1. Simple soccer night dinner
When I say simple, I really mean it. Some of us had packed sandwiches eaten in the car. The others cleared out the leftovers.
I’m all for planned dinners and eating at home, but sometimes the simplest thing works best.
2. Cooking (and photographing) 8 meals in one day
Saturday was a busy day of cooking. I’m working on a new project for the site (I think you’re going to love it!) and I needed to shoot eight recipes, although I only got 5 done on Saturday. It worked out great that the leftovers had gotten cleared out of the fridge a couple of days before when we had our simple dinner night.
Here’s one of the ingredient photos I took. We’ve got some great meals to eat this week from all of that cooking.
3. Listening to Hamilton while cooking
I’ve fallen into a deep, deep Hamilton obsession. I have no reason for this. A few weeks ago, I hadn’t even heard of Hamilton. Then I heard some people talking about it. I had to google to find out what it was.
Oh my! Since then I’ve devoured everything I can find and the cast album has been on repeat on my Spotify account. I have a friend who loves musical theater and I’ve been trying to talk her into sharing this obsession. I think it’s working 😉
In case you wonder what I’m talking about or you want to fall deep in the Hamilton hole yourself, here are a few links:
The video below is a performance at the White House. The singing starts 9 minutes into the video, if you want to skip President Obama talking.
Another video performance at the White House, this time of the song “My Shot”.
A story on Hamilton by CBS Sunday Morning:
Here’s an interesting article on all the Biblical references in Hamilton. To be clear, this is not a show/album that you’d want to listen to with young kids. There is some language in some of the numbers and some adult themes.
Okay, I’m done now. I could go on, but I will spare you.
I’d love to know what you’re listening to in the kitchen this week (and what’s working for you).
