Anyway, all that to say that I'm thinking I need to set aside a week soon to share some of the recipes I've been trying lately, or just some of our favorites that I haven't posted on the blog before. I'm sure I'm probably not the only one who likes trying new things, so maybe someone else would benefit from some of them too. :)

Inspired to cook (finally!)
Before we went to Ohio, I was totally in a cooking slump. I just plain didn't feel like cooking, and even though I had new recipes I was interested in trying, I kept making the same old things over and over. I think part of the problem was that I didn't feel like cooking anything in the heat wave we were having! But since coming home from vacation, I have been feeling inspired. Maybe it was partly due to not having to cook anything for a whole week, and partly because it's cooler here now, but anyway . . . our meals have been more interesting since we got home (mostly). :) On the menu yesterday were crockpot ribs, corn on the cob, garlic mashed potatoes, and sliced cucumbers. (Jim came home and wanted to know what he did to deserve that!) Tonight's supper was a variation on shepherd's pie, made from last night's leftovers, with angel biscuits on the side. Mmmmm. And a few nights ago I even tried making homemade wheat thins for the first time (which were a success, I might add)!
