So this is my first blog entry. I have been pondering about doing this for a long time. So what I do that I think is different than a lot of other people is that I make a new recipe almost every night of the week. I really don't know how I began doing
this because as a child I was a very picky eater. Obvioulsy my older child, Jacob, has inherited this as well. I clip recipes from magazines and file this is a file box under catagories such as chicken, beef, pork, and sides etc. I have so many that this
is the only way I can stay organized. When I go grocery shopping I try and buy meat when it is on sale. Lately I have been buying all my beef and pork from a local cattle farmer that raisies the beef he butchers and his neighbor raises the pork. The business
is USDA inspected and we know where our meat comes from. This creates a lot of peace of mind for my family, as well as flavorful dishes. I usually freeze it immediately and then will create a week of menu from what I have in the freezer. This way I don't
buy onthe spur of the moment and pay regular prices. I pull recipes from the file that makes the best use of what I have available in my pantry as well. So once I make a new recipe, I ask my family what they thought of it. If it is a very good dish then
I will refile it with notes on the recipe. If it is not good, then I toss it. So that's my first post. I like variety when it comes to food so maybe this will inspire you to start a new recipe file also.
