This Week's Food Waste
We were the lucky recipients of tomatoes recently from my father-in-law. However, one of them didn't make it longer than a day before it turned black. The rest will become part of some pasta sauce tomorrow. (At least that's the plan.)
This Week's True Food Confessions
|Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies|
My confession for this week is that I am really messy in the kitchen. Messy, as in, food on the ceiling messy. While I'd like to say that when I cook, I measure carefully, clean as I go, and never spill anything, I really can't. Mostly I'm good, but sometimes things get away from me. When I was a kid, my sisters teased me about how messy I was when I cooked and that annoyed me. Just because the pressure cooker blew its safety valve and its contents all over the walls and ceiling during my watch didn't necessarily mean that I was messy.
However, maybe there was some truth in what they said. I do knock things over more than I would like and sometimes I do something really stupid like I did last night. While using our portable mixer, the cord came out. Instead of turning it off and plugging the cord back in, I just plugged it back in. Of course, that immediately started the beaters, which were out of the bowl, and caused butter and eggs to fly everywhere--all over the counters, the walls, me, and yes, some on the ceiling. Boy, did I feel foolish. And boy, I did I have a big mess to clean up. However, I was able to finish the dish, pumpkin-chocolate chip cookies. At least that's what they started out to be. Recipe coming soon for this delicious treat.

I really have to start taking more pictures of our food because our eating is getting fuzzy in my mind. It's hard to be accountable when you're not paying attention. Need to nip, nip it in the bud. (Does anyone remember Barney Fife saying that?)
Until next week...
