Work It Out Wednesday: Not in the Mood

I'm very deflated this week.
Most of it is because we've been establishing an earlier nap time for Baby Boy and we all know how fun that can be. He's going through a huge growth spurt and the poor little guy was just tired out and not getting enough rest, so we adjusted his schedule to allow for more rest. Getting him there was Not. Fun. But now we're in the home stretch, thanks to The Baby Whisperer and it's downhill from here on out. But I'm still not caught up on sleep. I think I shall catnap today and really focus on healthy food choices today to make up for the lack of exercise.

In the hope of being frugal and healthy, I tried to experiment with my nearly over ripe tomatoes and cucumbers from my last farmer's market trip.
The result was marinaded cukes and tommy toes that could burn the chest hair off a leprechaun.
Yay! I found a use for my pretty thrift shop jar!
Memos to self:
-Dilute the vinegar and ease up on the mustard powder.
-Next time, get Hubby to taste it first instead of taking a foolishly huge chomp out of a cucumber and almost
spitting fire, giving Hubby leave to be amused (and wary of your homemade concoctions).

And those are words of wisdom from a lady who could hardly talk for nearly 20 minutes after that fatal taste.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, Beauties. Steer clear of the mustard powder!


  1. You crack me up! Well, they can't all turn out perfectly on the first try:)

  2. Haha, thanks, Marie :) I will be trying again, but definitely with less vinegar and mustardy stuff.
