Thank GOD E enjoys - or at least doesn't MIND cooking, otherwise we'd be a pretty lean couple!
I've recently started really digging into the "house-wivery" - I made a chicken and pasta dish the other night that rivals first class restaurants! (no pics, but it was a cream-based pink sauce with chicken and penne - it was so freaking yummy, it's on my favorite recipes list...)
and ok, so yes - I cheated JUST A LITTLE BIT. I used one of these suckers...
But I still added the fresh chicken, and fresh tomatos and fresh cream!
Admit, it's a long way from Kraft mac'n'cheese! E was very proud!
So I'm embracing this house-wife stuff and getting ready to host the inlaws for Easter - it's going to be 11 people... *gulp*
I hosted last year, but had my mom visiting (from TX) to help prepare my first big meal of ham and all the fixings... Last year was also the announcement (at 6 weeks! oh the naivety) of our first pregnancy... So this year is different in a few ways...
So, I've added to my
(What usually happens is I get bored at work, flip through The Craft To-Do List and go - OH CRAP! I wanted to do that at Easter a month ago! dammit!)
Here's the plan:
I'm making blown-out (is that the term? like a hair blow out? lol) eggs this year for the table!
And then I'm making paper-mache nests for those awesome malt-ball robins' eggs!*
*Ok so to be realistic, we'll see on this paper mache... Easter is in about 9 days... But these will make good projects to work on while E is upstairs working on the bathroom!
