It’s already after 7 and I haven’t even begun to think of what to make for dinner!
Ah I know I can cook something from the freezer. The other day I was eying a meat pie, a Tourtiere, that I made a while back and froze. I think it’s time to pull that out and cook it. Luckily it can be cooked from frozen since it’s basically already been cooked in advance.
I usually save things like meat pie for the winter months when a good hearty warm meal is needed.
Do you have foods that you eat more often in the summer or winter? We do, and since I enjoy cooking I tend to make up a big batch of whatever recipe I tend to be working on that day and freeze whatever I’ve made in order to have a quick and easy meal on a day when I don’t have much time for cooking.
I love cooking. Did you know that I almost catered my own wedding? Yeah. I had to be talked out of that one. Plan a wedding in three months and cook all the food? Was I crazy? Probably wedding crazed anyway.
I’ve often thought of taking some cooking courses. Perhaps not a full culinary arts course like the one offered here: http://www.csca.edu/, but an advanced class or two would be fun.
I’ve always enjoyed making pastries and baking. Luckily I don’t eat all the food I cook though! I enjoy creating my own unique entrees too. I’ll look up a recipe for a complete meal, but then I’ll add some of my own ingredients or spices to give it a unique twist. I particularly like this grilled veggie recipe. Yum. Maybe we’ll have that tomorrow with some grilled skinless chicken breasts.
Do you enjoy cooking? Have you ever thought of taking a culinary arts course?
