Since my father-in-law has been here all day as well, helping hubby with the construction of the aforementioned shed, I put together two meals rather more fussy than I would usually make on a Saturday. Tonight's dinner, for instance, consisted of Apricot Chicken, rice pilaf with cheese, and buttered peas, with a freshly made Peach Pound Cake for dessert -- ideas pilfered from a hasty skim through my back issues of Taste of Home magazine.
Anyway, much to my relief it all turned out fine, and even (if I dare say so myself) rather delicious -- though since I was serving it to, y'know, men, they basically just wolfed it down with a muffled "thx" and headed back out the door.
So now I have piles of laundry and a mess in the kitchen still needing to be cleaned up, two grubby boys to be bathed and put to bed, and this rotten midsummer cold I seem to have picked up from my husband is just getting worse, not better. Ech.
But apart from that, it's been a pretty good day. :)
