My New Passion

Now that all my kids are in school, and I have this free time during the day. I really can’t spend all of it knitting!! or can I???  I have discovered I love to do something I thought I would always hate. COOKING. I don’t really have any cook books so I’ve been checking out recipes on the internet. The other day I was in a store and look what I bought.

                       
They were all on sale $4.99, I could have bought alot more, but I stopped myself. I have cooked over the years, but it was a disorganized mess. Alot of times my family preferred to eat out than have me cook. But now I get “Whats for dinner”, nobody wants to order out, and DH has put on 20lbs (I on the other hand have lost 25lbs, all this eating healthy meals rather than take out). For the first time in my life I love cooking. I also bought this in the same store.

But I paid alot less (less than $20.00), I have been making Smoothees everyday.

    If you cook things that cook low and slow, then you can fit in LOTS of knitting and not get those “aren’t you ever going to do anything but knit looks” you simply say, “I am just beat! I have been cooking that stew for HOURS!”
    lol
    I love Rachel Ray! She makes you think “Heck, if she can do this, ANY one can!”

    OMG! $5! Really!!! I have been checking out, renewing and rechecking out the Rachel Ray cookbooks from our library for a while now. What store were you at? I wouldn’t mind that smoothie maker either. My 10 y.o. has discovered that he can make those and that he LOVES them. That would be cool if he had his OWN smoothie maker.

    What fun! Good luck with the new hobby … which sounds like it is already off to a great rolling start. I just made a Pesto Couscous salad this weekend, which was very refreshing. I posted the recipe. My DH loved it, as did the folks at our church.

    Have a great day!
