Honey is out camping at a church men’s retreat. I use the word camping lightly since he is staying at the conference center and sleeping in a real bed in a climate controlled room. Still, they cooked over an open fire tonight, are roasting marshmallows etc., and fishing, hiking and more are planned for tomorrow. Whatever – the main point is that I was home in quiet all evening this evening!
I decided to ditch the drawer and do so much more! My friend Amy inspired me to multitask in the kitchen AND I have a few crafty projects that need work so I got to it. . .
First I plopped the last 2lbs of ground beef from our cow into a pan to brown and set about creating two quiches to cook.
All of this was in the hour before dinner. I would have gotten more done but the pepper pan slipped in the freezer and dumped the peppers all over and I had to clean them up wash them off and “start again”.
After the kids went to bed I mixed up a batch of Jumbo Breakfast Cookies and while they cooked I sewed casings for elastic in the Bubba’s halloween costume, started KB’s birthday tshirt, and hunted down my rotary cutter.
