It's been just about a year since I quit my last job, assistant manager at TJ Maxx, but everytime I cook I
think of one of the associates I managed, we'll call her Ingrid...I've changed her name for two reasons:
1. I can't remember it right now
2. Just in case she finds me on fb or blogger...lol
Ingrid and I worked together a lot and I would chat with her about my life outside of TJ Maxx because I couldn't stand working there...anything to separate myself from people thinking the only thing I did was work was well worth it...hah
So, we would discuss cooking, the beach, etc...one day I told her I was so excited I had made lemon bars for the first time..mmmm I used a box mix the first time, it was decent. Then, the next week I decided to try it from scratch, my favorite way to cook, and they were AMAZING!! Since then I have adjusted the recipe for lime and organge bars, as well...mmm.
Anyhow, I told Ingrid of my new found lemon bar recipe from scratch and she didn't understand what I meant by scratch...
"from scratch, what does from scratch mean, Miss Kelly?"
So, I explained and she thought I was something incredible...Hah! Here's the recipe for those that are interested (I have some adjustments that I've done, so msg me and I'll give em to ya)
SOOO I am inspired, yet again!! I am going to make a list of other things that I have made by scratch and things I plan to make by scratch:
Things I have made from scratch:
ground meat..i don't trust the stores anymore!
and so much more....
Things I PLAN to make by scratch real soon:
more pasta (need to perfect the process)
my mind is blank...the possibilities are endless..
Summer is over.
the warmth is gone.
long days are numbered
fall is near.
leaves are changing
winds are cooling
snow is coming.
the seasons are changing....
