Dinner tonight was pretty basic, but well enjoyed. I made a beef stew in my crock pot -- including lots of barley and kidney beans to add bulk and overall yumminess for so very little money-- served with homemade bread and homemade butter.
I suspect that my obsession with making everything at home and by hand is my version of a mid-life crisis, but so far I am loving it and having a lot of fun. Husbandly One has clearly decided to just roll with it and let me do my thing. After all, I'm not hurting anyone and he is getting some great meals out of the deal.
Oh, my project for this coming weekend? Homemade laundry soap! I may also attempt Version Three of the Cheese Fiasco, but don't worry: I won't do both at the same time!
