I finally got a Spark Cookbook and the book The Spark. I have already started reading the cookbook and look forward to learning how to make better, healthy food, in more variety. I really want to learn to make my own chicken and veggie stock for soups and stews. The cookbook is very interesting so far. They explain how it came to be and taste tests, etc.
I haven't had time to start reading the Spark book yet, but I will soon. I was reading to my husband in the cookbook already and making lists of things I will need. When I finally do make some stuff, I will let you all know how it turned out.
My daughter uses the spark website to find recipes too. I found that YouTube is a great place to learn a few things too. After my fiasco with the mango, I checked out YouTube to learn how to cut a mango. I had never tried mango before....so when I got one....well....it was like a comedy show...."How not to cut a mango"...LOL. I made the mistake of peeling it first, and, well, if any of you have had mango.....you know what a mistake that was! HAHAHA
It was slipping all over the place....I was trying to get the fruit off from around the pit...and....oh well...I managed to get some of it. HAHAHA Now, I know not to peel it first! I could have my own comedy cooking show. I haven't ever been what I would call great in the kitchen. I prefer one pan meals (ya know?). Just throw everything in a pan and stick it in the oven. But I am determined to use my new cookbook and learn some new dishes.
Well, I hope everyone is having a great day. They finally opened our pool at the apartment....so that is my plan for when hubby gets home from work. We are gonna take a swim before dinner.
Sending love to you all. Joyce
