Paused, at the moment; we had a death in the family two weeks ago and have been inundated with casseroles ever since!

How goes the cooking exploration?

I'll eat eggs and dairy, but no bird or fish.

Hmm... when you say vegitarian - are you talking ovo-lacto; pescadorian, etc?....



One of my favourite veg dishes is (Indian): recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
recipe=1302301


You could add pieces of chicken or shrimp to it for the omnivores.

This one is quite like a very cheesy quiche (French) - so if you're not having cheese - it will be a problem.
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
recipe=385506


If you eat fish; this might be a good one. The pastry is flavourful, but it is NOT light and flakey.

WOW!!! You have put my brain in gear! I think I would start with each of the food groups, list the foods everyone can/will eat and make up a menu for one evening's meals. Then go to the next day and maybe get 7 days menus that you can shuffle up for the next week. Don't get overwhelmed, just tackle one day at a time.

Hi! New to the board - my name is Sarah, and I have a bit of a... well, pickle.

I don't know how to cook. My mother taught me how to cook pasta and frozen Stuff-From-A-Box. Well, that's all well and good, but we need variety. Stuff-From-A-Box gets expensive and we've got a thinnish grocery budget. I can follow recipes pretty well, but I'm not sure where to begin.

Here's what I've got. Three omnivorous adults, one vegetarian breastfeeding mother (that'd be me), and one disabled 6-year-old kidling who isn't picky but needs food mashable and soft because he can't chew. The nursling will be starting solids in the next month or so and will be getting table foods. Breakfasts and snacks are easy enough to manage and most lunches are already handled, but I need to know what to do with dinners. NO idea where to start putting menus together that the omnivores will eat and that will provide enough protein/nutrients for myself and the baby.

I'm thinking about branching out into food themes - picking a different culture every week and doing it that way. Any input would be immensely helpful.
