If you are my friend on facebook you have probably already seen the meals I have been cooking this last week. For those of you that haven’t… it all started because my T-mobile MyTouch 3G Slide makes it so easy for me to take a picture and within seconds literally have it posted to my facebook page. Well, I started taking pictures of our dinner with the hopes of inspiring some of my lazy and uninspired friends. Everyone is always so surprised when they see I cook dinner every day. Yes, I chase my hyper baby boy around all day. Yes, I have two jobs. Yes, I have plenty of other things to do… but cooking doesn’t have to take as much time as people think! And we all know there is nothing better than a home cooked meal! Some of my friends are shocked when I tell them we only eat out once every few months. There is just no need for it. It’s a waste of money in my eyes. Or as my husband likes to say, “I don’t like to eat out because I get better food at home.” ::smile::
So, I’ve decided to add my make-do meals and recipes to my blog postings because I hope it will inspire some of you, too! Maybe I will introduce you to an ingredient you’ve never heard of, or tell you about my way of cooking something, etc. I call them “make-do meals” because I don’t sit there and read a recipe book or search for them online. I literally will open the fridge, freezer, and pantry and decide what I am going to throw together right then and there. These are not Michelin restaurant recipes but they are quick, easy, yummy, and healthy (for the most part).
So here is what we ate for dinner tonight:
