Kitchen is Closed and Waffle House

I love to cook; in fact, it is my third favorite hobby after knitting and reading; however, I am soooo tired of cooking. You know, it’s kind of funny, when people know you love to do something, they let you do it all of the time, without thinking about it. It is like, “Oh she likes to cook, so she is having fun” but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing! I feel like I have been cooking constantly since Thanksgiving. lolol The kitchen is now closed! I am going through and throwing stuff out, putting away, cleaning, and then no one will get anything out of there unless they fix it and clean up behind it. :-)

DD1 and her boyfriend came here to visit since they could not get her for Christmas so we had a second Christmas. It was fun, and I love seeing her and the BF because they are great people to visit with. I always have a good time with them and it is fun to watch people change over time when you do not see them everyday. We had four cranky dogs in the house too, they could not decide who should sit where so there was a lot of growling.

DD2 and I found a Waffle House! We have not had their wonderful food for over a year and a half and I was seriously craving it. When we were at my last PT visit, she looked it up on her Blackberry and discovered how close it (there is only one here in Colorado) was to where we were and decided to stop. It was just as we remembered, delicious. mmmmmmm I will be going there every so often in the future. Waffle House seems to be a southern thing so we were very lucky to find one here and especially find one so close!

Sounds wonderful!

I think it is fun to have "second" holidays. Makes each get-together less stressful since you have fewer people at a time rather than everyone all descending at once.

OH! Waffle House! I love those!!! What kind of hash browns did you get? We used to drive my snowbird grandfather down to Florida every year and eat at WH along the way. Very fond memories!
