I've got to tell you guys that I am TIRED. Really. Really. Really. T-I-R-E-D. And I should probably take this opportunity to nap since Kid is at school and I actually managed to get Baby down.
But I've got so much stuff to do...
I wanted to give you all a real post... (well I wanted to post a video of me whining but I'm really working on the 60/40 writing to video ratio)... but in the place of a real post I am going to toss out some post ideas that you can mull over in my brief absence.
I am really interested in creating recipes that require less than 10 minutes of prep. If you are like me you've watched more than your fair share of 30 minute meal type shows and just thought... "ridiculous... that is never going to happen". I want all you time-strapped-people out there to peruse my recipe section in my sidebar. Outside of the stew I don't think there is anything over there with a prep time over 10 minutes.
I am really excited and committed to trying to come up with SUPER quick, easy, and healthy meals that anyone can do (even with two kids attacking you). I think getting dinner on the table, and a dinner everyone in your family will eat, is doable. Is it doable seven days a week? Not if you don't want to lose your freaking mind. But it is doable 5 days. I take my two days off in the work week (genius). Wednesday because by then I am feeling it... and Friday because by then I am dead. It is a lot like working out and cleaning and all that. It is chosing to make it a priority and making it happen.
I completely respect if this isn't your thing (cleaning is not mine) but I'm reaching out to all of you who are interested in this. For those of you who are looking for ways to make dinner work... what are your obstacles? The other thing I would love to know from EVERYONE is what things do you find yourself making frequently? What is your tomato & meatball soup... you know that meal you can throw together without even thinking? Your input will greatly shape the direction I take my cooking segments and recipes... so please comment away!
