Sunday Cooking

For those of you who read my other blog, New Life In South Dakota, you know that not only do I love to cook and try new recipes, I also live in Tiny Apartment, which happens to be in a basement. I don't have a fancy kitchen; my pots and pans are banged up and burned, I don't "do" gadgets, my oven is circa 1972 or something like that and my refrigerator is of the seventies efficiency type. I like to take pictures of what I cook, but I'm not a very good photographer and a new camera is not even a consideration for the budget. What you see is what you get.

I cook on Sunday nights for the whole week. As a single woman with a limited income, I find that cooking one large meal and refrigerating it in portion sizes to slip in my bag every morning is as good as it gets. I've lived with myself long enough to know that once something hits the freezer, it's not coming back out except to go in the trash and I can't and don't like to waste food. So, there's not much variety in my diet and woe is the day I make something horribly yucky that I have to eat all week long, but I try new things and sometimes they're awesome and sometimes they're not. I can try to convince Gay Boyfriend to eat the yucky leftovers, but if I don't like it, I'm pretty sure he won't either.

So, come along for the ride. And maybe some good eating along the way!

Have you considered getting a large crockpot? They are *awesome*. And not very expensive.

Especially if you like to cook and have leftobvers for the week.

And while the food cooks the aroma permeates your entire apartment.
