"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

kitchen ban has officially been lifted!

Ok, so it's been quite a while since I was banned from the kitchen...but if I was banned, it would have been lifted by now.  I have been cooking up a storm over the past several days, and no one is complaining!

I made roasted barbeque chicken for dinner tonight, and I baked a crock of baked beans, sliced fresh cucumbers, and even carmelized onions myself!  To top that off, we had freshly squeezed strawberry lemonade and homebaked peanut butter cookies for dessert. 

If I'm not careful, I'll be stuck cooking everyday!

I really don't mind.  It's actually pretty nice to have a home cooked meal, and I think even the teenagers appreciate it.  I know the dogs do!  They have been hanging out under the table waiting for scraps to "fall" from the table into their waiting mouths. 

I haven't planned what I'm going to cook tomorrow, but I imagine I'll have to raise the bar after tonight.  I suspect my family will expect something equally spectacular. 

I could always shake things up a little and make homemade pizza.  Who would expect that?

Not me!

Until the next time...I'll be planning a few meals for the rest of the week!
