So I'm sitting here staring at my computer screen, screaming mini food critic on my lap, thinking I have no idea what I'm doing here.

So starting at the start, all my friends wanted my recipes so shazzies cookbook started on facebook.  Its still there but while I'm sitting at my computer yesterday, grandchildren free ( I babysit 4 days a week, weekends included, every 2nd Saturday off) I see something about blogging, and here I am. I  think  "I can do this".  We shall see.

So (apparently my favourite word) instead of cooking tea for everyone,  I'm sitting here putting all my recipes that I took pictures of from the beginning of April on here.

Looking at the time I realize that its later than I think and so the rush begins.

I start to make the lemon cupcakes and find I have no lemons so the man of the house gets sent out shopping.

Waiting for he who seems to take forever, I add a few more recipes to the list.  That's done, he's back, so into the kitchen I go.

I whip up the cupcakes, cook the meat sauce for the mexican lasagne while the cakes cool, then that done I finish off the cakes.

I just think to myself "coffee" and the first of the family arrives.  Damn its nearly tea time, I have to put the lasagne together and get it into the oven.  So (favourite word yet again) make daughter in law a cup of tea, forgot about my coffee, and throw the lasagna together and push it into the oven.  Sigh of relief cos its in on time.

Rest of family arrives,  lasagnas ready,  a  few potato wedges with it. Done.  yummm.
Sit them all down with food and I rush back into the kitchen to get banana toffee dessert made and into the oven.  That's done, I go eat my tea then back to kitchen to make the butterscotch sauce. Easy peasy.
Back to table, clear table of dishes, replace with more dishes for dessert, which is placed in middle of table and left because "'I'm so full mum"  from he who ate the rest of his wife's  lasagna.  But then he eats not only one piece but two because "its really yummy mum"

The cup cakes hit the table, and "I'm so fulls" voice mutters" tea was good  but what happened to the cupcakes, they don't look like butterflies ".  I was in a rush  so maybe a bit rough around the edges
 but the mini food critic thought they were good.

So all in all another successful Saturday night, all that's left is to clean up the mess and relax. Oh and add the recipes to shazzies cookbook lol.

Is this what blogging's all about?  Hope so.

See you next Saturday.
