We are struggling to keep up with the little ones while getting very little sleep. We went from a cold a few weeks ago straight into a growth spurt. Nathaniel has gained more than a pound and a whole lot of development–but he is also not sleeping more than a couple of hours at a time at night. Katherine has grown, too, with dresses that were mid-calf now just touching the tops of her knees. And now both kids have sniffles that are affecting their sleep.
Since my eyes balk at screens and books right now and neither Sydney nor I has the mental power for any big thoughts, work has slowed to a crawl.
Not that interesting of news, I know, which is why things have been quiet.
This evening I decided, on a whim, to try making peshwari naan, my favorite Indian flatbread, with coconut and raisins in the middle. I had assumed you needed a big clay tandoor and all sorts of fancy equipment. Turns out all you need is some flour and a super-hot oven. So now I have a big stack of oddly shaped naan ready to be heated up for company tomorrow evening. And, despite the frustrations of trying to cook with two little critters who only seem to need something once my hands and arms are full of flour, I’m quite happy that I managed to reproduce one of my favorite foods. It really does taste like the ones I’ve had in restaurants!
