Seven Days, Seven Meals Challenge7:20 PM
It's a new year, which usually means recycling the same New Year's Resolutions for me. And as always, one of my resolutions is to be a better cook. And like all resolutions, I have good intentions to make them, but often end up ignoring them. Oops - there goes my "Don't Procrastinate" resolution.
Until I saw that Jenny from Dinner: A Love Story had threw the gauntlet. She was challenging herself and her readers to make seven new meals in seven days. And to make it a little easier, she suggested doing this challenge over 14 days. Seven new meals in two weeks? Not only would it challenge me to be a better cook, but get my kids to try new things and be adventurous. Actually, that goes for all of us. Yeah, I'm game.
So how is it going so far?
