Man PMS!!! Funny.
Sorry 'bout your day Jessica but maybe things will get better.
I did learn to make caramel sauce thanks to the internet, so I suppose I can do a reduction. I hope.
I did a CocaCola reduction once for a BBQ glaze and it was delish! One thing about reducing soda is to not bring it to a boil, or cook it over too high heat, because it will start to foam up too much. Use a large pan and start with medium heat; it's easier to bump the heat up a bit if needed than to come back down. Before you begin, put the same measurement of water that you want to end up with into the same pan, so you can more accurately "eyeball" the measurement. When it gets close, watch it carefully because it seems like it goes faster at the end. If you reduce it a bit too much, but it's not burned, you can simply add a bit more water to it to bring it up to the correct amount. Because that's all you're doing is boiling off the water. Good luck!

Laurie that sounds delicious! I don't like to bake but I do it maybe once a week. I do love to cook, I find things on pinterest occasionally.
We had WILD weather this morning. It was black out on my way to the gym with wicked lightening and down pouring rain. It stopped now and thankfully play has resumed at the US Open. I had the best dance class this morning. I started going to this class called "dance party" twice a week after I broke my hip and it is just so much freaking fun. I am by no means a good dancer but it doesn't matter ~ It is 60 minutes of pure fun, I swear I have a huge grin on my face the entire time. Dancing is amazingly good exercise.
I JUST FOUND MY WALLET!!!! YAY!!!! I am so relieved! And luckily the only things I had ordered were my credit and bank cards, cause I needed to use them for ID to get my drivers license and care card done. I still have no money cause those ones havent come yet, but I am so happy all mine and the kids ID is not floating around out there in the world right now. Time to clean all those things out of my wallet I think. It was tucked under the back seat in the car. We had looked under the seat, but it was on the other side of the rail. I set things down in that area all the time to buckle kids in, and today my keys slipped under a bit. When I went to get them....YAY!!!! I'm sure the other parents at preschool pick up now think I am crazy, after my solo happy dance in the parking lot. The kids thought it was pretty funny though
