Out of Practice

This summer has been a busy one? (Hasn't everyone's?)

Between vacations, Tony being out of town and early evening swim lessons, dinner has been hit or miss. All that to say I've done very little cooking that doesn't just involve making a sandwich or heating something up. That's why I'm pretty much feeling like a gourmet chef right now.

As I sit here, I have chicken in the crock pot and bread dough kneading in the bread machine. I've chopped the lettuce, carrots, celery and onions for our salad. I realize it's a very simple meal, but it's home cooked and more importantly it isn't pizza, macaroni and cheese, quick spaghetti, sandwiches, or gasp, hot dogs (and I'm not talking about the all beef variety).

Now, I do realize that since I've gotten a bit prideful about my meal prep, I'll more than likely fall back on Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets and tator tots tomorrow. Baby steps, right?

For now, I'm just wondering if I'll be able to convince Tony that I don't remember how to clean up the kitchen after all this time "off."

Happy Monday!
