October 18th~ a day to cook

Friday, October 18, 2019

I usually do food prep for the week on Sunday but got in a mood to DO. I had a new recipe for pork and cheese enchiladas ..so set out to prepare those. and while pork was cooking I chopped up a weeks worth of salad and crisp snacks. Then discovered a recipe for Ginger-Pumpkin muffins..those will be created in the AM. I had never made enchiladas this way before..I just "did it" before. This time I actually followed a recipe..there were way too many bowls dirty !! However they say a good cook never leaves a clean dish or pan in the place. Man I must be the Martha Stewart of my house!!
Enchiladas turned out good..tasty a bit different than my usual and I am not sure I will make again. My way is quicker , easier and less mess, yet just as tasty. But I do love trying new recipes!! I have a collection of printed off..made once never to be made again recipes. For my DIL, Tammy's birthday I searched out a neat chocolate cake with strawberry filling and deep fudge icing. Now that is one that I will NEVER make again. It was so rich we needed to take it to town and pass out pieces ! Almost like fudge, could only eat one small piece!!
Some one suggested I open a bakery or advertise baked goods..but then it wouldn't be fun..it would be a have to. I did enough years of have to..I wanna stick with fun now!
Speaking of fun..I think it would be fun to kick back with a cuppa tea and read for a bit!
Nite ya'al ...enjoy your weekend!! Gonna be a cool, windy possibly snowy one for us!

    I love to cook but like you I would not want to do it for a job that would take the fun right out of it. I will work hard for friends and family and put in hours that would never be worthwhile to me for strangers!

    You gave me a good laugh! Martha Stewart then, ha ha ha! I wish I live nearby your home because Ginger-Pumpkin muffins it's like a dream come true for me. I'd be there for breakfast! I'll bring coffee and tea. I think you want to get rid of me as in killing me? Chocolate cake with strawberry filling and deep fudge icing? Really, I'm totally drooling (sorry) emoticon Enjoy your evening (I'm going to try to erase all those mental pics of Katie's Bakery).
