Now, I spend my entire day chasing an extremely active toddler around the house. Half of the day is spent pulling him off of every piece of furniture while he tries to practice for his part time job as a stunt man. The other half is spent trying to keep stuff out of his mouth. I have pulled everything that you can possibly imagine out of his mouth, everything from the classic phone charger all the way to the dead bug he found in the corner (yeah, not one of the highlights of my life, and a definite Mommy FAIL). By 4pm, I am exhausted and staring at a messy house. All I want to do is sit down on the couch and relax. I am in no mood to cook. I will admit I still enjoy that glass of wine though. :)
London goes to bed each night at 6:30 or 7:00 and most nights Mike doesn't get home until about that same time. London is a CRAZY man in the kitchen, so it is really hard for me to cook while he is awake. So when ever Mike gets home he helps me with London's night time routine while I try to get some cooking prep done. Then we put the lil man down and I go right back to the kitchen to cook for another 20-45 mins. I HATE it. So here is what I am looking for. I need some quick HEALTHY flavorful meals. Mike doesn't exactly like to eat healthy, but I am really trying to lose weight. It also doesn't help that I am a picky eater.
Things I hate:
All fish except Tilapia (but I LOVE crab and shrimp)
Red Sauce (like pizza or spaghetti)
I'm not a HUGE pasta fan but occasionally it's ok.
Chicken or Steak on the bone (however boneless is yummy)
So here is your mission, should you choose to accept it. GIVE ME YOUR RECIPES!!! I will try all of them and the one that Mike and I BOTH like will win.What will you when you ask? Good Question! You will win one of my favorite kitchen gadgets. These SleekStor collapsible silicone measuring cups and spoons. I love them, and hopefully you will too!!
You can leave a comment with the recipe or email it to me at
AlyIFOABlog (at) gmail (dot) com
Deadline to send me your recipe is next Thursday (4/22/10).
I am going to start cooking these as they come in so hopefully I will have a winner in a few weeks.
Crockpot recipes are also welcome.
