Cooking

I haven't been cooking much lately....gasp! I know!!

Things have been so crazy around here that I've just been throwing meals together and trying to make sure they're balanced and healthy. But I'm starting to get the itch. I've got a couple of recipes sitting on my kitchen counter that I've been wanting to try, especially with all of the yummy produce that is so abundant right now! I'm planning to sit down today and get my meal plan worked out, so I can get some meals in the freezer as well as get some fantastic dishes made for Party in the Pantry. Which, by the way, has been having some really tasty things posted lately. Check it out if you haven't in a while!

Today my plan is simple. I have to spend a few hours working on my income statements, since my sales tax payment is due (UGH!), but I also want to whip up a batch of these healthy blueberry muffins I tried last weekend. We haven't had cookies in a while either, so I thought maybe the kids would want to do that as well. I have no plan for dinner yet, but no worries! I'm breaking out my collection of recipes I've torn out of various magazines and photocopied from books...and finding something worthy to try!

What kinds of things would you like to see on Party in the Pantry? I'd love some new inspiration for fall, and we're always looking for a new recipe to try!

I would love some ideas on what to do with over-ripe bananas besides banana nut bread. I make that so much my hubby said he's gonna ralph if he has to eat another BITE. We eat bananas a LOT but still I almost always have 1 or 2 get brown before we get to them...weekly. augh!

how about quick lunch ideas?

Kate said...

what to do w/ all our garden veggies. I've got lots of basil and the only thing I can think of is pasta w/ fresh pesto OR tomato, mozzarella, and basil sandwiches

I agree with everyone that commented so far! I also would love more recipes for things that I can easily throw together when I get home from work and don't feel like cooking :)

I second Julie's suggestion. Tho that tuna recipe you posted on your other blog seems quick and easy. I'll have to try that tonight.

Help....please....for a new reader (thanks to TerriTerri)....
What's party in a pantry?
I'm single but cook full meals all the time so I can freeze them in individual portions to take to work for lunch. I'm always on the lookout for great new recipes....
