Pizza and a Movie, Take 2

Ian had a make up day at school today.  So, I took the opportunity to clean the apartment and try my hand at baking with our tiny convection oven.  The cleaning went well, but the baking didn't.  It was pretty disappointing for me.  I was hoping it would help me feel better.

Our tiny toaster oven doesn't have many settings.  You can only set the time and whether you want heat from the top, bottom, or both.  I tried several combinations (the whole time from both and then variations of alternating the top and bottom), but the result was always the same.  Burnt on the outside and raw dough in the center.

Better luck next time, I suppose.

Ian likes to do little art projects around the house and I forgot to post the latest one.

We save all our Tootsie Pop wrappers, so he covered a tissue box and made a wicked cool stand for our speakers.

Ian stopped by Pizza Hut tonight, so we'll actually have our pizza and a movie.  Tomorrow we're getting haircuts and Amy and I might get manicures.  We'll see. I'm not usually into that, but I've been feeling so crummy, it just might help.

Good night!


  1. Do you have access to Aluminum Foil there? You might try covering your cookies for the first few minutes. That might help slow the cooking process down.
    I think you should try lite therapy to help you blues. I hate that you feel this way. As a mom I want to try to fix it

  2. I feel like I'm reading into my future, only with no chances at movies and pizza. :( Hope things get better soon!
