Somehow we just slipped into the past two weeks and not one sighting of a menu was to be found. Funny how those big ideas last for a while and then fade away. But I’m holding out for a comeback this week… The menu document is opened and I’ve been reading some really good ideas again on food…
And a testimony on life without menus was pure drudgery! I asked Jason to cook last Tuesday because I had a full day and he actually had off work that day- which turned out being a pleasant night off kitchen duty! I have found that when I don’t have meals planned it’s a hassle to try to come up with something.
Some foods on the list for next week are:
- Bbq green beans –oohh w/ bacon!
- Veggies with Greek seasoning… (just read about that one and excited to try it! (After I find it…)!)
- Rice (I have lots and hardly ever use it)
- Homemade pizza
- Tuna sandwiches
I’m trying to get away from these all too easy, quick fillers:
- Baked potatoes
- Chicken casseroles galore
(I’m depressed just reading that L)
I hope I motivated some of you who find cooking to be more of a research project then a walk in the park.
Which is why I posted a pic of our V-day meal -(if you can follow this spaghetti noodle) To inspire you (and myself) again.
[Disclaimer -Actually, Jason and I made that meal together.]
I can cook. It doesn’t take long to whip up a meal once I have a menu in mind. That is the hardest part for me usually – in fact, it’s getting the meat part decided that I moan-fully dread. As soon as that is decided, I’m off filling in the rest of the pieces – no prob-lem-o! I just never know what to make for the main course. . .
So this post is me asking for more yummy recipe ideas, especially for delish ways to make/use rice. I didn’t grow up with it and we have an entire bag that was given to us from our house/wedding shower way back when we first got married – almost 5 whole months ago! It seems like we’ve been married for a long time sometimes but then again, not really. Who says men are not complex???
