Half the battle of home-cooking is the question of WHAT? Take turns choosing your weekly menus and the whole family gets engaged. WHEN in the world will you have time to cook given a busy schedule filled with late meetings and kids' activities? Choose some simple recipes and prep a little in advance, then you can put your meals together 'a-la-minute.' If you've drawn a blank, start the week with a Sunday kitchen session, whipping up a batch of 'ground beef starter' that can translate into countless meals throughout the week.
I had a fun time in the kitchen recently with our Secretary of Health, Karen Bowling, making taco salads, a healthy twist to the traditional Taco Salad Tuesday. Jump into the kitchen with us!
