Some days I feel like I never even leave the kitchen.
Today is definitely one of those days. And, I even went to town this afternoon.
But, I spent the morning getting dinner ready and the late afternoon getting supper ready.
This is really my first year “officially” cooking for the farm.
The women around our farm rotate weeks on who cooks the noon meal. During busy times of year (a.ka. planting and harvest) we cook twice a day. For seven days, instead of our normal six.
Since starting my first week of two meals a day I have realized two things:
1. I must not freak out about the grocery bill.
2. They really should sell sandwich buns in bulk at every grocery store.
When you are cooking 6 days a week, twice a day, and you are feeding 4 guys; who normally want two sandwiches a piece, you are looking at roughly 84 to 96 sandwiches in one week. I say roughly because it depends if our hired hand is around or not, or if my father in law gets hungry too.
It can be rather fun to come up with 12 different types of sandwich meals that aren’t too messy to be eaten while a tractor is moving.
If anyone has any suggestions for simple, easy sandwich recipes please send them my way!
