Oh, I make dinner. I have some old stand bys that everyone likes, and I make them. But I am bored of the same old s***. But, I do not have the desire to peruse through cookbooks, buy some wacky ingredients and make a lot of dishes for myself to clean. What's a girl to do?
I've been looking at a lot of the Mom's websites, and I have to say that I am very impressed. All of you seem to love cooking! (or you are very good at pretending that you love it) How do you get there from where I am right now? I would love to LOVE COOKING.
I don't even bake. Yes, my children have been deprived of home baked cookies. Sure, I make the Pillsbury seasonal cookies that are rolled up, and you cut, slice and bake. But, that's cheating, right? I also think that I have made them once a year for Christmas, and everyone eats them within a couple of days. I don't think that they ever make it into the decorative tin box.
So, I have decided to challenge myself, and I am writing this blog so that you make me stick to it, ask me for updates, whatever. I intend to make one new dish a week (and it has to be lowfat) until Christmas. I'll start next week because I still have to figure out which day is the best for my experiment. I may be looking on some websites for ideas because I'm sick of looking at my stupid cookbooks because they are covered in dust.
Since it is lowfat, I would also like to lose 20 lbs. before Christmas, but I don't want to get crazy over here. I still like beer, and I still want to watch the Giants and Yankees, but I'm going to stop eating salsa and chips for lunch (LOL...no, it really happened today, but I didn't have the salsa...so I didn't even have vegetables!)
I guess that's it. I better save this so I don't chicken out.
