Kitchen Therapy

July 26th, 2014 at 10:40 pm

For three days this week, I had training for school. So, I was delighted to have some time for some kitchen therapy today.

Many people I know do not like cooking, but I do, especially when I have time to take my time and work in my kitchen. A friend graciously shared some green beans with us from her garden. I cleaned and snapped them and cooked them in some chicken broth I made earlier this week.

DH's tomatoes are doing quite well, so I used some of them to make marinara sauce. He brought in some onions for me to use as well as basil. The kitchen sure smelled wonderful.

Kneading dough is relaxing so I have also baked some honey wheat bread for tonight's meal and beyond. What is it about the aroma of baking bread?

Supper tonight is turkey tenderloins, mashed potatoes, green beans, sliced tomatoes, bread, and cottage cheese.

Plus I think my stress level has dropped!

We will have leftover turkey for another couple of meals and extra bread...good sandwich making and saving some money as well!

    Yummy! It is nice that cooking relaxes you. I harvested a huge bunch of chives from a plant that has gotten out of control. Otherwise we don't have anything edible planted this year.

    I enjoy kitchen therapy, too! This weekend I made eggplant parmesan, and chicken with eggplant in garlic sauce. Cheap, healthy and delicious.
