Preparations – #JusJoJan

I love cooking but I have come to the conclusion I need a sous-chef de cuisine. Someone to do all the measuring and chopping and setting up my station with all the ingredients set up ready for me to create!

Today I am attempting to make fresh rolls to make meatball subs using the meatballs I made yesterday. I love bread making (even if it does not turn out the smell is divine! 😂) but there are a few steps I could allow someone else to prepare for me.

Then I need a dishwasher. I am THAT cook that seems to dirty more dishes than necessary. I am not crazy about the cleanup that follows one of my forays into new recipes.

I would love to be that cook that waltzes into the dining room without flour in my hair, guests seated with anticipation in their eyes as I say, “Prepare to be amazed!” Unfortunately I’m not quite there yet!

  1. I am thankful that Tim is the dishwasher. He’s not a good sous chef, however. Here in Quebec, there is VERY limited counter space for food prep, so I’m keeping to my minimalist tendencies. But I do tire of chopping and prepping vegetables; I totally get the appeal of pre-chopped, although I’m too cheap to buy vegetables that way. Hope your rolls turned out well!

    1. I do not like pre-chopped vegetables. They tend to be dry I on the chopped edges. We have a system of sharing kitchen responsibilities that works for us. Hubby loves to cook, but I am picky with my chopped veggies.


    1. I try to do that as well. That is why I love soups and things with long cooks. It gives me a lot of time to clean as I go.


  2. I have tried to cook most things, but I never bake bread, or make cakes. When my wife does that, it takes longer to clear up the mess than to eat the results. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
