This was the first weekend since the beginning of May where neither my hubby or went boating on Lake George.
My hubby went to play tennis and I played Suzy Homemaker.
I put out our fall flags and then went to a local farm to buy some mums, a pumpkin and some freshly picked apples (I had wanted to go pick them but my mentee & my hubby were busy & it’s no fun alone.) Then I went to the grocery store to buy fixings for two homemade soups. The cool temps just made me want soup.
I’ll say this up front: I like to cook but I rarely do cook. I prepare something to eat but I wouldn’t call it cooking. Since the kids are gone and my hubby could care less what he eats, my priorities are pretty selfish – work, running, friends, tennis, mah jongg, etc.
First I made your basic chicken soup – water, a whole chicken, carrots, celery, spices & noodles later.
Then, I made vegetable beef soup. I got lazy on this one – stew beef, frozen vegetables, frozen potatoes, organic beef broth, spices, barley later.
Well, I hope my hubby enjoys those soups. Who knows when I will get motivated again to make another homemade meal.
After work this week, I plan to make an apple pie with those apples. (Warm homemade apple pie with vanilla ice cream is one of my favorite desserts.)
The weather so far looks good for next weekend.
There will be NO COOKING – just racing, boating …
Happy Running! Do you cook often?
