I don't cook.

You know how I'm always saying I don't cook? It's because I don't. Except when I do. It happens about once a year. Celebrating Jared's birthday with both families and Mother's Day tend to overlap, so I end up cooking. Twice. In one weekend. Then I need a year to recover. Let's examine how this went this past weekend in timeline/Instagram form:

Friday afternoon: already worried about dinner Saturday night. Coordinating margarita plans with my sister via text.

Friday night - 10pm: haven't finished the mexican chicken casserole, just started the cheesecake, am tempted to break into the Jose.

Middle of Friday night - cheesecake is out of the oven. Doesn't look right. I still have to babysit the damn thing for 3 more hours. This happens every year. Why am I so bad at time management? 

Who the hell knows what time it is - if I'm up for several more hours, I'm painting my nails. Apparently I want to look like Barbie. 

...and then that's it. I gave up, put it in the fridge around 3 or 4 am, and prayed for the best. It was fine. It always is. 

How was your weekend?

Cracking up–cheesecake is pretty advanced stuff for someone who never cooks! But it looks beautiful, and I'm sure it was delicious!

Hooray! I'm so glad it turned out okay.
