I just sat down to a lunch of leftover Hoppin’ John (from Monday evening) and stared to think about how I stopped my weekly What We Ate Last Week blog post. The reasons I stopped are somewhat unclear to me except I was bearing down on the deadline for my cookbook and I felt like I was always eating (read testing) the same thing. Today, I quite frankly don’t feel too much different. The cookbook is in a different stage of production that’s for sure, but in some ways I feel like I keep cooking and eating the same food/meals. So what?
That’s the point of What We Ate Last Week. An honest glimpse into the evening meal for the GreenApron family – one whose lead cook (me) is a Registered Dietitian, former personal chef, culinary-trained, cookbook author etc., etc. No secrets, no surprises, just a list of our evening meals.
“Are you cooking lots of gourmet food over there”? or “How many times do you eat out”? are questions I am faced with more often than one might realize. So next week will be the first in the resurrected installment of What We Ate Last Week.
And now a quick question:
Does your week start on Sunday or Monday?
