I'm running ragged and behind on my cooking. Today I went to FOUR grocery stores (and still ended up unexpectedly short a can of pumpkin, see also, my braintwin's finger, three stitches thereon) and also Goodwill ($8 boots! With enormous chunky heels I can walk on! And I can actually zip them up!) and the booze store (lots of cider was acquired).
Things I have done:
--pumpkin filling for dumplings made
--sugar cookies made
--chicken stock and chicken for octopies prepared
--jello skull in the fridge
Things that need to happen tomorrow between when I get up and like, 5-6pm
--laundry (in the interest of having leggings to go with my TOS tunic)
--pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (for which I need more PUMPKIN)
--pumpkin apple soup
--assembly and cooking of pumpkin dumplings (for when I need to sit down?)
--you know I was thinking I was going to unpack clear the table by the door but hahaha.
the good news is it's couple things for stove, a couple things for oven, so it's not going to be vying for time too badly. I think my sequence is going to be:
--when echan wakes up, send her for pumpkin (since SHE wants those cookies!)
--assemble wontons while waiting for pie to finish, and probably after pie is finished
--break for lunch at baja fresh, do car trade with niqaeli
--zoop (is pretty readily reheatable, if it finishes early, which it MAY NOT)
--while zoop simmers away, toast pumpkin seeds and make octopie filling(s)
--pretend there is time for chocolate beetles in here somewhere
--put on a costume
--put octopies in the oven
--fry or steam dumplings
--have some fucking cider
--watch Beetlejuice like a boss
Let me go check my white board...
Okay yeah that's everything. I should get some sleep. Like a boss.
