KP Duty

Since DH retired about a year ago, he has taken on most of the cooking duties.  Lucky for us, he’s a much better cook than I am!  I’ve been offering to cook on Sundays to give him a break, and tonight I tried two new recipes.  We had a wonderful corn pudding and scallop stuffed mushrooms.  I guess I should have taken pictures to prove that I can cook.


KP duty on Sunday includes buying our fresh produce.  Then I have to cut up the melon, husk and cook the corn for the corn pudding, and eat a peach!  I couldn’t resist the peaches this week.

Continuing with KP theme, I made aprons this weekend!


I still have to add the strings to some of them, but I’m really happy with how they’re turning out.  I’m making two identical wall hangings.  Do you recognize the pattern yet?

The heat wave finally broke here, but the humidity is still very high, and it’s uncomfortable to be outdoors.  I did manage to get a few flower pictures today, though, so I’ll share them as I bid you good-night!    Sunny

  8. My husband does almost all the cooking too. You are doing the right thing to give him a break so that he doesn't burn out. How was the scalloped mushrooms? Sounds delicious. Is it something worth sharing with us?

  9. Summer is the best time for KP duty because all the fresh produce makes it easy to whip up a quick dinner. YUM!
