The other was to cook more. Inspired by the movie Julie and Julia, I decided that I wanted to start utilizing my cookbooks and making at least one meal from scratch each week.
We've decided to combine both, and once a week K and I will be getting together, cooking a meal, and eating, chatting, bonding.
Last Wednesday we had our first cooking night.
Love the slippers, don't you?
I set an ambitious menu for our first foray into cookbook cooking. A salad of mixed greens with fresh mozzarella cheese and homemade sundried tomato dressing;
and stir fried beef with mushrooms and green beans in a ginger sauce
When all was said and done, we had a delicious dinner, which Kayla called a 5 Star meal, and an amazing time.
We haven't picked a menu for this week yet...but we've set a date. This is going to be such a fun project!
