It is truly amazing what all you can get accomplished trying to avoid the one thing you need to do the most. I know I have a beautiful laundry room that I am super proud of, but that doesn’t mean that I have to like laundry. In fact, it is something that I actually greatly dislike. Earlier this week I had about four (to five) loads of laundry that made their way from the dryer to the folding table, then to the basket still unfolded to make room for another unfolded load, etcetera, etcetera. The basket of unfolded clothes as well as the other unfolded loads made their way up to our room, where I proceeded to dump it all on the bed as a threat to myself that I couldn’t get in my bed until they were folded; however, my threat was empty and they ended up on the floor, which in turn got mixed in with some dirty clothes and, in turn, all had to be washed again.
I took the day off earlier this week, so that I could accomplish “some things” around the house, the main one being the four (to five) loads of unfolded laundry, but found about a thousand other things to do instead as usual. One of those many things was to get invites out for an upcoming sip and see I am hosting with a group of friends, so I called one of the other hostesses to come over and help me assemble the invitations and promised lunch. Since I was so busy not doing laundry, I knew I had to come up with something quick. Not sure why BLT sandwiches were on the brain……probably because they are guuuudd!!!, so that’s what I decided to go with. I had a couple of challenges, though, because I needed to make it gluten-free for my friend and because I’m not too fond of mayonnaise except in the most perfect of conditions, I swapped the bread for gluten-free rigatonni and mayonnaise for Laughing Cow Light French Onion Wedges. Mary loved it and so did i!! It had the classic flavors of a BLT, but with a few adjustments was even better (or at least I think so). As for the laundry, I finally put it all away (three days later), but the little trolls that show up at night and wear all of our clothes paid us yet another visit and now I am back up to a few loads that need to be folded and put away. The fun never ends in the world of laundry!
