...this cooking dinner every night is hard work. I've always worked outside the home and am fortunate enough to have a hubby that likes to cook..and shop..and build...
And I have, through the years, on occasion, albeit very rarely, enjoyed cooking a new recipe..or something fancy for a dinner party.
I was like, "OK, that was fun - been there, made it, move on....I'm sooo done"
But now that I'm between jobs, I feel it is a help to Mr. B to cook. And shop. And I'm thinking it soo not fun...
However, yesterday, between episodes of Judge Alex and Judge Judy (I listen to those to re-affirm that I am not all that disfunctional...) I caught an episode of Paula Deen...you know...."Butter is our frieeeend!"
And I actually tried 2 of them....one a main dish and one a dessert.
The main dish was...OK..actually good, but for a "from scratch version of Hamburger Helper" it was a LOT of work..and a LOT of messy dishes and pans.
As for the dessert...YUM-O doesn't due it justice. If I could live on dessert (...wait..you're saying I can't??)..this one would be in my repertoire.
Banana Split Cake (but it's more like a square pie..)
Both recipes can be found on her site or just let me know and I'll email them to you.Well, how's that workin' for ya? I just found out I have to do this all over again tomorrow!!
OK, OK, so we have to eat every day, I get it....
I'm taking my garlic-smelling fingers and my onion-tear-stained face and my dishwater dry hands and going to bed..thank goodness Mr. B doesn't "do" breakfast!
