Week of January 6

Being home and not working a nine-to-five job has resulted in some nice changes to my schedule. I went shopping on Friday this week (as opposed to the Saturday or Sunday shop I usually do). I don't think I have ever had such a nice time at the supermarket: plenty of parking, no one in the store, no lines at the registers. Wow. Weekday grocery shopping is great.

Per one of my earlier posts, I am gearing up to master Resolution #8: Cooking one recipe from each of my cookbooks. I've set up a separate blog to track recipe completion. You can get to it here or via the Cookbook Challenge link in the sidebar. I'll be noting Cookbook Challenge recipes with a "CC".

On Sunday, I:
  • Braised leeks.
  • Baked beets.
  • Boiled up (simmered really) some beans for minestrone.
  • Made Sunday dinner.
