Kitchen QT

Homemade Mayo It felt like forever since I had spent some quality time in the kitchen. I was starting to get cranky. I hadn’t really cooked much, tried new recipes, or had any significant amount of time with food. I needed to change that and quickly.

Last Friday when I got back home after volunteering at the shelter, I spent the rest of the day in the kitchen.

I made some mayo.  Homemade mayo is so much better than store bought and yes there will be a recipe soon!

Veggies for AveryI made some veggies for Avery’s meals.  Very similar to the veggies that I used to make for Rocks.

BBQ SauceI experimented and made some new BBQ sauce.

I also made chocolate chip cookies and banana bread.

Whew!

I also spent time with this punk.

Being able to cook and spend time in the kitchen made a huge improvement on my mood!  This week I plan on making sure that I get even more time in the kitchen cooking up some stuff.

On the dockett for today is beef stock to be used in some shepherd’s pie!

    I could use a day like that – time to prep, cook, bake all the things I would like to for the week. Alas, my next day off with nothing to do is mostly likely in the very distant future. Say…end of June when I finish internship?

    Looking forward to hearing how the mayo turned out. Homemade mayo is on my to try list.
