domestic goddess



I have no idea what got into me on Sunday.  Perhaps it was the trip to Spotlight on Saturday where I picked up some fabric and other crafty bits that made me feel a bit like Martha Stewart or maybe it was the Nigella and Jamie Oliver shows I was watching later that night.  Who knows?  What ever it was, I woke up early on Sunday, put on an apron (just to look the part) and began cooking up a storm.  

I made minestrone soup, toasted muesli, beef and Guinness stew and baked homemade bread - who is this person? In between I even managed to clean the house and finish the laundry - just like your typical 50's housewife.  Of course I never did get a chance to sit down and relax because by the time it was all finished I was ready to collapse on the couch - which I did, with absolutely no guilt.

I'm such a fan of bread, though I've never made any myself! That book looks like something I should get.

Love those fabrics too!

Golly, they all sound wonderful! It is so very satisfying to create things from something else, especially of the edible variety. I could handle a piece of that bread right now!
