"The Experiment"

Ok, I should come up with something better than "the experiment"... but I don't know what to call this. People's comments pretty much confirmed what I suspected. People still check this blog, whenever it's updated, and people are using (some) of the recipes. Believe me, I know what it's like to get stuck in a rut... you make the same 15 things over and over, right? That was the whole point of starting this blog, to get new ideas. Anyways, onto my idea...

Each person who wants to participate takes one week and posts what they ate that week (dinner only). You can do it one of 3 ways: plan ahead and post what you are planning to eat; post as you go along; or wait till the end of the week, and post then. If it's something that seems fairly obvious, like lasagna, then just write what you had, no need for a recipe. Is this making sense?

So, for example, say I had last week. I'd post the list of what we ate (below) and then post all the recipes (one per post).

Monday- lasagna
Tuesday - chicken enchiladas (something I've already posted)
Wednesday - sloppy joes
Thursday - poppyseed chicken
Friday - pizza

(I'm just making this up, so I'm not posting the actual recipes)

If it's something you've already posted, make it a link. If it's a new recipe, then make it into a new post. You'll be responsible for posting 5 recipes for that one week. So when you're all done, you should have at least 6 posts.

I don't know, I'm hoping this works. It would give us all some new ideas, and see what other people are making for dinner. If possible, write what you served with it (rice, salad, rolls, veggies, etc.)

Does this all make sense? If yes, I'll post weeks and people can pick which one they want.

Questions? Comments?

I'm in. So help me ... so help all of us ... if my week winds up being cereal, cereal, pizza, cereal, pizza. :-) I'll try to plan ahead and make sure it's a week I actually am up to cooking.
