Happy New Year's and Month of Meals

In the spirit of ringing in the new year my resolutions include posting and sharing a years worth of month of meals (MoMe), and catching up on old trip and travel pictures.

MoMe will feature four weeks and five days of evening meals, including prep work to bring your week of meals to the table, and a featured grocery list of things to purchase. This assumes the most basics of basics, and that is having a well-stocked pantry to build your meals. Five meals is a good starting point. Something always comes up. With a bit of pre-planning leftovers from five planned meals is a great starting point. I cook daily. After two years of cooking breakfasts, lunches, and dinners daily, I have found that five meals stretches to cover leftovers without wasting raw ingredients.

I read a lot of food blogs (cookbooks, cooking magazines, and watch cooking TV shows). Some I check daily, others I find by searching for meals. MoMe will feature links to recipes. If you’ve got a good idea, please share it. If you use this, and it helps you become more efficient putting together meals and becoming a better cook, please leave a comment. I love feedback.
