Spring break began for me Friday. ♥Oh how I love the sound of those words. ♥
I hope I can post a little more than once this week, I have some major projects to do around the house and have some lunches sheduled with friends and, well, you get the idea.
It's catch up time for everything I haven't had time for.
Here is someone I always have time for. Lauren spends her Sundays with us. Love that. I think we will be cooking together a lot on Sundays. Lauren, her dad and I. She is moving into a new cute apartment at the end of the month and I have some decorating projects on the calender with her. Furniture to paint, fun to be had. But I digress. The kid knows how to cook, she just lacks a little faith in herself, and a good basic cookbook, which I didn't realize until this weekend. So her dad and I are walking her through some of her favorite recipes on Sunday afternoons. This week she made her favorite sausage and asparagus quiche with me,turkey burgers for the freezer with her dad, along with some tips on poaching chicken breasts to use in quick recipes after work. She went home with goodies for the freezer and fridge and we had a great time.
(Oooh, a sneak peek of the upper cabinets, still working on the lower ones.)
and having coffee
And just having fun. I think the mug says it all.
I would love to hear what your go to favorite basic cookbook is. Mine is an old Betty Crocker circa 1973. Any suggestions for a good one for her?
