What's Cookin'?

So, today is a holiday with our observance of Columbus day and my store is closed. I find myself with a happy, much needed day to bond with my family. Growing up, when my mom wanted to re-connect with us, she would cook, knowing that the wonderful, wafting scents from her kitchen would keep up all around all day. This is my plan for today. On the menu:
  • Cupcakes. Seriously, who doesn't love cupcakes?

  • Muffins. My Guy has requested homemade chocolate chip. No problemo.

  • Chili. I got a serious hankering for some veggie chili after reading Corey James' blog today.

  • Pot Roast. It's getting chilly, so tonite a nice pot roast will be a welcome meal for the troops.

Nothing makes me happier than knowing my family is eating wholesome food cooked my mom. Frick and Frack love to help in the kitchen too, so sometimes I can get them to tell me things while we are cooking together that they wouldn't otherwise. You know, they can't use the TV or the computer as an excuse for not answering any of my pointed questions. In the kitchen, it's just easy, casual, conversation...most of the time.

What's cookin' today? A whole day of family love and fun.

And I can't wait.

We had some baked tilapia with lime and some sautéed zucchini and yellow squash.

Never really cooked much until my family moved in.

In 1492 Columbus sailed the oceans blue and 518 years after that date he found he was too late to get a cupcake off that plate! Psst send me the green frosted one Candace.

That’s crazy; I didn’t realize that it was Columbus day. There is a huge national holiday over here as well. They celebrate it by eating a lot of greasy and fatty pork and fish with faces.

Just like they celebrate every other Tuesday.
