In case anyone hasn't figured it out by now, I am usually a bit of a freak about deadlines; late = 5 minutes early and all that. However, lately I feel like I am doing too many things just under-the-wire (or even, just past the wire).
French Fridays cooking is almost always done the weekend before - and when I am on top of my game, I try to get the month done in one weekend.
I am pretty sure if there were an award for "home cook with the most erratic kitchen mood swings", I could be a strong contender.
Periods of insane and relatively over the top kitchen activity can be followed by days of well, the total opposite.
The day after whipping out seven hundred and ninety three food projects is probably going to be followed by a day where breakfast, lunch and dinner subsist of crackers and cheese or toast with - well, nothing, because I don't feel like pulling that jar of jelly out of the refrigerator.
Days where I don't even want to think about pulling a pan out of the cupboard, let alone actually doing so.
