Start Each Day in a Happy Way

It's a Wednesday and what do I seem to be doing on Wednesdays anymore...yup it's cooking! Tomorrow we celebrate Hannah's confirmation in our Catholic Parish. There's of course the Bishop who's coming out to perform the Confirmation Mass and the dinner we parishioners are catering. Our theme is Italian foods.., now who doesn't like Italian food? I mean really!
So here I am. surrounded by meatballs. I've made over 300 of them so far and I still have 2½ pounds ( that's a little over 1kg) of meat to go. The question is...should I open those packages of ground pork and beef (that's "mince" for my friends here in the UK) or should I take a break and call it good? I vote for a break, I think that I deserve one. Oh and all the time while I've been cooking and rolling meatballs I've been having to run outside and move the sprinkler around-ugh!

After my break then I'm on to chopping and dicing fruits and veggies to make chicken salad for tomorrows lunch and possibly (if I haven't fainted from pure exhaustion at this point) making some mini cheesecake desserts for the dinner tomorrow-again that is IF!

Time for a break...toast with jam and tea..m'm!

Ooooh, I would have loved to see a picture of you surrounded by those meatballs! Maybe an idea for next time :)
All that chatting about food and no picture makes the ladies go mad. LOL

wow I am in awe of your marathon cooking session. I think we need photos and a recipe for the meatballs.

Go you! Hope the Confirmation service is a joy for you all. We celebrated with our Godson at Portsmouth Cathedral last is one of the nicest services I think.

Don't be too unhappy at having to move the sprinkler round after all that means the weather's good :)
