My fiancÚ and I bought our first house in March and this whole "making homemade meals" is proving to be just as difficult as I thought it would be. I have this mindset that meals should be this extravagant display with multiple sides and extra delicious foods. I didn't expect to only have few recipes that we both actually like that don't take forever. I get home at 5:30 and my fiancÚ gets home at 5:50 and I like to have dinner started by the time he gets home because we are both hungry. I feel like we get burned out on the same meals over and over but when I try new things they never turn out good.
Last night I was so excited to make chicken wrapped with a piece of bacon and fat free cheddar. It just didn't taste too great. My main problem is spices, I think. I don't know how to combine spices or how to even spice/flavor my food right.
On a more positive note: I love how I can plan meals but just end up eating cereal or something super simple. Not only does it save time, but it saves my planned meal ingredients for another day with saves money at the grocery store. yay!
