"I just want to tell you I am cooking under protest." Tommy just looked at me blankly, probably trying to figure out what just happened. My sttement was not colored with any emotion, just a flat statement in a calm voice. It was already 8 pm.
Sunday night, I was just not feeling cooking. He never asks or harrasses me about cooking.Good for him. He really is easy to please since he does not know how to cook. Well, mostly. I must look like a miracle-maker, a cooking god with magical powers.
If it were up to me, some nights, I would not cook at all, just nibble. Do you ever feel that way? Actually, I just wanted another pan of brownies. However, I was not tempted at all.
Salmon Croquettes seemed like a great idea since I had thawed nothing. Well, I passed a can of tuna on the way to the salmon and used that. But, I thought I had no onions, so I left them out. Note to myself---> never leave out the onions in the croquettes! It turned out there were about 6 onions here!
I used the Lodge skillet for the first time, and after greasing it with bacon grease two times and heating and cooking bacon once, it was perfectly non-stick. Then, I made a grilled cheese sandwich in it and it still did not stick. I am calling it good, never washing it and keeping it in the oven. The croquettes did not stick at all even though I feared the worst.
A can of green beans was opened. I should have opened collards instead. They go better with croquettes.
While I was muttering in my head about onions, I decided I will buy dried onions for times I have no onions. I used them early in my marriage, but have not used them for about 40 years. It's time. I have no idea if onions will be available or not in the future. I had jars of dehydrated Vidalia onion but no more since they are in the dump. If I could get to my dehydrator I would dehydrate more onions.
Do you ever NOT want to cook and have no good reason? I was not ill, tired, too busy.
Do you ever use commercially dehydrated onions? Or, do you dehydrate your own?
