Someone asked me yesterday if I cooked everyday.
My answer was that I cooked maybe once or twice a week.
When I do cook full meals these days,
they are shared with my sister, who lives upstairs,
and an elderly neighbor next door.
After years of getting meals on the table everyday,
while my daughter was growing up,
being an "occasional" cook is quite nice.
You might want to make this weekend an occasion
with these tasty tidbits.
1 c. Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
2T. butter, room temperature
Preheat oven to 400F.
Mix cheese, flour and butter in a large bowl
with your fingertips.
Add just enough water to make a stiff dough.
Don't over mix.
Roll dough into small (3/4-inch) balls.
Place on a greased cookie sheet
and bake about 15 minutes,
until lightly browned.
Makes about 20.
These are great as an appetizer,
or served with a salad or soup.
Back to the occasional cook...
I won't be doing any cooking this weekend.
I'm off tomorrow to visit my
darling daughter in NYC.
Although I won't be cooking,
I'm sure we'll be eating quite well!
