the oven and my nemesis
i don't remember the last time i turned on my oven on. i have only used the stovetop three times in the past two weeks. mostly, i have been cooking dinner like it is 1995...on my george forman grill, in the crockpot and in the toaster oven. i long to turn my oven on to make some pie. but i refuse to do such a thing to myself when it is 100 degrees outside. so what have i been cooking? among others: sausage & peppers, grilled zucchini ribbon salad, pasta carbonara, cheeseburgers, sausage stuffed swiss chard, kielbasa with latkes and shrimp tarragon rolls. only a couple more days and the heat wave will be broken. hopefully. it brings some rain. the corn needs it. i need it. i got big plans to do some breakfast freezer cooking. breakfast and i have been fighting lately. i cannot bear to make anymore eggs for hendrix, but i have no backup plan. if i don't have a plan, then i turn hangry. hangry is a condition where mommy turns crazed and angry with hunger right around 10 am. it's not pretty. however, the last two mornings i have made breakfast grilled cheese. cream cheese, berries, a drizzle of honey on wheat bread grilled on....you guessed it! the george foreman. what do ya'll eat for breakfast?
