Last night's dinner: chicken pot pie.
Dessert: banana tart.
What's the big deal? I freaking cooked all of it from scratch! Scott cooked the chicken and chopped the vegetables for me, but I cooked it! I sauteed, I boiled, I baked, and I made PIE CRUST! (yes, it was just an excuse to eat more pie crust, I admit it)
...and it was damn good. It wasn't perfect, but it was a great jumping off point. And I know every single ingredient that went into it.
The banana tart was sort of just leftovers - the pie crust scraps rolled out into an amoeba shape and filled with 2 will-be-rotten-tomorrow bananas tossed with some melted butter and brown sugar. It wasn't pretty, but I'm seriously trying to figure out why people don't eat banana pie!
Well, I should stop patting myself on the back so I can go unload the dishwasher. What gets cooked must be cleaned!
