I’m really, really good at saving recipes. I copy and paste items from menus that look interesting. I save links from websites. I bookmark and make lists of recipes in cookbooks. I feel like I am overflowing with ideas of what to cook.
I’m not so good at sticking to a plan of what to cook when. After a week of not being home at dinner time, or eating something simple and quick to get to various school functions, I’m ready to spend some quality time with my knives and pans. I put the responsibility on a dear friend to choose if I should cook from a link, a restaurant menu, or a cookbook, and she picked book. Which works out great, because almost all my library cookbook holds came in at the same time and I have a huge stack to get through.
