I have been paralyzed in the kitchen for quite awhile. With health issues that make it hard to cook, several allergies for different family members and anorexic background, cooking has not been easy to approach. I can menu plan until I'm blue in the face. I can shop well and buy healthy food for the four of us. I get sick to my stomach when I think of how many foods have gone in the trash because I couldn't follow through on my good intentions. That is changing with this challenge.

Earlier this week, I found a new Minestrone soup that my daughter liked. I also shifted a recipe and made a Cornish game hen. We had a potluck for my daughter's swim team on Friday night. I baked a bean and ground beef dish that virtually disappeared. It's a family recipe, but the first time I had baked it. Usually, if I was able to cook it, it was just a casserole dish heated on the stovetop. This time, it was baked.

Today was the second time I baked bread in the bread maker, but I also made a new fish recipe, cooked brown rice and veggies to go with it, roasted some chickpeas for a snack this week and made some lime jello (with orange juice!) for my son. Not bad for just one week!

I had plans to make meatballs for the freezer this weekend. I also want to make some of our turkey apple meatloaf. Right now, though, our fridge is full, so we get to have a few "leftover" days. :) That's a good feeling.

Thanks for reading!
