Of course that is impossible to do without doing some other cleaning, sweeping, dusting and such. We know how it all goes. I am glad to say that in the last 48 hours I have managed to make my knee swell up twice the size it was. As well as make myself happier for the ease and access to different rooms I have created. Oh it is like a good housekeeping type of week. Oh let's add in tonight's fried feast we are going to have. Yeah it is fried green tomatoes time. Add in chicken fried bacon and gravy with a side of home fries and onions. Bring on the beer and I am ready to go.
Now this is not the normal around here but sometimes you just have to have a good ol mess of a meal. Otherwise it is great to dig around in a good cookbook and find some new ideas for meal time. I know that can be as good reading as any romance or detective novel for me. I have a new favorite to dive into also. The Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen Cookbook is the bomb! I know that I have always trusted the recipes from Good Housekeeping. They do test and retest thousands of recipes every year. And it is nice to know that a recipe is going to work the first time you use it as long as you are following what it says to do.
I also love that they have kept up with the times. This is not grandma's cookbook, ladies. No this is smartphone ready. You can see videos on how to execute that dish with just a quick scan. Pretty cool, huh? Add in expert cooking tips and advice, the nutritional analysis that is oh so important for our diets these days and those easy weeknight meals so we can get dinner on the table before bath time sets in. Whew, it is a busy day being mom these days. And with the holidays coming up I am really tuning into the entertaining guide and freezer guidelines. All of this with a lay-flat binding makes it easy to use, easy to find what I need and easy to do meals at my fingertips. With days like I have had this week I will take all the help I can get. Loving this one so much that I have planned on giving the Other Mother her own copy for Christmas. Perfect for the foodie on your list too!
Want to have even more fun? Well pop over and enter for a chance to go to NYC and play in the test kitchens of Good Housekeeping for yourself! Yeah, wouldn't we all love to do just that? I think it would be a perfect way to enjoy a vacation. Of course I just love food so dang if this is not just spot on.
