Too few cooks in the kitchen...

It's true. At our house, I cook...and no one else. I like to think that Paul leaves the cooking to me because I'm so good at it...but those of you who know me know that I don't follow recipes and as a result can sometimes end up putting an "interesting" dinner on the table.

Exhibit A: Homemade Lara Bars
Delicious store bought version

Crumbly, Ok-tasting homemade version
Sadly, store bought version won this battle.

Exhibit B: Eggplant quiche-like-lasagna-ish-bake
...obviously topped with oodles of cheese! This was only "okay". I am the only one in the house who would eat it and obviously, it seemed to last forever! (to be honest, I mostly picked it apart and ate the ricotta/sauce mixture and ditched the eggplant.) It looks WAY better than it tasted...unfortunately!
Exhibit C: The beginning of a Curry Vegetable Soup
Sorry, forgot to take "after" pics of this....but I've been eating it everyday for lunch. It was "just ok" so I bought a container of curry flavored sauce and added it...the final result was much better after that. (This is what I do when the CSA vegetables start coming in faster than we can consume them....voila! Garbage Disposal Soup!
After reading this blog, you're probably wondering WHY Paul doesn't cook more often....yeah, me too!
(Obviously, I throw in a few yummy dishes here and there too...just to keep him guessing!)
Catch ya later!


  1. Well I'm impressed. I feel like I always cook the same few meals over and over. We should do a recipe swap sometime.

  2. Kendra, what's your email address?
