Umm yeah…about that. To be completely and totally honest with you, cooking is NOT my thing. I have never been a fan of the kitchen, grocery shopping, washing dishes or anything remotely involved with being in the kitchen other than grabbing a cookie or something to drink. I don’t particularly like food in that manner, if I didn’t need to eat to survive or make milk for my baby I probably wouldn’t. However, eating is a necessity not only for me but for the Mr. and my babies so I do what I can and stick to the basics, and quite frankly I am getting real tired of the basics.
Ironically my mother was an awesome cook. My friends would look forward to coming over after school or before football games on Friday nights to get something yummy to eat, and she never disappointed. Chili, spaghetti, fried chicken there was always something different and I never appreciated it until she passed away. Lucky for us, along with an awesome legacy she also left notebooks full of recipes that she collected while she was here.
I have been thinking about her alot lately and in her honor I have decided to put her hardwork to use by trying at least one recipe a week (heaven help me). To kick off my efforts next week is officially named “New Eats Week”. All of my recipes for next week have to be selected by Friday, in time for my weekly trip to the grocery store. I am sure I will need to get spices and a few new condiments, two things which have deterred me in the past but not anymore. I am putting on my apron and taking a go at it. Don’t worry you will get all of the commentary along with pictures next week!
About as deep as my spice game gets
Great..even the baby thinks me being in the kitchen is a joke!
