Ugh... what a roller coaster I've been on. Training for a new job, trying to figure out a schedule for Ainsley and I, and maybe doing something occasionally to keep my sanity equals no internet time. Which actually helps my sanity. But anywho...
I interviewed for another job that pays 10K a year than my current one. This may should ridiculous, but I think making more would make it a little easier to leave Ainsley every day. At least I would feel it's more justified. And if I don't get this position, I'm hoping to change my current job hours from 8 to 5 to 7 to 4. It would give me some time to play with Ainsley and maybe make a decent dinner more often than I am now. I'm typically a winter kinda gal... I like dark dreary days. Makes me want to snuggle up and read a book. However, I'm really looking forward to summer this year. More daylight so I can take Miss A to the park and we can work in the yard a little bit. I have a long list of projects I need to do with her too. Thank you pinterest....
This evening I did get a chance to cook a little. I won't tell you about the chicken. It's not even worth typing about. The mashed potatoes I tried were awesome though. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures. I do have some of Miss Ainsley though!
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 oz crumbled feta cheese
5-6 medium Idaho potatoes
5 cloves of garlic, peeled ( I always use WAY more garlic than any recipe calls for)
Peel and cube potatoes. Put in saucepan with garlic. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes. Drain, put in large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mash.
