Around 4 on New Year's Eve, I announced that I just didn't feel up to standing and cooking. So, Jeff, Dan and Cass set off to find things they could cook for dinner.
I had hardboiled 18 eggs, so their list started with Deviled Eggs. They brought home meatballs, breaded chicken, egg rolls and cheesecake. Evidently, it's much harder to cook premade frozen foods than I knew. Either that, or I've sabotaged my kids by making cooking look too easy.
I did instruct them in making Polynesian sauce for their meatballs. They used most of a restaurant sized can of pineapple. The meatballs were quite popular, needless to say.
I made a batch of Focaccia dough, and told them how to bake it after it rose. Thor was instrumental in seeing to it that this happened properly.
Then, Thor supervised Dan carefully as food was arranged on the table.
And look how pleased my cooks are with themselves! Granted, Jeff brandishing the bread knife can be a bit off-putting. But we all have trials and tribulations in our lives, right?
Happy New Year, one and all!
