Okay, so I was very excited to be a part of the J Project for the month of February. Though, to be honest, I was more optimistic about the cooking part than the shopping part. If you have met me, you already know I have a little bit of a shopping issue (I have gotten better over the last couple of years...sort of). The cooking part, I have only recently started to really enjoy cooking. Some may be quite surprised about how domesticated I have become over the years! Poor Matt, I don't think he ate a home cooked meal the first 5 years of our marriage. Well, that is unless we ate dinner at my parent's or his parent's house.
So now the month review, it was the opposite of what I thought the results would be. I did really well with not buying anything new. I did not buy a thing!! Wow, I did not think that was going to happen! It actually wasn't that bad, I didn't really have any temptations throughout the month. Matt was very happy!
Now for the recipes, I thought I would do pretty well with this. Um, not so much! So I picked February because it was a short month and I thought that would benefit me somehow with the shopping. Instead, the first week we were all sick and I did not cook any of the recipes. No excuses, I know! I only made 5 of the 15 recipes, so horrible! The 5 I did make, turned out pretty good though. My favorite one, was the basil and lemongrass chicken. So my goal is to make the other 10 recipes this month.
This was a lot of fun, I think I will try again and join later this year! You J girls are awesome!! Hopefully, next time I will do better!!!
