The problem: My klutziness
The result: I caught an oven mitt on fire while roasting red peppers. I was trying to turn the peppers and got a little too close and well, you can guess what happened.
Don’t worry, no injuries resulted in my pyrotechnic mishap. Though my oven mitt is looking a little sorry. All this in the name of making lots of food for an upcoming busy week. I should just stick to sandwiches apparently.
Anyway, this weekend has just been insane. I did get my six mile walk in Saturday morning and then, a few coworkers and I helped another coworker move to a new apartment. Four flights of stairs, lots of boxes, and cold weather later, we were finished. We all were ready to collapse by the end of it and ordered a family style KFC dinner, which we gobbled up in a hurry. Everyone was starving and more than a little sore.
And I was supposed to get all sorts of things done this morning, but my pipes froze again! I didn’t have water for hours. No me gusta.
But it eventually came back on, and I ultimately made it to the grocery store and started cooking for the week. I’m making roasted red pepper soup ( I ❤ it) and a roast for the weekend. The soup was first up because the roast is going to cook in the crock pot over night. And it means I get to use my new blender that my sister gave me for Christmas!
Next up: Tangy Beef Roast from Fix It and Forget It. While the soup simmers and before I start in on the beef, I think it’s time for a glass of wine from the bottle I bought for the soup. 🙂
