It has been a busy, busy week -- sorry for the silence on the blog!
Saturday was a day of domestic duties. Younger Daughter was off with friends and Older Daughter had an outdoor project she was working on, so the domestic duties fell my way.
I did a lot of cooking/baking. Here are the makings for two apple pies. In the back is a bowl of dough rising for a double batch of English muffins (just before putting it in the oven to let rise).
After this, I made three quiches.
Then I finished the English muffins. Here the dough has gone through the first rising. I rolled and cut the dough while Older Daughter brushed the muffins with water and dipped them in cornmeal before letting them go through the second rising.
(Mostly) unbaked loot for the day: English muffins, apple pies, quiche.
Naturally all this industriousness left the kitchen a disaster. Don wondered if there were any dishes I hadn't dirtied. Before...
...and after. (Much better!)
Besides kitchen stuff, I also washed and hung four loads of laundry, using both the folding rack...
...as well as the hanging rack Don made me last year after our clothes line broke. We haven't gotten around to fixing the outdoor clothes line yet, but that's okay -- the indoor ones work great.
That was my Saturday.
