Last month I started planning a monthly menu and sticking to it. I think we only ate out 4 times, which is a miracle! We've had some really good meals, and some not so good ones. I am learning a lot though. This also fits in with my New Year's Resolution to challenge myself. If you're laughing because cooking dinner each night should not be challenging, well, boo to you.
**One of our favorite meals came from the cover of the Real Simple last month. Yes, it was a "spectacular three ingredient recipe." Baby steps.
Its a good thing the kids are young, so they won't remember all this learning. By the time they can remember, I'll always have been Martha Stewart =)
