Rainy day

It's been a rainy, cool, & windy day, with a few storms thrown in for good measure this evening. Since Noah died, these sort've days have been depressing for me. I wanted to try & keep myself from getting in a funk so I decided to spend some time in my kitchen.

I LOVE cooking & baking but I just haven't done as much of it lately like I use to. Well, I made up for it today! lol It started with hubby bringing me home a pound of shrimp that was on sale that I wanted to get a little creative with. So, today I made:

~1/2lb of shrimp ceviche
~1/2lb steamed shrimp
~pot of chili soup
~white chicken enchiladas
~baked blueberry oatmeal for breakfast the next few mornings
~homemade caramel popcorn

Look for future posts & pics about some of these recipes! ;)

Some of this will be frozen for future meals, gotta love cooking ahead! Even as I sit here waiting for the caramel corn to finish baking, there are only a few dishes in the sink from the kids snack of homemade applesauce. I kept on top of the dishes as I was cooking which just made things so much easier. All this cooking got me brainstorming for my cooking class I am teaching next year at our homeschool co-op. I'm looking forward to putting together a syllabus for that class!

So what do YOU do on a dreary day to keep the rainy day blues away??
