As I write this, my very first homemade cheesecake (scratch that — my first EVER cheesecake) is baking in the oven, and I have a nearly finished chicken pot pie sitting on the counter, waiting for its turn in the oven. But I need to finish thawing the chicken first, so that I can chop it up and add it to the pie. Then I’ll whip up a pie crust (using Jiffy, hehe), and then viola, an awesomely delicious dinner will have its turn in the oven! Heh, I better watch the homemade goodness, or else I’ll be tipping the scales at 190 again!
I get into odd domestic “fits” like this. I’ve been wanting chicken pot pie for a while, and I thought that a cheesecake sounded absolutely yummy as soon as I spotted a pre-made one in the grocery store. But they wanted $12.99 for a premade! Instead I spent $3 on graham cracker crumbs, $4 on cream cheese and $2 on sour cream — and I have enough crumbs and sour cream left for 1-2 more cheesecakes. Besides, homemade is the best. ♥
