I describe myself as a full-time mom. Every so often, however, I have the opportunity to work as a personal chef. This past year my "income" (not even sure we can call it that!) was about half of the year before, but cooking is something that I love to do, and if I occasionally get paid to do it, that's bonus! Sometimes I fear that if I had to do this full-time, I would probably hate it, so I feel blessed that it's something I can do occasionally!
March will be a little more hectic than the past winter has been, I have three parties to prepare for and we will also celebrate Kate's birthday! I have a party at my friend's store this Wednesday, it's her "Spring Fling". When we were picking the menu, we tried to aim for lighter fare with colorful "springy" flavors. I hope the weather holds out for her, it would be fun to have a warmer day (I think everyone is in a better mood, and probably spends more!).
Here is what I'll be making:
Hot Crab Dip with bread cubes and crudites
Mexican Layer Dip with tortilla chips
Mini [grilled] Veggie Sandwiches
Assorted Cookie Tray
Later in the month I'll be cooking for my sister-in-laws birthday party (we're having grilled veggie ravioli) and I'm also preparing food for an Easter Egg Hunt.
I hope to be organized enough to take pictures of some of the finished products!
Here's to a [hopefully] sunny and warm-ish March filled with good food!
