Domestic Goddess

I've come to realize that there's something quite satisfying about all this cleaning. I think, in a way, it's become a bit of a replacement for my "real" job. There are things I don't miss much about my job, but I DO miss the people I work with and I miss that feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day. At least with the cleaning I've been doing, I have that feeling. Funny, isn't it?! I sure wouldn't want to do it for a living though!

Today I was even inspired to do a little cooking since I was cleaning the refrigerator. Really, if you cook a thing until it's not green and slimy anymore, it's safe to eat, right?

Okay, I'm just kidding! But we bought a roasted chicken a few days ago, and I thought I'd better either make soup with what was left or toss it, so I put it in a pot with a bunch of veggies that were aged to perfection. I waived my magic wooden spoon over the pot several times, and before long, soup was born!


This past week, our neighbors picked cherries off their tree and gifted us with a generous amount. A couple days ago, when I was looking for a way to get rid of Hubby for awhile, I wheeled him out to the garage with a cherry pitter, a bag of cherries, and a bowl. By the time I let him back in the house, he had a bowl full of pitted cherries, so I turned those into a pie today. Yum!


I guess it's time to wheel Hubby back out to the garage again tomorrow!

P.S.: The pie bubbled a little bit of juice onto my clean oven! Oh well, I knew it couldn't stay clean forever.

The pie looks yummy! I put heavy duty alum. foil on the bottom of my oven. When bubble overs happen, all I have to do is replace the foil.

Wow - and she cooks and she bakes, too. Is there anything this woman can't do? Can you wave your magic wooden spoon and have a piece of that pie appear on MY plate??
