It is my blogoversary. At least, in my notifications, WordPress wished me a Happy ANNIVERSARY. I could swear they called it a blogoversary in year’s past. Anyways, I have been publishing this blog for seven years now. Yay me, I guess. I would like to say something profound about it, but I am having a Tired Tuesday. I feared that I would.
I thought of doing, not exactly a cooking post, but a What We Had For Supper post. Steven had a craving for Chinese food. Rather than sending out for delivery or even pick up, I suggested I go to Hannaford and pick up some frozen stuff we could pop into the oven. I was pretty sure they had some Chinese appetizers, and appetizers are what we like best.
As I was driving home, I thought to myself, “OK, don’t let Steven throw away these boxes before I make my blog post, because I won’t remember exactly what these were.” Sometimes my husband gets a little too enthusiastic about cleaning up, a quality I definitely do NOT share. And now it is time to hang my head in shame, because guess who threw the boxes out? Yes, I did. Do I remember what I fixed? Not exactly.
The standout were Potstickers, that I remember. I had to cook them in oil in a pan, then add water, cover, and steam. That is obviously a little more complicated than just putting it in the oven, but I was up to the challenge. It was worth it. Yummy! The stuff I put in the oven was a little complicated, too, because of course out of three things, none were the same temperature nor the same amount of time. Also, I do not own three flat pans that fit conveniently on my two oven racks. Oh, the trials and tribulations!
By now I suppose any new readers are wondering how in the world I managed to make seven years’ worth of blog posts if this is the kind of material I write. I confess I sometimes wonder myself. But what are you going to do on a Tired Tuesday?
