Find out my inspiration for the menus, what's happening in my kitchen, and the achievements on the kid-friendly front.

Decisions, decisions...

2014-04-25 | 0 comments
We all have so many decisions to make, big ones, little ones, every single day.
One of my littles is a Virgo, bless her heart, and cannot make a decision to save her life. Oh, how she struggles. Thank God, one of my buddies is a Virgo and has explained the condition with which both she and my little are afflicted, Analysis Paralysis (AP). It can be tough for me, a textbook Leo, to deal with her condition. I’ll confidently make decisions in a snap – always right, of course. Now that I know about her AP, I can be much more sympathetic.
I know that its not just Virgos that deal with bouts of AP. I hear people grumbling about what to make for dinner all the time. Not us! We aren’t opening the fridge at 5:00 worrying about what to make from the mishmosh in the fridge. We already went to the market and it’s all there, every thing we need, just waiting for us to make it happen.
The dinner decisions are made and they are super tasty. Monday’s Sausage & Peppers Pasta is a hearty combo of Italian herbs and sweet peppers. Tuesday it is Apricot Pork Tenderloin with a tangy glaze and when mixed with the fresh dill on the carrots – boom! We mellow out a little on Wednesday with Potato-Carrot Pancake – this is a fun one to do with the kids. And then it’s back on the flavor bus with Thurdays’s Mu Shu Pork.
So now the work week is done and I have a decision to make.  Do I go for a run or go for a cocktail?
Answer: Run to the cocktail. OK, that was an easy one.
