From car repairs to home carpentry it also has opened my eyes to appreciate what others are doing as a business for their livelihoods. It has helped make a difference in wiser spending as well as saving money even if I do not do something myself. Knowing that my family has developed this habit of eating out more than eating at home getting them to eat typical home cooked meals more often is not going to be to easy. The flickering light bulb moment or idea mentioned earlier was to see about getting some recipes from the restaurants that I could cook at home with the idea of saving some money initially. I also began to see how we have lost touch with the skill of cooking. We sure have all become masters of the microwave but the rest of the kitchen starts to get a little sketchy.
This may be a silly reflection but highlights the points mentioned above. When I was growing up I could not stand the taste of cauliflower. I saw no purpose for this food. To me it was a useless vegetable that took up space on our planet. I am not joking! Later when I actually worked in a supper club one of the appetizers we served was deep fried cauliflower with a side of cheese sauce. Ever since then cauliflower has become one of my favorite foods and in all of the traditional ways from raw to steamed and I still love the deep fried method as well. If it were not for that deep fried recipe I may never have had the pleasure of enjoying this healthy and now tasty food. I think it is important to recognize Restaurants themselves whether they be a fast food independent mom and pop big chain type or even 5 star all bring in millions of people every day across our nation.
Recipe Book Instead of storing your recipes in the "haphazard shoebox" fashion how about converting them into a nice recipe book? If most of your recipes are on index or recipe cards a photo album with plastic sleeves may work particularly well for you as long as the card fits comfortably in the slot. If you have quite a large collection of recipes try obtaining a large family photo album that allows eight to twelve slots per sleeve (front and back). The order you put the cards in is totally up to you as your recipe book should reflect your preference. Some people prefer to sort based on main dishes desserts breads/pastries beverages etc. while others prefer alphabetical order. If you dont have your recipes on cards or if youre like most people you might have your recipes on papers and cards of all shapes and sizes. If this is the case you might want to think about typing them all up and printing them off.
