Cooking Real Simple

I’ve been completely uninspired about cooking and meal-planning lately, so decided to copycat the Julie & Julia idea and cook straight through an entire cookbook. I’m doing this one:


I’m not sure where I got it; it’s been on my shelf for years. If you gave it to me, please remind me so I can feel glad about that. It has a nice variety of meals, a colorful picture of each one, and simple but interesting ingredients. And Kerry, who knows more about food and cooking than I do, scanned through it and approved my plan, which felt like a good strong hand pulling me out of a rut. It’ll probably be good for all of us to try a few new flavors. And it’ll be like solving a mystery every night: What happens when you put THIS stuff together?

We’ll find out…

    I like cooking shows too, Anna!

    And, Jeanne, I’ll try to post the good and the bad…
