In perusing one of the cooking blogs I regularly read yesterday, I found that Kristin of Dine and Dish (a long time feature on my blog roll) is also the star of a weekly column called Dishing it Up Weekend Style.
I don't know if you've noticed, but I LOVE cooking on weekends when I have time and the pressure's off. During the week it's all "oh, no I just got back from rehearsal and I'm HUNGRY... must. find. food. ARGGGGGG". That last part is actually the sound of D. turning into a monster, and preparing to take a large bite out of my upper arm if we can't get something more appealing on the table soon.
But on the weekends there's time for all sorts of things: stocks, and roasts, and pancakes for breakfast - the whole kit and caboodle (or is it the whole kitten caboodle - which is how I've always thought of it in my head? Like a furry pile of kittens... but I digress).
Kristin is calling for ideas for weekend recipes (the deadline is tomorrow!) and she's drawing one lucky person out of a hat (or the computer equivalent - I'm old-fashioned) to win one of these beautifully creative aprons from Etsy by Julie.
What do you guys cook on the weekends? Do you cook more elaborate things, or on the contrary, do you take a break from cooking on the weekend. If you have time, you should share your recipes with Kristin too (I mean selfishly I hope you don't because I want more chances to win that gorgeous apron), but I'm sure she'd be happy to have them.
