I made, from scratch, rolls. This was a first for me.
I called my mum and got her recipe, then she and my dad ended up coming over because dad wanted his hair cut.
While I cut hair the dough finished rising and my mum, bless her heart, rolled the rolls.
didn't she do a lovely job?!
all done; behold the magnificence
Next project was Shepherd's pie. This is something else I had never made, but I needed something for supper and knew I had all the ingredients...okay I admit, I stole corn and some potatos from the neighbours...
I turned out quite well actually, if I do say so myself, and we shared with the neighbours.
Then, supper in belly, tv watched, I realized I had neglected actioning dessert and a sweets craving overtook me. So, I compelled hubby to make some chocolate chip cookies. He did all the mixing and cleaning, and I did the forming and ovening.
Is there anything better than chocolate chip cookies, warm out of the oven, with a husband washing the bowl? No.
It was a tres domestic day, and it was lovely. I already feel better knowing that we have left-overs to take in our lunches tomorrow...one less meal to think about is a good thing.
