Father's Day

Had a horrible nightmare, had to check on Kidlet, so here I am now that I can't sleep ... lol.

The contrax have slowed down unless I try to *do* anything. Steph came over and cleaned on Saturday for a couple hours, then mentioned IKEA had a sale on a dresser I'd been eyeing for the baby, and since we have nowhere to put his clothes/dipes/anything, we headed up there. It's less than 20 minutes away, and she made me borrow a wheelchair from IKEA and pushed me around the store in it. Kiddo pushed the flat cart (we got her a dresser too since hers is really old and falling apart), and we chilled with hot dogs and cinnamon buns after. Even doing just that much tuckered me out the rest of the day and I did have some contrax later, so I've been trying to rest the rest of the weekend. We did go see FIL, but I parked my butt on a couch and didn't move unless I had to pee -- hubby got me food and drinks and catered to me even though it's Father's Day. LOL. I did make a peach cobbler last night (like, super easy) because it's FIL's favorite dessert I've ever made for them. We bought hubby some computer components a week or two ago, and that was his present from me. Small Fry called him (shocker, she hasn't the last two years for Father's Day!) so that was good to hear from her. And kiddo made him a card and a little key/money/pen/pencil holder out of a can (from the peaches for the cobbler, lol) and drew pictures and stuff for it. She did a really good job. She's been super helpful and well behaved as well. She's used up all the Sculpey, so I need to try and get her some more (and maybe see if kipluck and/or steph can help her since I am not that kind of an artist). And she's been learning to do counted cross stitch, too -- making a little Nemo thing for her brother. hehehe.

Two 29-oz cans sliced peaches, drained, reserve juice
1 c flour
1 c sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg

Spray a 9 x 13 pan with nonstick spray; put drained peaches in bottom. Sprinkle peaches liberally with cinnamon. In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients. Add egg and some of the reserved peach juice, enough to make a brownie/cake batter consistency (about 1/2 c?). Spread all over peaches and bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes. Serve with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream. YUM.

YAY! I'm glad your resting. I was pretty tired after Saturday too. ;)

That's what happens when you push around a pregnant woman and lift boxes that weigh 72 and 100 pounds respectively ... hubby looked at me like, "you've got to be kidding," when he lugged them upstairs yesterday. lol

steph k said...

that's why I usually open the boxes and carry things up individually. ;)

stewbert said...

well ... I think there's lots and lots of pieces ... we haven't opened them yet. hehehe.

hmmm... I love your peach cobbler! Thanks for posting the recipe!

Glad you're resting for the most part. I'm done with Fablehaven so let me know when you're ready to trade books!

yw! I've never measured the peach juice, so it may be less than that. I'd add a little at a time ... lol.

I couldn't get into Wicked (I'll tell you later why). Going to try the other one. Thanks!
