So, what does one do when it’s just too cold to go out and about on a Sunday? One cooks!
Hubby and I worked in the kitchen for a couple hours chopping, slicing, browning, caramelizing, stirring, frying and voila’ …. we had our meals all set to go for the week.
We started with a pot of sauce and meatballs to go along with our ravioli for Sunday dinner. Mmmmm, there’s nothing like the smell of onions and garlic sauteing in some olive oil to get those gastric juices flowing.
And boy did that hit the spot and warm our innards. Love the crock pot for soups.
Wednesday will be pasta primavera so there really isn’t much to do ahead of that except have the veggies ready. And then Thursday we will have our choice of leftovers.
Of course, after all that prepping and cooking, there was a lot of clean-up but it sure is worth the time so that when we get home from work, dinner is very quickly on the table.
After cooking, I headed up to the Sewing Studio and worked on my lattice quilt for a while
After that, we watched Saving Mr. Banks. Really enjoyed that movie. I was singing “Let’s Go Fly A Kite” in my head all day today. 🙂 Rounded out the day by watching Friday’s episode of Blue Bloods and then Downton Abbey.
And so, that’s what one does when it’s too cold to go out and about on a Sunday. At least that’s what this one does.
See you soon.
