making lists, choosing the menu, deciding on what other things I will need to make to fill my cupboard with tasty treats for my children next week. I’m also wondering why this is always my job? Doesn’t someone else want to take over the task of menu planning, grocery shopping and food planning in this house?

No food news or recipes today. I am just too tired. *yawn* I am working tirelessly on the menu for next week. I’m also working on a recipe for Apple Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Swiss Meringue Buttercream frosting. It seems as though the frosting is giving me a bit of difficulty in the conversion to refined sugar and dairy free, so I will have to play with it more before posting. But know it’s in the works.

What I wouldn’t give for a nap. Anyone have a pillow?
