Well....make that a big sigh.Hubs is deploying again. Short notice. Unexpected....and sucks to say the least. We are having our housewarming party this weekend (welcome to the area, nice to meet you, see you in half a year). BAH.But anyway....this is my first time living on the West…
I'm a military wife just living it up around the world. My husband and I prefer to eat at home rather than go out. Too many times have we gone somewhere only to look at each other and say "we could make this better at home." I hate chain restaurants....everything is salty, huge and fatty.
My favorite things to cook
Pizza! Breads! Anything Italian...or Japanese for that matter. I love to cook anything that tastes good and doesn't take 5 hours. And I like to find new ways to eat vegetables. Its tough living in Texas were coleslaw is considered a vegetable!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pierogis for Christmas and Easter. Fresh from scratch lasagne on Christmas Eve. Waffles, muffins.........my husband makes the most delicious Mabo Tofu and fried rice. I could eat bowls and bowls of it.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my husband to like tofu. He loves it now. It cracks me up because he used to refer to it as "bad chicken" in stir frys. I think trying to eat vegan every now and then is good too. Its opened my mind to a whole new way to approach food :)
My cooking tragedies
Ive made a few revolting soups. Totally inedible. Ok. Ive made a LOT of revolting soups. My poor husband. I keep trying new recipes but there is only a few that have been edible. Ive messed up pretty much everything there is to think of.
