I've decided to hone my domestic skills before Jay goes to work and I'm forced to use them day in and day out. Since I'm the one who'll be using them most, I got to pick out our new appliances. I'm in love with all of them. One of my favorite parts is that the laundry room is right next to the bedroom. No more running up and down stairs to change loads!
And tonight I even cooked dinner. Really. I've recently become enamored with George Stella, a Food Network low-carb chef. I have slowly packed on the pounds since Joshua was born, and am now faced with the choice to start a new wardrobe or start eating better. I lost a good amount of weight using the Atkins diet a few years ago and have decided to go that route again. Stella is an Atkins advocate as well, and has two great cookbooks full of low-carb yummies. Tonight it was turkey stroganoff and those faux mashed potatoes made with cauliflower and cream cheese.
I didn't make any horrible errors, although Jay and Josh sat in the kitchen with me in case I found myself in need of help right away. I don't know that I'll make either recipe again, but at least I know I can manage in a pinch. I have a few more weeks to perfect my new craft.
We'll see how it goes.
