    This morning I made eggs with olive oil,

    taco spice, turmeric, black pepper, onion, green pepper, zucchini, squash, and some spinach and a bit of grated cheese. It was mostly veggies and just some eggs. I got lucky in that I got the veggies cooked just the right amount, still crunchy. Yummy.

    I love to cook and bake some.

    a few years ago I decided to cook all my meals and not eat out as much or ever really. if I can make it then I don't buy it. I think it makes for a happier home plus it makes me feel more feminine and old fashioned.

    lastnight is the first time in a long time

    since I made the stracatto recipe from joy of cooking book..so yummy..it would be neat to make a version like it but with teriyaki flavors..I would think that it wouldnt taste right using crushed tomatos any suggestions on what would replace the tomatos?

    This might be the beer speaking,

    but it kind of rocks to be good at cooking. Even if I'm just making food for myself, it's so enjoyable to make a good dish some times! Today I made a pasta sauce with ground pork and sweet peppers. It ended up so good!

    I most certainly enjoy cooking

    but sometimes I just don't have the energy. That's why sometimes I make a big casserole or a big pot of spaghetti and freeze some of the leftovers. Dinner made easy. I'm beat so guess what? We're having leftovers tonight.
