UPDATE 11/19/13- Nicole Elizabeth will be launching a new website soon, after which I’ll update this post! In the meantime, visit the new The Fresh Kitchen Facebook page!
I’ve been following my friend’s cooking blog, thefreshkitchen, where she takes ingredients we may not usually think about and turns them into delicious meals. I love that her meals are simple enough for even me! One day, I might even impress Hubby, hahah! Also, I like to make our own bread, but Hubby and I almost never eat an entire loaf before it goes bad. Panzanella gives me another healthy option to keep our homemade bread from going to waste.

I feel somewhat accomplished today. I made muffins! From overripe bananas! This IS an accomplishment when you realize that I’m constantly thinking, “Oh, those bananas are getting ripe. I should make something with them before they’re DEAD.” And then the next day, “Oh, those bananas are getting ripe. I should make something with them before they’re DEAD.” *repeat three times* This time I actually made something with them before they were dead! I also finally used the home made chicken stock I had in a delicious soup for lunch. None of my meat was thawed except for hot dogs. So that’s what went into the soup. That’s okay. Whatever works, right?
I also did diaper laundry. And I folded some clothes. I emptied the trash. See? I was very productive! Oh, and I showered. That’s important.
I need to go work on some more laundry, but I’m going to try to tackle that sewing project again tonight. Maybe I’ll give hubby the manual, and see if he can understand it??? He does lots of technical stuff at work, so maybe he can speak technicalese better than I can.
That is all. For now.
I wanted to share my friend’s blog with you. She’s an amazing chef and is back to blogging after a mommy hiatus. She has a toddler and a newborn and still manages to cook fantastic meals daily. Her new focus for her blog is to introduce “new ways to use familiar ingredients, learning about ingredients that aren’t commonly used in the typical American household, and learning how to get the most out of your pantry in ways that will appeal to the whole family.” Give her a read. You won’t be disappointed!
