New Recipe Challenge

1 Sep

*This post does not contain pictures. Please don’t cry. It would make me very sad, and I promise to make up for it next time.*

In my last post I mentioned that I was making a new recipe and that I would explain more about that in a future post. Oh! Why, hello Future!

A few months ago, I noticed I was in a rut when it came to making dinner. I felt like we were having the same things repeatedly (my wonderful Husband never complained) and I really dreaded making dinner. The latter was unusual for me. I love to cook! To combat the chokehold the dinner rut had on me I decided I would challenge myself. Why not make it a little more interesting, eh? So here it is. Brace yourself; it’s a doozy!

Once  a week I find a new recipe and I make it for dinner.

Blows the mind, doesn’t it? ;)

Seriously though, I’ve found it’s helped. I even enjoy planning out our weekly menu (I actually plan a week and a half) because I get to search for our next new meal and because I have a growing selection to choose from now. I find something new I think my fam would enjoy, make it, and add the recipe to my book if it’s a winner. Simple enough.

Just thought I’d share with you my fix for the dinner time blues. Maybe it might help you sometime, too.

P.S. I have a date with a girl friend tonight. It’s Momma’s Night Out! These evenings don’t come around very often, but man am I glad when they do! I’ve got to finish whipping up some snacks for tonight and making sure there aren’t any hidden snacks between the couch cushions or puzzle pieces located where they don’t belong (kitchen cabinets, shoes, toilet, my purse).

P.S.S. My favorite time of year starts THIS Saturday!!! It’s college football season, baby! And you betcha this little Wildcat family will be decked out in overwhelming amounts of purple! A-Waa-hoo!
