Recipe hopper

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Well, because I did NOT want cod for dinner last night (see yesterday's blog), I decided to find something fun for dinner.

Now, first of all you must understand that I am NOT the cook in the family. If it were up to me, we'd be eating a lot of breakfasts (I CAN prepare eggs), salads, and perhaps an occasional PBJ, meatloaf or pot of chili.

Since it was Monday and a bit cooler than usual with a chance of a rain storm, I thought about making a nice hearty soup or stew.

So I clicked on the SparkRecipe link and began searching for a lentil soup. How I ended up with a muffin corndog recipe I'll never know.

They were fun, and quite tasty. I actually had enough calories left for dinner so I could have had two. . . . . but as soon as the first one hit bottom, I knew that would be enough for me. Guess I'm more used to freggies than corndogs . . . even 'healthy' ones.

Still felt a bit queasy this morning but after downing about half a gallon of water and some herb tea, I started feeling much better.

Tonight hubby can do the cooking.

    I enjoy trying recipes from the list at SP.

A muffin corndog recipe doesn't sound so great to this gal; however, I know enough to know that how a recipe sounds doesn't always measure up to how the finished product tastes. With that thought in mind, I will be checking out the recipe.

emoticon for sharing about it.

God bless!

    I've tried a ton of recipes from Sparkpeople - some are duds but most are great! Have to watch the nutrition info carefully though . . . some recipes are not calculated correctly. For these I do the "create a makeover" and that way I can put in the exact ingredients & amounts that I used and how many servings it made.

    Awesome! I'm not the cook in the house either and I haven't gotten up the courage to try yet either!

    Sounds like you find recipes the way I do. I start looking under one topic, see another main ingredient, and wind up along strange trails - sometimes very yummy ones.

    We share the cooking duties and are pretty equal, but I will admit he does the laundry better! Hope you have a good dinner tonight!

    I have a hubby that like to cook as well, especially grilling. I love to cook as well occasionally trying new recipes. That can be fun or a disaster.

    Why not? You tried and you can let him get something delicious ready while you do something else. Have a great night! HUGS!
