I haven't ...

picked up a paintbrush in over a week.  This makes me feel sad.  Not sure what the problem is, but it probably has something to do with there not being enough hours in the day!  Hopefully later today my hands will get painty and inky ...

This week I have a plan.  I want to cook more, for two reasons - I love to cook proper food and I don't do it enough, and I want my family to eat better food.  Also I have a groaning bookcase full of cookery books.  (Well, they're not actually in a bookcase, but if they were, it would be groaning!).  Whenever I sit down to plan a weekly menu I just get overwhelmed with all the books I have and all the different recipes I want to cook and end up getting nowhere.  So I have decided to concentrate on one book a week and cook as many meals as I can from that book!

To kick off this week, I will be using Hungry? - a book by innocent.

Hungry?

The recipes I'll be trying are:  Banana and Bran Flake Muffins, Surfer's Pancakes, Frog-in-a-Ditch, Fail Safe Spag Bol, One Mean, Green Fish Pie, Slow Cooked Beef Stew, Mexican Chicken Fajitas, Veggie Burgers and Chips, and kicking off today with ... The Best Roast Chicken and Stuffing Ever!

I'll also be attempting one or more of the following baked goods!  Apple Cake with Honey Icing, Bronte's Amazing Carrot Cake and Chocolate and Beetroot Brownies!

We'll see how far I actually get :D

Sounds great. know what you mean about not enough time to be creative. The photo thing is about all I am managing at the moment.

Great idea. I started working through Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals book laste year and had some really nice food (and leftovers) but I've fallen out of the habit again. Though I have been baking more, even fancy stuff from recipe books, as we get through a lot of cake at work.

I'm trying to do a 52 new recipe challenge this year- and still finding myself behind! I do have a series of books and plan to cook one from each book this year.

I have a groaning bookshelf of cookery books, too!
