I must be sick.
Yesterday at 2 pm found me in the kitchen cooking -
I was grilling Italian Sausages.
And making spaghetti sauce - from scratch.
For some crazy reason, I woke up wanting to cook.
I went to the store and bought all the ingredients.
I passed up the bottled spaghetti sauces and even eschewed the packet of spaghetti seasonings.
And get this - I used fresh basil from my plant in the kitchen
I used fresh parsley from the garden.
(I thought parsley was an annual. Why do I have four parsley plants and chives where I planted them last year?)
After dinner, I went to my neighbors to package up 350 "bird's nests" for her daughter's wedding.
They are pretzels and peanuts mixed with various flavors of chocolate formed into a bird's nest with 3 sage green jelly beans nestled inside! You can use chow mein noodles too but broken pretzel sticks taste even better. And the bird's nests pictured above used mini Cadbury eggs. (Not my picture) Way cute!!
But I digress. We both moved here 14 years ago.
Our kids were teeny. Now they are old. Her's are all gone.
Anyway, I asked her if she remembered the days when we cooked EVERY NIGHT.
Ahhhh...........those were the days!
