Home Cooking for the Soul

I love the satisfaction that come from preparing a fresh meal.

I don't know when that became something important in my life.  But fresh ingredients, interesting recipes, eclectic fare...I honestly enjoy making a great meal even more than going out and ordering a great meal.  Maybe because it's something that's come on as a bit of a surprise in my life.  I never wanted to learn how to cook.  I just decided to do it one day.

And it certainly makes me feel better than stopping for some quick fast food or having a pizza delivered.  Not that there isn't a time and a place for those things too.

But a home-cooked meal on a weeknight while I enjoy the Yankee game with my woman? Yeah...I'll take that.

Last night was a tasty Thai beef salad with a delicious brown rice side dish.

For later today, I'm thinking about Chicken Francaise over pasta with a homemade Greek salad.  Or something like that.  Maybe not the healthiest meal in the world, but ya gotta get yer butter on every once in a while.  Right?

Anything cooked at home with fresh ingredients is still better than what you'd get in a pre-packaged meal or at most restaurants. Healthy, schmealthy.
Butter is delicious!
Also - why no recipes, Earl?

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - will do.

Sybil - Oh, I've posted my Laab recipe before (that's the Thai beef salad). I'll look for it and email it to you.

Becky - Gia is a wonderful woman who prefers to be on the eating side of a meal rather than the prep side. :)
