As the withcing hour approaches, I thought I'd best pop in for a short version of my Saturday... I realize that this is day 1 of the 3 day weekend, but as we have no plans at all - that I'm aware of... and finding that I had the house to myself for a
few hours, the crazykitchen beckoned.
I began with a batch of refrigerator roll dough. Once it was set aside to do it's thing, I set about the meat for WC burgers. By slightly adjusting the proceedure, that portion ran smooth as silk!
I thus far always seem to miss the boat by a few seconds, or something, when it comes to baking bread... The doz. that emerged from the oven were fine... but there's "something" about them... While they are quite airy, they're at the same time somewhat dense,
or doughy. Well, I've never claimed to be a breadmaker! Perhaps with time and practice, I'll be able to sort things out, or at least produce what I will triumphantly announce - WONDERFUL! Perhaps time to ditch that cookbook, and try some other recipes!
My next order of business was to make a batch of Hot Fudge Sauce to douse over the super cheap ice cream I recently bought.
When it all came together, as we were ready, it was yummilicious start to end!
Once the meal was over, I folded up as a tire loosing air... I'd not slept well Fri night, and per my usual, ran full tilt all day - for me anyway! After catching my chin wanting to hit my chest a few times, I relented, stretched out, and relaxed... May
well have dozed off, but the nice thing for me with this type of catnap is that I still hear much of the audio of the tv... or I think I do! 30 mins seemed to help immensely, so off I went again!
I was quite pleased this afternoon while searching for SOMETHING on the idiot box that I'd not seen 5 times in the past two weeks, when totally by accident I discovered a movie running from 10pm till 12:30am, titled "The Thomas Crown Affair." Of late, Ive
caught the end a number of times, but this time I would have the privilege of seeing the entire show. Now 45 mins from the end, I'm enjoying it as much as the first time! I've also not been overly distracted this time around, which of course helps!
Tomorrow, I believe pork chops, corn on the cob, and perhaps a tossed salad rather than spuds or rice... I doubt there will be any argument regardless... I'm also hoping to freeze some of the burgers, thinking toss into micro, and have a yummy snack now and
Be healthy, be happy, be crazy! Enjoy your weekend!
