I am really enjoying writing my food blog and a huge thank you to all of you who read it and send me comments. I really appreciate it and I love hearing from people who have made something they saw on my site. It inspires me to keep writing! Then it dawned on me… I have quite a few things I make, but probably like everyone else, there are about 10 things I seem to make all the time. It made me panic that I am going to run out of food I cook on an everyday basis and I can’t keep posting the same things over and over! I would be a little more experimental with my cooking but my 94-year old father-in-law lives with us, so I try and keep his meat and potato sensibility in mind when I am deciding what to cook. I have had him stretch his culinary boundaries a bit and he actually likes some Chinese, Thai and Indian food now which makes me happy. I think it’s important that making dinner most nights not always be a search for inspiration and something new, but a return to basic comfort food and recipes you know by heart and can put together quickly for a healthy, nutritious, homemade dinner. I came up with a template for winter and summer that I write some of the dishes my family likes as well as a few new recipes so I can glance at it before I go to the grocery store and plan the meals for a few days and not get stuck in a rut with no idea of what to make. Hope this helps you as well. Click here to print out….
