On Sunday, I cooked and baked. That's pretty much all I did.
I got up and baked banana bread and started a batch of French bread rising at the same time. After that, I cooked six hard-boiled eggs and a pound of small shell noodles for a batch of tuna noodle salad I was bringing to a Ronald McDonald House later in the day.
When my husband woke up, I made scrambled eggs and bacon. It was too soon to have the fresh bread with it, so I just made regular toast.
We spent the afternoon just hanging out, watching a little TV and surfing the net. I kept thinking I should go to the greenhouse and get some plants, but it was too far away and too hot outside.
Before I dropped off the tuna salad and one of the loaves of bread, I took a couple of chicken breasts out of the freezer and marinated them in white wine, garlic, Worcestershire sauce and olive oil. When I got home, I put them on the barbecue grill and began roasting green beans and walnuts in the oven with olive oil. I served the beans with a dressing made from red wine vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, thinly sliced red onions, oregano and garlic, and garnished them with feta cheese. It's my favorite way to serve green beans; I was afraid I'd made too much, but my husband and I ate a whole plateful. (Update:
I'll throw a I've put the photo and the recipe up on Flickr here when I have more time.)
Today I'm bringing my usual fruit and yogurt parfait for breakfast and I've made myself two sandwiches for lunch with the French bread. I'll also take most of the banana bread into the office to share.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything more exciting than cooking and eating?
