Another Craving

Does anyone have some deviled eggs sitting around their house? If you do, PUH-LEASE let me know soon so I can come over. I really need to eat some of those right about now.

Marshmallows Roasting on an Open Fire

I have had a major urge to eat roasted marshmallows. I LOVE to roast marshmallows and get them the really pretty brown color... then eat that coating off, then roast the rest of it. Last year I tried roasting marshmallows on one of the burners of our stove. It didn't work out too well.

So does anyone have a decent way to roast a marshmallow inside? I may have to resort to digging a fire pit in my kitchen floor.

Toaster de la Oven

For some time now Daniel and I have had differing opinions on Toaster Ovens. We had a toaster oven in our house grown up, and I think they are pretty useful. Now, by useful I mean I would rather use the toaster oven instead of the real oven when possible... but that's not the point. Daniel thinks they are useless. He sees no point in them whatsoever. If you ask him why we don't have a toaster oven, he will say "We have a toaster, and we have an oven. Why would we need a toaster oven?"
Side note:
We got one for a wedding gift, but Daniel convinced me that we didn't need it. And like a gullible newlywed I gave in to the peer pressure. So we re-gifted it to my mother.

So what is your opinion on the Toaster Oven? Useful or useless? Should I try and win the fight to buy one, or let it go? Will it be useful for preparing food for small children? Or will it end up being one of those kitchen appliances that I use for a week and then it spends the rest of its life cluttering up my kitchen counter? I need feedback people!

As of last Tuesday at 12:25 pm I was officially done working at my former job! Needless to say, I was thrilled and excited and way to many other adjectives to list. Talk about a weight lifted off your shoulders. ANYWAY, I had the rest of the week to myself since I don't start my next job until tomorrow (Monday). So I had THREE whole days to do nothing.
And let me tell you, I didn't do one blasted thing besides eat and watch TV. It was great. But since I was at home all day long by myself for 3 1/2 days I think I am having social withdrawals. We hung out with Steve and Tammi on Thursday and Friday night, so that helped a TON. (coughweneedtodothatmoreoftencough) But now the weekend is almost over. Tomorrow starts anther week. And I am afraid I am going to slip into my anti-socialness yet again. *sigh*

Moral of the story: I have got to hurry up and cram social time in before I have this kid!
