Five months

Over the past five months, I have been posting faithfully every Monday (except for last week!).  This has been in conjunction with other bloggers to try and do something different this year. 

With Eat. Live. Be. we set goals for ourselves.  Some people wanted to lose weight.  Others wanted to work out more.  Others wanted to give up certain foods/drinks.  What did I want to do?  Well, I wanted to cook a real meal at least twice a month.  How did I do?   I'd say I succeeded.  I didn't necessarily pull out all the stops, but I made meals other than simply roasted veggies thrown into some eggs.  Could I do better?  Sure!  What do I need to change for the upcoming month?  Well, maybe I should try and have friends over more?  I don't do it that often.  Maybe make some little cold salads (not my typical green salad) for lunches?  We'll see!  Still going to try and cook twice a month.  I've still got lots of recipes to try!

One yummy meal I made a couple of months ago was this simple sauteed flounder topped with sauteed mushrooms and onions. 

Along side I had cous cous (yes, from the box!) with roasted broccoli.  Simple but definitely required cooking!  After I ate the fish, I used the leftover broccoli, mushrooms, and onions to make a veggie couscous for lunches that week. 

Great two for one cooking session!
