This is an atypical post for me, but let’s go with it anyway!
When we got married about 1 1/2 years ago, my sister threw me this super cute shower at my church. She had bags of seeds put into pots with “Watch our love grow” written on each one, she had my favorite color decorated around the entire space, she hand tied little craft rope around each and every silverware set. She busted her butt. She also tried really hard to get a ton of recipes collected for me, as a new wife. I’m not certain if she just thought it was a cute idea or thought that I would end up being the chef in our house (I totally don’t cook enough, Prince Charming does it all.)
So I wound up with several helpful recipes, but some were instructions on how to make scrambled eggs.. because they get me, they knew I couldn’t cook, while some were inappropriate and silly recipes for love. We keep those separate from the recipe box we have in the kitchen, fully accessible by children.
We are in a food-funk in our house. I am not creative, I like boring food and I’m really skeptical of new things… but I’m really trying to be helpful to my husband and give him ideas. So when I can’t come up on my own, I’m calling on YOU. My faithful 15 subscribers!
What’s your favorite family dish? We are a family of 4 (but sometimes as many as 8 kids are in our house when the significant others and older kids are there). We love chicken tacos, eat spaghetti too often, do homemade pizzas, chicken nuggets, ginger chicken, Chinese, we LOVE breakfast for dinner, my husband is a lover of soup but I won’t go near it… We are stuck.
Things you should know:
I am lactose intolerant and I hate spicy things.. or overly flavorful things. I like everything plain or with the option of plain (if you can add toppings on later, that’s fine!)
My husband loves spicy things, loves new ideas, loves new things.
12 hates ground beef/pasta things
8 thinks he hates chicken and thinks he’s a vegetarian but last night he ate grilled chicken, he eats nuggets, venison, beef, ham, turkey, steak, hot dogs.. the list goes on.
So here I am, on my knees in the homemade apron a sweet friend gifted me on our wedding reception day, begging you to help me spruce our kitchen up and save the kids from flipping over the table if we serve noodles one more time.
What are your favorites? Easy Crock-Pot recipes are totally welcomed (because I hate cooking!). How often would you like to see a recipe roundup? Thinking I might make this a monthly tradition!
