I've been writing up a list of dinner plans for the past two weeks and have tried to stick to them. Cooking at home should be less expensive than eating out too, so that's another good thing. Last night I cooked BBQ Chicken Breasts and some recipe off of a box of Velveeta for Pasta Primavera which was just noodles, cheese, and frozen vegetables. Tonight I'm planning for tacos. I guess my cooking skills are pretty elementary at this point but at least they are something.
I'm attempting to write a paper for my English class right now and I think I am doing an okay job, but I'm probably going to go way over the 5 pages I needed. It's a rough draft that is due tomorrow so hopefully it's okay if it's going to end up a little long...
A week from today is Easter. Yay! The plans so far are that we're going to head to church with Mark's family, and then there is dinner at his cousin's at 2, and I have no idea what my side of the family is doing yet. If I recall I think last year I didn't do anything with my family besides Easter morning baskets and whatnot so maybe we aren't even having a big dinner at all. I plan on going over there later that night anyway and I'm going to make dessert for both (the same dessert) so we'll see how that goes! Cooking is one thing, but baking seems to be so much harder for some reason.
The wedding is in 15 months. 15 months feels like a long time away. I am trying to not let that get to me though. It will be here before we know it. And then I will be glad I didn't try to make it for April because we'll have really nice weather in the end of June. I hope.
