I'm talking to myself softly as I walk down South Dearborn Street in Chicago at 6:28 am on my way to work. When I'm startled by a homeless man reclining in a doorway, muttering to himself.

Oh the irony. We aren't so different after all.

Hello again

”You should blog again.” she said.
“What do I possibly have to say?” I said.
“Write about your fairy tale romance, your transplantation to Dallas, your idea of a non-overt dairy vegan diet.” she said.
“Maybe” I said.

I don’t know if I’ve still got it in me. I read back through my old posts and I laugh and sometimes I shed a tear. What if my life experiences now, at 44, aren’t as interesting as they were when I was in my 30’s, when my kids were both living at home, when I could actually remember which drawer to open. I guess if I’m being honest I never really cared if my stories were interesting, I only cared that they were stories I wanted out of my head.

A day in Robinett history
Random thoughts

Maybe, just maybe, I can make this work again.

Only for you Wav.

Vacation: Day Three

What did I do today you ask?

These will be the appetizer tonight:
Neiman Marcus Dip
This is really tasty!
Buffalo Balls (hee,hee)
These weren't as easy as i thought they were going to be. I ended up adding some Panko bread crumbs because the mixture was so mushy and i still ended up spooning them onto the pan (like cookie dough). So they are more like Buffalo Chips as opposed to Buffalo Balls (OK now I'm giggling!)

This we will be tonight's main course:
Spaghetti Bake
I'll admit as i was putting it together i kept thinking it just wasn't going to be cheesy enough. So i added a layer of ricotta/cheese between the veggie layer and the top sauce/meat layer. Well see how it comes out!

This we will eat for breakfast tomorrow:
Cream Cheese Danish
I can not wait to get up tomorrow and put these together. I mixed up the filling and the icing so all i have to do is assemble and bake.

And this we will eat tomorrow:
Mexican Doritos Casserole 
I'm sure this will be good, it was the last thing i put together so I was getting tired. I mixed up everything but haven't layered it into the pan yet. I figured it would be better if i didn't let it still on top of the Doritos overnight since we aren't going to eat it until tomorrow.

Now the dishwasher is running and i'm putting my feet up for a bit! And i'm out!
