Greetings new leaf!

Allow me to turn you over.

My tornado is turning two next month and, well, please to see the title of my post.

Ive got one word for you: COOKING.

Im so bad about it. I mean, I do "prepare" her food (if you read my personal blog youre already painfully aware that a lot of this involves my boyfriend Mister Micro Wave & fresh ingredients) but I could be better about cooking for myself and my husband.

Me? Im old school. Id just as soon eat tuna out of the can instead of driving to whole foods, buying a fresh tuna steak, soaking it in a marinade and firing up the grill (all with aforementioned toddler in tow).

Id rather scramble egg whites and grab veggies from the fridge when I pass by than motivate to chopchopchop and scramble & season (all with aforementioned toddler in tow).

my hubby? the most amazing man and AMAZINGLY plain eater as well (cue wedding bells! I wasnt letting that one go).

AND amazingly LATE worker. So, for now, we dont do dinners the three of us.

yada yada yada.

Greetings new leaf! Allow me to turn you over.

I am going to check out this site. I actually enjoy to cook, but don't do it anymore. I am nervous with Savannah by the stove and oven and just envision her getting splashed, burned, or injured in some way with pots and pans.

I actually LOVE whole foods pre-prepared foods. I love everything at Whole Foods, but the prices.

We do have family dinners, even though Rich works very late too, but I have the night owl who is getting up from her nap (if we have one) about an hour before dinner and she is ready to go, go, go.

Wow! That is a great site! I cook ALOT--it is one of my favorite stress relievers--and it saves alot of money. I don't understand how people can afford to eat out every night. And given the "variety" of restaurants in this franchised nation of ours, why would anyone even want to?

Great site! Can't wait to try out some of the recipes. I need to turn that same leaf over myself.
