I confess - I haven't been doing any major cooking at my house. The Husband works a 3rd shift (midnight to 8am) and he likes to sleep from around noon to 8 or 9pm. My sons work the evenings so I am dining alone, most of the time. It's been so hot lately that it doesn't make sense heating up the kitchen when it's 110+ outside and the AC is on. I guess I am on summer break from heavy-duty cooking. Honestly, I need a personal Chef - I just don't want to cook and my brain doesn't want to get creative or anything.
Plus I am still watching my diet - I've lost 13 pounds since Jan and am taking it slow so that I can enjoy my goodies. (Skinny cow)
I get real "homey" during the cooler weather - All I want to do now is eat ice cream! Suck on ice cubes, eat watermelon, have a crisp salad and have BBQ every night but without me having to do it.
Right now it's just me - the house is quiet and I do like that. But why cook? So I will throw a couple of sirloin hamburger patties on the outside grill and have a salad and watermelon.
