It’s a leftover kind of day.


One of the biggest adjustments to married life has been, hands down, cooking.

And since making cooking part of my life, bit by bit, I’ve learned my strengths. And my weaknesses.

I cook in large quantities. Creating leftovers. Probably because that’s how I grew up. We were a leftover kind of family.

I’ve learned to follow a recipe, and read it in full (twice) before beginning. Because, seriously, I’ve run into either forgetting an ingredient or buying the wrong thing altogether, one times too many.

I cook the same thing. Again. And again. Lucky for me, Cent never complains.

I typically cook on Mondays or Tuesdays. Which makes the rest of the week, leftover kind of days.

I’ve learned that when making chili, the recipe is probably calling for canned beans, not the dry kind. See this post for reference.

Slowly, I’ve learned to incorporate more vegetables into our diets. Because honestly, if I had it my way, it would be meat and potatoes. This is still a work in progress.

And since I cooked yesterday, and it being Monday, it’s a leftover kind of day.

If you have any recipes or cooking advice, leave it in the comments! I need a couple of new dishes before I completely bore myself.

    Great crockpot recipe: 1 lb lentils, 5 cups water for ~4 hours on high or 6-8 on low. Then whatever sloppy joe sauce (canned or homemade) that you like best for the last 1/2 hour. Sloppy lentils! (or lentil joes)
