an update...

It is amazingly gratifying to know that there are people that seriously care about your blog. Especially when those people are family members. Especially when they call you about 12:30 AM at night completely shocked that nothing has been posted for two days!

So, on an absolutely urgent request from my father I’m posting an update on today’s and yesterday’s dinners, just so the record is complete.

Yesterday was a go-to-my-parents-and-eat-there-and-cook-nothing day. Which explains the no post. Today’s (though effectively the day ended almost an hour ago), dinner was a reruns show of greatest hits (and least time/ingredients ones) from the past week. For dinner last Wednesday’s spaghetti was re-featured in all its glory and vegetarian/carnivorous versions.

Here is proof that I made both:

(Yes, I know – the stove needs some serious scrubbing…)

And here is the veggie version as served on a plate. It’s only fair, cause last time the chicken won the coveted spot…

And for breakfast the amazing vanilla yogurt pancakes made a grand reappearance (cause I had half a jar of yogurt left, and couldn’t think of any other way to use it).


So dad, I’m ok, and I’m cooking :-)

Why the lack of creativity? Probably has something to do with the most annoying weather we’ve been having – where it rains and rains and rains some more. And then stops only long enough to lure you outside, and then poor again with a vengeance. So in a weather like this it’s hard to be creative. Especially when it’s next to impossible to get out to buy the most basic groceries.

Generally I’m actually quite fond of fall. The colors nature shows off are so much more versatile and delicious than during its other seasons, that I just love driving down a country road and staring… (Though that’s probably not a very safe idea…) But this wet and dark and gloomy part is downright depressing. Makes me want to become one of those hibernating animals, fall asleep, and wake up in the spring.

That is also why I spend all my computer time looking for a cheer on other peoples’ hilarious posts, which leads to me writing a big fat nothing…

But I promise to improve. Pinky swear…

Aww, thanks for the link! That totally made my day. :)

And I, too, was wondering where you'd been. The people demand posts with yummy pictures!

Down here, we've just emerged from a rainy spell, too. It really does take a toll on the spirit. I was raised in Texas, and therefore I NEED plentiful sunshine! Hope it clears-up for you soon...

Well, Kelley, your posts are way too hillarious :-)

As for the yummy pictures... I intend to improve, but cooking has been sluggish... Getting lazy, I think.

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
