    Have you ever looked up from a project and realized most of the day is gone and you haven't even had breakfast yet?

    I'm working on a doll quilt... and it's almost done, which means there are 3 things left to do, which realistically could take up to two more hours. But it's so hard to stop and take a break! So here I am anyway, eating a microwave quesadilla and some oreos (great nutrition, huh? Can you tell I'm going for speed?) so I can get back to work energized.

    I'm like that all the time. Before I realize it, I haven't even had breakfast and it's time to start dinner. Too late for that too, it's a good thing that I have an understanding DH. He doesn't care if I cook or not!!

    I do the same thing. Post a pic of your quilt when you are done.

    Girl Scout cookies and iced tea. A bologna sandwich, with NOTHING but the bread and bologna. Must get back to the sewing room as soon as possible. Yes, I understand.

    Yep! It happens to me all the time. I usually walk out of my sewing room to see my 4 year old still in pj's and a DH that doesn't look very happy with me. I usually don't care though after having spent so much time in my small sanctuary. :P

    Microwave quesadilla? Is this something you buy and just heat or something you're making, and can I get more info (quesadillas are quite popular over here).

    Oh it's just a regular quesadilla, but it's faster to microwave it. I usually make quesadillas on the stove, in a pan with butter and they taste best this way. But the quick way is to just sandwich some shredded cheese between two tortillas and nuke for 1 minute. You can add more to it, of course. Salsa, tomatoes, onions, shredded chicken... but the simplest form is just cheese.

    I usually just put the tortilla right on the grill, then add shredded cheese and taco meat (DH and I both like that combo), no butter (seems fine without it). I'll have to try the nuclear version. ;)

    My sewing room/office is upstairs and I go there when I get up and sometimes don't get downstairs until 11 am or so, so I just eat lunch!
