Why have my posts been so blah?
And so few?
Blame CPA Mom. She recommended the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon and I can’t stop reading. How on earth did I not know these books existed? I am so hooked. I am going to the library tomorrow and getting all of them. I don’t want to have to wait if I finish one.
Thanks for your dinner tips. I’m so sick of my own cooking it’s not even funny.
A few months ago I took a hard look at what I was feeding my family. I wasn’t thrilled with what I saw. Mostly Hamburger Helper (cause it helps hamburger make a great meal). Not the healthiest or the tastiest but pretty damn easy. I decided no more Hamburger Helper. I plan meals for the week, make a shopping list, shop on Saturday and cook three or four meals on Sunday. On the days I work Sis just throws a pan in the oven so we can eat when I get home at six. With all the excitement last weekend, I didn’t make a meal list or cook anything ahead of time. I basically screwed myself up good.
Now I’m having food dilemmas.
- The Big Guy. He is not a picky eater but he likes a meal. The girls and I are happy with salad and grilled chicken. He wants meat, starch, vegatable. I’ll throw scrambled egg sandwiches at him once in a while but he wants a real supper for the most part. He very rarely says he doesn’t like something. I can think of only twice in the time we have been together. And he doesn’t say, “Damn, woman that was awful!” He’ll say some thing like, “Do you think we could not have that again?”
- Anything I make has to be nukeable. The Big Guy doesn’t eat until around midnight.
- I need more recipes. I’ll have to take some time and search the net. After I finish these books.
- The food I would make ahead is mostly casseroles. I don’t want hearty casseroles in the summer.
Now that I have bored you with more crap, I’m going back to 1743 Scotland. Thanks CPA Mom!
