What’s For Dinner?

Hello!  Good Morning, Good Afternoon, and Good Night.  Depending on what part of the world you are from.  Feel free to share with me what part of the world you are from.  No, don’t give me your address but just give me a general region you are from.  I am from the U.S.A and my family and I live in the Midwest where we enjoy interesting weather patterns such as snow in October and sunshine and seventy degrees in January.  We also, sometimes, get 50 degrees in July.  You might have heard the saying, “If you don’t like the weather here, just wait ten minutes and it will change” (Not necessarily for the better) LOL!  I do enjoy the weather in my region because it is never boring.  We could have ice and snow in the morning and by nightfall, have sixty degrees and clear skies.  My husband does not care for the cold and has longed to live in a warmer climate like Florida or Arizona.  Someday, hopefully we can move to one of those states.
Come on in and sit a bit.  Get your cup of coffee or hot cocoa and read a few of my entries.  I plan on sharing lots of ideas about wholesome and inviting meals to make for your family or friends.  I enjoy sharing with people some new recipes I have tried and hate to keep that to myself.  If I can help some exhausted, overworked mom or dad out there to be inspired enough to spend less time and money on fast food and make a good wholesome meal to put on the table for you to enjoy together, then I will have done my job. 
Fixing dinner is more than just food.  It’s a gathering of people, whether it be friends or family, a church fellowship, or a single person with their cat, spending quality time together preparing, eating, and cleaning up and making memories and enjoying the fruits of their labor.  Perhaps you are just opening up a can of soup or making a beautiful spread for you and the people you love or care for.  Either way, you are creating a warm memory or an experience that nourishes the body and pleases the soul.  Making a good meal is in your control.  You are the artist and the empty canvas is that empty pot or skillet and is ready for you to make something happen. 
Browse around and feel free to comment and share with me and the world your recipes or stories that were brought on by trying to make a recipe that Grandma used to make.  Also, feel free to share some disasters.  Those are my favorites especially if it results in good old-fashioned laughter and fun.
