Default What did you do in the kitchen today? - Not incldng. tonight's meal.

09/21/2011

Thought I'd start a new thread, as I've been pealing and prepping garlic for a couple hours now and was thinking of all we do beside cooking.
1 head got minced
1 head got chopped
1 head got sliced
1 head got pealed & kept whole
3 heads got roasted with alittle lite V.O.O., then cooled.

All placed in small jars and put on the door of my freezer.

Prepped 10 chicken thighs, 6 stalks of celery, 1 lb. bag of carrots, 2 onions, 1/2 bunch of fresh parsley to cook late tonight, or tomorrow a.m. for soup.
1/2 given to the neighbor, the rest to be divided for me & the pooch.
He gets his drained of broth, then rough blended with some brown rice cooked in some broth & added. Mine I'll either make tubatinni, or ditalinni to add.

Cleaned up, and all the while the W & D did 2 loads; the machines are in a built-in "closet" off the kitchen.

Now I'm looking for something else to do in the kitch.
(I feel alot more productive today than yesterday.)

What else are YOU doing in the kitch. today? Cleaning window coverings, floors, cleaning out cabinets/pantry, re-arranging things - no remodels posted here though-go to HOUSE forum for those, please.

I've been out of town for several days, so I've been sorting through a giant pile of mail on the kitchen counter.

I exploded a bowl of oatmeal in the micro this morning after getting back from the gym. Yeah I know, I didn't watch it. That was a nice mess to clean up. Good thing I at least put a paper towel over it.

Nah. I've been up since around 6. Peeling and that is sit-down work with the 'puter & TV on. And the machines do all the cleaning. I love machines!

I used to love to spend days in my kitchen chopping and tweeking, but alas not lately. Today, I popped an English muffin in the toaster, and fed the dogs. Then, off I went.

Over all a pretty boring day in the kitchen:
Brewed a pot of coffee, packed the kids' lunches, nuked a lean cuisine, fed my dogs, wrapped some meat for the freezer, scrubbed the stove..

Will start on dinner soon, that should be more interesting.

just made a quick breakfast and then got a salad ready to take to our bridge luncheon. I just got home from that a few minutes ago.
