I was rehashing my pantry challenge failures this afternoon and am putting out a call for help!
One of our struggles was menu boredom. It’s not that we eat the same meals every week, but we eat the same types of food every week. Primarily American, Mexican, and Italian. And frankly, it all tastes pretty much the same. So I’ve been doing a little research to see if we can incorporate any new flavors into our menus, but it ain’t easy.
We also all have very different palettes and there seems to be very little overlap. Matt doesn’t like peppers, onions, winter squash, artichokes, sweet potatoes, or “newfangled” grains like quinoa or couscous. Allison refuses to eat most vegetables these days, preferring only peas, edamame, corn (if that really counts as a vegetable), spinach on occasion, and sweet potatoes (with brown sugar, of course).
So, what’s a mom to cook??
