Sometimes, you have to channel Cartman and do what you want.
For me, that time is lately. And what do I want to do? I want to sleep in, go to barre class everyday, cook good food, and watch episodes of the new season of Fargo with Brendan. "What-Eva! I'll do what I want!"
If anyone is looking for last minute gift ideas for a person that loves to cook, I have two great suggestions:
Smitten Kitchen and Sheet Pan Suppers; both of these were given to us as gifts, and we've had a great time cooking recipes from them lately. They both feature beautiful photos and step by step directions. Smitten Kitchen is a little more advanced, but anyone can do it as long as they have some time. Sheet Pan Suppers is wonderful for great dinners that don't take a long time to cook. Actually, last night, I assembled the dinner on the pan, so Brendan could just put it in the oven while I was at barre. I'm always looking for dinners like this, since I workout at night Monday-Thursday and don't always want to leave the cooking to Brendan!

And now, I'm returning to my regularly scheduled programming of doing what I want!
