chief cook and bottlewasher

Actually, that title is untrue; I am the chief cook and Ted is the bottlewasher. Since I’m at home now, I have taken on the cooking, shopping and housekeeping duties. (Previously we split the cooking and we’ve had a housekeeping service for the last fifteen years of so.) It has some odd side effects; for instance, this morning I didn’t start work on my book (research, today) until 11AM and it felt like I was goofing off, but in that time I cleaned both bathrooms, mopped the kitchen floor, and worked out. That shouldn’t count as slacking!

Anyway, I’ve been doing a lot more elaborate cooking, since i’ve had time to do it and shop for ingredients. I’ve created a page for dinners we’ve had (at least, the ones that are worthy of note) and ideas for things to make in the future. You can see it there in the left sidebar of my main site. When recipes are online I’ve added a link, and I’ve noted changes I made. This is intended mostly for me, to remember what worked and to keep notes, but if anyone else is interested, it’s there. Questions and suggestions are welcome (for instance, I didn’t link to a chili recipe because it’s something I’ve been making for years, but I can give one if wanted).

    Your list is nudging me to consolidate mine — right now my to-cook-soon and to-cook-someday and think-of-something-to-do-with-this-stuff-I-didn’t-get-around-to-cooking-on-the-day-I-meant-to lists are scattered across multiple scraps of paper and multiple Workflowy entries. (Finally getting around to stuffed peppers tonight! Which began as a “there’s still tomato sauce left, and I already froze it once” item…)
