Well...I'm no expert and I don't really have any particular specialty, but I hold my own on the basics! And this past Sunday I was a domestic goddess! I feel a little silly posting about food, but I was so productive in the kitchen on Sunday and I'm trying to post more regularly so here goes...
It started by making lunches for Doug and his friend, Ron who were working on painting a commercial building on a Sunday morning (no tennants at that time of the week). Delivered to them at 10:00 a.m. because when you start your work day @ 5:00 a.m. you are starving by 10!Then my dear father-in-law called to say he wandered if I'd like to sew some sheets for him ('nother story for another time) and make him lunch. Sure, Dave, I'd love to!
Then I made a mini-meatloaf for Doug to take with him to Flagstaff ~ he's painting a cabin for a client and will be there all week (looks kinda' gross uncooked, and it's ground turkey so it looks really bland, but the picture had to be included...).
Then I made a batch of chili because hunting season is coming up and it freezes and travels well and is easy to heat up on a camp stove at the end of the day. (No, I don't hunt, but hubby digs it!) And cornbread to go with:
And chocolate and butterscotch chip cookies (also for the Flagstaff trip). Phew. My feet hurt at the end of the day -- and I think every dish in my kitchen had to be washed in the end! Doug will be in Flagstaff all week and I just might have a bowl of cereal every night for dinner this week!
Yeh, I earned my wife points today! This man is worth it! He works hard and takes such good care of Carrie and me. xoxox to you, Doug!
