For the last three days of our holiday vacation, my husband and I decided we were going to be hermits and hibernate. Yep, that meant no work, difficult chores and etc. Seeing that our normal life is hectic, we generally do not get this sort of relaxed treatment so we were totally besides ourselves. Then I got the urge to get into the kitchen and make something for dinner. Sadly, my inspiration was a new glass pyrex set of dishes with lids that we got for Christmas, per our request. I decided to make something with the large casserole dish since it looked so inviting and I couldn't remember the last time I made anything in a casserole type of dish.
Okay, so maybe it was only 10AM but I was totally into making the dish. I decided to make a homey (continuing with our hibernation theme) three vegan cheese pasta dish. I pre-cooked everything and then tossed it into the refrigerator. I was so thrilled to have a tin-foil covered dish in our kitchen waiting for dinner. I happily announced to my husband that he finally got an American housewife. Well, maybe one in training? I cook everyday but nothing that requires a casserole dish or re-heating it in the oven hours later.
Then my husband announced that the normal "American housewife" probably would make a casserole and set it in the fridge for later re-heating by the incompetent husband that can't cook while the wife was away. Ah, well, at least I tried... Thankfully it turned out great and the husband had 1.5 bowls full! That's a record I think, hooray!
As you can tell we didn't get any exercise in today (besides some fun situps on the exercise ball) but it was our day off so I'm not too disappointed.
Note: Sorry about the photo, it wasn't the best quality but my DSLR photos are too large to put on sp. So, this is a cell phone shot. I will have better photos on my personal blog at genkikitty.wordpress.com by 1/4/2012.
