I have a confession to make.  I hate to cook.

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 (, it really happened today, but I didn't have the I didn't even have vegetables!)
I guess that's it.  I better save this so I don't chicken out.

Update: I've lost 3.5 lbs. so far, although watching the Yankee game last night might have set me back a bit. I'm not weighing myself until next week, though.

Haven't tried any new recipes YET.

I have a confession to make: Like you, I don't enjoy cooking. I'm not even crazy about baking. I do it, but I don't like it and I'm not crazy about following recipes. At all.
