I'm Pretty Sure It's All About the Food

I feel like I haven't been around for a while, and I blame it all on food. Seriously, buying, cooking, cleaning up after, life revolves around food.

First, I had to go shopping yesterday because the turkeys are on sale, and I always grab a couple to throw in the freezer. Got two of those for 38¢/lb. - so now I have 4 in the freezer. I think I only have one more package of cooked turkey in the freezer, so it's about time to cook one of them. Beth complains every time I cook a turkey that the only thing we eat for weeks is turkey, but really I put a lot of it in the freezer to use for casseroles, turkey salad, and such. Besides, Beth doesn't eat at home enough to complain about anything we eat. Not that that stops her...

By the time I got home yesterday, got everything carried in - because, besides turkeys I bought plenty of other stuff - and got it put away, it was time to fix dinner. Then after dinner, cleaning up the kitchen. The rest of the night? I don't even know - we watched a movie (Charlie Wilson's War) because it has to go back to the library tomorrow, I messed around on Facebook, dropped some Entrecards, thought about posting, didn't get motivated.

Today I think I spent all day in the kitchen getting cinnamon rolls ready to bake tomorrow and making probably the best bread ever. I also bought 3 roasts yesterday because they were on sale for $2.49/lb. So I cooked one of them today to slice for lunches. It's better than packaged lunch meat, cheaper than deli meat, and really easy. I just sprinkled salt, pepper, oregano and garlic powder on both sides of the roast, placed it fat side up on a rack, and baked it for 2 hours. After I cooled it, I put it in the refrigerator, and I will slice it tomorrow.

Spaghetti and some of the amazing bread I made today for dinner, dishes done, and now I'm sitting on the couch, and I'm not messing with food again until tomorrow. Except maybe to eat the rest of the cranberry apple crisp...
