Newsflash: I am not flush with the cash.
Newsflash II: Healthy eating is the new black.
My attempt to conquer both newsflash items above is in full swing. How funny that these two seem to go hand in hand? My love of french fries will never be quelled, but I'm doing what I can to become the domestic goddess of my dreams. And this fabo blog has been the anecdote to my laziness. I've already made two recipes, including a soup from scratch -- that I proceeded to eat for lunch every day this week. Someone should be bowled over by this because it is certainly not "the norm" for this lil' girl! A soup from scratch? Never!
"Well, hello, chicken stock. It's very nice to meet you!"
Not only does Gina make things that are simple enough for my brain to digest, but they are fun AND delicious AND low fat.
The thing that's really nice about getting the ball rolling is that it only inspires you to do more. Things like, well, maybe I could steam some broccoli and add that to my dinner! Sadly, this is never anything I wanted to do before. What can I say? I'm the baby of the family. (That's my excuse.)
And while I'm eating my healthy potato (re: cauliflower) soup at lunch it's saving me the ten bucks I would've spent elsewhere! Two birds. I tell ya, I got the smarts from somewhere.
I realize I am late to this game and y'all probably have beaucoup knowledge about this thing you call cooking, so I thought I'd ask...
Where do you go for inspiration? What do you do for cheap, easy meals? (Please note [if you haven't already] that I am as green as green can be and things like Smitten Kitchen, though incredibly lovely, kinda scare me to pieces.)
