Fri Blog Prompt 1/4 - Is there a new food you want to try this year? Or a new recipe you want to make?
Since I suffer from the nagging question, "What's for dinner?" every day I have started to accumulate a ton of recipes that I want to try. New Years Eve I actually sorted them by category. I get a lot of recipes from All Recipes and Food Network. Recently I joined Menus for Moms. They send a weekly menu that helps most days. Of course, my family is very picky and I can't make everything from that sight but it does help for days when I just don't know what to make.
Recently a friend of mine sent me some new websites for recipes but I haven't yet been able to check them out. I will share them with you.
Oh by the way the recipe I made yesterday in my crock pot (see yesterdays post for recipe) was a keeper. It made a very good gravy even without the mushrooms. It tasted really good on the egg noodles. I will make it again using fresher meat next time.

Have you ever had a gift certificate that you just could not use because you can't get to the mall with 3 toddlers? It is an impossible task. I had gotten a gift certificate for Macy's from my in-laws for my birthday which was almost a year ago (February 2007). I finally sat down and did on line shopping at Macy's website. I got this black shirt, a pair of jeans and a new pair of sneakers. When the box arrived my husband was surprised that I shopped for clothing on line. He said, "Aren't you taking a chance by ordering clothes on line?" I said, "I know." What he meant was how did I know the correct size? Well, I am back to my original weight before pregnancy. However, my body is not back to prepregnancy size. I seem to have gained in my hips, my stomach and in my rear! So I went from a size 5 prepregnancy to a size 9 today. Luckily everything I ordered did fit. I was very lucky that I didn't have to return anything.
