I get to spend this week with 2 little rascals –
I’m watching Norris & Jack while my parents enjoy the sunshine and warm breezes of the Bahamas. Lucky them.. but lucky me too! I love these guys. They’re almost like dogs trapped in cat bodies. I’d love to have some cats at our own place, but the pet deposit is ridiculous.
In any case, me + 2 cats mean that I am making a lot of single-lady meals. For the past 2 nights it’s been easy throw-together stir fry.
A bit of chicken breast, a whole bag of spinach and Trader Joe’s Hodge Podge frozen veggies. Yum! I can’t complain about single meals and the kitties to keep me company while I’m away from the hubby.
Of course, I have to keep myself busy and that involves lots of cross stitching and a bit of baking. I whipped up something this morning to appease my coworkers. Rumor has it that they were getting antsy for another baked good. I got my fill of cookies at Christmas so coffee cake it was!

Crunchy and soft – 2 very good things! I think the girls at work will be pleased.
