So far, this little experiment is not only fun but is already yielding unexpected benefits:
1) An excuse to catch up with friends for dinner– did I mention I LOVE throwing dinner parties
2) A way to occupy myself while I’m in between paying gigs- a lot more entertaining than some of the alternatives….
Dusting off randomly picking up a cookbook, opens up so many more options for what to cook for dinner…. Thanks to my current position of being “job challenged”, I actually do have time to cook fun and complex dinners at night– except for Mondays and Tuesdays when I go to “dance” classes.
I’m the first to admit, I should be doing more baking and cooking while I’m not working, although considering I’m supposed to be gluten-free and with summer coming, I’m not sure having loads of tempting, tasty, gluten filled baked goods in the house is the right plan…. However, I digress. The Runner was clearly not impressed with his toasted sandwich for dinner last night because this morning I awoke to find Apples for Jam open on the counter. The Runner swears he was only “flicking through the book” and “wasn’t sure what page he left it on”, however I will take the not so subtle hint and make the man his Spaghetti with Egg and Toasted Parsley Breadcrumbs for dinner!
