I wasn't sure what to write about this evening. It's been sort of a blur. You know from my last post that I have company for a few days. We had a nice evening. I decided to go ahead and do some prep work for tomorrow night's dinner. So, I peeled 10 pounds of potatoes to go with the 5 pound roast. Before you think I am having 20 people over- don't fret- just six folks that like a lot of leftovers. Mom-in-law has already mentioned a doggie bag. I'll give her one after we pass the hat!
So, I was wondering tonight about the little things that I caught myself doing in the kitchen. In my family we have a strict rule that when you peel and cut up a potato you MUST cut yourself a slice, smather it in salt and enjoy! Are we the only ones that do this? I remember being little and waiting with my brother in the kitchen for my slice of raw potato. Oh, it's the best. I know Mom still does it too.
Then Betty and I did some cooking. No, not my mother-in-law. I am referring to Ms. Crocker. She bakes with me a lot. Tonight- vanilla cake a la box with buttercream icing. So, this leads to another MUST in my family which I know you all do- licking the bowl. Come on, I know you do it. The beaters too, admit it. You might even just scoop out a spoonful when no one is looking. Hey, at least I am not using my finger! Tonight I shared all this with dear hubby and his face lit up like a 5 year old. Nothing better.
Well, I guess I should have been taking pictures in the kitchen tonight. Sorry, Betty is very camera shy. Instead I will leave you with more images of beautiful Minnesota. Ya, that's a good idea.
