I agree with you cooking is my way of relaxing and preparing something
very tasty for my family.

I used to date a chef and I hated the hrs he worked, but he would bring
home some really good left overs.

My husband and I more than a time or two have thought about getting into
the food business but I keep going back to I don't want to work those hours
and I know I would have to even if it was something we packaged and sold.

is your glass half full or empty? my is half full

I have thought of opening a coffeeshop, with very good sandwiches, cookies, and of course cheesecake!!! I guess there wouldn't be much grilling though. :(

I don't even have the excuse of being in a kitchen all day. Lately I have been in a rut cookingwise, plus it's been too frickin' hot, even more lately.

Guess I'll get some juice again when the weather turns colder. In the meantime, I can always talk about eating good with you guys.

store bought sushi tonight!

I managed to go food shopping for the house this evening, after getting my hands and feet manicured/pedicured, that is. By the time I finished, it was close to 8pm. The last aisle I walked by had hand rolled sushi...(the chef works there till about 4pm) I picked up two small trays and ate it with my fingers as I unpacked the bags.

Like others have stated, cooking relaxes me, too. I enjoy cooking on the weekends because I have 'romantic' company from Friday night till Sunday evening. He's more than happy to clean up after dinner and I'm more than content to let him, haha.

It's nice to know I'm not alone in this...
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I work evenings and my one remaining child in the house, works split shifts. I still make dinner at 2pm everyday that I am working. It's shorly after he gets home from his first shift and shortly before I go to work. That way I can eat when the opportunity presents itself at work, and he and the roomie eat leftovers in the evening while I am at work. Leftovers don't last more than 8 hours at my place, my son is 18 and hardworking, he inhales food. On my days off, my roomie usually does the cooking.
