Happy mid-week, y’all!
It’s my second “What are you…” Wednesday. Last week, as you may recall, I asked what you are reading. I got a lot of replies on my FB to that question and I’m VERY thankful to have some great reading recommendations. I’m currently reading A Man Called Ove and even though I don’t have much reading time these days, I’m still really enjoying it. I’m excited to work through other recommendations that were given to me last week. THANK YOU for those and be sure to keep an eye out, reader friends, because I’ll be asking what you’re reading again soon.
What are you eating?
I am not a food blogger. I feel like I should just put that out there right off the bat. I share recipes and photos, but I’m really just a wife and mom who enjoys cooking for her family. There’s nothing fancy about my cooking at all. Thank goodness, fancy and tasting great don’t have to go hand in hand. (Can I get a witness?) When I ask what you’re eating today, it’s because I’m looking for kitchen inspiration. One of my 2017 aspirations is to incorporate new meals/recipes into our family’s routine. Besides convenience when schedules are busy, sometimes the reason we eat out is that I find myself bored with the “same old stuff” I often cook and want something different. Given that cooking for my family is something I enjoy, I want to find more dishes that become go-to staples in our household. Will you help me with that? Here’s the catch. I don’t eat red meat or pork. That doesn’t lend to much variety, I know, but I don’t eat those things and haven’t for more than 20 years. (In other words, I’m not apt to pick that back up again.) Sometimes I will prepare a roast with veggies or do BBQ pork loin in the crock pot for Mickey and the girls, but red meat and pork dishes are not commonly prepared. For our basic dinners, I tend to stick to poultry and fish. Ground turkey and chicken are staples around here, as you can imagine. I need some motivation, y’all…some kitchen inspiration. What are your family’s favorite meals, especially dinners? I would love to get recipes, links, anything. It can be make-ahead meals, crock pot meals, soups, casseroles…I want it all! I would even like some red meat and pork recipes because, hey, sometimes I make those for the family. Whatcha got, friends? Bring it on! Inspire me!
I really hope to get some feedback on this because I am in a rut and I need help. In turn, I promise to keep sharing some of our favorite recipes on the blog too.
Here’s to good cookin’…
