For the last week I have been a very busy Beaver. Like many women (and men) I’m sure, I have been slaving (not so much) in the kitchen, for hours on end to make my family happy. As this is something I love and embrace every year. (Except the last 2 & 1/2 years).
The last 2.5 years, as many of you already know, I was unable to bake as my living situation was pretty bad. I was stuck living in a box. (not literally, almost though) we were in a Mobile home that was the size of travel trailer (it was 55 foot by 10 foot one bedroom with 3 people sometimes 4 people). The kitchen. No dinner table. Had One small counter top spot (which is where the dishes had to be set out to dry). SO, now where to Prepare food.. Approx. 3 feet of walking space in the kitchen only 4 cabinets to keep dishes. One fry pan, 2 pots ect.. You get the idea.. Okay… SO. cooking was at a bare minimum.. we lived on microwave meals.
With all that said.. Now that we are in the new home, I am getting “back to normal”.
I have been baking like I have always loved to do in the past. So you can imagine how happy I have been the last week. AND, how tired and how sore I have been too…
