Pie- delicious pie

So, I made a pie tonight. I suppose there's nothing too awful exciting about that. I like pie...I bet you do, too. The real problem here, is that it was about 92 degrees outside the house and about 81 degrees inside the house. That was before I had the oven turned on to 425 for an hour or so. Phew. Talk about a hot space.

Pretty much as soon as the pie came out of the oven, I decided I needed some relief. I came up to our bedroom and turned on the air conditioner. Much, much better. I can't tell you how much better...just...much.

As for the pie, it's delicious! I had a slice a few minutes ago and I'm pleased with the result. I made a strawberry-rhubarb pie since my friend Jamie brought in some rhubarb for me. I know it's a little late in the season, but it was delicious. No complaints here!

So, other than my pie-making skills, I really didn't do a whole heck of a lot tonight. Oh, wait. I took that nap on the couch for an hour or so. That was pretty productive. Is it just me, or do you have a hard time getting stuff done when it's a balmy 85 in the kitchen? Hubby was wonderful and did the dishes today, so that's something I don't really have to worry much about. I used a skillet to make dinner tonight and then I have the mixing bowl and wooden spoon and a measuring cup to wash. Not too bad. I think those dishes can safely wait till tomorrow to wash.

I believe that tomorrow is going to be "Let's clean the bathroom" day. Hurray. Huzzah. There will be great rejoicing. Okay, there will not be. But hey, it needs done and that toilet isn't going to clean itself! Trust me.

I find it hard to understand why I am able to have such great enthusiasm for housekeeping when I am sitting at my desk trying to work, but once I get home, I act as though I've been chopping down trees all day and am sapped of any and all life sustaining forces. I guess it IS pretty tough sitting at a desk all day. Sheesh. What do you want from me? lol

I planned a week of easy meals since I knew it was going to be scorching hot for the next few days.

Monday- Red beans and rice with turkey sausage, mixed veggies
Tuesday- Turkey/Spinach lasagna (pre-made, from WalMart), salad
Wednesday- Salmon, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans
Thursday- Flatbread pizzas
Friday- leftovers/whatever you can dig out of the pantry or fridge

There you have it! Easy-peasy-one-two-threesy!
