I had planned to share my photo … share my excitement that my wrist is strong enough to bake; my achievement and then saw this WP prompt – talk about perfect timing.
Since breaking my wrist back at the beginning of June, I’ve not been able to hold or carry anything heavy and preparing/chopping vegetables etc was, well, shall I say interesting. So, to be able to cook something from scratch and to be able to lift and carry the stoneware dish in both hands today feels like a major achievement. I love cooking, and generally, we have home cooked meals regularly, so relying on convenience meals for the past couple of months has been challenging.
I guess, thinking of the prompt focus, I like cooking most things. I can’t make scones. They turn out like crunchy biscuits. Today, I made a pasta bake – simple: pasta, pasta sauce (tomato and marscapone), a mix of fresh tomatoes, and onion. It is topped with a little mozzarella and black pepper. It worked out at 420 calories per portion and was very filling. I’m going to have more for dinner. Does anyone wish to join me?
As I say, I was more excited at being able to cook again – finally. Its good to be back in the kitchen 😁
