We've been earnestly trying to plan meals in order to save money.
If I'm able to plan what we have for dinner, I can substantially cut our grocery bill and we don't end up eating out because we're too tired to make dinner. Plus, with a toddler, I'm starting to think it's easier to eat at home!
But I've run into a problem. I'm getting bored with our normal selection of meals. I have a list of dinner ideas that I draw from. Occasionally, I'll consult one of our cookbooks to get some new ideas – tried two this week. Sometimes they get added to the list, sometimes they don't.
The question is: What do you eat for dinner?
Is anyone interested in doing a Recipe Blog Hop?
Here's how it will work:
Once a week, one of you will feature a recipe on your blog, with photos and directions on how to cook it. I'll keep a list of all the participants here (which you can duplicate on your blog). Then, we can get a plethora of recipes to try out ourselves. (Don't you love the word plethora. It got way overused in high school as one of those SAT words you had to know. And, then, I don't even remember it being on the SAT!).
The rules (subject to change as people ask questions!):
- The recipe must be a main meal (lunch or dinner). It doesn't have to include the sides, or you can feature a couple recipes to make a full meal.
- The recipe must be family friendly (i.e.: no obscure ingredients that you can't find at a local grocery store). I'd say it has to be kid friendly, but kids are all picky eaters!
If you don't have a blog, you can still participate. You can email me the recipe with photos and I'll post it here during your week. We'll determine how many weeks the Recipe Blog Hop will be depending on how many people participate; the more people the more weeks!
So, are you interested?
If so, leave a comment. You don't have to include the recipe or week, yet.
