3 Things that work in the kitchen

1.  Listening and watching in the kitchen

As my kids get older, I find myself fixing dinner alone more often.  When they were little, there was always someone under foot or playing nearby.  Now they are off studying or at work or practice.

The upside of being alone in the kitchen is getting to watch or listen to what I want while I cook.  Here’s a list of things I’ve watched or listened to while cooking recently:

The Cozy Minimalist Course – I bought this back in the spring, I think, but hadn’t ever finished it. Now we’re fixing up the living room and it seemed like a great time to pull out this decorating course.

Andy Andrews –  I recently signed up to do Andy Andrew’s Unshakeable Entrepreneur class.  It came with bonuses of several other courses from him, all audio that I can’t make work on my phone.  I used my cooking time to catch up on some of this.

Andy Andrews is one of the wisest people I’ve ever listened to or read.  His podcast is great and so are all of his books.

Cedar Cove on Netflix – I’ve already made my way through the two seasons of this on Netflix, but I started it again the other day.  It’s nice to re-watch an easy series like this when you don’t want to pay a lot of attention to it anyway.

2.  Caramel Apple Pops

The last weekend of October is always a soccer tournament for us.  This year we’ve got a player on the girl’s and boy’s teams and our oldest son is assistant coach for the boys.

Many tournaments ago, a parent brought these caramel apple pops and shared them on the sidelines.  It’s become a small tradition, so when I spied these in the grocery I had to pick up a bag.  They’re so good!

3.  I’m now the mom of two adult children.

This one has nothing to do with kitchens or cooking, but we celebrated our oldest son’s birthday this weekend.  Peter turned 21 on October 31.  He’s studying Computer Information Technology, he helps lead worship at church and helps coach the high school soccer team.  I’m very proud of him.  He’d also be horribly embarrassed that I wrote all of that, but I don’t think he reads my blog, so I’m safe 😉

Eat at Home Challenge

This is the last week for the Eat at Home Challenge, but it’s not too late to join us.  You can sign up here.

We had to be out of town over the weekend.  We left on Thursday, which is also my grocery day.  I went ahead and hit the grocery with my list from the Traditional Plan so that we’d be all set to eat at home when we got back.
