new recipes

Okay, so we're tired of the same-old same-old at home. For years now I've been making the same stuff for dinner every month. It's old. And boring. And I think that's why I got so tired of cooking. But now I'm challenging myself to try one new recipe a week. So far it's going well. The first thing I made was chicken fettucini with squash and zucchini. It tasted fabulous! I also added Kara's red potatoes as a side and dinner was great! So tonight I'm endevouring to try another new recipe. Well, three new recipes actually. The whole meal will be something I've never tried to make. Yay! Tonight's menu is Honey Ginger Roasted Chicken, Honey Glazed Carrots, and homemade White Dinner Rolls. Fun! The prep was SUPER duper easy on these and this bread recipe only takes about an hour to rise. Very easy! So I'm praying it all tastes fantastic :) I'll post pics and the recipes once it's all cooked and sampled.
As an aside... tomorrow I'm making my homemade Strawberry Jam. It's my own recipe and it's amazing! If you'd like some let me know. If you live out of town, just pay shipping and I'll send you a jar. :)
