Cooking! What Are You Cooking!
I made homemade dinner rolls from scratch and then made ham and cheese sliders out of them - my daughter's favorite recipe. It's not my favorite, but it's kid-friendly, and the homemade dinner rolls bring it up a notch.
Tomorrow (well, now today) is my son's birthday, and he asked for tacos for dinner. I also like to make homemade tortillas, so between that and his cake, it looks like it'll be another busy day in the kitchen.
Today I got two chickens... I'm roasting one of them with rosemary. I gave the other to my neighbor. She's making chicken and dumplings!
Comfort food, anyone?
This was sort of random. But then I email/spoke with Satori... of all things, she mentioned picking up KFC to give to a neighbor who's been having a hard time. What are the odds?
Jowl bacon for BLT's. Refrigerator pickles. I finally have enough tomatoes to can! I cook a lot for my husband who goes out on fishing trips every day. I make lunch for him, and his clients, or sometimes friends. Always with cookies, and usually fresh fruit. Sometimes meat to grill/salad, or chili with toppings, or sandwich and chips. Always homemade dinner with candles too, when he's home. I have a no TV during dinner rule. 🤗 I guess this is what happens when Taurus sun marries Taurus moon.
Indian butter chicken and samosas. I've made butter chicken a few times, but it's been over five years since I last made it. Samosas were new to the menu this time, with homemade dough. It all turned out well, and I realized how my efficiency in the kitchen has improved over the years. Both efficiency and endurance. This meal might become a more regular thing.
I'm making stove-top garlic chicken thighs later with potatoes au gratin. I'm favouring simple, flavourful meals at the moment without too much prep 'cause my mind is elsewhere!
I stayed up late making macarons last night. I had enough egg whites to quintuple my recipe. Big mistake. This is what I do. I take on too much. I do too much. Then I regret it. I need to stop this. But first, macarons. 😋
