Owning a catering company is like this:
- I’m so busy I can’t figure out a way to physically do everything I need to do, I eat cold bolognese with a spoon for dinner, and curse all those 80’s movies and The Jetsons for promising that we’d have robot assistants by now. Where. Are. They.
- * crickets *
Considering I’m blogging at 10pm instead of strapping on my light blocking eye mask like I should be, it’s safe to say that this week falls into the #1 category. And yes, I had cold bolognese for dinner. Actually that’s not entirely true. I had 2 bites while it was scorching hot, and got distracted, later shoveling the rest of it in my mouth while doing dishes. It’s all glamour over here, folks!
I didn’t manage to take many food pics today, but did wake up to a text from Simon asking if this was the right amount of butter to put on his coconut muffin:
I replied that it’s almost enough butter, but this is more like it:
Looking through the pictures on my phone, I’m reminded that I did actually have lunch! Yay me. Leftover turkey soup, the one I’ve been bragging about. Seriously, Bobby Flay would get his tuchus handed to him if he challenged me to a Throw Down on this one. I will try and post a recipe, but it’s one of those things…. Almost impossible to record what happened in the kitchen that day. Measuring definitely did not, but I’ll do my best to recipe-ify it. This picture is from the other night. I did not eat it at the table with a nice cloth napkin today.
In other news: Do you like our glitter table? We did some DIY this weekend with the kids, which is way outside the norm of our usual activities. We are not crafty people. The concept of putting down something protective didn’t cross our minds, and so the table has officially been refinished. And it’s pretty damn sparkly.
For the most part, I was way too busy today to think about what I could and couldn’t eat, so it was essential that there were plenty of leftovers in the house. I have an equally busy day tomorrow, the next day, the day after that, and the day after that. But there are a few recipes that I reeeeealy want to post, so I will try my very best to do so.
I’ll give you a hint: one of them is a variation of these crackers.
How was today for you?
