Insomnia Cooking

So I knew today was supposed to be crappy out, Hot, Humid and thunder storms in the afternoon. Figured it would be a great day to do my cooking, so I can spend the nicer days outdoors.

Woke up at 4:30am. Wide awake and nothing to do. So, decided to start my cooking. Its now 7:30am and I've already made A pot of Borscht, Asparagus soup, Enchiladas/ Enchilada Sauce, Garlic Scape Pesto and a double batch of Onion Soup ( 1 batch for my daughter who will be visiting us in a few weeks, unless we make it down there first).

Its great that Im ahead of the game for today, but now I have to find something else to do

Still have Soft Ptretzels, Indian string beans, tomatoes, potatoes ( gotta pick the string beans first, will do that before it rains). Also, as always, my annual fathers day gift from my son is a 25 pound bag of onions ( hence the onion soup), so Ill also make a batch of slow cooker caramelized onions, pickled onions and whatever else I can think of doing with them. ( last few years he bought me 50 pound bags, this year, being in China, he asked my wife to pick its up for him. I told her 25 pounds will be more than enough, especially since ill be harvesting my own in a few weeks)

Same weather here in the Finger lakes of NY.
I was also up early - 4 loaves of English Muffin Bread, double batch of dinner rolls, a pot of bq sauce made and canned up. Straighten up my freezer and took all the chicken scraps and beef scraps and bones that I have been saving up and presently have pot of chix broth and beef broth cooking. Will make some kind of cookies or a cake in a little while then I think I will done in the kitchen.
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching

Just finished up the enchiladas, picked the string beans before it gets tooo hot. Now taking a break ( while my wife cleans up my mess) before round two starts.

What I think is kinda cool ( just realized it) , is that everything im making represents another county or region. Very diverse in the kitchen today, and most importantly, unlike most other times I cook in tr wee hours of the morning, no injuries and I still have all of y fingers. Thats a first!! Although, the day is still young.
