For my birthday Ken got me Jamie's book and for the first time in my life I read a cookbook from beginning to end. It got me so excited about cooking. I know how to make a few dishes but I had been slacking on the home cooked meals lately. Enter in a big change and a promise to myself and my kids. Home cooked meals as much as possible. Each week I pick 3-4 recipes get my shopping list and pump myself up for a week of cooking. Two weeks in and it has been going really well. Really well until last night, I lost the mojo and the kids had mac and cheese. And it wasnt from scratch it was the bright orange powdered stuff and after I made that for the kids I made myself toast with peanut butter and honey. I was disappointed but also so tired and wiped that I couldnt even look at the kitchen.
Tonight I am happy to report I made mac and cheese again but instead of the processed stuff it was made from scratch with cauliflower in it that the kids ate right up. I cant say enough good things about Jamie Oliver and his style of cookbooks. Buy it I have tried a different recipe each night and I havent had one bad thing yet and I have learned SO much about cooking! Yay progress!!!
