So...I hear it all the time...I don't bother cooking anymore, it's just the two of us.
I'm so glad I never felt that way, or I'd never have learned to cook a thing! It's always just been the two of us. Oh sure, I might have company for a few days now and then, and when I watched the boys all those years I'd cook for them. But for the most part, it's just been the two of us.
So, yesterday and today was a hunker down kind of day.
It snowed all day yesterday and today everything was slick as can be.
I was stuck inside.
I baked a ham last week. And of course, with only two of us, there are leftovers.
I shredded some cheese (2 cups)
Cut up some potatoes and leftover ham.
Melted 3 Tbl. of butter in a pan,
then added 1 Tbl flour,
1 tsp salt,
and 1/4 tsp pepper (I didn't really measure the pepper, I just sprinkled it on.)
Mix it all up on the stove top and let it get all bubbly.
Then add 2 cups milk, and 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese to the pan with the bubbly butter, flour, etc.
Stir and Heat until that's all bubbly, and hot. Let bubble for one minute, and don't stop stirring.
Pour on top of ham and potatoes.
Green Bean Casserole
Who doesn't know how to make GBC?
Shame on you.
Roll out some pie dough (pre-bought because you are living in one room and you are not going to make pie dough from scratch with a rolling pin when you have this > < much counter space. Add some peaches you canned a few years back...when you had a real kitchen in a real house. Throw in some flour, some sugar, and some cinnamon, and voila' again, bake a pie.
A Comfort meal!MONDAY....
Today, Monday, I woke up at 1:30 a.m. screaming from a nightmare! I yelled "GET OUT OF MY DORM!" Who knows why? Good thing it's only the two of us. I woke My Shug up! We got up to icy roads so he had to take the only four wheel drive we have to work. I cancelled my hair appt. and my lunch plans. Ten minutes after he left, the assisted living facility called and said his Mom fell in her room and they are going to have her go to the hospital for x-rays and such. I was stuck at home but I think she is going to be ok with some pain meds and therapy. My Mom, who works at the hospital, visited her. Nothing broken. She is 92. I have not had access to internet all day long. AuGH! What a Monday!
