Yesterday we had a bunch of friends over for one last summer hurrah. We have such a wonderful backyard for kids. In fact, all 11 kids ages 4-12 played kick the can as did a few of the adults too. What a fun night. Our cookout was blessed with so many wonderful foods! I made venison beans that everyone loves - even those that think they don't like venison, like this recipe. I think I need to post that one here. I also made a cold spaghetti salad and some tomato mozzarella bites. Both of those recipes I got from Allrecipes. Both were a hit. I really enjoy cooking for friends, but really don't like the every day cooking - I can never figure out what to make. I find it stressful sometimes.
During the school year, I also cook once a month for our Church. I am looking forward to trying some new recipes this year. I have a small budget to work with and find it challenging, but fun to find good meals to prepare for 80-100 people.
This is my first post to this blog. I hope you'll join me in my adventures of cooking and share your ideas and thoughts too. I know I'm not the only SAHM who stresses over what to make for dinner each night.
