Here are my children enjoying their surprise snack.
This morning I woke up earlier than the kids which is so rare. I decided to take out the tin again and this time I did a breakfast. I put cantaloupe an cheese and crackers. They also had cereal and orange juice. They were surprised to see the muffin tin again and requested that I do it again. Here's a photo of their breakfast.

Now, these three remain:
Faith, Hope and Love
But the greatest of these is LOVE.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And so my journey will begin tomorrow with Day 1.
This is my photo of the day for project 365. It's a photo of me and my husband taken back in June 1995.

I am so like Laura. Not only do we have the same name but I too get bored of cooking the same things over and over so I do try new recipes often.
My Top 10 List for Selecting New Recipes1. I pass on all fish recipes since my husband doesn't like the smell of it. I do like shell fish but I tend to eat them at restaurants.
2. I pass on all pork recipes. I gave up pork when I converted 5 years ago.
3. I basically look for chicken, ground beef or ground chicken, regular beef, and sausage. Nope not pork sausage but chicken sausage. I also use turkey bacon in place of regular bacon.
4. I have been looking for crockpot meals lately because of all the activities I do sometimes I just need a quick meal to be waiting for me when we get home.
5. I don't like recipes that have strange to find ingredients or lots of ingredients that cost too much money to make.
6. I collect the recipes and add them to my yahoo notepad and sort them by category.
7. I also like to try recipes that have been tried and true by friends.
8. I try to find quick and easy recipes.
9. I use the internet often. Most times I search by ingredients on hand. The internet is so much faster than taking out my cook books.
10. Once tried. I only put the recipe in my book if my husband or I like it or if the kids all eat it. I make a note on top of each recipe put in my binder if it is a hit. Otherwise it gets deleted or thrown away.
My menu this week (trying all new recipes)
Monday - Best Baked Chicken and Garlic Red Potatoes
Tuesday - *Beefy Pasta Skillet-20 mins
Wednesday - Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast
Thursday - BBQ chicken pizza
Friday - Mexican Lasagna
Saturday - Sausage in Sweet BBQ Sauce
Sunday - (hoping we're eating out! It's mother's day)
