15 August 2005

I might be great tomorrow, but hopeless yesterday...

Since it is the 15th of August, I thought this would be a good time to take account of what I want to accomplish for the rest of the month. This is my list of 10 things I must do before August is over.
10. Enroll my son in some toddler program.
9. Go see the Peter Sellers exhibit at Rockefeller Center.
8. Rip up hideous purple carpet in bedroom.
7. Move computer downstairs.
6. Send book off to publishing company.
5. Figure out party theme for son's 3rd birthday next month.
4. Sell more items on Ebay.
3. Work/finish project for husband.
2. Cook better meals.
1. Appreciate the fine combination of gin and tonic.

Hey thanks acumamakiki!
Amy's Kitchen makes a fortune off of our family. My cooking all depends on the kind of day I've had, but I shouldn't be so selfish. I just need to plan better.

I say just throw something like chicken breasts in the oven early. Cooked before you know it. Then you can: Toss the meat into broth and veggies for stew w/dumplings, maybe pot pie or add to pasta sauce or just serve with rice or baked or roasted potatoes...add to cream sauce with peas and serve over egg noodles...hmm...i know there's lots more...make chick salad with the meat, cooked bacon tomatoes mayo and serve over lettuce...

Just get something cooked and ready for around fiveish.

(the hardest thing is just getting something cooked.)then you can decide how to finish it later.

Lauren-You are such a dear sweet lady, and oh so very helpful too. But alas, we do not eat meat, fish and tofu are our mainstays.
You are so kind and so clever. I wish I had your sensibilties in the kitchen!
