There’s been little blogging, but. a lot of cooking going on over the last couple of months.
Christmas was a little odd, due to Covid restrictions, but lovely all the same, and it was fantastic to be able to see my parents in person for the first time in literally months.
I’ve started trying to plan my pantry/food storage/menus in a better way, to avoid the regular finding of some random ingredient in the back of a shelf, before sighing and chucking it. I’m not a tall woman, so bits of this were always inevitable, but the reorganisation has helped massively. I’m working on a full month meal plan for March (we get paid by the month) so all the pantry/frozen foods can be picked up in one very focused supermarket trip, then I can top up for bread and veggies at a smaller, nearer store.
I’ve started baking once a week with Boy Wonder, who’s starting to get very insistant about tasting ingredients and who gets to turn the dial on the mixer.
More pans of cinnamon rolls and brownies, cookies out our ears, and quite a few new dinner offerings. My sister in law lives a few minutes drive away and her house has been very appreciative of the regular packages being dropped off. I get to bake, have cake, but not eat ALLTHECAKE.
