A weekend…

A day or two of rest at the end of every week, there is something to be said for that. Take a little break when you are frazzled and you’ll feel all the better for it afterward. What I can’t do though, is take those mini-breaks like in the middle of the day and actually feel any relief. This is something I need to figure out. Maybe it’s because I know a mini-break is just trying to trick my brain into not freaking out for the next few minutes so I can go on doing and working for the rest of the day. Maybe it’s because I’m stubborn and just can’t let go for a few minutes. But two whole days off…AND my house is clean…man, I feel great.

Mocha Custards

Okay, we don’t have cable…and in fact I refuse to get it until I can get just what I want and not have to scroll through 500 channels of crap to get to the 10 channels that interest me. However, I do love cooking shows, so Saturdays are a big deal because PBS plays about 6 hours of them, yay! I normally tape them to watch at my leisure, but this past weekend I was able to spend some quality time with PBS. In the middle of Everyday Foods, Merc sat down and watched with me and when they started making these Mocha Custards, his eyes lit up.

“Let’s make that!” he drooled.


“Why not?”

“Okay, let’s go to the store.”

We had to pick up a few things, but man was it worth it. We enjoyed all six servings over the next three days and loved every spoonful.

“It’s like the yummiest pudding I’ve ever had,” I marveled. I definately recommend it!
