Getting Ready for the Blogging Week Ahead

blognotes

It so peaceful sitting in my kitchen and thinking/taking notes about what I’m going to make for the coming week for my blog.  I used to sit down and try to make a menu for the week ahead and then life got busier and busier so I began to just wing it while I was at the market.  This actually meant tossing a lot of uneaten food.  Food I bought that I thought we would be eating and then never got around to. Having started the Sunshine and Savory blog a couple months ago has put me back on track to really think about what I want to make each week … the recipes I want to come up with that I feel will be good enough to blog about.  I think I have a pretty good week of menus and my grocery list is mostly together.  Time for me to head on out the door to make the rounds at the markets I frequent.  Today, I’m heading to Sprouts, Trader Joe’s and Vons.  I’ll be gone for a while …. perhaps I should grab an iced tea from Starbucks, head out with the convertible top down and enjoy an afternoon of grocery shopping.  Stay tuned for tonight’s menu item ….

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
