Domestication

I spent quite a while last night looking for recipes I want to try. I found a bunch that I am going to give a shot and have already bought a lot of ingredients for them. Right now I am all about domestication.I want a clean and neat house. I want dinner on the table every night. I want my kids to be in a happy environment. I am going to start small and challenge myself to cook dinner every single night for a week. This is major for me because I always give in and order something or run and grab McDonald's. So I figure that if I can make it through an entire week of being in the kitchen then I can train myself to cook every night most weeks.

I made a meal plan for the next week and have done my shopping according to it. I even have 3 desserts on the menu.

NEW recipes for this week are:

Deserts:

Graham Moist Lemon Bars
Pumpkin Chip Muffins
Cherry Enchiladas

Meals:

One Pan Taco dinner
Quick Chicken Parmesan Pasta

I love finding new ways to make our apartment a home. I cooked last night and tonight and it wasn't so bad. I just told myself I needed to save money and give my kids a healthier meal than fries and a burger. Who knows..maybe in a couple of weeks I will be running around in an apron holding a tray of muffins out to anyone who stops by.
