Woohoo! Look what I did!

On Sunday, I decided that I wanted 3 columns on my page here. To start, I didn't know that there was such a thing as a tutorial on the topic, so I muddled around trying to figure it out. I actually managed to add a second sidebar all on my own. By the time I found out about tutorials, I was already so far into it on my own that I didn't want to start over...besides, I'm stubborn, and I wanted to do it all by myself. Inevitably, I got stuck and wandered over to the Blogger help group to see what I could find out. Apparently the right-hand column being pushed down is a common problem. I tried everything they suggested, but it didn't work. I even tried starting over using a tutorial, but I ended up with the same problem, along with a few new ones. So I went back to my own work and eventually fixed the problem! I managed to do this (almost) all by myself. And I discovered that I really like playing with HTML, even though I don't know what I'm doing. Another thing I did yesterday is create this cushion cover out of my beloved red fabric: And I made supper...I'm not a great cook. Both my sisters are, but I'm not. I can create a lovely meal for company, but for every day, I'm way to lazy to use complicated recipes, and I'm rarely successful when I try to just wing it. But this is a recipe that I've created. Because using a meat-mallet is fun!

Yeah. That's it. Mix everything but the chicken. Use enough egg so the mix isn't too dry. Amounts aren't important. Flatten chicken (Not recommended when the baby is napping). Cover it with plastic wrap or something so that you're not splashing chicken juice all over yourself and the kitchen. Spoon mix on top and wrap chicken around it, securing with toothpicks. Bake for half an hour or so. And finally, this is what my front garden looks like today: Never mind the garbage and debris. For some reason, my yard seems to collect all the garbage and litter that is floating around the parking lot. I'm planning on doing a spring clean-up on the first warmish day.

  2. LOL! I'm totally not. I've had more cooking disasters than successes. I just hope my mother-in-law doesn't remember the tinfoil IN the baked potatoes from the first time I cooked for her.
