My schedule just became full-time this spring. My playtime has taken a serious hit and I'm bursting with ideas for fiber projects, but it's hard to make time for them. So some of those get put on the back burner.
Another thing that has suffered in this new time crunch is cooking. I enjoy cooking, when I'm in the mood, but I'm not enthused about working a full day and then hanging out in the kitchen till 9 p.m. But you can't just say that cooking goes on the back burner too (and what a mangled metaphor THAT is!) because you do have to eat. No getting around that. And certain people at my house might balk at Cheerios for dinner on a regular basis.
I caught a show on PBS called Everyday Food that features a group of fairly normal-looking people preparing some very interesting looking dishes that seem quick, achievable, and tasty. Turns out the show is part of the Martha Stewart empire, which also includes a magazine called Everyday Food. The TV show site contains some, but not all the recipes demo'd on the air, but all the recipes can be found at Martha Stewart's Everyday Food site.
I won't stoop so low as to end this post with that most hackneyed of Martha's quotes, but I'm liking this show and this magazine.
