Before we actually begin cooking (read post before this one for details) here are some images of our prep. These are mental images to psych me up. Ya’know the see it, be it stuff?
Now considering that I had questionable material in my fridge, some dating back to early 2000’s (yikes!) a clean out was in order….
And now, da, da, da, dannnnn….for the first baking project….something simple….
We have also made: Chicken Panini Sandwiches, Buffalo Chicken Pizza and Chocolate cake. Hubs is in heaven. He is in bed right now dreaming of sugar plums while they dance in his head. The boys are satisfied and have gorged themselves on their sister’s masterpiece of moist, chocolate heaven. And you know what? It wasn’t that bad. A Tylenol and Motrin cocktail bolus pre-cooking experience seemed to hold off any creeping pain and my daughter was a hu-mungo help.
Time will tell. In the mean time the family is enjoying the meals and are without a doubt our loudest cheerleaders.
