Super Saturday: Reveling in the domestic arts

May 1, 2010

I can’t find the picture of my dazzling BBQ pork success so will share a wonderful pork tenderloin made soe time ago.  I can also recommend a nice bottle of wine only $5 at Trader Joe’s: Epicuro’s Lazio white wine.

I am up and at ’em!  (Always have wondered who ’em was, though.)  It’s 8:30 and the chicken stock is bubbling merrily on the stove next to the pot of eggs for the week’s snacks.  I’ve just to fetch my mending basket and settle into the perfect curve of my sofa-pillow Fortress of Solitude whilst the breakfast hash browns are baking in the toaster oven. 

It’s not a half bad beginning to the day. 

I’ve queued up an amazing lot of workly things to do, though.  The cookery was the easy part.  I have loads of prep work for next week, a good chunk of freelancing to tackle, blogging to catch up on, and perhaps a meal or two to eat.  Friends are in town, too, though they’re really just here to see each other and I happen to be the middle at which they meet. 

P.S. Last week’s chicken soup picture? Will be duplicated today! I’m so excited. I’m making the stock first, then a super sized batch will follow using both weeks’ stock.

Also, I will be making Frugal Scholar’s Broccoli Soup this week with the head of broc bought expressly for that purpose. It will be gorgeous!

    @Serendipity: I’ve always liked running my own schedule, and now that free time’s become a rare commodity again, I’m really trying to milk it. 🙂

    You just need a little get up and go!
