I work about an hour from home, so when I get home, we turn on the tunes, pour a glass of wine, fire up the oven and play doggie obstacle course in the kitchen. Time to RELAX. Some of our kids are older, some still young, we never know who's going to be home for dinner until I get there and I never know what's for dinner until it's on the table.
My favorite things to cook
I cook a lot of chicken. Our kids are all picky - they each like something different, so I try to make something each of them will like and chicken usually covers it. I don't have a lot of time to bake, but would like to. I always plan to make a pot of soup or stew on Sundays so everyone can pick at it through the week - but by Sunday, it's usually just a really good thought - never quite makes it to the stove.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dancing in the kitchen with my husband while dinner simmers.....
My cooking triumphs
Murder Mystery Dinners - love to have a group of friends over and cook for them. That is showing the love, baby.
My cooking tragedies
Have to think about that one....
