I think we have elves. How else do you explain that on Tuesday night, I went to bed around 9:30, and when I woke up Wednesday morning, my shower had been cleaned, my toilet was scrubbed, my kitchen was sparkly, and all our floors were mopped?
OK, so it's entirely possible that this is my elf.
Yes, the hubby has been a cleaning machine. Did I mention he did all that after going to a two-hour class with me? A two-hour class on breastfeeding?
Yes, he's a saint. He deserves an award. Or at least some supper. So tonight I made some beef souvlaki skewers, because it was way too hot to cook indoors. This is an adaptation of a Cuisine at Home recipe. We substituted beef for the lamb, made several other adjustments, and then served our grilled meat and veggies on grilled pita bread and ate them like gyros.
And then the hubby bought me a Reese's peanut butter cup blizzard with chocolate ice cream. The End.
