I thought you might like to see what part of my day was like yesterday, so here's a photo journey of our main dish--Pigs in a Blanket.
The 'pigs', all 240 of them.
And the thawed whole grain roll dough for the blankets.
An hour later, despite the usual interruptions, this is what the beauties looked like. I actually enjoy prepping items like this. The repetition leads to a contemplative state where book thoughts flourish. This was a busy day. Characters from three books are vying for my attention. So that contemplative state isn't so quiet.
Baking time--a few trays at a time...
Finally, in the hot box and service time. A banner day--only one pig un-blanketed itself during baking!
And so ends another day in the kitchen. Well, not really. There's a ton of clean up after the meal. And paperwork. And prep for the next day. And... well, I'm sure you get the idea.
