One of Those Days

We all have them, right? Yesterday was a real doozie.

{for the sake of having pictures in this post so it’s not all text, prepare yourself for random pictures that have nothing to do with the content here. you’re welcome 🙂 }

I started off by making a batch of granola bars from a recipe suggested by my sister. It was SUPER easy and relatively quick to pull together. The final step is to put the mixture in a 9×13 baking dish lined with wax paper sprayed with non-stick spray and let cool for a couple of hours. So all is going well until I go to turn out the granola and cut it into bars.

Houston, we have a problem.

The wax paper was stuck. I spent an hour picking off pieces of wax paper; I died. I don’t really know what went wrong, maybe the mixture was just too hot when I put it in the dish? We’ll never know.

Fail number two was dinner. Matt wasn’t going to be home for dinner, which in hindsight, thank goodness! I decided to make lentils and keilbasa, as originally planned. This was my first time making lentils and it was horrible. I was using chicken broth, as I read in a recipe, but they ended up being way, way, WAY too salty. I heated up the keilbasa in a skillet and that just wasn’t very good either.

It really was just one of those days where nothing was going my way. So I had some champagne sorbet and popcorn and snuggled on the sofa with the kitten.
