Cooking up a Storm

Extensive family time at home has led to the cooking of nearly all our meals.

Sure, we still throw an occasional frozen pizza in the oven or do occasional take-out. But the desire to use the food we have (to do less grocery shopping), plus the urge and space to spend more time in the kitchen, has given us an opportunity to do more meal prep.

We started with going back to the meals we’ve had before that everyone has liked — hamburgers, and certain salads, soups, casseroles and the like. Since then, we’ve tried new recipes (this chipotle salad dressing is now a favorite) and even experimented with some drink recipes too.

And in addition to enjoying eating what we make, we’re eating healthier and saving money too. When I’m not rushed, I enjoy cooking a lot.
