Not my day in the kitchen.

Today’s been a long day, you guys. My kitchen’s a mess. Which, on the one hand, is good because it means I’ve been DOING THINGS! On the other hand, though, it means a lot of cleaning.

Thus, I’m glad to soon be leaving the kitchen to go play games with Bill and some of his co-workers. Not that I don’t enjoy cooking, but today I’ve dropped things, spilled things, forgotten ingredients and so forth. It’s not been an easy day in my kitchen.

However, all that said, I did want to send out a “hello”. A quick list of some recipes you’ll be seeing posts about soon: banana bread, turnip greens, chocolate cake, potato and bean gratin, brussels sprouts with bacon, port-braised onions and stuffed mushrooms (the last two you already knew about, but still haven’t seen).

I’ve been really enjoying all this futzing around in the kitchen, and trying to make a menu and get cooking, I have to say. Some days, though, it takes a lot more than other days.

And I just remembered I need to vacuum seal some ribeye steaks. Hope I can remember how to work the food sealer.
