A Day in the Life of…


It’s 8:05 pm, and I just got home from the kitchen.  It’s been a good day.  Our previous group left yesterday after lunch, and today’s group (a Ladies’ Quilting Group) arrived mid-afternoon. That meant I didn’t have to get up before the sun.  {I really like that part.}

Knowing I didn’t have a blog post ready for today, I grabbed my camera on the way out the door this morning.  I thought I’d show you what my day looked like.

Here’s the “To Do” list:

to do list

I needed to do some prep work for tomorrow, as well as prepare supper for tonight.  Here’s what it looked like:



…making mini cheesecake bites.  Of course, I forgot to take a picture of them finished!


…2 dozen hard boiled eggs (for tomorrow’s chef salad bar)

boiled and smashed potatoes

With some fear and trepidation, I tried out a new way to do “smashed potatoes”.  This is right after they were boiled and smashed.  {I seasoned them and put them in the oven later.}


Emma was my “sous chef” today.  She put together a beautiful fruit platter for tomorrow’s breakfast.

Tonight’s supper was:

roasted chicken

…roasted chicken,

roasted winter veggies

roasted winter veggies (carrots, sweet potatoes, and rutabagas),

smashed potatoes

and smashed potatoes.  {They turned out great.  I’ll do them that way again.}

{Of course, I didn’t get in the picture the salad or homemade bread, and the beet pickles that the ladies loved!:)}

pantry inventory 2

I’ve been trying all week to find some time to get our pantry inventory written down to help with future ordering, and I finally got that done, too.

Tomorrow and the next day, I’m taking off (yippee!), so I finished my day by writing Connie a note to catch her up on things.

Now I’m relaxing at home resting my feet.

After working around all that food today…I always find myself hungry about this time of day.  And you know what I want?

A bowl of Lucky Charms!;)

  1. Aloha,

    You have great handwriting. Too bad cursive doesn’t seem to be taught these days. My auntie (deceased for quite some time now) had beautiful copperplate handwriting.
