I have a couple of confessions to make. First, I’m a procrastinator of the highest order. I’ve been procrastinating telling you that, I’m that bad. It doesn’t even make sense really. I’ll avoid something for WEEKS that annoys me completely, and would take 5 minutes to do.
Secondly, I LOVE to cook, but I hate to clean up the mess. When I go on a big cooking bender, I’ve been known to take 2 days to clean it up (admit it, you’ve done it too. Right? Right?)
Those 2 things are related. In my procrastination of the one thing I REALLY need to be focusing on right now (the American Girl dresses), I got up yesterday morning and decided I HAD to cook! So cook I did. I started out coring, peeling, and chopping 10 pounds of apples to make homemade applesauce. Meijer had apples on sale for .50/lb. recently so we did a big stockup because everyone in this house loves homemade applesauce, and that’s a really good price! I doused them with a good shot of cinnamon, and set them to simmer.
Next up, I decided to try a recipe I had found somewhere online for a crustless potato quiche (I’m not linking to it because..well, you’ll find out!). I grated up enough potatoes to make a good lunch for all of us, plus leftovers for hubby for lunch this week, sliced onions to go with. This required breaking out my food processor that no kidding I’ve had for 2 years and never gotten out to use (procrastination again). Wow, that was awesome! The quiche, not so much. Hubby loved it, everyone else said ” Let him have it!”
Who wants to guess whether I managed to finish cleaning my kitchen today? I’m not telling!
Confession time for you…give me one of your deep dark secrets!
