Homecooked Lunch Done Right

What do I do on a Saturday? I wake up at 8 am is what I do.

What else do I do on a Saturday? I decide to scrub my living room and kitchen.

Not that I really wanted to do either of those things. I woke up at 8 because Zedd was crying his head off. I grabbed him, cuddled him, and when I tried to doze back off, I failed miserably. So I stumbled downstairs and got online. After realizing none of the other 3 people that live here with Bill and I were going to clean up the train wreck they left in the living room, I started picking up. Then vacuuming. Then steam cleaning. No, I’m not angry at all. Okay, yeah, I am. I’ve sat in the living room a total of maybe two times to watch TV in the past month. Yet the past 5 weeks I am always the one cleaning it up on Saturdays. Whatever…

While emptying the steam cleaner I notice also that Dustin has been slacking on his kitchen duties. Knowing that I am really pushing myself to start cooking at home more, I start wiping off the stove. Then I remove the burners, clean the underplate of the stove, the counters, then the floor.

I finally stopped cleaning around 2. Knowing Bill would be home soon I start sorting through the cupboards looking for stuff to make for lunch. Upon finding nothing interesting I turn to my folder of recipes and start looking.

Then I find the recipe that makes the whole damn day worth it.

It was so good, it should be illegal. It probably is in 5 states.


Speaking of recipes, anyone have a fantastic lunch recipe they’d like to share? I’m in dire need of some new lunchtime foods to nom on.

  1. Ohhhh that macaroni & cheese looks SO good. It's the last thing I need right now, but you have me VERY tempted to buy the ingredients and make it tomorrow!

    It sucks that you had to do all of that cleaning. Ever notice that the person who makes the least amount of mess always winds up being the one cleaning up the majority of it all? It's definitely like that around here. To add insult to injury, Alyssa and Dan sometimes complain when I ask them to clean up a mess that they themselves did not specifically make. Pfft. THAT'S ALL I DO AROUND HERE!

  2. Ugggg! I can't stand having to clean up after people. I do good just to clean up after myself!

    That macaroni & cheese looks amazing. I've never actually made it that way but I've always wanted to. The Pioneer Woman rocks!
