In 2009, a friend gave me an extra date book for the year. So I decided to write down all the dinners Rick and I had that year (anyone would think of that). At the end of 2009, I had a diary of meals and I didn't want to keep it up, so I decided to compile the recipes of the interesting foods we had eaten. Brad had asked me to write out some recipes a year or so before, and it seemed like a good way to do it. So in January, 2010, I started typing in the recipes and here they are.
This collection is not meant to be the best of all our recipes or all our favorites or every thing we've cooked and liked. It's just meals from one year. What I'd like is for all the family to use it and add to it. When you try something you like, email it to the rest of us and we can add it to the blog. So this is just a starting place.
My plan for next year is to do an hors d'oeuvres (I always have to look up the spelling of that word in Rick's college dictionary - and don't tell me about spell check - I trust the dictionary) chapter. You all know that hors d'oeuvres are my favorite foods. But lunch things and breakfast foods and special drinks would all be good.
So MERRY CHRISTMAS, 2010 and many more happy years and meals!
