A Year's Worth of Dinner

Maybe I'm being much too ambitious, but that's what I'd like to end up with on this blog in a year from today. My idea is, if I reinvent this blog--not that it was very clear what it was in the first place--to be a record of our dinners, then on some day at 4:30 pm when I should be making dinner and my mind goes blank, I can then inspire myself and maybe even you.

I'm not going to try and make our dinners fancier, and I'm not going to lie about what we have! Just the facts here, even when they aren't pretty!

Getting to the point, for tonight our dinner was:
*bisquick pizza
2 c. baking mix, add 1/2 cup water, knead for one minute w/ additional flour or baking mix. spread into a pizza pan or cookie sheet, thinner is better and top with your favorites. tonight we were a little short on options, having just flown in from LA, so I topped our pizza with sauce that was leftover from another pizza kit, pre-shredded cheese, and on one half, tuna and olives. bake for 20-25 minutes at 425 degrees.
*edamame
*frozen blueberries for Koji...everyone else, including me, didn't get excited about this "dessert" option. not that I needed dessert, since I helped myself to some holiday cookies while I was making dinner.
*beverages: Aogu and I had water, the kids had chocolate milk.

Good luck to me! If all goes well, I will post again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and the next day, and the next day, and....

I'm going to turn Life on Ollie Lane into a year's worth of dinner too. You don't mind if I copy you do you?? Won't be the first time in my life. I'm so determined to stop eating out and stop buying everyone burgers for dinner and this may be just the kick in the butt I need. I won't lie either even though I know I will be tempted. Actually I already want to fib about what we ate on the very first evening of the New Year!
