I love weekends. Maybe this goes without saying, but I don’t just love them for their worklessness. I really work as much on Saturdays and Sundays as I do during the week, just on different stuff.
The real reason I love weekends is that I have time to make yummy food. I can choose recipes and go to the grocery store in the morning, do a little laundry, a household repair or two, and then get out in the kitchen at last where I can take my time, when no one is whining about being starved, and we’re not bumping up against anyone’s bedtime.
It doesn’t have to be a complicated recipe. Just something that has some depth to it. Something worth looking forward to. Something new.
I usually collect recipes I like throughout the week online, in magazines, cookbooks, etc. I make a pile and decide whether to use them in the paper, in the blog, or just for home.
Slow-Cooker Sweet and Spicy Asian Pork Shoulder from www.RealSimple.com is coming home with me tonight, to make its appearance (she said hopefully) Sunday night.
