Eating out is one of my least favorite things to do and when we’re traveling, you know how it is . . breakfast, lunch and dinner out. Since we were gone 6 days, that translates to 18 meals, but thankfully, new friends invited us over for dinner one night and we got one home cooked meal. It was delicious and so much appreciated! Even though the hotel provided a continental type breakfast and I ate a Texas waffle one morning, the rest of the morning I had a Pop-Tart that I had brought from home.
This morning when I woke up, I couldn’t wait to cook a home cooked meal and spend some quality time in my kitchen!
I took cookie dough out of the freezer and made cookies. They were almost all gone in a flash!
Then I made bread.
Tomorrow is Sunday so you know that means spaghetti and meatballs. Thank goodness there were meatballs in the freezer, though I’m afraid they were the last ones and I am not making more before we go.
One of my favorite meals is steak with rice and gravy so I browned some steak and then cooked it in the pressure cooker and added a can of cream of mushroom soup for the gravy.
With that, we had rice, Veg-All Casserole and black bean salad. Doris had fixed black bean salad when we ate with them on Thursday night and I kept wishing I had more of it so I made a batch of it today.
That’s it . . I’ve had my cooking fix and can go back to packing and cleaning.
