I cooked all day. Now I need to clean house a little and go work a seven hour shift. I don’t think I’ve ever wished so hard for temporary power outage. Got up too early. Stood all day. Now I go and run around for seven hours. Please send booze. And love. And half naked Damian Lewis. Thank you.
Things I made today: homemade lemon squares (exactly as complicated as ones from a box), chocolate lemon custard pie (homemade, my own creation, hopefully it’s good), roasted beets with garlic and fresh oregano, sausage stuffing, salad dressing (from scratch). Hmm, that doesn’t seem like a lot. I also crushed lots of chocolate for the pie and seeded two pomegranates, went grocery shopping, and collaborated with the lovely neighbor boys about cooking everything else tomorrow (somehow this got me out of having to mash potatoes, awesome!). Still to be made: spinach and pea salad with feta, cornbread stuffing, Yorkshire pudding. Blissfully enough the boys are taking care of everything else (mashed taters, sweet taters, ham, turkey, pork loin wrapped in bacon, soup, green bean casserole and hors d’oeuvres).
I love you all, I hope you have wonderful day tomorrow!! I will be thinking of how thankful I am for your friendship as I stuff my face.
