Little known fact: I used to have a food blog called "Nana's Fabulous Life." It was inspired by my Nana (who was Danish and loved to cook and loved to put butter on every single sandwich) and Nana's recipe boxes, which I've carted around between several apartments and two houses. I started the blog when blogging was like the thing to do. Then I abandoned it, like I often abandon things like shoes, blogs, ideas, hair ties and bobby pins.
But, I never abandoned my love of recipes and cookbooks! Since today was the first day of the rest of our lives (i.e. the first Monday of the New Year), I needed to get our meals aligned! And with all of us at home, endlessly for all three meals, plus 1,000 snacks a day, planning our meals stops the hangry!
And, meal planning is a great excuse to pour over my collection of cookbooks. I have around 60 (maybe 70, I don't know. I am not counting). I love cooking my go-to recipes, but I also love whipping up something brand new!
