Hey ho, people! I thought for sure by now I would have had a recipe post published. It’s been a month since I last published a recipe. Even though I do have several drafts waiting, which for some unknown reasons, I just didn’t or couldn’t finish.
And when I looked at them again, somehow I just didn’t think they were good enough. How soon our feelings change in mere weeks. Or should I say, how soon MY feelings change.
And really, how can you fit in blogging when you have to juggle two moms? That’s right, people, I have both my mother and my mother-in-law with me. Together. At the same time. In my house. Sympathize with me, people!
Okay, they’re both nice people and all, but still! I would prefer to have one Mom at a time. That’s just my feelings. But who knows, gimme a couple of weeks of this, I might change my tune.
Beetroot and Dill Houmos from Petra @ Crumbles and Kale
“It was the vibrant colour that first caught my eye. Indeed, we eat with our eyes first. And the dill is just a bonus.” — Aruna
“Is this a dip or dessert?! Won’t matter much to me, actually, since I love both. In fact, I’d be happy if all my meals are made of dips and desserts. And this dip?! Wowee! So gorgeous! I’ll make this, serve it with pride, and demolish all by myself!!” — Angie
Smoky Jalapeño Bacon Dip from Mollie @ The Frugal Hausfrau
“In case you didn’t know, I’m all about dips, people! I’m a Dipaholic and proud to admit it! This dip definitely has me written all over it. Cream cheese… bacon… jalapeño… well, maybe not too, too much jalapeño, but all my favorite flavors are there! I’m going to make this very soon!! And demolish all by myself!” — Angie
Honey Almond Gouda Cheesecakes from Ai @ Ai Made it for you
“I can only imagine how this incredible combo of sweet and savory must dance across the palate. They’re gorgeous, creamy goodness!” — Mollie
Honeysuckle Ice Cream from Hilda @ Along the Grapevine
“I often see ice-cream using exotic flowers, but here’s a lovely one I could make with what I could forage in my own back yard. If you’ve ever tasted honeysuckle’s sweet nectar you can begin to imagine what this must taste like.” — Mollie

Omg, let me check!
Sorry, now it is ok.
Elaine @ foodbod says
Both Mums at once??? You are a saint!
I did say that to my husband! He was like, why are you so tired? So I said, why don’t you try staying home with the two moms and then let me know how you feel at the end of the day. He didn’t say peep after that.
Elaine @ foodbod says
I bet he didn’t!!!!
My hat goes off to you Angie! It is sweet for you to have both of them 😀 Delicious features this week!
They both wanted to be here for my son’s graduation. They did make it special for him. They spoil him!! ?
Angie, I’m sure your hectic time will bring you lots of fond/funny memories for the future. Many thanks for featuring my ice cream and of course for hosting this weekly party.
No problem, Hilda. You always come up with such cool recipes. And useful, too! I haven’t thought about it, but I guess you’re right, we’re creating memories for the young ones. I like the way you think! 🙂
Sarah James @ Tales From The Kitchen Shed says
Hi Angie, you are a busy lady! I hope you get to spend some quality time with both mums. Thanks for hosting x
Thanks, Sarah! I wasn’t sure at first, but I am actually having a little bit of fun with both moms together. Lots of food involved, that’s all I’m saying, lol!!
Julie is Hostess At Heart says
Oh my gosh you have your hands full. I think a lot of people are on hiatus for so many reasons Angie. Enjoy your time with mums1 and 2
Thanks, Julie! The kids seem to be enjoying the grandmas, that’s all that matters, right?! They get absolutely spoiled!!
Julie is Hostess At Heart says
That is a plus Angie!
Justine @ Born and Bred in Brooklyn says
Ah! I know the struggle of having so many posts in drafts and for some reason not posting them, but hopefully we’ll get to see them soon. Also, best of luck with both moms! That sounds like one full house 🙂
I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one, so thanks for letting me know I’m not alone! One day, Justine, I’ll clean everything in my drafts, lol!! It’s a full house alright at the moment, but I’m thankful everybody seems to get along 🙂
Whew; two mommas in one house has gotta be….interesting. Hold on Angie: you can make it 😉
That’s putting it mildly, Jess. Lots of funny moments actually. Including the mommas waking up too early and trying to make coffee and neither could use my coffee maker, OMG!!
Wow Angie, my thoughts are with you! 🙂 Sounds like a busy time!
Thanks, Jenny! Not too bad actually so far. We go out and eat a lot and everybody seems happy! I guess food is always the answer, lol!
You can make it, Angie! 😀 Happy FF and I hope you have a fun weekend!
Thanks for the moral support, Jhuls! I’m hoping this weekend I can cook actually. It calms my nerves actually 😀
Sarah 'n Spice says
Both Moms?! I’ll pray for you 😉 Great features as always and have a fabulous weekend!
Lol, thanks Sarah!! Have a wonderful weekend, darlin!
Angie, my stomach is full now, I can think 😀 Two mom’s under the same roof, it will be a tremendous weekend 😉 Have a wonderful time and Happy Fiesta Friday!
So glad to co-host this week with Margie, a busy weekend for us all! 🙂
Have you had both moms at once, Linda? It sure is quite an experience 🙂 So far so good, I’m happy to say. Thanks for cohosting!! <3
Only once, before my wedding (a long long time ago), and although a nice experience, I think once was enough 😀 Enjoy the rest of your weekend! xx
Oh my… 2 moms at the same time? 😮 good luck! I do hope you can find the time to blog some more recipes because you deserve some relaxing and because I always like your wonderful recipes 🙂 Happy Fiesta! xx
Aaw…you’re so sweet, Sarah! I’ll make sure to post something special for you 🙂 Happy FF!
I can’t wait 😀
Hi Angie, sounds like a busy weekend for you 🙂 How was the graduation? What did your son graduate from?
I’m sorry I’ve been away for a while – I let school take over for a bit plus some other stuff happened which meant cooking was put on the back burner. I know I said I’d help out with co-hosting at some stage so let me know when you want me. July is intense for me but I would be good for June or August.
The features are wonderful as always and I can’t wait to get stuck into this party. The Lemon Cream Cheese stuffed French Toast caught my eye already! x
My son just graduated from high school. It was important enough for both grandmas I guess 🙂 Same here with not having enough time to do everything, so I can relate. Yes, I’ve put down your name as future cohost, Maggie. I have yet to finalize my list but will let you know as soon as it’s done. Have fun at the fiesta! 🙂
I’ve had both moms for a couple days and that was enough. I agree much as they are both nice, it can get a bit much, especially with kids in there too. Oh and my dad 🙂 Good luck to you!
I’ll have them both for a whole week, then mine stays for another week! I have to say they’ve been nice to one another, though, even helping each other. So far, everyone is getting along. Fingers crossed it’ll continue 😀
How fun to have both Moms there, but I get it. I do! And thanks for featuring my Jalapeno Bacon Dip!! Make it. Sneak it somewhere private and have a few minutes of bliss! I have an email coming soon, btw!
Oh you can count on it, Mollie. I’m so making that dip! Looking forward to that email ?
Gerard Villanueva says
Angie, too many chefs in the kitchen! Here’s your chance to relax, let them do all the cooking.
That’s an excellent idea, Gerard! Except I think I’m the better cook, lol. Don’t tell them I said that! ??
Ai | Ai made it for you says
Happy Fiesta Friday! Thank you for featuring my cheesecake!! 🙂
Sounds like you’re having a crazy busy week Angie… two moms at once?! :O
And I totally feel you on feelings toward blog posts changing. I have a couple drafts saved myself that I’m debating whether to publish or not. The cookies I posted on this week’s FF is one of them 😛 haha.
Hope you get some time to yourself to relax!
That’s one heck of a cheesecake, Ai! And unique! I think my daughter would love it so I made sure it got featured, lol. That way I won’t forget ? Now I need to see those cookies!! ??
Wow what stunning features. I decided to share my Harrods food hall visit it was like the old days at Fiesta Friday. I also tried the dictation feature angle it’s not quite as easy as expected either that or I have a weird voice as it kept typing totally random things I wasn’t saying lol. Good luck with two mothers!!! X
I use the dictation only when my hands are occupied doing something else. Otherwise I prefer typing actually. But it works for me. Maybe it’s geared toward American accent. I’m using it right now to make sure it works and it does, lol. I even try to speak really fast and it still works, ha ha. It even does the ha ha. Ha ha! Omg, I’m like a kid with a new toy. I need to stop!
You do realise the first bit that you typed sounded so wrong I won’t even mention wands!!! I am now dictating this and I’m speaking really really slowly like there is something seriously wrong with me oh yes I forgot there is. By the way how do you dictate commas et cetera
??? OMG!! You’re incorrigible! For comma or period etc. you just say comma and it will do it. It would even do exclamation points. You just say “exclamation point” Try it!
thank you Teacher! 😀
Patty Nguyen says
Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie! I hope you’re having fun with your momss!! 😀
Hey, thanks, Patty! I did actually have fun; what a surprise and I’m actually missing MIL who left yesterday. My mom stays for a few more days. The kids I think enjoyed the two grandmas the most ??
I’m the primary carer for my mum, Angie. She cared for me when I was growing up and now it’s my turn. It’s not an obligation or a duty, it’s a priveledge. I know it – most of the time. But some of the time it’s exhausting and it’s stressful. You’re juggling two mums. You need some ‘me’ time, Angie. I’ve arranged one day a week just for myself. I’m just saying. 🙂 hugs, hugs. xx
Thanks, Mary. I guess sometimes I forget I need to take care of myself, too. Thanks for the reminder. But! Summer break starts tomorrow! So I’ll have plenty of time for myself (hopefully) as long as the kids leave me alone! ??
