Guess who was cooking in the kitchen the other day?? Me!!
I am one of the best cooks in my house, the second best to be exact. I have shared some of my challenges of cooking a good meal before. I can cook, although it is usually something very basic and involves the conventional oven. By the way I still never figured out what happened with the cookies that the kids and I shaped over St. Patrick’s Day that came out as blobs! I have moved past this though as my kids’ think that I am one of the best cooks around. They don’t consider the fact that I warm up meals that their dad makes at least 50% of the time. I love having small children.
Anyways, this past Saturday night I had an opportunity to make my first meal in our new place. I have said this before and I will say it again “the one meal that I excel in cooking is breakfast”. Besides that my favorite meal of the day is breakfast, so aren’t I the lucky one? I decided to make my famous Bisquick pancakes for dinner.
After adjusting the heat on the stove, due to the excessive smoke, I was in business and made some fabulous pancakes for the family with a few extras for another meal. Time to admit I was somewhat nervous about setting off the smoke alarm at first, especially since I did not know exactly where the smoke alarm is in our place is! That’s when I turned on the fan, completely opened the windows in the kitchen, and turned down the temperature on the stove.
The pancakes came out perfect, the best ever I believe (must have been the lower temperature). I topped them with butter, syrup and powdered sugar. The kids and I sat down with our pancakes and milk; it was a meal fit for kings and queens. And can I tell you I am loving life & our new home!
