perfect knitters) to enjoy my day of nothing. Well, 45 min. and $80 later I was home with grand plans of another kind for the day. It had been so long since I cooked something good for dinner, something resembling a dinner my mom might have put on the table years ago. It's not that I don't enjoy cooking, I really do, but it's such a rare occasion that finds my husband and i home on the same night before 6, with no plans, no projects (except said scarf), and not too exhausted to eat. I decided to make a Chicken Pot Pie , starting with homemade Chicken soup. I also wanted to make some corn muffins considering I still had all the ingerdients because I never did quite get to them the other day. (I do have to tell you that I altered this recipe a bit, using a can of creamed corn and apple sauce instead of oil and milk. They are the best darn muffins I've ever tasted, if I do say so myself. After all, I'm almost an expert, I've already eaten 3) The next thing I knew it was 5 o'clock and there wasn't a clean bowl or dish towel to be found. I imagine this is how Donna Reed's day would have gone, except that she would never run out of clean dish towels or bowls, and instead of napping on the couch waiting for her husband to come home, she was probably mixing him up the perfect Martini, apron still tied around her waist. Thank God my husband doesn't like Martinis!
