I want another Sunday!

I have spent this ENTIRE day in the kitchen!

I made 3 batches of Spritz cookies for my class to decorate tomorrow.

I made my usual batch of frijoles.

I am roasting a chicken with root veggies for dinner tonight.

A few friends and I have Tequila Tuesday every week--drinks and apps at home. We are doing a special one this week with soups. I make this crazy delish French Onion--takes FOREVER to properly caramelize 2# of onions. Well, I was just about done with it when my son tried it and asked, all hopeful, "Are you hosting Tequila Tuesday?" and when I said no, he looked so sad. Sucker that I am, I told him if he went to the store for more onions, I would make a batch for our house, too.

I'm kicking myself because I coulda saved time and effort if I had known from the get go I was making two batches! I'd already washed/dried/put away the food processor/knife/cutting board, etc.

I've seen recipes to caramelize onions in the crockpot. Have any of you tried it? It would make it so much less labor-intensive. How would that work with the fond and de-glazing? Can you even do that in a crockpot?

Holy cow. Iím exhausted just reading this. I just realized I forgot to do laundry. All Iíve done is nap, eat and watch tv (and I ran a few errands).

I think we need a Smonday. A day between Sunday and Monday.

Gotta ask about the cookies

This means there are districts out there still allowing food that's not prepackaged?

My kids and I cook every week! I have a full kitchen in my classroom. We made falafel for the letter F and latkes for Hanukkah last week.

I was going to make these with my kids tomorrow, thought I should do a trial run, and my kids reminded me they couldn't use the cookie press when they were little. And mine is a bit finicky because it was my great-grandmother's. So, I made these ahead of time and the kids will just decorate them.

I did gingerbread last year and that was a NIGHTMARE.

But, wow... exhausting just reading about your day.
