Homemaking Mondays: Puttering In the Kitchen

Hello! Thanks for dropping by!
Do you love to get in the kitchen and just putter about?
I'm not talking about the necessary meals, but 
just spending time there because you like to?
 I sure's a fun place to be. 

This week while puttering in the kitchen, feeding my sourdough starter...
I got to wondering what to do with the discard this time round. 
Then I remembered a recipe from a new cookbook I have for 
sourdough crackers.  (The Prairie Homestead Cookbook)
I happened to need some crackers so...
time to get a bit dirty! hehehe

I made my crackers a bit thick, but they were so very delicious!
I cooked them in the wood cookstove oven and they came out so nice.
Even my son who isn't fond of anything sourdough liked them.

They are light and flaky and perfect in soup. 
That is what we used them for first.

Next we needed a quick snack so out came the 
crackers, peanut butter, and marshmallows. 

Usually I use soda crackers, but these were so much better! 

Another puttering I did in the kitchen this week was to separate up 
a ham that I got on discount at the grocery store. 
 I don't have a meat slicer...just a knife and my not so great slicing skills.
I think we're set for ham for quite a while.
For sandwiches, soup, and omelettes. 

This soup is creamy ham and potato.  
I added onions, peppers, carrots and parsley in a bit of butter. 
Then the potatoes and water with some salt and pepper.
At the end I added some flour mixed with sweet buttermilk to thicken it.

Sometimes just puttering about the kitchen is making a lovely cup of tea.
Straightening up a few things or wiping up some stray crumbs. 
One thing I need to get better at is sweeping more through the day.

Do you putter in your kitchen just because? 
What do you like to do/make?

Love and Prayers,

I guess I don't putter in the kitchen! :-) I had to think about that question. Your crackers look delicious. I've been wanting to do sourdough bread but haven't gotten around to making a starter yet.
