As I said before I am posting a little out of order. This is all kind of pre-Christmas stuff that I haven't had time to share but I wanted to post about. I baked! And cooked! See, this is huge, because if you know me, you know that, save my traditional valentines day brownies (from a box), I don't cook... or bake... or enter the kitchen to do anything but eat something that is already prepared. It's not that I have an aversion to it, or even that I can't, I just don't really like to. See the problem is that I don't really care that much about food. Just doesn't excite me. There are foods that I really like, but for the most part I eat food because I get hungry. So, I just can't bring myself to spend more time preparing something than eating it. Plus, by the time I'm done making it, I've smelled it for so long that I just don't want to eat it any more.
That being said, I am excited that I cooked and baked, and I liked it! And it was good! I made breakfast a couple days, and made Italian Turkey Meatballs, and my masterpiece, awesome pumpkin cheese cake!
Here are some pics from my cooking adventures. Hopefully, I continue to like this and I can manage to cook myself some meals while Monkey is gone that involve more than bread, turkey, mayo, and swiss cheese.
