Hey Bloggie Buddies, I have a question for you!
(For a blog that is not technically a Food Blog, I talk about food an awful lot here. But that's okay, I talk about food a lot in real life, and I don't have a baby yet, so here we are ;) One day there will be a baby and I'll only talk about her/him and we'll all reminisce about how I used to cook...)
Some background--This past week I've been participating in my own little Iron Chef challenge--We were close to going over on our monthly food budget, so I set myself a goal to make all the meals for the week out of things we already had in the fridge, pantry, or freezer, and NOT do my weekly store run. And, today, Mission Accomplished! Tonight's meal will mark a whole additional week on no extra food. I'm outta milk, outta eggs, and thank the dear sweet Lord, I will go to the store tomorrow on a brand spanking new food budget. The Challenge was fun, but I am BEYOND over it, I can't wait to get back to cooking any damn thing I want. So, my question for you, kids, is this:
You've just gotten your kitchen back--I don't know where you were, on a trip, jail, whatever--but it's been a while, and now you're back and can cook ANY thing you want--what is THE meal you're most excited to make? I know I can't wait to try real live Texas Chicken Fried Steak, and I've got a soup recipe (Asparagus, Potato, and Herb) that was described as "Spring time in a bowl", so those are going on this week's menu, but maybe I want to make your favorite meal too! And then you can come over and eat with us. Or you can come for the soup. Whatever.
