Thankfully it is Friday. What a week..........we've had over 5 inches of rain in one day this week which resulted in septic tank problems. Stake me through the heart...we need a new drain field.
All this rain just acerbated the problems with back ups. Pine tree roots have invaded the drain field. It's always something. And there is so much standing water that the Earth just can't absorb anymore.
On the bright side, we do not have any water in the house. There has been much flooding in our area and some people have had cars upended in ditches of water, cars submerged, roads washed out...our field is a lake. Oh yeah...and that means the septic tank truck can not get in...it would sink. Lovely.
The shibas are getting used to new food as the Innova we had been giving them is such high protein that they are gaining weight. Lots of it. Bad for the joints and their health in general. So the finicky kids are having to get used to new stuff.
Recipes - Almost everything I tried this week had an issue. I started a pineapple upside down cake only to discover that I had but four pineapple rings.....off to the store to get more pineapple rings.
Another night I just knew we had fresh pasta in the fridge and so we stopped for fresh scallops and wine to make a pasta dish. I start the prep with frying the garlic and getting things ready...lo and behold...no pasta in the fridge.
Tried two new recipes and they came out edible...but you'd shrug and say, I never want it again. Next week's meals will be better planned! I decided not to change the name of this blog to culinary disasters..haha...
On the good news front I have a job interview and I have not had an interview in oh...say, about 7 years. I do have a job...but this would be much cooler.
And, as I titled this post - it's Friday! That means sleeping in tomorrow and pizza tonight.
Have a great weekend.
