After many years of "what's for dinner" question and then the blank stare, I discovered one of the blessings of life - PLANNING! A weekly game plan for dinner. So tonight as I enjoy a tv date with the Big Guy, I pull out my recipe cards and tear out from cooking magazines. I search the internet as well but there is something glorious about flipping through cards of recipes that I have snatched out of magazines. Woman's Day, Better Homes and Garden Cooking Light, Family Circle, Country Woman, etc. - every visit to my Mother's house, I have leftover magazines from she and my grandmother to explore. I try out recipes that I never would have even thought of exploring the world wide web.
I know I have a whole chicken, fish, steaks, and lamb in the freezer. One night will be meatless - not for religious reasons, but in an attempt for healthy eating. If I ventured with more than one night without meat, my carnivore Big Guy would revolt! So off to plan 5 nights of food!
