How Do They Do It? How Do You?
About seven months ago I acquired a lovely new job that keeps me constantly challenged and intellectually stimulated.
It also keeps me on the run.
As a result, my posts have diminished to one or two a week.
More importantly, I am seldom it the kitchen, except on weekends when I am not too tired.
The upside is that my husband has prepared more meals lately, especially on nights when I get home at 7:30 or 8 p.m.
Take last night for example. He made ribs from his own recipe, tossed some herb-y fozen potatoes in the oven and cobbled together a lovely green salad.
Why does someone else's cooking taste better than your own? It may have been the best meal I've ever had.
Two weeks ago he made pot roast with vegetables (above) and dumplings. I don't have to tell you that this is the kind of meal that comforts and delights. And it did.
Bottom line is: He is a catch. He prepares good, old-fashioned comfort food, the kind our grandmothers used to make. He has always been supportive of my career, which has always been the kind that requires long and odd hours.
Even with such support, I can't figure out how to post here more often, or how to visit other blogs.
How do you all do it? How do you cook such lovely meals, write such lovely posts and still have a life?
You continue to amaze me, readers. Thank you for being there and staying with me.
