I know that when I got the new look that I said I would stick to a schedule so you knew what to expect when you came to LILL and I also said that nothing was set in stone and life happens well today is one of those days! Schedule schmedule!
You see, I love to cook but if your anything like me it’s hard to figure out what to cook every single night of the week. You can ask people a million times for suggestions and you will always get the same answer, “I don’t know.” You could suggest a million things and still nobody has anything to say until after you’ve cooked and nobody wants what you made.
I also seem to get into a rut of making things that are easy, inexpensive and that we have at least once a week. My son loves pork chops in a bag, so I make those with broccoli and cheese rice with a vegetable. It’s easy enough and doesn’t take a lot of time so it’s something we usually have a few times a month.
So I guess what I am saying to you is that my recipe box is getting really old, boring and frankly unappetizing to not only me but my family. Please don’t get me wrong, I have some awesome recipes in my box that are from my grandmothers, great aunts and cousins but it’s stuff that we either often have or it takes to much effort to make. I know a lot of you would probably love to have a recipe for my abuela’s chicken mole and your family would beg for it a few times a month but you probably don’t have it so your stuck too.
It got me thinking, why not do a recipe exchange? Would anyone like to post different recipes that are popular in your house? It would be a great way to try new things and switch up the same ole’, same ole’.
Let me know what you think, and I will start sharing with you;)
