What are you cooking right this moment?

It's 3:00 am and I'm making ragu sauce for pasta and pizzas.

Ha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's up this late at night. I just had a grilled cheese about an hour ago - extra sharp cheddar with sliced tomatoes on pumpernickel.

It's not late for me, it's really early.

I filled my crockpot with onions, butter and a few cloves of garlic. It's the start of a several days' project.

This step is the onion base. Thanks for the idea, Bolas!

I have been in a very nice hotel for over three months. I have not cooked anything and it is driving me nuts.

made a cheese pizza wrap for my daughters lunch and put a tuna steak that was marinated in spicy teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes. was to be supper last night but plans changed and was marinated for 15hrs. put on smoker at 375* for 16min and was still pink in the middle, more of a med or med well for tuna steak.

Still good, though.

Wish I had seen this when it posted! But alas I just found this site an hour ago.

I just finished my first exam week of grad school and have had a terrible sleep schedule. So when most people were leaving the bars, I had just woken up a few hours ago and my body wanted lunch. So I made 2 am fried chicken. My drunk roommates returning home really appreciated it!

Haha, nah, we all just left it in the sink to so we could put it off as long as humanly possible as usual!

Just turned on the oven to preheat so I can make some gum drop cookies. I have everything in place to make about 3 different kinds of cookies/sweets today, to be ready for our Christmas holiday dinner. So far I'm right on schedule and I hope things stay that way.

It is 7:17am on Saturday, and I have mise en placed a breakfast of fresh squeezed California navel orange juice, two basted eggs, 4 strips of thick bacon, country hash brown (a.k.a. O'Brien) potatoes, a sliced banana walnut mini-loaf, Ovaltine, and coffee.
