On Friday I couldn't wait to get home and get into the kitchen. Do you have a routine to end the week? Mine is cooking. We grab a sandwich at Sprouts or a salad at Subway all week but Friday is ALL MINE!
I decided to make spaghetti and DH was saying, "Yum, yum," all the way home. How do you make spaghetti? There are so many ways to do it that I am often surprised that it is still called spaghetti and not "that pasta and ground beef with sauce stuff." I mix ours together after the spaghetti and the beef/sauce mixture are cooked so it is a sorta, kinda spaghetti casserole, then sprinkle with an asiago/romano cheese mixture.
After dinner I relaxed with my knitting, a glass of merlot, loving the fact that when I cook I don't do dishes. Also, I made scones last weekend so I finished the day with a scone and a cup of Tazo Calm tea.
Scones are my next favorite way to finish off a week. I make mine using a British recipe with flour, sugar, butter, half and half, baking powder and baking soda (no eggs) all thrown into the food processor together, then I add cranberries or nuts and occasionally grated dark chocolate. They are light and sweet and go with a hot cup of tea like nothing else in the world!! Also, I sometimes serve them with fresh preserves.
The cast on rectangular shawl in Blue Skies Skinny Cotton is growing and I can't wait to finish it for the summer. It will be perfect to toss around my shoulders to ward off an air conditioning chill. Love it!!
Life is good!!
