Just Plain Silly

I was cleaning out and organizing files on my computers lately and realized that I have so many new recipes saved in various files but have tried none of them. That seems like a pitiful waste of effort. So one of my goals for this summer is to try as many of those recipes as I can. And if I keep skipping over one, then no matter how great it sounds or the picture looks, chances are I'm never going to make it, so I'll delete it. 

I'm going to let the family choose between two for this week, either a Cheesy Ham and Mushroom Pasta, or Roasted Pork Loin With Cider and Chunky Applesauce, because I happen to have a beautiful pork loin in my freezer AND some nice, chopped ham.

It's just plain silly to have hundreds of recipes saved and never give any of them a try!

I'm terrible about this, too. I have piles of printouts of recipes that I want to try! I've been making an effort to try some new things lately, but I'm guilty of going back to some that we both like. Thank goodness Ken isn't picky about things and is always willing to try something different (although I know which things to limit for him!). Although there have been a few failures, at least then you know that you can pitch that recipe because you'll never make it again!


That sounds like a plan. Let us know which ones you like the best.
