I'm generally not a New Years resolution type of person, but the past couple of years I've tried to set some goals for myself. This year I have a couple of food related goals.
The first one is to cook out of all of my cookbooks. I have a cookbook obsession, and where I love flipping through them, I'm not great at actually making meals with them. The second one is to do a little bit better job of meal planning now that I'm back at work, and have pretty much figured out the daycare drop off, go to work, daycare pick up, come home and wash and prep a million bottles routine (boy am I regretting Dr. Browns...SO MANY PARTS!). My main goal is to cook 2-3 dinners a week, that will last us most of the week, and make some lunches. My approach is to make a big pot of something on Sunday; Stew, Soup, Short Ribs, Ragu, etc., a slow cooker meal and one quick and easy weeknight dinner. Last weeks meal plan is below. I also made chicken salad for sandwiches during the week, lets just say when the Seahawks aren't on, I have a much more productive weekend.
Sunday - Creamy Hungarian Mushroom Soup from my Moosewood Restaurant Favorites Cookbook
Monday - Leftover Soup
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Tacos
Wednesday - Leftover Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken, this time in Taco/Burrito Bowl form
Thursday - My Grandpa sent us an Omaha Steak Package for Christmas so we tapped into that
Friday - Dinner out on the town!
I don't have a goal to blog more, if it happens it happens and if it doesn't, it doesn't. I've always told myself that I would just blog how ever frequent or infrequent I want to...it's for fun. Maybe I'll try to keep you up to date on my meal planning and share recipes I'm trying.
So this soup, it starts with creamy so it has to be good.
