Update, mostly food

I was trying to remember what I cooked on what days last week.

Tuesday: I was to rushed to make a dish to bring over to B&K's. But I did bring left over spaghetti and meatballs for lunch, so when queenmabwords took me out to lunch I saved my S&M for dinner.

Wednesday: I meant to cook but took a nap instead. kenshardik ordered pizza.

Thursday: Ithaca Fest Parade. Spent way to much money, Zoupworks for lunch and dinner. Hung out with B&K afterward, didn't get home till 10:30 at least.

Friday: First attempt at cooking like my mother. Fried turkey sausage, steamed carrots, sauteed red cabbage w/ vinegar and brown sugar, Orrecchiette "Ear shaped" noodles.

Saturday: Fast Chili - (Pre-cooked hamburger, chili beans (15oz), pinto beans(15oz), corn (15oz), tomatoes (28oz)) served with shredded cheddar cheeze and saltines. (I was going to make salad but I was to tired)

Sunday: Ginger beef (w/ onions, broccoli, corn & red pepper) sauteed in sesame oil and soy sauce. Served with rice and green salad (romaine, iceberg & red cabbage).

This morning I put a pork roast in the crock pot with a jar of raspberry jam. I will serve it with rice, and maybe squash and green salad.

I thought I did very well getting out the door in a timely manner this morning. I cleaned the cat boxes, swished the toilet bowl, packed the garbage out of the bathroom, checked my e-mail, made my protean shake, cleaned the blender, started dinner, and packed lunch. Then my container of left over chili opened up in my bag on my walk in from Kaaren's and I spent the first 10 minutes at work cleaning my stuff.

Lordy!

How do you find the time! I barely have enough time to dip my raman in hot water. I haven't "cooked" anything real in months and months.

Re: Lordy!

It's funny, I couple of weeks ago I would have said I don't have the time.

I talked to my mom about how to plan meals. And worked out a couple of tricks to speed things up.

Orrecchiette "Ear shaped" noodles.(Fill med pan with water, turn on stove)
Fried turkey sausage (open package and put in frying pan with a little water, turn on stove)
Steamed carrots (open package and put in small pan with water, turn on stove)
Sauteed red cabbage w/ vinegar and brown sugar, (put cast iron frying pan on stove over low heat, chop one med onion, chop 1/2 head of red cabage. Put a little oil in pan. Put in onion, cabage, salt & pepper. By now the water for the pasta is boiling so I put the pasta in the water and wait. every once in a while I stir the cabage. After a while I decided the cabage needed something so I put in some vinegar and brown sugar.)

It didn't take me any longer to do all that then to to just cook the sausage.

Saturday: Fast Chili - (Pre-cooked hamburger, chili beans (15oz), pinto beans(15oz), corn (15oz), tomatoes (28oz)) served with shredded cheddar cheeze and saltines. (Open cans and empty contents into pot. Add Sofrito, pre-cooked hamburger from freezer, and spices. Turn on stove and wait.

rice (put on 4 cups of water to boil)
Ginger beef (put on cast iron frying pan with sesame oil, on low heat. Thinly slice beef and onion. Dump in pan and stir. Add a couple of slices of ginger pickeled in sherry (I always store my fresh ginger in a jar of sherry in the fridge), some soy sauce and a bag of frozen veggies - onions, broccoli, corn & red pepper) (put the rice in the boiling water)
green salad (while things are cooking slice up some veggies for salad) (romaine, iceberg & red cabbage).

Put pork roast in the crock pot with a jar of raspberry jam and 1/2 cup of water. Cover and set on low. Go to work.

*sniffle*

I stayed home again today, attempting to truly kill this damned cold I picked up. I napped twice during the day - once "officially" with the CPAP and once just dozing on the sofa.

The bathroom is gorgeous. I particularly liked the swished toilet. :)

Hopefully I will feel obligated to be tidier as well.
