January 25 - 30

Last week was just an awful week, the kind of week where, when you get home, you just want to sit and stare at a wall.  And so, a lot of things we planned didn't quite get done.  Meals?  eh -- not really.  I made that soup on Tuesday and let it carry me through the week, though I did bring bad grocery store sushi for lunch one day.   Ugh.

And so, this week, we'll try again to make the things we thought we'd make in the last few weeks, but life sort of smacked us upside the head and said, "I don't think so."  So this week, we're saying to life, "Nanner nanner boo boo, I'm making pad thai and you can't stop me."

We're trying again on the Turkey Meatloaf from the Barefoot Contessa cookbook -- I listed the recipe a few weeks back.  It's one of those meals that we just couldn't quite get our act together for...  We'll have it with some roasted carrots and potatoes, salad, and homemade bread.  (I've decided to try making my own bread, so this week I'm trying a recipe from Alton Brown:  Knead Not Sourdough.)

I'm betting it'll be leftovers

Thursday, January 29

We're trying the pad thai with tofu and shrimp that I talked about having last Thursday.  This time I mean it.

Mmmmmm glad to finally take a look at your food blog. I'm afraid though - will I appreciate looking more closely at your culinary ups and downs, or will I get discouraged by how much more motivated in the kitchen you guys are...

Oh, don't be afraid.

Dinner is the thing that might motivate me more than anything... and there are so many other aspects of life I'm willing to let slide.
