I decided to try something fun and different for breakfast, since my kids like over easy eggs and toast. I made 'Toad in a Hole'. I'm still not sure why it's called that, nor am I sure that there aren't other names for it but the kids loved it. And it's simple. Merely cut a hole out of the center of the bread, put it in the skillet and crack an egg in the hole. Cook to your desired doneness... is that a word? Sis decided just to pick it up and try to eat it with her hands. That didn't last long.
Once was breakfast was over, and the kids were off to school, I decided to inventory our bug out pack. So far I have only made one bag, and its only partially stocked. I add more items as my finances allow. Currently, I have fire starters, water, protien bars, ponchos, emergency blankets, fishing hooks, vet wrap and a whistle. I plan on adding more first aid items, something for purifying water, more food options, a rope, a blanket, and a few other things. I also plan on making two more bags so each of us has one. The protien bars had a 'best by' date of yesterday. I don't know how long they stay good, but they are going to have to stay there a bit longer until I can replace them
Once that task was complete, I moved on to my office. It looked like something had exploded there. So I went through every file folder, drawer, and surface, and tossed a giant bag full of stuff I didn't need any more. Thankfully, tomorrow is garbage day! Yikes. It sure feels good to sit here in my clean office.
Last but not least, I decided to make a sweet treat. I made the chocolate cake from the recipe on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa box. Unfortunately, the center fell in a little and I couldn't get them out of the pans. So rather than a layer cake, we are eating one layer at a time!
I still have two rooms to get done tomorrow, and my belated spring cleaning will be done. I feel so much better already. It's amazing what a relief it is when you clear out the clutter!
