Out with the old

I don't know about you, but I get tired of eating the same old thing over and over again.  It is not that I am not a good cook, I just stink at deciding what to make.  Then there are those picky children.  So I am on a mission to cook something new each week.  The week before last I had the kids each pick something out of my cooking light magazine and I made it.  They were basically different varieties of things we have eaten before, but still different.  Tonight I made Spinach, Pasta and Chick Pea soup.  It was really good.  I tweaked it a bit by adding the extra bacon, from the BLTs we were also having.  That may have thrown off the nutritional value, but hey it tasted great and the kids ate.  Even the chick peas.

I am also going to make a fennel and spinach side dish later this week.  I have never made anything with fennel but here's to trying something new.

Any other suggestions?  I am going to try to make pumpkin soup soon.

EB and B passed their practical test for hunter's safety tonight tomorrow is graduation and a video on field dressing a deer.   Boy are they excited about the movie.  I am sure they will serve popcorn and M & Ms.

I'm so weary of cooking the same old here, too. Their taste buds are SO limited in this house!
