It’s finally time to put the Bosch Mixer away and clean the kitchen.
We’ve had a workout today.
Jan and I were in Kansas City and back (a 4.5 hour round trip) before 9:00 AM to get Matt to the airport for a 7:30 flight. I think the alarm clock said something like 4:00 when I woke up. 😦
But that was just the beginning.
As soon as I got home, I popped a turkey in the oven that had been in brine overnight, started a batch of rolls for graduation, and gave 2 spelling tests and a English lesson.
By lunch time I had a mock-smoked turkey to de-bone, yeast rolls in the oven, a second batch rising and cookies in the mixer.
By 4:00 I had the turkey in the freezer for graduation weekend, 120 rolls ready to freeze, a batch of graduation cookies done, supper in the crock pot, and 12 cups of dry bread cubes for another meal next weekend.
Oh – and a batch of decoy cookies so the kids will stop eating the ones we’re making for graduation!
Whew. I’m tired.
Where was all my help? Matt was in a plane somewhere between Kansas City and Texas. Dagmar was in an ambulance on the way to Des Moines (as the attendant – not the patient!) and Buddy was helping Pedro fix fence.
That left Angel Girl, who bravely manned the kitchen with me all day.
She’s tired, too.
Boy am I glad supper is in the crock pot!
Anybody want to do some dishes? 🙂
