It's Saturday and ala Julie and Julia, we're making something from The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook.
Spurred by his recent success in the kitchen, Dooley is making omelettes for everyone today. And eldest daughter is making hash brown potatoes (from American Favorites, another Cook's Illustrated cookbook, currently available for only $17.50--buy it!.).
And I get to sit by and watch. This is a FIRST in our marriage. For the past 23 years, I have been the one bustling about in the kitchen on Saturday mornings. I don't know what to do with myself!
So the potatoes turned a little blue because daughter didn't cook them right away, but aside from the color, they were DELICIOUS.
The omelettes were terrific, although Dooley tried to cook them all at once and the outside of the egg was a little browned, and he wanted blond eggs. They tasted wonderful, though, and I felt downright pampered.
