First, I think of this as a cookbook blog. By that I mean that I am creating an on-line cookbook of treasured recipes that I have collected over the years. These are Tried and True, I have made them often, but I am not necessarily making them currently. I do, however, want to save and share these recipes. This will not be a picture-heavy blog. If I post a dish I have recently cooked, I will try to post a picture. Otherwise there probably won't be one.
There is just my husband and me, and I actually cook dinner only three times a week due to my work schedule. I always make roasts, meat loaf, casseroles, etc, so there will be leftovers for my husband to eat on the nights I work. I do make lunch just about everyday, but mostly make soup.
I did decide that I wanted some plan of order for my posts and this is the schedule I plan to follow:
Monday: Do It Yourself Groceries--I will share my extensive collection of homemade mixes, spice blends, convenience food and other items that can be made at home instead of purchased at the store.
Tuesday: Cooking with the Journal--I will share favorite recipes from my large collection of Farm Journal Cookbooks..
Wednesday: Ingredient Spotlight for Eat at Home. I am participating in Eat at Home's Ingredient Spotlight series. I will post a recipe using the ingredient that Tiffany is spotlighting and link up. Now that I have a blog, I need to quit hogging her comment space.
Thursday: Skipping through Blogland. I will highlight a blog that I have stopped at and think others should know about. I will particularly be looking for newer, smaller blogs like mine. Since I also sew and quilt, the blogs may not necessarily be food blogs.
Friday: Friday Finds and Frugal Tips. Links to a few other recipes I have found in blogland and a tip or two that I have collected over the years. Most of the tips can save money if used.
Saturday: Wild card day. My recipe collection is huge so whatever is on my mind
Sunday: Day Off or Not?
