I'm linking up today with Karissa at A Fresh Start on a Budget for her "blog every day in April" challenge. Today's prompt was a talent you wish you had but don't.
I can cook. I physically know how to boil noodles and fry an egg and bake chicken breasts. I can follow a recipe. I have a very small arsenal of things I can make for dinner that aren't just popping something in the microwave. But I struggle when it comes to trying new recipes or just creating something on my own. I say that I hate to cook, but I think it's just that I feel like I don't have enough time or energy to really get creative in the kitchen.
Some people (like my sister) have a talent for making a great dinner out of whatever food they have on hand. I wish I could do that. I wish I could just whip up an amazing meal from the ingredients in my kitchen -- but I don't think strawberries, mayo, and tomato sauce go together...
I get sick of having the same stuff over and over again -- frozen lasagna, tacos, chicken and rice -- and I'm sure Jerry gets sick of having to cook them........... I feel like it should be easier to put a delicious (or at least edible) meal together, but for me it's hard.
Should any of my readers (hahaha) have a great recipe to share -- it has to be easy, quick prep & cook time, and with only a few ingredients -- please do!!
