I've been known to get frustrated to the point of tears when it comes to coming up with meal ideas. I just struggle in the kitchen. It's a mixture of not feeling confident, trying to keep to a somewhat limited budget, and....well....laziness. But, if my family has to eat spaghetti one more time they may turn into noodles, so I'm gearing up to try some new creative dinners. I know grocery shopping and cooking does not have to be a form of torture - I have friends who actually enjoy it, so I am in the middle of an attitude overhaul.
I found this blog posting today, which links to the weekly menu of 192 different women. A little (lot) overwhelming, but just clicking around for a few minutes I found a few new meal ideas. And it's encouraging to think that if 192 women can plan menus, and find time to post them online complete with recipes, I can at least cook dinner each night without tears involved. Tonight I'm trying "Fiesta Soup" served with cornbread. Let's all hope for the best.
Update: The Soup was a moderate hit. Here's the recipe:
Fiesta Soup2 cans chicken broth
I hear ya, honey! There's nothing that stresses me out more during the day than what we're going to eat for dinner!! I was actually going to blog about this myself, but I've found some excellent quick and easy meal ideas from Jessica Seinfeld's "Deceptively Delicious" cookbook. She also has recipes on her website and on the Oprah website. Check it out at http://www.deceptivelydelicious.com/site/
Sounds yummy! What time should I be over? ;-)
oh girl, menu planning used to be easy, but it has gotten harder and I think I have gotten lazier! Plus, not knowing if Mike will be home for dinner or not makes it even more of a challenge! I will definitely be checking out that blog. And that soup looks great...and EASY!!! I love just opening a few cans and dumping it in and it tasting good!
