Dinner #1

Monday, Jan. 10-Well, only two more meals to make, and we will be set for dinners for the month! It's only taken me 4 days so far! The cooking is really supposed to be done all in one day, but that's now how I roll. :)

Tonight's dinner is Playoff Burgers. We are hoping to grill them outside...but that will be up to the grillmaster. It is currently 37 degrees and raining in beautiful Savannah, GA. So I will let him decide if it will be outside grill, or broiled in the oven. (Listen, you have to be nice to the help!)

A couple of the recipes I have made have some ingredients that some of my clients (i.e. the hubby and kids) do not particularly like. But I have had an epiphany of sorts over the last two days. I have decided that we were not created to eat only the things we like. God gave us food to nourish us, to give us energy for serving Him. Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying that I think cooking yummy dishes and eating things we like are wrong. I have just come to the conclusion that I, most of all, seem to think that food is there to please me, and only to please me.

Tuesday, Jan. 11-Ok, I started this post yesterday...signs of my crazy life that I am just now getting to finish it. We did have our playoff burgers last night, and my hubby braved the nasty weather to grill them! There were fabulous, and with some raw veggies and dip, we pretended it was summer!

Tonight's dish is Mexican Chicken Lasagna. Not sure how the reviews will be, as I don't have big mexican fans. But they do like tacos, and this seems a lot like tacos. I left out the green chiles and black beans, so we may have a fighting chance. I'm still in my drill sargeant mode..."I don't care if you like it, it's what's for dinner!"

I finished all the meals for the month, so I am quite excited about that. Now on to simplifying the rest of my life. (Stop laughing! All things are possible!)

Thankful for my daily bread,
Danielle <><
