Oh how I put Cooking Planit through the ultimate test! Prior to last night, I had only used this kitchen app to make a single dish. And typically, I have the bulk of a meal prepared before guests arrive. But last night… I invited Ginnean and Juliette ( FoodFash Junior in the making ) over for dinner and a slumber party. I left it up to Cooking Planit to keep me on track preparing multiple dishes while in the company of a good friend and her little munchkin.
Ninety-nine percent of the time, I’m out of this world organized. But give me a little outside distraction, like say company, and I lose things, drop things, maybe even burn things. Give me a lot of distraction, like the most adorable baby ever, and who knows what could happen.
This is where Cooking Planit had the opportunity to save my world, and it did. This app allowed me to make an entire meal AND spend time with my current company. I could chat with Ginnean while following each step, because I didn’t have to think about what came next. And I could clean up dishes chase Juliette around the house when there was dead time before the next step.

Homemade Bread (made earlier in the day)
We filled our plates with modern-day Thanksgiving sides, filled up our glasses with red, red wine, and sat on the back porch enjoying the almost-fall-feeling weather. Since Ginnean and I both favored the quinoa with butternut squash and pine nuts it acted as the main dish. And the pomegranate kale and sweet potato hash did a wonderful job acting as supporting sides. We even paired the leftover hash with an egg the next morning for a mighty delicious start to our day!
