Planning...What Would You Like To See?


I've mentioned before that things are kind of crazy around here right now. We are planning to home school Alexis and I have been working on getting everything ready to go so that when we start lessons on August 4th we can jump right in! In the process of planning I've also been making some plans for Dianne's Dishes, because let's face it things at my house are getting ready to change drastically, but in a good way...Learning is always fun! As an added bonus Alexis starts swim classes this week so that will take up time and then there after she will do lessons once a week instead of three days in a row.

Ice Cream Week was such a hit that I thought it might be fun to have some more themed weeks here and there. That's where you come in. I have a few themed weeks in mind and in fact one themed recipe is currently doing its thing while I type up this little missive to you, but that is neither here nor there. Let's get to the more important issues...What would you like to see as a theme? Any food or types of foods in particular that interest you or maybe even intimidate you? If I like your idea I may put it to use in the future and of course give you credit too.

So talk to me people...What excites you food wise? What would you like to see a week of recipes about? Is there anything you'd like to cook, but just aren't sure where to start? Any genre of food that you just adore? Who knows...I may already be on the same track as you! ;oP Talk to me (or type as the case may be) and let me know what interests you!

P.S. I haven't forgotten the awards. I'm still working on a ton of other things. I'll try to get to them soon I promise! :o)

Hi. I am a long time reader but this is my first comment. I really love your blog. It helps me make good meals for myself. I'd like to see a vegetarian week. I'm trying to cut back on the amount of meat I eat. I'm just learning to cook but you make it seem so simple.

Oooh! Themed weeks! That's awesome! I'd love to see some ethnic food theme weeks -- Mexican, Indian, Thai, etc. And then everything from snacks to dessert in those categories.

Or a breakfast/brunch week. Cake week. Salad week. Sandwich week. Honestly, pretty much anything you do will make that theme exciting to read about!

Welcome Bill! Glad you commented!

You guys have some great ideas! I don't want to ruin any surprises though so I won't say which ones strike my fancy! ;oP

Keep those ideas coming!

All the ideas above sound good! Me and my siblings are also home schooled, we really like it a lot!

You know me . . .I'm all about the crock pot. How about a week of non-traditional crock pot recipes ('cause just about everyone knows how to throw a roast in there, or make stews (or chili!). But I know you have some really fun and yummy CP recipes . . .
