I'll let you in on a little secret.... I don't like to cook.
I should as much as I have to do it, but I don't enjoy it. Today though I have done quite a bit of cooking.
For breakfast I made each male child an omelet (Anna just wanted scrambled eggs.) For lunch I made macaroni and cheese and hot dogs (all beef ones!) and for supper I have made a chicken pot pie.
Oh yes, I am a cooking machine.
And so that maybe my kids would pick up a love for cooking we made the 5 minute chocolate cake in a mug. Here is the recipe: 4 T flour
4 T sugar
2 T cocoa
3 T milk
3 T oil
a splash of vanilla extract
Mix in a bowl and then transfer ingredients to a greased coffee mug, microwave for 3 minutes
and you have an oddly shaped chocolate cake. ENJOY!!!
I let each child make his/her very own cake. They loved it! They made a mess, I cleaned it up and they ate their cakes. Such fun for all of us!
I made banana bread Sunday, 2 loaves. From scratch! We also had a roast and potatoes. Last night I made Aunt Janet's famous sweet and sour chicken, it was delicious!!!!!!!! I had Stephen stop at the chinese restaurant and pick up egg rolls and rice.
I can't do it all people!!!!
For tomorrow night I have already boiled chicken and made my own broth so that we can have a yummy chicken tortilla soup.
Am I on a cooking roll (HA, a roll! I wonder if it is hot and buttered?) or what?
So, what are ya'll cooking?
