Better Than We Deserve
Did it make you want to shop for ingredients and pots and pans
Did it make you want to throw a dinner get together
See, I am neither a Julie or a Julia, I am not gifted in the kitchen, although I did make marriage ceremony cakes for some time to earn extra cash from house.. but I never took House Ec and that i cried when my mother made me make hamburger patties out of uncooked meat.
However dinner is one other factor. And this film made me wish to cease whining about my ugly kitchen and start cooking. Add to that my sister’s enthusiasm for “The Meals Nanny”, which she received me hooked on, and i decided to cease making excuses and start learning how one can cook.
I’ve a purpose to make not less than 2 new recipes per week..anything goes, from cookies to casserole, in the quest of expanding my dinner choices.
Thus far my youngsters have given the thumbs right down to the lemon pound cake I made and the parsley potatoes we tried. A scalloped ham and potato dish got their approval, while the rack of cute lazy hairstyles for short hair BBQ ribs I burned to a crisp were still picked at, in spite of the charcoal outer coating. I should add I made the most DIVINE brownies ever, and had to provide myself a pat on the again. The rooster enchilada soup my friend made (and handed me the recipe with a smile) has change into a new crock pot favorite. I DVR Sandra Lee and Food Nanny and take notes. (Why do they all cook with their hair down Am I the only one which sheds )
I cannot be running a blog usually about my cooking adventures, however just wondered how other moms hold it collectively and manage to provide you with a dinner every night. (Again, Food Nanny is helping me here). I’m in awe of the properly set desk.
I really like the thought of a sit down meal extra usually- Tv off and every thing.
I am anxious to hear what the dinner traditions are in other busy homes. I consider that dinner time is vital, and decided to deliver my household collectively around the desk more than I’ve up to now.
