What to Cook!

I always run out of idea what to make for dinner and the question :” What do you want for dinner?” is at least asked twice a week in my household. It should not be hard to prepare dinner because there are only 2 of us but I am a very boring person in meal choice. I tend to buy mushroom, chicken, green pepper and lettuce all the time. LOL!

We try to cut down carbohydrate intake therefore I seldom cook rice nowadays. Most of the time I just “quick bake” microwave the two small size potatoes to go with some protein. Chicken is what we eat very often. John can be very picky eventhough he denies this. Allrecipes.com is the recipe site that I visit most of the time to get some ideas what good meals to make. I find that this site is very useful for a housewife like me that has very little experience with a kitchen. Do you all have hard time preparing meals for family? Please share with me some wonderful recipes site or even your grocery shopping tips!

There is a Kroger located within 3 miles of my place and I visit there more than twice a week to do grocery shopping. I made my way there this afternoon and bought some scallop to make some seared scallop pasta for dinner tonight. I omitted the heavy cream and made a lighter creamy sauce using whole milk and parmesan cheese BUT sadly that the sauce dint turn out quite right. It was too salty and watery. Anyway, that was what we had for dinner and that definitely is the worst meal I ever mad! 😀

  1. I often have a hard time figuring out what to make for dinner. I like allrecipes.com and I recently found a new site called http://www.homemadesimple.com/

    I found a really great recipe for Parmesan Crusted Chicken and Artichoke Linguine. It was nice and light for a hot summer day.
