Julia Childs' Worst Nightmare

Tonight I am cooking in the attempt to earn my keep! As I have mentioned in my passed posts, I have not been working for the better half of a month and, I am going nuts to say the least! I thought this was what I really wanted, once I got married, to be a housewife, sitting , laying, walking around looking pretty all day - one of my best talents. Unfortunately to my surprise it is not as glamorous at is sounds.

So I am taking up new hobbies, like cooking. I think it is about time I offer Prince Charming more than a variety of five dishes on regular rotation. He is out there working to the grind each day just to keep me happy, so I am ready to return the favor (in a new way)! Tonight I am starting out with cooking 101,
Eggplant Parmesan

Hopefully this dish is fool proof! Wish me luck! I will have Tums, Mylox, and Pepcid AC on hand should Prince Charming start to kill over...

Here's to new begininngs!

  9. Hope it turns out well. I'm Italian, so the ability to make anything parmesan is kind of in my blood.

    Seriously, I highly recommend the William Sonoma series of cookbooks. I have a bunch that I got eons ago and I continue to make a number of recipes in them. They would probaby be under their WS Essentials series today.

    Happy cooking!

  10. Did you put new batteries in the smoke detector? That's how I know when dinner's done.

    Good luck - - I hope this gets you out of doing dishes.

  11. Good luck!
    I did the stay-home thing for a while, too, but not by choice. (I was between jobs after my husband got transfered to another state.)
    I went nuts cooking everything under the sun. It didn't help that we were temporarily in an apartment and everything we owned was in storage. If it wasn't for house-hunting and job-seeking, I'd have lost it.
    At least we ate well!

    I gave you an award over at my blog:
