I have created a new challenge for myself to motivate me. I am a stay at home mom that has been gaining weight again. I have been serious funk. Getting bored. Getting bored with food. I have a reasonable stockpile of food too. My neighbor says that
I have plenty of food to last for a while. I also have a garden to prepare and harvest. Therefore, I need to use up some old goodies from the pantry and freezers.
Here is my challenge for myself. Others may join me if they want. I have plenty of energy and time to do this, if I plan well. We will not eat anything that was not prepared at home. This includes packing lunches for the kids and hubby. There will be no
sandwiches through the drive-thru or junk from the gas station on the hubby's way to work. This also means no frozen pizzas when I am tired, or frozen lasagna thrown into the oven because I am too busy. The only exception will be previously prepared food from
me. Meaning, I made an extra lasagna and froze it myself.
I will also aim to try a new recipe everyday. Something that I have never made or a new way to make it. I want to do that to help with the boredom of my recipes that I have now. This is gonna be fun. I get to cook new foods, garden new plants outside
and probably save money. Bring it on. The menu planning could get a little tedious.
I am starting tomorrow with ingredients that I have on hand.
It is tomorrow's Side Dish Recipe of the Day.
Tomorrow's Herb and Spices Recipe of the Day as a cookie jar filler.
There may be more but this is a good start.
