KISS THE COOK -- SHE'LL KISS YOU BACK
I do love to cook! Sally, this is what you and the other volunteers coming to our all-day MoveOn GOTV calling party tomorrow can expect for munchies:
Bagels and cream cheese
Tuna salad and chicken salad (for sandwiches or not)
Smoked salmon and cream cheese
Brown sugar smokies
Louisiana shrimp casserole
I get a rush just out of reading cookbooks. Last week was our oldest daughter's birthday. This was the menu for her birthday dinner:
Blackened catfish filets
Onion dijon crusted catfish
Marsala-glazed carrots with pecans
Cream potatoes and green beans
Wedge salad with raspberry vinaigrette
Olive-cream cheese dip
My son asked me, "Mom, why do you have to make it so hard on yourself?" I told him, when I'm cooking I'm not thinking about politics. Everyone needs a break once in a while, and cooking seems to be the only thing that gets my mind off the critical mass we're approaching in this country.
Plus, cooking is an act of love, and when someone eats your food and enjoys it, there's an exchange of grace.
