A Foodtacular Challenge!

The better half will be out of town for the next week, and normally that would mean putting a number of local eateries on speed dial. However, this time around, I've decided I'm going to cook a new dish for dinner every night from Monday to Thursday*.


Given my general ineptitude when it comes to cooking, I spent some time carefully weighing out the pros & cons of this challenge. For example:

  • I would be cooking at home (pro), but I might not like the end result (con); 
  • I would be trying interesting new dishes (pro), but I might end up buying (relatively) exotic ingredients that I'd never use again (con);
  • I would be expanding my culinary knowledge (pro), but would have a ton of dishes to wash every night (con)

And so on ... you get the idea. Nonetheless, I have unfathomably decided to publicly humiliate myself, which might hopefully lead me to never having to cook for the rest of my life (which might not be that long, given I'd be eating my own cooking for a week).

I've already scoped out a number of interesting recipes to try - from stir fries, to simple seeming pasta dishes. I'll post a photo here along with a recipe and completely honest accounts of how I made them.

Wish me luck!


*Why Monday to Thursday? Well, I'm travelling to Boston on Friday, and this Sunday's the Superbowl.

Good Luck babe! looking at how the crepes turned out last night, you are gonna rock this challenge! And I sure hope you do, because that means I get to sample some (hopefully) delicious food when I'm back:-)
